The Blood In The Banks

A myth submitted to the site by Naman


In the year 1984, the streets of London were infested with rats. Every day, thousands of people would die from black death.

It was one early morning at the end of summer when a strange man walked into the town. Everyone came rushing out of their houses to see.The strange man payed no attention to the townsfolk and walked along. He wore a bright blue cloak with 'C.P.' sewed on it in gold silk. he wore colorful clothes and a strange white mask. He walked up to the mayor and stopped.
"Who are you, and what do you want?" questioned the mayor. "I am colored piper and I can get rid of all the rats, if you pay a good price."
The mayor thought long about it, then agreed.

The piper pulled out a wooden flute and started playing a melodious tune. Suddenly, all the rats started to follow him all the way to the well where they jumped in.

When the piper arrived at the town, the mayor refused to pay because it was too much to afford.

The next night while everyone was celebrating, a man wearing a black mask and blood red clothes with 'D.P.' sewed onto them came walking into the town. Then, he stopped, looked around, and laughed as if he were evil. Suddenly as quick as lightning, he drew out a golden sword. Without hesitation, he stabbed the sword into the ground. The pipers smiled as the ground split in half sucking all the people in....except the piper. The piper laughed one last time and soon was out of sight.

Ever since then, the pipers ghost haunt's the town of London. As for the townsfolk, well, they were found 2 years later, on the banks of the River Thames covered in blood and chunks of their skin were missing.
