Scarecrow of 1889

There once was a boy who was an orphan and suffered abuse from his village residents. The only friend he had was the dummy scarecrow on the field, whom he talked to. One day, a wealthy man brutally beat the boy. The next morning, the wealthy man was found dead, and the scarecrow was covered in blood.  Terrified, the villagers were convinced that the scarecrow had come to life to avenge its tormented friend. And it was the last scarecrow ever placed again in the fields, considering it a sign of death.  —   After scarecrow dolls begin appearing in the streets of Riddleford next to murder victims, the town is thrown into chaos. When the hunt for the mystery scarecrow murderer begins, it is only a matter of time before the famous Frontier Hall Opera House employees are subjected to suspicion, each protecting a secret of their own. But is that all that is going on? Or is there something unseen?

Inside the Prison

"Take this!" The guard shoved the tray of barely edible food towards Sylvester with a dismissive flick of his wrist.

"I am innocent!" Sylvester protested, his voice echoing off the cold, hard walls. It felt like an eternity since he'd been brought in.

"That's what they all say," the guard retorted, rolling his eyes as he walked away.

Now transferred to the main prison, Sylvester scanned his surroundings desperately for any sign of assistance. However, he was encircled by hardened criminals, and the officers who visited had already labelled him guilty, ignoring his pleas and dismissing his reports with cold indifference.
