Two friends discover the true story of why an organ preservation factory was shut down and the factory’s owner cast into ruin after a mysterious industrial accident.
This story is from Year 8, The Year of Revisitation
I revisit one of the stories I’ve already written, and write a new standalone story connected to or inspired by the existing one through a character, a place, an object, a continuation of events (okay, sequel), and so on.
A shuttered biomedical factory, now the haunt of strays and thrill-seeking trespassers, is the perfect subject for one investigative journalist’s next story. After months of research, she’s dragged her friend to the old factory in the hopes of finding some real answers to the vague scandals surrounding the factory. (Now that’s friendship.) The trip was worth it. They find something. Something far more important than they were expecting to find. And immediately after finding it, they receive a phone call from someone who knows exactly where they are and what they’ve just found. That’s where this story begins.
While this week’s story does (technically) stand alone, it is a direct sequel to the Year Five story entitled “The Strange Chamber,” in which the journalist first introduces the long-abandoned organ factory that’s become a local urban legend, and in which she and her friend approach the grounds and enter the factory…
[Video description: Duration is 9 seconds. Digital drawing of the front facade of a dilapidated brick factory building flanked by dry bushes. Barely visible on a sign under the top arch is the word “Fabronical.” The sound of a howling wind plays throughout the video. The words “New Short Story” is displayed, centered and in all caps. The text vanishes and the story’s title “The Dark Organ Factory” fades in. The title vanishes, and the website “storyfeather.com” rises from the bottom of the screen to center.]
