Chapter 12 from a short story

So we know by now what happened in Crystal Lake eight years prior to Sarah coming back to visit her bapcia for the summer. We know she has a fragile relationship with Travis and a budding relationship with Tyh. She learns of the devastating attack that Pamela Voorhees committed eight years prior and of the death of her childhood friend, Melinda.

Dan Dubois and Dana Roy were just about to get cozy when something interrupted them, prompting Dan to leave and Dana to investigate, leading to her untimely death.

Sarah and Tyh have gotten jobs working at the newly re-opened Camp Crystal Lake. Sarah meets some of Tyh's friends, Jessica Paquette and her boyfriend Jacob Tibbett, who later come face to face with death.

The main couple's relationship gets stronger and they are anxiosuly awaiting the party to begin later that night. They have supper with Bapcia before heading out to the party at Camp Crystal Lake to celebrate the opening and to get better acquanited with the rest of the counselors.

They meet up with Dan Dubois and Liane Labrie by the hiking trail where the foursome splits up, leaving Liane to trek the trail alone. While the other three are busy canoeing to the Camp, Liane is hunted down and murdered by Jason Voorhees.

Before the trio have a chance to dock at the beach camp, Michael O'Shay and his girlfriend, Sandra Clarke, are fatally attacked by psychopath Jason Voorhees. The trio finally arrive at the beach and are ready to party with their friends and Tyh is anticipating presenting Sarah to his friends.

They mingle togheter around the bonfire, Sarah getting better acquainted with some of Tyh's friends and realise some are nicer then others. As the night grows and the teens get intoxicated they slowly start to seperate. Kevin and Meredith head towards their cabin. We learn that Meredith is cheating on her boyfriend with different people. The rain has started to fall and the teens are getting restless.

While Yasmina and Patrick head to their cabin, Meredith and Kevin are ruthlessly murdered by Jason Voorhees. Dan, Sarah, and Tyh start a game of cards that quickly turn to a more heated session between the later two. They ask Dan to give them a moment alone leading to Dan's murder.

Yasmina and Patrick return from their cabin. Yasmina was sleeping but Patrick/Jason continued his murder spree and we eventually learn of his true origin. However, the remaining trio are unaware of Patrick's dark secret.

He returns from his cabin and leads Tyh outside to the docks. He struggles with Mother before finally attacking Tyh and drowning him in Crystal Lake.

Yasmina and Sarah are getting better acquainted when Jason stumbles into their cabin. They attempt to flee, resulting in Yasmina's untimely demise. Sarah runs and hides inside the main lodge where she finally finds out that Patrick Vance is Jason Voorhees. She tries to attack him, wounding him severly in the shoulder before he knocks her out.

This is what transpired:

I’m Fighting for All of You

Jason was sitting in front of Sarah. He was looking through her cell phone
and laughed when he heard Krystyna’s panicked voice in several messages.
Sarah could only hear a faint murmur emitting from the phone but she knew
it was her bapcia. She shut her eyes, creating a river of tears across her
lids. She was trying to lose herself, grow numb, and shrink away. Abandon.
She heard him throw the phone against the wall.

He was shouting at her and she could tell he was close by the amount of
saliva that was being spat on her as he belittled her. Her body ached and
her head throbbed. She was faint and the feeling of losing blood was
slowly draining her. He continued his tirade and sat back down.

She wasn’t paying attention, however. She was in a meadow of carnations.
The wind blew pedals over her as she lay in the field as if a carnation
herself. The breeze carried a fragrant smell, one mixed with sweetness and
bitterness. She was laughing with someone. She looked over and saw her
mother. Someone else was touching her hand. She turned to the other side
and saw her bapcia.

“Isn’t it beautiful” She said to the women she cared most about.

“It is” They answered together. “But isn’t always such” her mother continued.

“Sometimes the smallest weed will fight to live amongst the carnations”
Krystyna added, holding on dearly to Sarah’s hands. “They haven’t the
right, though, and they know it. Weeds have their own field.”

“There isn’t a weed in sight” Sarah said, sitting up and looking around
the endless field. It stretched for miles and miles. She couldn’t see
where it ended or where it began.

“That is because sometimes they cover themselves up. They have masks”
Krystyna said, sitting up herself. Eva remained on the ground, humming
sweet tunes from Sarah’s childhood. It made Sarah smile.

“How do you know which ones are the weeds, then?” Sarah asked as she
twirled her auburn hair around her fingers.

“You don’t” Krystyna answered. “Not until they remove their masks”

“But then it’s too late” Sarah pleaded. She looked down at her mother who
was still humming lullabies. “Why isn’t mother getting up? Why is she

“Because you have lost her” A voice answered which didn’t belong to
Krystyna. Sarah found Travis sitting in front of her. He was all in white
and his shaggy mane danced in the wind. Krystyna had mysteriously
disappeared. “Just like you lost your bapcia and eventually me. Then all
of us. Even you.”

“What is going on?”

“You’ve lost hope, Sarah.”  Travis sighed. “When you lose that, you lose
everything. You have what nobody else has.” He continued wisely.

“I don’t even know what you’re talking about, Travis. Why are you even here?”

“I’m here to help you figure out what you are fighting for.” He added
while gently grabbing onto her hands. He looked in her eyes and smiled.
“Sarah, you don’t have to wait any longer. The weed has removed its mask.”

“What weed? Why are you all being so cryptic? This field is alive with

“If you don’t focus, Sarah, I will disappear forever. You will be alone in
this field for eternity.”

“I don’t even like you anymore, Travis. I’ve moved on.” Sarah whispered
looking away from her past love. He bowed his head and sighed.

“So has he” He answered to Sarah’s surprise. “You have to fight for what
remains. You have to for all of them.”

Sarah looked around and saw everyone she had ever met in her life. They
we’re all there. They smiled and waved, some even talked amongst each
other. Yasmina stepped out of the crowd and looked directly at Sarah.
Although she could see lips move and expressions of laughter, no sound
could be heard except for the voice of the girl looking at Sarah.

“The weed has removed the mask. It’s vulnerable, Sarah. You have to end
this. You have to fight. Do you know what you’re fighting for? DO YOU?!”
Yasmina screamed the last part, sounding more military then Sarah had

“I’ve always known what I was fighting for.” She said, finally realizing
what she had to do. She had to end this. She looked at a select group of
people who stood out from the crowd. They were the only ones looking back
at her; Kevin, Meredith, Yasmina, Dan, Tyh, Sandra, Liane, Jacob, Michael,
Dana, and Jessica. “I’m fighting for all of you”
