Camera Shy  
CF wanted horror…  I suck at horror…  XO  But still…  The end kind of…  disturbed me…  O.o…

Characters: MinagawaXRini; MakiXRini (One-sided)
Prompt: http://romantokyo.deviantart.com/art/The-Horror-Show-63153598


There was once a camera that could capture the hearts and souls of living beings…  The camera was stored away in Minagawa’s attic, never intended to be used again.  Once was more than enough…  One time was regrettable…  One time overwhelmed the man with guilt, for he came to realize that, through the lens, the camera would steal their souls and take them into the deepest pits of Hell, never to return again.

It had been years since he had last touched it…  So long that he had finally forgotten about it.  Now he was in his early twenties serving as a kitchen cook and dating the loveliest and most interesting woman he had the pleasure of coming across.

Of course, there was one person that was jealous of their relationship.  Jealous of him for getting her…  Maki…

Maki had tried time after time after time to impress the girl.  Nothing would seem to work.  Now, Maki had decided to play dirty.  She seemed to see so much in Minagawa…  But what if Minagawa wasn’t all that he was cracked up to be?  That’s what he intended to do, was to prove to Rini that Minagawa was a man not to be messed with.

He decided to pick a time and ‘visit’ Minagawa whilst he wasn’t home.  During this visit, Maki rummaged for any kind of ‘evidence’ he could find, finally making his way to the attic.  He was looking long and hard for something, finally coming across a dusty, old camera.  He picked it up and examined it.  He wasn’t sure exactly how old it was…  but it ‘did’ look like it had some film in it.  Maybe film that needed to be developed?  Maybe film showing off one of Minagawa’s horrible ‘experiments’.  This would be good!

He had taken the camera to work one day, with the intentions of going afterwards to get the pictures developed.  How it got into Rini’s hands that day, he wasn’t exactly sure.  To cover up, Maki claimed it to be a camera he ‘found lying around the house,’ not disclosing ‘who’s’ house, exactly.  To make the story believable, he offered to take her picture.  Rini accepted the offer, talking Minagawa into taking the picture with her.

Of course, Minagawa followed through, to Maki’s disappointment.  Minagawa stared at the camera, something familiar about it.  Before he could ask to look at it, the camera flashed.  Both, Minagawa and Rini, fell dead on the spot.

XD Poor Rini and Minagawa....and poor Maki!

The concept you used with the camera stealing souls was awesome. It reminded me of the video game Fatal Frame where you have to capture ghosts using a camera, and the movie Shutter.

I love this drabble. It's not completely horror, but it does have that horror feel to it without being freakishly scary.

Also, I noticed that you like to use ellipses (...) a lot. XD

But I love this drabble! Thanks so much for writing it! ^_^

You're welcome! Lulz! I don't recall ever really reading a horror story... At least not in years! XD Haven't really watched any horror movies, either. :3

Shutter, even. Sounds interesting! XD

And ellipses are my friend. :3 They get a little crazy sometimes, though! I try to watch them! XD

I feel so bad for them! ;____; Especially Maki. What he did was wrong, but he didn't mean for it to go out of proportion like this.

I've only seen the Thai version of Shutter, which is uploaded on youtube with English subtitles. I haven't seen the American version, though I kind of don't want to. American versions of Thai/Japanese horror movies usually suck. >.<

I could see Minagawa coming back from the dead to haunt Maki for what he did. XD
