Cold was written by Dudley J. Fetzer, June 6,

similarity to anyone, living or dead, is purely coincidental.
story is about friends and foe. About beasts
and death. About murder and
mystery. It’s alpha and omega…a
beginning and an ending, but who is the killer? Is it the beast, or is it the weird news
editor of the local paper. You will
have to use your imagination, because I just don’t know…. hmmmmmmmmm
maybe it’s me…

CHAPTER I . . . Beginnings
it’s been three days now, but let me start at the beginning . . .
lights momentarily dimmed, the air hung heavy with a musty scent and the
noise was deafening as the old newspaper press came to life. Residents of Blooming Grove and the
surrounding area had received their news from the Republic for over
seventy-eight years, but the years had not been kind to the old newspaper
building or the town. Once a growing farming
community, Blooming Grove had obviously seen its better days. Only the old folks and people like Dan and
Michelle Lowery were still calling the now run down little berg home. Dan and Michelle were your typical girl and
boy next door. They had a cute
three-bedroom brick ranch house just on the edge of town. Anytime you went by that way, Abby, the
golden retriever, would be running and jumping against her nylon rope in
hopes of busting loose so she could see the wide world that was Blooming Grove, Indiana. But Abby never got loose from her nylon
confines except when Dan would take it off and let her run after the tennis
ball he’d throw. Of course then Dan
would spend the next fifteen minutes chasing Cujo,
which is what he would call her during these romps, trying to get the ball
back. Dan started calling Abby Cujo because after he chased her she would start to
slobber and foam from the mouth. He
claimed she was Stephen King’s Cujo in a Labrador’s body, but really she
was a good old dog and Dan really loved her.
