Will Parsons is part of a small UN team sent to the Democratic Republic of Congo to investigate a series of bizarre happenings. Entire villages have been mysteriously abandoned, the occupants of these remote villages seeming to disappear without a trace.
The local military man, Ndobe Ngeralt, believes the disappearances are the work of a witch, whom he claims lives in the rough, rocky hills north of the city of Mbuji-Mayi.
Doubting any such supernatural explanation, Will fears he may have stumbled across something even worse: a new, horrifying infection, with symptoms disturbing enough to cause entire villages to simply be left empty, abandoned by any survivors.
What they ultimately discover is the stuff of nightmares.
A short horror story of approximately 9000 words.

About the Author
Alpert L Pine lives and writes in a small cabin, off the grid, in the Northwest United States. Once per week, he treks to the nearest town on foot—rain, snow or shine—and spends the day transferring his material into a digital format, with the help of the kindly librarians whom he has befriended. When he's not writing, he spends much of his time with a metal detector, looking for a rumored Templar treasure which is said to be buried somewhere nearby. To date, he's found a few nails, and an old Liberty head penny. For free stories, news about past and future releases, and more, visit his website: AlpertLPine.com
