(此处接第一卷,樵夫的妻子)直到数年前的一个晚上,一位久经沙场的战士行于退伍返乡途中。为了省几个金币,他决定步行穿越憔悴之森。

出发后第一天日间风平浪静,士兵轻快的奔行在林间主道上。当夜幕降临,他展开铺盖,生起一堆小火,烤起了打来的兔子(当晚餐)。“真是愉快的一天”,(餐后)他感慨着进入了梦乡。

半夜,士兵被远处若有若无的哭泣声惊醒。他第一反应认为这是强盗在耍花招,所以紧握剑柄假寐,以期于其到来之时发动突然袭击。数分钟后,哭声渐远,终不可闻。后半夜里,士兵睡的很不踏实。

第二天,士兵早早的从糟糕的睡眠中醒转,想要尽可能快的穿过森林。不管昨晚听到的东西是什么,还是走为上计。渐进黄昏,天空下起了瓢泼大雨,士兵搭起了一个小小的帐篷,以期晚上睡觉时不会被雨淋湿。

昨晚的遭遇仍历历在目,所以他很长时间都无法入睡,但最终还是睡着了。

是夜,他再次被哭声惊醒,这次听起来就在帐篷外面。士兵抓起剑悄悄爬出帐篷。在火光映照下,他看到了一个以手捂面正在哭泣的女人的背影。

士兵壮起胆来,问那女人怎么了。

女人没有回答。

他悄悄的接近女人,但还没到跟前,女人猛地回过头来,对他发出一阵凄厉的尖叫。随即手持斧头劈了过来,但是甫一近身,(斧头)便消失的无影无踪(无法对士兵造成伤害)。

士兵丢下帐篷和行囊,只握着剑夺路而逃。整个夜里他都在全速逃跑,直到路上出现第一缕曙光。

第三天,阳光明媚,但是惊慌且缺乏睡眠的士兵没有心思注意这些。他正以最快的速度移动着,期望能在夜幕降临前走出这片森林。

天色逐渐暗了下来,他在路边找到一间小屋。他想这间屋子真是绝佳的防守地点。进入屋子以后,他花了不少时间堵住门窗,现在任何东西都进不来了。

尽管他已做了万全准备,但仍然无法睡着。他坐在曾是小屋卧室的床上,紧盯着被堵住的门窗。不过随着眼皮越来越沉重,终于还是沉沉睡去。

夜里,他被一阵大笑惊醒,仿佛就在堵上的门的另一侧,尽管不想承认,但听起来很像上次那个女人。

士兵冲破被堵上的门进入主室,夜色中,那个幽灵女人正手持战斧对着地面发出歇斯底里的狂笑。

他毫不犹豫的挥剑砍向幽灵,但发现普通攻击根本无济于事。于是他向女人丢去一个火球术卷轴,女人在爆炸中烟消云散。

幽灵死了,煎熬终于结束了。

当夜,士兵睡了个好觉,并在第二天走了很长一段路。终于在太阳下山之前走出了森林,蓦然回首,昨日种种,恍若隔世。

然而他可以发誓,在他转身准备离开之际,呜咽声再次从林中传来。

The Cabin in the Woods
Volume II
by Mogen Son of Molag
A tale of a soldier and a sobbing ghost


Late one night a few seasons ago, a soldier was returning home after several bloody battles. He decided he would save some gold and decided to cross the pine forest on foot.
The first day of his journey was rather uneventful, the soldier stuck to the main path and kept a brisk pace. When it started getting dark he setup his bedroll, built a small fire and cooked up some rabbit he had caught. "A fine day indeed" he thought to himself as he fell asleep.
Partway through the evening the soldier was woken up by soft sobbing in the distance. He grabbed his sword assuming it to be a bandit trick, but pretended to sleep so he could get the jump on them. After a few minutes the sobbing started moving away from his camp until he could no longer hear it. For the rest of the night slept [sic] with one eye open.
Day two the soldier awoke from what rotten sleep he could catch and started off through the forest at a quicker pace, intending to put distance between himself and whatever he had heard last night. As the day went on it began to rain heavy so the soldier built himself a little shelter for the evening so he could remain dry while he slept.
It took him a little longer to fall asleep with thoughts of the previous night fresh in his mind but he eventually slept.
This time he awoke to sobbing that sounded like it was right outside his shelter. The soldier grabbed his sword and crawled out of the shelter. In front of the fire he saw the back of a ghostly woman sobbing into her hands.
The soldier mustered his courage and asked her what was wrong.
No answer.
He began to slowly approach but before he could reach her she turned and screamed at him. The ghostly woman raised an axe and began to run at the soldier, disappearing before she made contact.
The soldier took off into the night with just his sword in hand. He ran until the first light of dawn where he started down the road again, as fast as he could move.
The third day was bright and sunny, but the soldier, rattled and sleepless, didn't even notice. He moved as fast as he could trying to get through the forest before nightfall.
As darkness began to fall he saw a cabin just off the road and thought to himself it would be a good place to hunker down for the night. After arriving at the cabin he spent some time blocking the doors and windows, nothing would get in.
Despite his preparations, he could not sleep. He sat in what used to be the cabin's bedroom staring at the barricaded door shaking. Eventually he could keep his eyes open no longer and fell asleep.
This time he awoke to laughing on the other side of the barricaded door. It sounded like the woman from before, but he refused to believe it was her.
The soldier burst through the barricaded door into the main room to find the ghostly woman from the night before staring at the ground laughing hysterically with axe in hand.
He began to relentlessly attack the ghostly woman but he could feel his strikes were less effective. He used a scroll of firebolt which drew a scream from her and she exploded, disappearing.
The ordeal was over, the ghost was gone.
The soldier slept well that night and the next day made excellent distance through the woods. As the sun began to set he came out on the other side of the forest and looked back, remembering the days before.
As he turned and started walking away from the woods he could swear he heard the sobbing again.
