I'm assuming I can put this here... So yeah, a lot of you know me for the Transformers movie fics. But I thought about trying something different. Don't worry, TF5 will still go on, but I thought'd I'd also give this a shot since writing about Transformers was getting a little old for me. As maybe some of you know, I'm a huge Nightmare on Elm Street fan. Freddy has to be my favorite slasher. One thing I always thought was interesting about him was his past. Of course, this was later fucked up in some of the sequels (A daughter? Dream Demons? Really?). Bu I think the remake looks FANTASTIC. I don't care what anyone else says, I'm so ready for more Freddy carnage in the form of Jackie Earle Haley. So let's get on with it. Here is my prequel to the NOES remake, SPRINGWOOD SECRETS. Caution, this fan fic is recommended for mature readers. Reader discretion is highly advised. PROLOGUE *The setting is at an orphanage in Springwood Ohio. Inside, a nun watches over many children playing together. All except for one. A young eight year old boy. His mother was a worker at the orphanage until she was killed by an escaped convict. This only happened three monthes earlier, and the boy now stayed at the same orphanage his dear mother had worked at for so many years. He sat alone, rarely speaking since his mothers death. A child walks up to the boy, his name is Thomas. The only one who was ever kind to him.* Thomas: Hey. *The boy looked up and smirked at Thomas. He wasn't really happy in any way right now, but he appreciated the kindness that Thomas showed him.* Boy: Hey. Thomas: We were going to go and play hide and seek at recess, if you wanted to come with. Boy: No...that's okay. Thomas: C'mon it'll be fun! Boy: I don't think many of the other kids like me. *The boy looked over Thomas' shoulder to see three other young kids look at him like he was a freak.* Thomas: Well...that's because they don't even know you that well. Boy: I don't talk to people that much. Thomas: Why not? Boy: I don't like to talk about it. *Thomas smiled.* Thomas: You should try doing more talking then. Boy: I don't know... Thomas: C'mon, come play! *The nun looked at her watch and then at the kids.* Nun: Alright children! Recess! Everyone line up and we'll go outside for half an hour! *All of the kids excitedly got up out of there seats and went to the door. Thomas stayed with the boy.* Thomas: You coming or what? Boy: Well...Okay. *The boy smiled and walked up with Thomas in line with the other children.* Thomas: My name's Thomas, but you can call me Tommy. What's you're name? *The boy smiled a hopeful smile, his blue eyes cheerful for once under his long brown hair.* Boy: My name's Freddy Krueger. Nice to meet you.
