Chilled to his bones (and soul) with what Linoge told him about his cannibal mother in hell, and his own behavior on the night of his mother's passing, Robbie becomes a changed man. He's determined to never go to hell and to right the wrong done to Michael. Robbie convinces the townspeople that the first step is to contact Michael and ask his forgiveness and to see if they can help in anyway.
Michael does forgive the townspeople in part for he realizes if he is to grow the spiritual power in him to defeat Linoge, he must do so.
Michael goes back to Little Tall where he is greeted with a hero's welcome.
From a small copse, an obscured Ralphie watches his father and other townsfolk
Ralphie and Linoge meet on a seashore. Linoge tells Robbie how he has always loved the sea and tells him how he was once a sailor. Ralphie is hesitant and Linoge tells him why. It is clear the relationship with Ralphie has become strained. In an instant, Linoge takes him to a remote Alaskan location where there is a bear and her cubs feeding on some berries. The mother bear, seeing Linoge and Ralphie, charges them. "Kill her," Linoge tells Ralphie coldly. Ralphie does so showing his growing power. "Well done my son," Linoge beams. "Now for something harder," Linoge says and in an instant they are in a dog kennel. Linoge tells Ralphie he wants him to kill every dog in the kennel. Ralphie can't.
Alton Hatcher is killed by Linoge as the plan they had goes some way awry.
Those are just some musings. The story, this time, has a happy ending. Ralphie is rescued by Michael, Linoge is vanquished by Michael and sent to perdition's horror, and in the final scene, Ralphie is re-united with the townspeople -- and his mother. While a growing romantic interest has been kindled by Michael and the TV reporter, she realizes even before Michael that he still loves Molly. Molly, Ralphie, and Michael are all re-united on Little Tall island.
Man! See what happens when you are unemployed and can just think and type at the computer for an hour or two? I welcome any ideas by anyone. Perhaps we could get an "idea train" going with people's best ideas so as to further the story.
Like I said, I would [BGCOLOR]love [/BGCOLOR]to see a sequel of Storm of The Century.
