Being the local livestock farmer made Malaki Smasherstone well known in the Saylorsburg area. His slaughter was the best in the area and everyone knew him at the Lake House Hotel. It was common knowledge that he sold the best piece of meat, and Malaki was proud of that. But when a mining explosion killed and wounded so many men, the town became dependent on Malaki to provide for their families and the entire town. That’s when things changed.
Malaki started to feel serious pressure from the town and had visions of running out of livestock. He thought if that happened, his business would fail, and he would be letting the entire town down. He began to conduct some experiments to see if he could improve his livestock’s growth to ensure he could keep up with the town’s needs and desires. Malaki always tasted his meat before sending it out to make sure it was the tastiest meat around. The farmer threw himself into his work and continued the experiments, increasing the amount of growth hormones. He became greedy and his eating became uncontrollable. Because of the extent of the experiments and the amount of meat he was consuming, Malaki started to take the shape of the animals he was eating. His skin started to toughen up like leather, and the local townspeople noticed these changes and became fearful. This brought on a town-wide panic and everyone started to speak out against him. Business began failing; which is what Malaki was trying to prevent with his extensive experiments.
When Malaki got wind of the town forming against him and his business, he became enraged. With all the hormones in him, his anger went from bad to worse in no time. He went over to the Lake House Hotel and killed five random men, dragged their bodies to the basement and smashed their heads. He was preparing for an extravagant feast to show the town they were wrong about him. Everything went well until people started to notice odd things in their food – fingernails, fingers and even eyelashes. The townspeople were disgusted and furious. They decided to head to the basement to get to the bottom of this horrid meal. It’s there that they found the remains of the five victims. They all turned on Malaki and left him to hang on his own slaughter hooks. Once they were sure he was dead, they condemned the basement and designed a metal plate to cover his mouth to ensure the town of Saylorsburg that he would never kill or eat again.
No one has ventured into the Lake House Hotel basement since that horrific day. But beware – the kitchen is above that part of the basement and the cooks have said you can still hear pigs screaming, chains rattling and even moaning from the victims. So when you see Malaki in the house, you might want to turn and run the other way, because he’s probably quite hungry.
