Ash was heading to his girlfriend, MOMO's home to see if she wanted to go have a little something to eat with him. They had been in a boyfriend and girlfriend ever since they met in the Village Hidden in the Leaves, and they were letting things progress at a rate that was perfectly agreeable for their age. They were still in the dating phase and planned on keeping it like that for a while.
Ash knocked on the front door, "MOMO you wanna go get some lunch? I'll buy." He waited a minute and knocked again; "MOMO are you home?" still no one came to reply. He looked through the window, the television was on but it was nothing on but static, nobody was home. That's unusual, Ash thought, normally MOMO tells me if she's gonna be leaving town. But she always turns off the television and all the lights. She's never done anything like this before. Something is wrong. He opened the door and walked into the abandoned home. He looked around and found one clue to why the television was playing static, "A blank videocassette box. That explains why the television is playing static."
He looked at the title of the film that was playing. It read, The Ring. Ash dropped the box, he had heard about the video's curse, and that all the people who watched the tape had been killed after seeing a ring on the screen and receiving a mysterious phone call. He decided that the thing that killed everyone who watched the tape had dragged MOMO into the film. He pressed the rewind button on the tape and waited. The tape showed a well and a girl with pink hair, yellow eyes, and a blue shirt with blue jeans standing in front of the well, "MOMO." Ash said with fear.
"Ash," she cried, "help me." She banged on the screen.
Then, a hand came up from the well behind her, "MOMO look out behind you." Ash shouted.
MOMO turned around only to find herself staring into the face of Samara, a girl with a sick obsession with the dead. Samara grabbed MOMO and began to take her to the edge of the well, but MOMO reached for Ash's hand and he made a grab for her hand. They grabbed each other's wrists and Ash was pulled into the movie. Ash felt something come over him; he felt a sudden madness begin to take over as he passed through the television screen. He felt his anger and rage begin to metamorphous into bloodlust and a powerful death knell towards Samara. He grabbed Samara's arm and growled like an animal. The black haired psychopath turned him and said in a cold threatening voice, "Let go of me you fool."
Ash lost it, "I'll let go of you when I'm dead. Now you let go of my girlfriend or I'll tear your arm off."
Samara, not knowing how infuriated the boy was, punched Ash in the face. This made the situation go from bad to worse, for her. Ash hit the ground and shot straight into the air with a long black sword tipped not with a sharp point, but the head of a demon. "You don't want the tip of this sword to go through you. It'll turn you to nothing but a soulless husk."
"How can I be a soulless husk if I don't have a solid body." Samara said with a stare that could bring down a grizzly bear.
"You'll see all right." Ash said. He took the sword in his left hand and reached down with his left hand to his shadow and to Samara's surprise it was an exact replica of her. Around the things legs were a set of arms holding her to the spot. Ash walked three paces away from the double and pointed it tip first at her, and ran at her, driving the point through the fake. As the point passed through the target there was a low roar. When the sword was drawn out of her, she dropped dead on the ground, soulless.
Samara clutched her chest in pain. "What happened?" She asked Ash with teary eyes.
"Well," Ash said, "that thing was actually your shadow. And when I couldn't find your shadow I used my shadow and connected it to the only parts of your body that made contact with the ground, namely your feet. And since your shadow is a part of you, the pain she feels is the pain you feel."
"How can I feel pain? It's been years since I was alive. I'll show you who's more potent in this world." Samara said as she pulled a knife out of the ground and sliced through Ash's neck. "What do you say to that?"
"Oh what pain in the neck." Ash said as he exploded in a short flash of fire.
Samara laugh in a thin rasping voice, "Ha ha ha, I got him."
"Quiet the contrary, I've got you." Samara heard Ash's taunting voice from below her but all she saw was a fiery red ring and she heard a low threatening roar.
Samara tried to move but her feet felt like side walk blocks. "I can't allow you to beat me, this is my world." She yelled.
Ash emerged from out of the ground like something from a sci-fi zombie movie. When Ash got to his feet he felt like he had almost been smothered, "Man that was weird. I could not breathe down there." He turned to Samara and asked, "Why are you so cruel? I could've suffocated."
"I was hoping you would." Samara said coldly.
Ash had never wanted to here anything that chilling. He was starting to activate the ancient techniques that he had sealed away after he had left the Leaf Village. His blood was boiling hot with outrage. He was mad that he could feel the searing pain on the right side of his face. The curse was beginning again. He went from staring into the cold heartless eyes of Samara Morgan, to staring into the bars of a gate in his mind. Through the gaps in the bar he saw a gigantic set of eyes, both of the irises were blood red, with yellow fangs tipped with blood. "Let me out." The thing on the opposite end of the bars said in a growl. Ash looked back speechless with tears running down his cheeks. "You call yourself a brave warrior. Hah, I should just devour you right now. You're weak, your hate isn't strong enough to kill anymore."
Ash couldn't take the insulting words anymore. "SHUT YOUR TRAP YOU INGREATFUL SON OF A GUN!" Ash began to growl menacingly. His eyes turned red, his hair grew long and wiry, his teeth grew long and sharp, and his finger and toenails grew into claws. "I'll show you who's weak." He said in pouncing position. He was transported back to the sight of Samara growling with animal like rage. "So you wished I would suffocate underground, eh? Well I wish you'd be impaled on a stake of holly." He then flicked Samara in the forehead and knocked her back three feet.
"How did you change like that? A minute ago you were going to cry, and now you're a killing machine." Samara put her hand to her forehead, "Ugh."
"Well there's plenty more where that came from you brat. But I warn you," He pointed at MOMO, "if you do so much as pluck one hair off of her head, I'll destroy you."
Samara did not hesitate; she disappeared from in front of Ash and appeared behind MOMO and plucked a thin pink strand of hair from her head. "What did you say you'd…"
Before Samara could finish, Ash became a blur and punched her in the face. "That's the straw that broke my back. I told you I'd destroy you. Now prepare to be beaten and ground into a bloody pulp."
