Clock Tower 2: The Struggle Within Fan Community
During the spring of 1999, an extremely unusual event occured in the small town of Salinas. Salinas is located in the suburbs of a major city. Also located in this peaceful area is Memorial Hospital. Due to it's pharmaceutical studies, the hospital is a major contributor to the economy of this small town.|
A seventeen-year-old high school girl named Alyssa Hale was on her way to Salinas to visit her father's friend Mr. Phillip Tate. Along the way, Alyssa looked at the red amulet in her hand. She believes this amulet has some sort of power over her. As she stared into the amulet, a vision of horror engulfed her mind; she saw herself holding a knife in her right hand while looking down at her friends lying in a pool of blood on the floor. She had no idea what happened. It was earlier discovered that another personality resided in her soul, an entity called Mr. Bates. Alyssa was forced to under-go intense therapy because of this cold-blooded, immoral male personality. Although the incident occured one month earlier, she is unable to recall anything about it. Alyssa refused to believe she is capable of something as horrific as the event in her vision.
Alyssa looked once more at the amulet. She realized that somehow her amulet had to be tied in with Mr. Bates. She remembered not having her amulet on when she awoke from Bates' invasion of her psyche. Alyssa soon realized that as long as she had her amulet, her soul would be safe from Mr. Bates and she could be herself.
When Alyssa arrived at the Tate's residence, no one was home. Something seemed strange. Alyssa knew that the Tates were expecting her. Perhaps they had forgotten. Alyssa noticed a series of strange low-toned squeking noises echoing throughout the small house. Then, she saw something! Lying in a pool of blood was what appeared to be a rotting corpse. Alyssa slowly approached the mangled remains only to realize to her relief that it was not human. But if it was not human, what could it be? And where were the family members?
And thus, the story begins...
