    Challenge Phrase
    Two in the Grave
  2. The country of Velsaria was founded by a triumvirate of heroes - Velasi the sorceress, Sir Terag the Invincible, and Maeraat Unseen. It was ruled by the three until Velasi and Sir Terag were murdered...and now Maeraat must find out who killed them and bring them to justice...lest she find herself the next target.
  3. A group of historians and truth seekers set out on what they believe is a treasure hunt, guided by a long lost journal from the 1800s. The journal states several clues (one of which is "two in the grave") painting a trail for the adventurers to follow and it becomes evident that the journal is linked to a local legend about an upper class Spanish woman who was said to have been rather wealthy. It claims that she suddenly disappeared one day and was never found. It also speaks of her most treasured possession. Thinking that this possession would be something worth the trouble, the group follows the tricky clues in the journal until they're led to a hidden tomb. There are two stone graves inside the tomb, one much smaller than the other.

    It's only then that the group realizes that the wealthy Spanish woman's most treasured possession...was her child.
  4. It was the find of the century, a neanderthal and a homo sapien in the same grave site, the kind of find to make careers, the kind of find to kill for. For some reason someone doesn't want it made public and the team is mostly disappeared or bloodily murdered and symbols of the occult are appearing with startling frequency. These bodies are worth more than first meets the eye.
  5. They were the best of friends, they were the best of lovers, they were the world to him. One day, when Lucy finds her two best friends in the grave, she goes out of her way to find out who killed them. Was it a simple suicide or was something more wicked afoot and can she figure it out before she is killed herself?

  6. Marcella stood over the man as he begged for his life, her eyes cold as ice fixed on him as she slowly pressed the barrel of the rifle into his mouth and then pulled the trigger. It was a quicker death than he deserved after what he'd done to her, but she climbed out of the hole and covered him with dirt.

    Right next to it was another fresh grave. "Two in the grave...three to go."

    She was finally strong enough to take her revenge, and she planned to see every one of them dead.
