Spring Texas[edit]

Old Town Spring in Texas is located just north of Houston. There is a curse upon the land. One that has troubled the inhabitants since the 1700s. A curse cast by the Akokisa tribe, also known for their cannibalism. There is a fearful respect for the land and the trees here. Fear being the key word. I’d even go so far as to call many of the shop owners “tree huggers,” especially the ones who have built their stores around the trees to avoid the curse. The numerous fires in the town have been linked to the land owners disturbing the trees.
