I hate coming to this lab. It makes my flesh creep. However, I had left my notes in the lab yesterday when I left in a hurry. So now I’m here to retrieve it.
There is a skeleton standing at the corner of the lab. It looks like it’s always smiling at me. I often hear weird sound coming from it. There must be a spirit living in it! Now I’m all alone with it.
I quickly retrieve my notes, and head for the exit. Just as I place my hand on the door handle, someone tap my shoulder. Oh no! The skeleton is alive! I knew it! I scream, turn around, and start to kick and punch whatever is in front of me.
“STOP! You are hurting me!”
That sounds familiar! I open my eyes and am stunned.
“Jacob?! I didn’t see you come in.”
“I came before you. I dropped my pen and was searching under the benches when I saw you leaving -”
“so you tap my shoulder?”
