“Enough is enough.” Sue walked away in the middle of the camp fire, and into the woods. She could not understand why ghost-story telling was a must in camp fires. She dreaded listening to those spooky tales that sent chills down her spine.
She wandered further into the woods.
There’s a cave in the middle of the forest?! Turning her torch to the brightest, she made her way in. Suddenly, she came to a halt. There are stairs! Should I go up or down?
She took a coin and tossed it in the air. Head! So I shall go down.
Just as she was about to take her first step down, she heard groans coming from the other side of the stairs.
“Hello? Is there anyone there?”
There was no answer. She made her way up the stairs.
Then she saw a man in a police uniform, lying on the stairs groaning and bleeding.
She searched her pockets, only to realised that she had left her phone in the tent.
“I’ll go get help! I’ll be right back!”
She ran down the stairs, but stopped midway. That uniform looks like it was from the 60’s!
She turned around.
He was gone.
