One Stormy Night

 

A man by the name of Jackson Brown, aged 29, lives in Boston with his wife Ellen and 8 month old baby boy Samuel. Jackson works at a construction yard as a construction supervisor and always comes home late, but the pay is good. Ellen works at Tech Star as an office worker. They hire a caretaker every day to look after Samuel. A very basic family that lives happily with what they have. One very stormy night, at around 11 PM, Jackson came home soaking wet only to find an empty house, except for his baby boy Samuel. He thought:"Why would she leave him all alone, and where is she? Ellen would never be at work this late." He tried calling her to see where she was, but there was no signal, the storm cut everything off. To calm himself he went to the kitchen to grab a bite to eat, when all of a sudden, he heard baby Samuel crying. Naturally he rushed up to calm the wheeping boy. After 15 minutes of trying to get the boy asleep, he did it and went downstairs to continue his meal. He then heard a knock on the backdoor. Frightened, he looked through the window, and saw nothing...except for a note in front of the door. He opened the door and took the note that said:"Look up". As he was reading a single drop of blood fell on it. With the outside finally calmed after the storm, he was terrified to look up. He began to slowly raise his head, and as he looked up, he started crying. His beautiful wife Ellen was stabbed and then nailed to the house. Standing in tears he saw a note on her foot that says:"Wheres Samuel?". Without thinking, he rushed upstairs to the baby room to find an empty crib with a note that said:"Look outside". Outside, in the middle of the road, stood a shadowy figure with baby Samuel in his arm, with a gun pointed in the boys face. Horrified, Jackson ran as fast as he could to save the one thing he had left, but the attempt was vain. He heard a single gun shot and dropped to his knees, drowning in tears and screaming:"You bastard, you f*cking bastard! Come out so I can kill you, you heartless demon!" A deep and faded voice replied:"Fool, how do you kill something thats already dead?" A note then fell from above. With his hands shanking and eyes in tears, Jackson picked it up. The text was written in blood and it said:"Youre next!" Not a second later he felt a strong impale in his back. He dropped on his stomach and with his final breath he whispered:"Ellen, Im sorry..." While the killer was walking around his lifeless body he said:"Oh Jackson, death is just an illusion, a transition from this world to the next. Everyone is meant to die at some piont, your time was now. I took your family as well, so you can be together in the world beyond. Forgive me for the suffering."

It was Death himself
