Hannah and Rob Jamieson ran breathless into the dark damp Mary’s Close of Old Edinburgh Town. Both bent over double with their hands on their knees. The screams from the crowd on the Royal Mile still reverberating in their ears

“Was that real?” Hannah asked Rob, sweat pouring down her face.
“It looked bloody real!” exclaimed her husband.

Hannah fished into her coat pocket and pulled out the card given to her by the tall, dark, street entertainer. It simply read; ‘Sign up for a month free trial for Nightmare Unlimited.’

“I thought it was just a gimmick, you know, for a Gothic night club opening up in Edinburgh.” Hannah said showing the card to Rob.

Rob quickly read the card again, then flipped it over to see if anything else was printed on the back.
“What did the guy actually say to you?”

Hannah stood up straight now she had recovered. “He said that for one month I could have free access to Nightmares Unlimited, and as my husband, you could be included in the deal. I thought, what the heck, why not. Then as soon as I signed the form, BAM! All that crazy stuff starting happening including, ‘that’” Hannah said pointed towards the street.

Just then there was another scream, only this time it was near. For the second time that night, a severed head, this time of a man, rolled up to Hannah and Rob. It was quickly followed by a hysterical woman running into Mary's Close.

“GO!” she screeched. Then grabbing the young couple by the arms, she shouted. “QUICKLY RUN, HE’S COMING BACK FOR YOU!”
