I drove through town heading to my next investigation, a man Murdered. I drove up the house and there were already officers at the house, they already took pictures but they waited for me. I got out of my car and the rain started to drench my coat, I walked past everyone and entered the house and saw a body of a man lying face down on the ground with a knife covered in blood next to him. I bent down and started looking for fingerprints of the knife but no luck, I then walked into all of the rooms they all had the same word written in blood “Fools” I exited the house and the all the officers began leaving for the night, I began looking around the house and found a cellar door. It opened with a squeaky noise and all I can see is darkness, I took out my flashlight and clicked it on to see old books and empty wine glasses on the ground and there is another thing that I see just beyond the hall it looks like some kind a hand. I take out my Revolver and slowly walk towards the hand. It looks like the same person from upstairs but with a different hair color, I think about it for a minute but hear the cellar doors slam shut, I point my flashlight and gun to the slightly lit room but see no one. I stand up and as slowly as possible walk to the doors, I sigh in relief and exit the cellar and made my way back to the house, but something felt different I shrugged it off and entered back inside the house. I was frightened to what I found, the body was not there and the knife was gone. I stepped back and heard breathing behind me. I sprinted to across the room and turned around, gun trained on the same looking man and he had the knife with an evil grin I yelled at him to get on the ground but it looked like he did not hear so I shot next to him as a warning but he didn’t even flinch, the man started slowly walking to me and I did another warning shot but like the last time he didn’t even flinch. I ran to the closest room and tried to open the window but it was taped shut, I turned behind me and saw the man with the knife standing in the doorway. I shot him in the leg and as he fell to the ground I shot him again in the chest, I ran out the door and felt an excruciating pain in my leg and I knew he threw the knife. I fell to the ground and made a bold decision to pull the knife out, it was painful but I managed and crawled to the car, I opened the door and grabbed the radio but dropped it as I felt something “Hello, Michael you there. Respond.” ‘Click’ “Ah Michael you alright?” “Fools.”
