My family just moved in an enormous house in Fox Street. The neighbors said that this neighborhood is the best. No crime, murder, no nuisance or whatsoever until...

It was our second week in the house and everyone was right. It is a quiet street but what really bugged me was the big old tree in the central park. People with their stupid superstitions said that the park was haunted especially the tree. I didn't believe them. The next day, I took a stroll to the park with my dog, Chevy. I saw a man raking the leaves. I greeted him and he just lowered his head and nodded. It was strange how he nodded as if he had a broken neck. I didn't really mind him. I was about to ask him a question when suddenly a strong gust of wind blew. All the leaves the man raked were scattered all over the park. Chevy barked and barked. They say that animals has better senses that humans so I trusted my dog. It was time to go.

The next day at the same time, I went to the park again but this time without the dog. The man was gone. Where did he go? I went to the town hall and inquired about the park. They said, that long ago, the whole town was a vast field and on the center stood a house with a big tree. There was a man who lived there for so long that he died, beheaded. Over the years, people thought that the house was haunted that's why they demolished it. After I knew everything we moved to another street, 10 blocks away from the park and its big old tree.

Few days after, I took a walk to the grocery store. When I was about to pay the cashier, I noticed that the man behind the counter lowered his head and nodded at me. His head fell and I ran outside as fast as I could.
