On a dark and gloomy night, a man was walking home from his friend's house. As he's walking, he thinks he hears someone behind him, so he turns around; there isn't anyone or anything there. He continued walking at a faster pace. He starts hearing it again: the THUMP THUMP THUMPing noise following him. This time when he turned around, he saw a coffin standing upright on the sidewalk. \"Blasted halloween decorations. I could've sworn I heard something coming down the street. The man, now at ease, stared walking at a slower pace. THUMP THUMP THUMP.. He turned around to see the coffin bumping down the road. The man was freaked out. \"How is that possible? I thought I killed you!\" He yelled as he backed away quickly. But the coffin just kept coming. THUMP THUMP THUMP The man was running, now, as fast as he could. It was only another block away to his house; he'd be safe there. He reached the front step with the coffin coming steadily after him. He fumbled with his keys, trying to find the one for his house. THUMP THUMP THUMP Now the man was opening the door. He dashed into his house and locked the door behind him as he stared outside for the coffin. It disappeared somehow! Where could it be? As to answer his question, the door flew open as the coffin entered his house. THUMP THUMP THUMP The terrified man ran for some place where he could hide. He ran into the bathroom and shut the door. He locked the door with the door lock and a padlock, \"Surely it can't get in now.\" He sat down quivering in fear as he heard the coffin coming down the hallway. THUMP THUMP THUMP, then... CRASH! The coffin burst into the bathroom, and a piece of it had come off. Inside, there was a skeleton with glowing red eyes and moldy, clattering bones. The man screamed for help, but no help would come. He was going to die. As a final effort, he looked around for something to throw and found a bottle of cough syrup. He opened the lid and splattered what was left of the syrup onto the coffin, and the coffin stopped.
