\"Arthur is thirsty. Arthur wants blood. Arthur wants to kill.\" were the words David heard from his spot under the countless cardboard boxes. Let's go back and explain to you shall we?

David was an average 19 year old guy. He had a steady job at Sears, a cute girlfriend, and a small-ish apartment in Tennessee. There were some bad things in his life too, like he owed a man 2,000 dollars. David never even saw the man's face... And the man wouldn't back down, he would kill David before letting the money go. David used that as a scared expression when he told his girlfriend, but what he didn't know was the man really would kill.

David sat in his beaten-up Toyota car that his parent's had helped him buy. He drove to sears, where he worked as a stocker. He pulled up in the parking lot at about the same time as his co-worker Thomas. \"Hey Tom!\" David said merrily, getting out of his car. Thomas waved and shyly replied with a simple \"hi.\" and they both went inside. The day passed slowly for David, hour apon hour. But at last it was close to the time for him to go back home. Before he could leave, his boss Arthur tapped his shoulder. \"would you mind locking up tonight? I would ask Jack but he called in sick today.\" he said, not really asking. David nodded. \"yeah sure.\" he said a bit disappointed. Arthur smiled and walked out of the store.

David got out his phone to call his girlfriend, they were planning on watching some movies at his place but he obviously was gonna be a little late. He dialed in the numbers quickly and held the phone up to his ear waiting for her to pick up. Only a few seconds later, David heard something. He still waited on his girlfriend to answer the phone but looked around. He saw nothing and shrugged. \"I must be going nuts.\" he thought to himself chuckling. He heard his girlfriend's voice, telling him to leave a message. \"Hey, sorry but my boss wants me to lock up tonight. So movie night will be a little bit late tonight, okay?\" he said and put the phone back into his pocket. He heard that noise again. Like claws, scratching on a blackboard. David cringed and covered his ears. He knew it was just a prank one of his co-workers was probably laughing about. So David rolled his eyes and went about his business.

As he went towards the back entrance of the store, David heard that noise once again. \"okay, could you just stop now?!\" he asked aggravated. \"Just come out and end it already!\" He heard crazy laughter echo through the store. His brows furrowed and he took a step back. \"End it you say?\" an evilly mad and high-pitched voice said. \"But the fun has only just started!\"

David was getting legitimately scared now. \"What 'fun' could he possibly mean?\" David asked himself in his head. The echoing voice started to speak again. \"what fun. What fun? Mwahahahaha! Why, the game of tag!\" it laughed. David took off running for the back door, which was closest. But before he could open it and get outside, a man appeared in front of it. He wore a black cloak covering every part of his head and body. It looked like the man David borrowed money from.

The cloaked man took his hood off revealing him to be...\"A-Arthur?\" David stuttered out. Arthur laughed, the ear piercingly high laugh. \"tut tut, you better run because I'm it!\" he yelled and ran toward David. David sped off in the opposite direction, at this point terrified for his dear life.

\"oh well you'll have to run even faster than that!\" Arthur said. David slid under a giant shelf full of cardboard boxes. His chest heaved up and down as he looked around out of the corner of his eye. He didn't see Arthur yet...

Arthur was still running around in search of David. \"well now, where has my tag friend gone to?\" he asked crazily. David was still under the boxes, praying he would be safe from Arthur. But heard footsteps getting louder and louder near him.

\"Arthur is thirsty, Arthur wants blood, Arthur wants to kill!\" David could hear Arthur's evil voice from just beside his hiding place. He looked left and saw the bottom of Arthur's cloak. David tried to stop his breathing. \"please. Don't let him find me, please don't let him find me,\" David prayed silently.

Suddenly the black cloak was accompanied by a blood red pair of eyes. Arthur had found David...David let out a scream as two knives cut deep into his stomach. Arthur laughed for a long time, and pulled David out from under the shelves of boxes. Arthur grinned, showing off many sharp, yellow teeth, all stained with...blood.

Arthur licked his lips and sank his pointed teeth into David's stomach. David groaned at the pain. Arthur came up laughing like the psycho he is. After smiling at David, he went back for another large bite and sucked up any blood that came pouring out of David's stomach. David's vision was failing him.

As soon as Arthur got his fill of blood, he moved on to slitting David's throat wide open with his knives, killing David. All Arthur could think was \"ah, what a fun game of tag\" and left David's body laying there, and went on for his next murder.
