You decide that a little peek wouldn’t hurt anyone. You tread carefully into the room, pointing your light everywhere; you did not want anything jumping out at you! You approach the tall wooden cabinet and hastily brush away the cobwebs hanging onto the brass handles, then you pull open the doors of the cabinet. For a moment you don’t know what happened, then you shriek as a skeleton dressed in rags falls from the cupboard and lands on top of you. Behind you, the door slams shut and you stop screaming long enough to hear creaking behind you.
You try to escape from the skeleton, breaking bones and tearing cloth as you kick it away furiously. You look around and see a pearly white man standing on the now-upright rocking chair, a noose around his neck. He looks at you with a gaunt expression and you feel your breath die in your throat.
And suddenly it’s you standing on the chair with the noose around your neck, and the ghost and the skeleton are standing across from you, grinning eerily. You scream for help and try to pull the noose over your head, but the skeleton crosses over towards you in a flash. For a moment you stare into the hollow of his eyes and know your fate is sealed.
The skeleton kicks the chair.
“Cut! Excellent work, everyone – that’s a wrap for today.”
