This story is about a boy that sees a murder. He has nightmares and is scared of the killer coming back for him. He wasn’t very popular but became right after the murder. The person killed was her crush. She never noticed him before until one day she broke up with her boyfriend and walked home with the boy. The boy invites another girl to come home with him to use her as bait to attract the killer. He supposedly drives him away. But the next day he is called by the cops to come out of his room for questioning.
Girl at the Window
This story is about a boy that moves to town where apparently nothing happens. The first night he sleeps in his room he hears a scratch. A girl knocks in his window, she was drunk and said that that was her home. The next night the girl does the same thing but this time invites him to go out and prank people. He then climbs up a tree with her and friends but she falls. Then he awakes in his room and reads the newspaper about him screaming and reliving something that happened a long time ago.
