HAUNTED ROAD

THERE IS A BACK ROAD IN PONTIAC, MICHIGAN AND ON A WINDY, RAINY
NIGHT, A GIRL AND HER BOYFRIEND WERE DRIVING DOWN IT AND HIS CAR
BROKE DOWN. THERE WERE RUMORS OF MONSTERS IN THE AREA, SO THE
BOYFRIEND TOLD THE GIRL TO LAY ON THE FLOOR IN THE FRONT SEAT,
WHILE HE WENT AND GOT HELP. WHILE LAYING ON THE FLOOR, SHE HEARD
SCRATCHING, FOOTSTEPS, AND A THUMPING NOISE. AFTER A FEW MINUTES
LAYING ON THE FLOOR OF THE CONVERTIBLE, SHE FELT SOMETHING
DRIPPING ON HER ARM, BUT SHE WAS TOO SCARED TO MOVE IN ORDER TO SEE
WHAT IT WAS. AFTER A LONG, LONG TIME, SHE HEARD THE CARDOOR OPEN,
SOMEONE GRABBED HER, SHE SCREAMED, TURNED AROUND, AND A POLICEMAN
WAS THERE TRYING TO CALM HER DOWN. HE HELPED HER OUT OF THE CAR
AND TOLD HER NOT TO LOOK BACK AT THE CAR, BUT GO DIRECTLY TO THE
POLICE CAR. HOWEVER, SHE DID TURN AROUND AND SHE SAW THE BODY
OF HER BOYFRIEND, ALL CUT UP, LAYING ON TOP OF THE CAR ROOF, AND
HIS BLOOD WAS DRIPPING THROUGH A SLIT IN THE ROOF. SHE LOOKED
DOWN AT HER WRIST AND THERE WERE BLOOD DROPS ON HER ARM. NOW IF
YOU DRIVE DOWN THIS ROAD ON A RAINY, WINDY NIGHT, WHAT YOU THINK
IS RAIN IS REALLY BLOOD AND THE ROAD IS CALLED "BLOOD ROAD."
