THE HOOK

THIS OCCURS ON A DARK AND WINDRY NIGHT. A COUPLE HAD GONE
OUT PARKING NEAR AN INSANE ASYLUM. THEY WERE GETTING
READY TO LEAVE, AND TURNED ON THE RADIO JUST IN TIME TO
HEAR THAT A PERSON HAD ESCAPED FROM THE NEARBY ASYLUM.
HE COULD BE IDENTIFIED BY A HOOK, INSTEAD OF A HAND. THE COUPLE
LEFT AND WHEN THE BOY WENT TO THE OTHER SIDE
OF THE CAR TO OPEN THE DOOR, AND HANGING THERE WAS THE HOOK. THE
COUPLE NEVER PARKED AGAIN.
