BrianArthur - two years ago

Elise closes the door and goes through her mail. She sees nothing interesting and picks up the paper. She doesn't see anything she really wants to read so she goes to the front page to read the story Calvin told her about.

BrianArthur - two years ago

The story is of some recent disappearances and it gives details on the victims and how they were all missing from their homes without a trace. The police suspect kidnapping but with no signs of struggle that seems unlikely. One of the missing women was found and says they were abducted by aliens because she sees so many bright lights and she had her mind opened. She killed herself in the hospital the night after being found after screaming "I can see the future of the world, I can see all of your deaths! I can see my death! You can see my death!" She threw herself out of the window before the police could talk to her.

BrianArthur - two years ago 4 versions.

Elise puts down the paper after reading the story and decides she is not a fan of chilling stories so she grabs some coffee and goes back to her book.
