Description Edit | History

From the Background:

The rain lashes the windscreen like a wild insane animal. Why you have to go out at this time of night, you don't know? Your boss rang you twenty minutes ago to take some papers to Blackwood Manor for Mr Smith to sign, so a sale can go through quickly.

You drive through the rusty iron gates and drive up the gravel driveway. A dark foreboding wood closes in on you from both sides until you arrive at the house.

Blackwood Manor towers over you like a malicious giant creature staring at its prey. You get out of the car, run through the rain and reach the front door stepping in every puddle all the way.

You take out the papers from your briefcase and hand them to the old man. He ignores them and stokes the fire with a nearby poker. 'This night reminds of an age past. A time I can never forget. If I had known what was to befall me that night, then I wouldn't have ventured here.' he says as he stares distantly into the dancing flames.

'Although the day itself was quite eventful, it started when my car broke down just outside a small village quite near here.' He stares at you and gives you a sickly grin. As you look into his eyes you see something familiar about them. Have you already met? No, you would have remembered.

Strangely you start to feel drowsy. As he continues his story you start to visualize his very words, when suddenly...
