“He crawled up on top of where she lay. He sat down on her chest and stared into her eyes. And she could now see he wasn’t a little boy at all. He was something… else. Something dark and dead – a ghost of some kind. A monster. She actually told mom she thought he was a monster. And this little monster placed his hand on her chest this time, just below her neck and she felt the cold again. Colder than before. And she felt the fear. It was heavier than before.”
Dan brings a whole new kind of terror to his first story this week. What seems like your typical story of an older person starting to forget things and misplace things leads to a horrifying reality of no one believing an elderly woman about the “bad little boy” she keeps seeing. He comes to her, when she is in bed and alone, in the middle of the night. He whispers to her. He wants to take her. No one believes her and her nightmare takes a deadly turn. For story number two, Dan takes us to Cumae Archaeological Park, into dark tunnels. There are many mysteries and legends surrounding Cumae. When two young, broke college kids embark on a journey into the hidden parts of Cumae, they believe they are in the trusting hands of their tour guide. However, their tour guide has something very different in mind; he is looking for a different kind of gratuity for his hard work.
Lynze opens her half of the show with a not so scary tale but a tale that makes you ask lots of questions, none the less. Reincarnation. Do you believe that we can come back to this world, even after we leave it? A sweet little boy seems to know far too much about things he couldn’t know. His family is confused by the knowledge he possesses but they aren’t scared. They are hopeful that this youngster is just a former family member. Then, in story two, Lynze takes us on a wild, wild haunted house ride. You will, for sure, need to suspend your rational self to accept this as reality. The fan who wrote in acknowledges that the tale sounds tall but he insists that it is 100%. And like they always say, only one story has to be true to open the possibility of all of them being true.

Opening Sumerian protection spell (adapted):
“Whether thou art a ghost that hath come from the earth, or a phantom of night that hath no home… or one that lieth dead in the desert… or a ghost unburied… or a demon or a ghoul… Whatever thou be until thou art removed… thou shalt find here no water to drink… Thou shalt not stretch forth thy hand to our own… Into our house enter thou not. Through our fence, breakthrough thou not… we are protected though we may be frightened. Our life you may not steal, though we may feel SCARED TO DEATH.”
