Greetings, listeners! Gather to your radio near, as tales of horror you soon shall hear! Yes, it is once again time for Tales of the Otherworld! Some of you may have thought that, since our sponsor, Gary’s Footwear, left us last week, that the show would be caput, as so many characters in our stories seem to end up. Not so, dear listener! We have found a new sponsor, and we relish the thought of continuing for ages more, ever spewing dark auras from your living room radio. Now come, sit! We have an incredible tale for you tonight…
There is a man in my basement.
He is always down there, waiting for me to make a mistake. He knows what I am doing. He knows where I go. I do not know how he knows, but he does. He always does.
For weeks, I have been tormented by a singular dream.
