Evil Priest

A little boy was going to go to sleep, when he saw a man standing at his bedroom door. He said “GO… TO… SLEEP!” and then the man crawled under his bed. The boy did not know which side of the bed this man was on. Boy boy fell asleep… When he woke up he saw the man hovering right over him. That was the last thing he saw.

The message

…Later that day I received a message on my phone that said “You were the only one there, you know who killed me!” It was from my wife, she kept my phone number and charged my phone, after I passed away 6 months ago just to hear my voice on the Voice Mail.
