CURIOSITY KILLED THE READER
Lizzie finds a tattered old book and is intrigued by its creepy cover. Suddenly the words DON’T LOOK INSIDE scratch furiously into the leather, as if carved by an invisible hand. Lizzie jolts, terrified. She intends to heed the warning. No way in hell is she opening the book now.
But her curiosity gets the better of her. She feels compelled to look inside. Her hands move with a will of their own, opening the book. Her heart hammers in her chest as she reads the first line. No. She reels in horror. What have I done? She should have obeyed the warning. She never should have looked inside. But now it’s too late, because the book is about to exact a hideous punishment. . .
