Okay story

this story is short which makes it a easy listen. it was okay. the plot was a little silly to me. it felt rushed and a little incomplete. I saw other reviews saying it was creepy or scary. I didn't think so at all. I found it predictable.

I was looking for a quicker read to kill a couple of hours and this did it! Very entertaining, and the time flew by.
