I was home alone and heard a weird banging noise – at first I thought it was the washing machine, but it didn’t sound right, and the washing machine wasn’t on. I turned on the video camera and went down to investigate – though now I wish I hadn’t.
The sound was coming from inside that cursed steamer trunk – I don’t know how or even what it was, but it was coming from within the trunk itself. I hesitated, I really did – I was just going to run back upstairs, I didn’t want anything to do with it – but I needed to know, god help me I needed to know. Hands shaking, I opened the trunk…. Nothing. The sound stopped and there was nothing in the trunk that could have made it – it was just sitting there, as I left it, with the sword and other artifacts.
