C’mon, you people HAVE to remember this story from Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark now, right?
Actually, I had repressed all memories of those books from my memory. Until now. Thanks.
You’re sure on a dark imagery kick lately, A.R. Are you getting enough fiber? X)
I vaguely recall the act of reading SSTTD, but there are few individual tales I remember with a great deal of clarity. But then, dead ghost soldiers are pretty common in scary stories. :D I remember the one with “Give me my gold!” though. That one sticks.
I see how it is with ghosts. They only have arms when they want to, and they love to put their nose-worms all up in your business. Rude!
Okay, in retrospect, I should have known he was a revenant being held to this world and unable to pass on because of the power of her obsessive grieving. But I never read SSTTD. I think the first time I ever saw a story was in a Time Life Enchanted World Series book. :P
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA A subtle commentary about your marriage Agouti?
@Mr Casual: Hmm, I don’t remember “Give me your gold.” What happened in that one?
@Coyotenose: Oh yeaaaah, I remember that in the Time Life Enchanted World too! That creepy oil painting illustration that went with this story gave me the heebie-jeebies.
@Skoon: NO, SHUT UP! THIS IS A WORK OF FICTION AND ANY RESEMBLANCE TO ANY PERSONS LIVING OR DEAD IS ENTIRELY COINCIDENTAL!!!
@Skoon: What, his marriage has nose-worms?
@Agouti-Rex: Something about stealing the gold from a grave, and having the thief constantly hear someone saying, “Give me my gold!” in the night. He gets so scared he goes to dig the grave up and return the gold, but changes his mind and tries to turn around, only to have the dead guy grab him. It ends with the corpse saying, “I told you to give me my gold.” Fade out!
Spooky stuff when I read it as a kid. :D
@Mr. Casual: Nah, it’s an in-joke. Because I’m cool and Agouti is my bestest friend evar.
@Mr. Casual: Sounds similar to the one about the old lady and the bone.
@Skoon: Skoon and Agouti = OTP
@Skoon: But how are you with his wife? X)
Reading back over that question, it strikes me how I phrased that sounds rather rude, heh. It’s meant in terms of casting undo aspirations on the ol’ marriage, just to be clear.
I’m not that much of a jerk, really. :)
@Mr. Casual: Oh Moody loves me. We like pee. 8D
The real tragedy here is what happened to that luxurious head of hair.
War is hell.
Well, of course. Nothing brings people together like a shared enjoyment of urinary tract functions!
Everybody’s got their quirks!
