Every one of us has a fear, something that scares us day in and day out, whether it is realistic or fictional. Some of these fears never truly come to life for us while we live in fear, hoping for them not to happen and some fears truly come to life before us and destroy us. This was the case for Rick, who had an extreme phobia of ghosts. He was tormented throughout school, never given a break about this fear. Rick would always be dread going to out because of this, even going trick-or-treating on Halloween. On Halloween, someone from school would always decide to scare Rick. On this particular Halloween, kids dressed up as ghosts and chased him down the street. Rick running in fear was hit by a car pulling out of the drive way and died that Halloween night. Rick said before he died that he would be the ghost that would scare bullies and tormenters with their own fears. Through time, this story has been shaken off and has been taken as a joke. Yet, this story should not be taken lightly. Even though it is hard to believe, supernatural occurrences have happened where victims were scared to death. For instance, one child was found dead in his room. The child was said to have had a heart attack when he died but when they found him, his face was painted like a clowns, the child’s biggest fear. Another child was found dead in her room, also being another heart attack at point of death. The girl had a phobia of snakes and it just so happens that there was a strange tattoo of a snake that coiled around her arm. Through investigation, both children were like the bullies that Rick had dealt with. So think twice before you harass someone for their fears, because your own fears can come back and scare you to death.
