“Denn die Todten Reiten Schnell. (For the dead travel fast.)”

Bram Stoker, Dracula

Lucy knocked on the massive door for a second time and was turning around to leave when it opened. Looking down she stammered “Sorry to disturb you but I’ve brought your mail. There was a lot of it so I couldn’t fit it in the box …“

She nervously waited for the man to take the packages from her then was confused as she realized the one marked “cremated remains “ was missing.

“I must have left one in the truck, if you’ll hold on ..”

“No need . They’ve come back on their own.” Lucy felt the same chill that comes right before dawn course through her veins as she saw the missing package in the man’s hands .

Lucy turned and ran .
