As they approached the alley, their hearts pounded as strange hollow sounds of their footsteps reverberated through the alley.

"Wh...aa.t's that over there?" Mary said in a cracked voice, pointing at a figure lying in a pool of blood.

The children screamed and scurried away from the alley.

Later, after the police came to investigate, the children were told that it was only a mannequin they saw, placed face-down in the alley with a pail of red paint overturned over it.

"Yikes! I am bound to have nightmares!" said Mary.
