16 ROOM FOR ONE MORE

16 ROOM FOR ONE MORE
A man named Joseph Blackwell came to Philadelphia on a
business trip. He stayed with friends in the big house they
owned outside the city. That night they had a good time
visiting. But when Blackwell went to bed, he tossed and
turned and couldn't sleep. Sometime during the night he
heard a car turn into the driveway. He went to the window
to see who was arriving at such a late hour. In the
moonlight, he saw a long, black hearse filled with people.
The driver of the hearse looked up at him. When Blackwell
saw his queer, hideous face, he shuddered. The driver
called to him, "There is room for one more," then he waited
for a minute or two, and drove off. In the morning
Blackwell told his friends what had happened. "You were
dreaming," they said. "I must have been," he said, "but it
didn't seem like a dream." After breakfast he went into
Philadelphia. He spent the day high above the city in one
of the new office buildings there. Late in the afternoon he
was waiting for an elevator to take him back down to the
street. But when it arrived, it was very crowded. One of
the passengers looked out and called to him. "There is room
for one more," he said. It was the driver of the
hearse. "No thanks," said Blackwell. "I'll get the next
one." The doors closed, and the elevator started down.
There was shrieking and screaming, then the sound of a
crash. The elevator had fallen to the bottom of the shaft.
Everyone aboard was killed.
