60 FASTER AND FASTER

60 FASTER AND FASTER
Sam and his cousin Bob went walking in the woods. The only
sounds were leaves rustling and, now and again, a bird
chirping. "It's so quiet here," Bob whispered. But that
soon changed. After a few minutes the two boys started
whooping and hollering and chasing one another around. Sam
ducked behind a tree. When Bob came by, Sam jumped out at
him. Then Bob raced ahead and hid behind a bush. When he
looked down, there at his feet was an old drum. "Sam! See
what I found," he called. "It looks like a tom-tom. I bet
it's a hundred yeas old." "Look at the res stains on it,"
said Sam. "I bet it's somebody's blood. Let's get out of
here." But Bob could not resist trying the drum. He sat on
the ground and held it between his legs. He beat on it with
one hand, then the other, slowly at first, then faster and
faster, almost as if he could not stop. Suddenly there were
shouts in the woods and the sound of hoofbeats. A cloud of
dust rose from behind a line of trees. Then men on
horseback galloped toward them. "Bob let's go!" Sam
shouted. He began to run. "Hurry!" Bob dropped the drum and
ran after him. Sam heard the twang of a bow firing an
arrow. Then he heard Bob scream. When Sam turned, he saw
Bob pitch forward dead. But there was no arrow in his body,
and there was no wound. And when the police searched, there
were no men on horseback, and there were no hoofprints--and
there was no drum. The only sounds were leaves rustling
and, now and again, a bird chirping.
