'Why are you slowing down?' Asked Mike, his eyes still on the tablet. Again, there was no response. Butthe moment he raised his head up and looked at the glass in front, he noticed that the driver's eyes hadturned a scarlet red and from out his mouth, live worms were emerging.

Upon reaching Scotland, by train, it was late afternoon as Mike emerged from out the station and boarded the
first available cab.
'I'd like you to take me to the nearest Bed and Breakfast please.'
Along the way, Mike opened the window and inhaled.
'Aah, it feels great to be back in Dundee once again. The air is so fresh and invigorating.'
The cabdriver did not say anything, just continued on the route. Mike could only see his eyes through the
front seat mirror. He pulled out his tablet from his hand luggage and began to browse.
'I wonder if that Old Derelict High School is there.' He said to himself quietly. His fingers had just typed the
first few letters then he changed his mind and smiled.
'There is no need anyway. I'll be there in a matter of hours anyway.'
Suddenly, the cab began to slow down. At this point they were passing along a massive graveyard.
'Why are you slowing down?' Asked Mike, his eyes still on the tablet. Again, there was no response. Butthe moment he raised his head up and looked at the glass in front, he noticed that the driver's eyes hadturned a scarlet red and from out his mouth, live worms were emerging.
'Ahhhh!!!'

Mike frantically reached for the main door button, but it was wedged in. The cab driver, by now, had turned into a zombie and turned around, staring straight at him. He reached forwards and grabbed Mike around his neck, then took a long deep bite.
'Aaaaaahhh!'
Mike found himself lying curled up in the back of the car. His eyes opened and he panicked. He saw the driver staring at him, looking concerned.
'Are you feeling alright, Sir? Just to let you know, we've arrived at the nearest Bed and Breakfast.?'
Mike sat up and placed his hands over his face and pressed against them, ensuring he was wide awake and in his senses.
'I...I'm so sorry. I think I must have drifted off into sleep.'
'You must have been having a nightmare. Your scream alerted me.'
Mike got out the car and paid the taxicab driver, then made his way to the Bed and Breakfast.
'Alchemists and Ghouls Anonymous.' He shrugged. Doesn't sound very inviting, but I need a place to spend a couple of nights at least, so, I have no choice.'
As he made his way in, he walked to reception where a young lady dressed in casual jeans and jumper greeted him.
'Good evening, Sir. How may I help you?'
'I'd like to book a room please, for three nights.'
As the girl entered Mike's details in her register, he asked,
'Excuse me, but how did you choose such a name for your place?'
'What, you mean, The Floral Inn?' Mikes eyes widened and he rushed out to see it again.
'Oh no, what's happening...'
