Jason held the rickety door closed as he watched through a crack between the boards. His friend darted around the yard, calling to him, trying to get him to reveal his hiding place.
He stifled a laugh as he knew no one would look for him in the outhouse. Their parents had warned them not to go inside, but they didn’t understand how important it was to win at Hide and Seek.
A cracking sound caught Jason’s attention, but before he could move, the floor beneath him gave way. As he splashed into the morass below, it pulled him under.
