Earth to Hell and Back Again

Smeltzer House
(This is a chain-story created by Smeltzer House, Class of 2028, as our first step to investigate how Google works in indexing our page.)
My mother always told me to NEVER open the door to the closet outside of my bedroom. She said that it was full of creepy stuff like spiders and spider webs. 
But I really wanted to go in there because she also told me that there was a Tim Duncan autographed numbered jersey in mint condition - 10.0. So today I decided to go inside the closet. I shouldn’t have done that because I opened the closet and fell to my death!

Years later, another family move into the house but the child didn’t know what was inside the closet. He was a curious kid so he went into the closet when exploring the new house and the moment he stepped in, he fell to his death. A few years earlier, when I had died, I had fallen into the deepest and darkest pit in hell and got shoved under the lava by a pitchfork. When I was floating down through the lava, it ended and I fell again onto a trampoline and blasted back up onto a concrete roof.

Ten years later, the police found suspicious activities by my house. So this is where Pete, a 10-year-old boy who lived across the street, came in.  He inspected the scene to find burned footprints on the grass and a trail of blood next to them. He reported it to the police and asked them to investigate. Pete and the police walked in and found the closet - sadly, they fell in also.

There was a ninja hiding in the spot, who jumped on their heads and got out of the closet. I was reborn as Pete’s little brother but I had deja vu and remembered living in the house with the closet. I walked into the closet and didn’t remember anything and fell to my death again. 

The last thing I saw was that bloody pitchfork!
