Betty stopped reading, it was time to go to sleep. She couldn’t sleep, she kept thinking of what she had read. In the morning, she went to the barn, she opened the door. Betty saw a big pile of sand. She ran for a shovel, removed sand and found a headless man. Betty was very scared and she called her best friend, George, to talk about what had happened.
