Chris and Julie were walking down the boyside road that night. It was really dark and the first vehicle to pass was a taxi. Chris waved for it to stop. The taxi stopped a few meters ahead of them. Chris aproached it to talk to the driver. As he leaned down to look inside, he was horrified to find the taxi empty. “Is it okay with the driver, Chris? Julie called out. ” Chris looked at his girlfriend. He turned back to the taxi and got even more terrified. The taxi was now full of people, their eyes staring fiercely at him. Christ couldn’t bear it anymore and ran back to his girlfriend.
Another vehicle stopped near them. When they saw that it was Gary , Chris immediately went inside and pulled his girlfriend in with him. I told you guys to wait for me at the beach party. It’s not good to be walking along this road, “Gary scolded the couple. Suspecting that Gary knew about the weird taxi, Chris asked his friend, “Gary, what do you know about the taxi back there?” BEEP! Gary honked the horn before answering. “Two years ago, the Malaya Taxi Company’s car number 45 had a terrible accident on this very road,” said Gary. BEEP! “The driver died along with his five passengers.”
BEEP! “After the accident, rumors ran rampant that taxi # 45 was seen travelling this road.”
BEEP! ” The Malaya Taxi Company denied that they produced another taxi unit with the same number,” Gary continued. BEEP! “How do you know all this? Chris asked Gary. I’m a journalism student, remember? I covered this story once,” Gary replied. Garry dropped the couple at Chris’ house and said, There’s more. Some say that taxi #45 crosses the path of vehicles that travel the bayside road.”
” Is that also true?” Julie asked. “They said that if taxi #45 passes by, you honk once, ,”Gary answered Chris said, “Hey! Didn’t you honk many times while we were on the bayside road?”
“Yes! The taxi passed us five times tonight, and each time the taxi passed, one of them disappeared, “Gary said.
“One of them?” the couple asked. “While we were on the bayside road, the five dead passengers appeared, “Gary said in a whisper. “What? You mean you saw the five passengers on the road? cried Julie. “No, in my car!” Gary said.
