Story 4: "The Cage" Something hunts the people of Coal Ridge. Hank has spent decades fighting it, but with his time running out, he needs to find a way to stop it. Bruce was a lifelong screw-up until he met Hank, who knew that finding a purpose in life would make things worse. Faced with an undefeatable evil, Hank and Bruce decide that the only way to protect their friends and neighbors is to trap it, but in doing so they will trap themselves. One in death and the other with a lifelong responsibility he doesn't want because something that can be trapped can also be released.
Story 3: "They Must Play" Some people are so strange. It isn't enough that her neighbor has a group of small decorative pig statues in her front yard, but putting up a playset and staging them around it is a little much. With all she had going wrong in her life, it was easy for Julie to forget the old adage about judging others before walking in their shoes. She gets a painful reminder when she discovers that those pigs weren't just staged that way. They need to be kept busy or they'll make their own brand of bloody fun.
Story 5: "Voices" It was Mark's first time. He'd thought about it a lot and planned it out meticulously. He knew exactly how and where he would do it, but he didn't know who, until he saw her. It was the perfect murder. The only two people aware of the crime were the killer and the victim, and the victim can't talk...right? Now her voice is in his head, taunting him. Mark fears that he may be losing his mind, but this feels like something more.
Story 6: "Treasure Mine" Best friends. Lucky people have one. Joey, Mickey, and Chris each have two. When one of them is being forced to move away, the other two decide that they're going to do whatever it takes to keep them together, even if that means ignoring the warning signs to delve into an abandoned coal mine. Unfortunately, the chest they find doesn't contain treasure.
