The little boy hid in the closet, but then he heard footsteps coming up the stairs outside.
He peeked out of the closet and saw a man in a black suit with a black hat standing at the door. The man had no face and was just a dark shadow.
"Hello boys," he said, "I'm here to play a game with you. I want to play hide and seek in your apartment."
The older boy stepped out of his room, and said, "You can't come in here! You have no face! We don't know who you are!"
The man stepped into the apartment as if it was his own home.
"I am Death," he said, "and I must take one of you away with me tonight. Now let us play hide-and-seek before it is too late for your brother to live and let us play now! "
The older boy ran to the phone to call his parents, but when he turned around, he saw that Death had taken his little brother away with him.
The older brother was so afraid that Death might come back for him, so he ran out of the apartment and down the stairs.
He ran to his neighbor's house next door and knocked on the door, but nobody answered.
The boys' parents had gone to town to buy groceries for supper. When they returned home from grocery shopping, they were shocked when they saw their younger boy lying in the middle of their living room floor. His eyes were wide open but lifeless.
"Oh my God!" screamed the father as he fell on his knees beside his son's body, "What happened? Who is responsible for this?" He then noticed a black hat lying in a corner of the room with no one wearing it. It was a black hat just like Death wore when he came to play hide-and-seek with the boys!
The older brother knew that Death was responsible for the death of his younger brother. So, he went to the police station and told them everything that happened that night, and he gave them the black hat as evidence.
The police arrested Death and imprisoned him in a cell.
After many months, Death had grown tired of being imprisoned and not allowed to play hide-and-seek with anyone.
So, one night when no one was watching, he escaped from his cell through a tiny crack in the wall that no one had noticed before. He then made his way back to the apartment where he had played hide-and-seek with two boys years ago.
When he got there, he heard two kids playing hide-and-seek in the apartment next door. He quickly slipped into an open window and hid behind a curtain on the wall. Then he listened carefully to see if they were coming after him again, but this time they were just playing for fun.
He waited patiently for them to finish their game so that he could come out from hiding and play another game of hide-and-seek with them. But when they finished their game, they just laughed and left without noticing him hiding behind the curtain!
When Death realized that there were no more children left to play hide-and-seek with him, he hung his head in sadness as tears streamed down his face…
And so, Death continued to hide in the shadows, waiting for a child to come and play with him.
