News in the midnight
Together with the image, the words "NNN The News Bulletin" popped up at the top. For a while the screen continued to show the same dumping ground, viewed from a distance.
I carried on watching it, wondering what it was. Soon a lot of names started appearing, moving slowly up from the bottom of the screen, like end credits of a movie; and a monotonous voice read out these names one by one.
So it went on for the next five minutes or so, against a quiet, gloomy music in the background.
Finally when all the names had been said, the voice announced; "They are tomorrow's victims. Goodnight."
Ever since then I'm too scared to watch anything on TV past midnight.
And no one has ever believed my story either.
