THE CADET GHOST OF ST. JOHN'S

ABOUT SEVEN YEARS THERE WAS A CADET AT ST. JOHN'S WHO
WAS VERY UNHAPPY. THE PRESSURES OF SCHOOL WERE REALLY
GETTING TO HIM AND TO TOP IT OFF, HE WAS NOT GOING
TO BE ABLE TO GO HOME FOR THANKSGIVING.
ONE NIGHT, AFTER QUIET HOURS HAD BEGUN, HE PLAYED
A BEATLES RECORD VERY LOUD. EVEYONE THOUGHT THAT
THIS WAS STRANGE BECAUSE HE KNEW THAT IT WAS QUIET HOURS
AND THERE WAS TO BE NO NOISE. AFTER A WHILE SOMEONE HEARD
A SCREAM. EVERYONE WENT DOWN TO HIS ROOM TO SEE WHAT
WAS THE MATTER. THE CADETS FOUND THEIR FRIEND HANGING
FROM A ROPE. HE HAD COMMITTED SUICIDE.
NO ONE EVER LIVED IN THAT ROOM AGAIN.
EVERY YEAR ON THE NIGHT OF HIS DEATH THE CADETS CAN
HEAR BEATLES MUSIC COMING FROM HIS ROOM, THOUGH NO ONE
IS LIVING THERE. THEN, A WHILE LATER A SCREAM IS
HEARD THROUGHOUT THE BUILDING.
NO ONE CAN EXPLAIN THE MUSIC OR THE SCREAM.

Submitter comment: INFORMANT IS MY BROTHER.
HE TOLD ME THAT THE CADETS JUST SIT IN THE HALL ON THAT
NIGHT AND WAIT FOR THIS TO HAPPEN.
