An old man was out for a walk. When a storm came up, he looked for a place to take shelter. Soon he came to an old house. He ran up on the porch and knocked on the door, but nobody answered.
     By now rain was pouring down, thunder was booming, and lighting was flashing. So he tried the door. When He found it was unlocked, he went inside.
     Except for a pile of wooden boxes, the house was empty. He broke up some of the boxes and made fire with them. Then he sat down if front of the fire and dried himself. It was warm and cozy that he fell asleep.
     When he woke up a black cat was sitting near the fire. It stared at him for a while. Then it purred. "That's a nice cat," he thought, and he dozed off again.
     When he opened his eyes, there was a second cat in the room. But this one was as big as a wolf. It looked at him vary closely, and it asked, "Shall we do it now?" "No," said the other cat. "Let's wait till Martin comes."
     "I must be dreaming," thought the old man. He closed his eyes again. Then he took another look. But now there was a third cat in the room, and this one was as big as a tiger. It looked the old man over, and it asked, "Shall we do it now?"
     "No," said the others. "Let's wait till Martin comes."
      The old man jumped up, jumped out the window and started running. "when Martin comes, tell him I couldn't wait," he called.

This was the best story from scary stories to tell in the dark. I loved it so much that I did a storyline in my webcomic where my characters encountered those cats.

I made my own version. One that I based off of another version...in which Martin finally arrives.
