The story of chasing a rumor, as related in the famous book “Chasing a Rumor,” by Joseph M. Manktelitsky, is about a young man who wanted to make good money on his own through a small-scale scam. The scam worked well for him for a time, but he soon discovered that other people were starting to believe the story. For this reason, he was ready to throw in the towel, but a priest named Moses presented him with a vision.
The story of chasing a mabinogi begins when Manktelitsky and his cousin Marko were walking on the street in front of their home. They were talking about something when they were attacked by a drunk man. Manktelitsky quickly identified the attacker as a drunk who had started the argument from the front porch. According to the story, the attacker told them to get out of the way so he could go inside and get what he needed. Manktelitsky asked him why he would do that and the drunk answered, “CATCH ME IF YOU CAN.” Manktelitsky tried to pull his gun, but the drunk fled into a nearby ditch.
The story continued: the man returned, apologized for his actions and said he thought he would have paid more attention when he heard someone was being attacked. Manktelitsky asked if he could speak with the man again and the man said he had to go somewhere else. Manktelitsky then noticed something strange about the man: he was pale and he looked like he had been smoking marijuana. He then grabbed a stick from his pocket and aimed it at the man’s stomach. When the man stumbled backwards, Manktelitsky reached forward with his gun and told him, “What are you doing? You’re just chasing a dream.”
The story continued with the victim telling another story. According to this version of events, the victim saw Manktelitsky and told him he needed help. Manktelitsky tossed him the mabinogi, which the man ate. He told the story of how he had seen a similar case a few days before and how he helped the man to find a way out of his bind by getting him to the hospital. Later, while the man was sleeping, Manktelitsky got up, retrieved the stick from his pocket, pointed it at the man’s stomach and said, “I think you have had enough of chasing a dream.” The man bolted from the room in tears.
Manktelitsky has since gone on to write several books (200 sách hay nhất) on cases of mistaken identity, mental illness and similar themes. In some stories he has explored the idea of poltergeist activity and related topics. However, one book in particular caught my attention. It was about a man who’d had an unsettling experience during the early years of his marriage. The man, it turns out, had once been the victim of a brutal sexual attack in a cabin in Upstate New York. The ordeal ended, however, with the man having a brain tumor and being diagnosed with chronic depression.
While at first, I believed the story to be true, it soon became obvious to me that it wasn’t. The story was, in fact, a creation of a writer with a true story in mind. So it is with chasing a haunted house from the past. Think about it for a moment and then write it down.
