You are sitting at home, late one night, when you hear a spooky sound. To your surprise, a ghost walks in. The ghost sits down in a chair.

"Who are you?" you ask, your voice a horrified whisper.

"Don't you recognize me?" the ghost answers. "I am the man you murdered."

You shrink back into your chair, hardly able to breathe. "No! That's impossible!"
