"The Cemetery Path"

Summary

Ivan is a timid little Russian man. He is terrified of crossing through the local cemetery at night. One night, after drinking too much, he is dared to cross the cemetery and stick a sword in a designated spot as proof. He accepts for unknown reasons (most likely due to intoxication). However, when he stabs the sword into the ground, he accidentally stabs his coat as well, trapping him. While a calmer man might have realized the error and removed the sword to free himself, he panicked and was literally scared to death. He died in the cemetery, alone. His fear was ultimately his end.
