A man walks into a bookstore. He walks around and sees a notebook behind a counter that’s locked in a glass box.
He asks the cashier what book it is and the cashier says he’d need to get confirmation from the manager. The man asks him to do so.
Moments later a tall, slender man with pale skin walks up to him claiming to be the manager. He tells the man that the book is actually a sacred relic which was uncovered during an expedition of some old ruins. The manager says that the book is priced at $1000, in order to ward off potential buyers.
The man insists he wants to buy the book, although the manager warns him otherwise. At last, the manager agrees to sell him the book but he warns the man of a curse that will befall him if the last page of the book were to ever be opened.
The man agrees and pays the $1000 then leaves with the book.
When he gets home, he decides to leave the book open on the table of his apartment while he goes and washes up. When he is done, he sees the pages of the book blowing open and he realises he forgot to close the windows.
He rushes over to the book in an attempt to close it but it’s too late. When the book flips to the last page, he sees a sight that shocks him to the core.
It reads: “Fixed price: $3.”
