    • Sam: I've been saving this story for a long time. And I think tonight's the best night to tell it. It's a story about illusion and and deception. Some things may look familiar but they could be hiding a secret that you'd never expect. It could be beautiful or mysterious or, like in my story, something evil. Submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society, I call this story...The Tale of the Night Shift.
