Leo bought a new house a week ago. He was looking for an attractive painting to decorate his drawing room. He went to a carnival to end his search. There, he found a shop full of antique items and paintings. Leo’s eyes were rolling in search of a masterpiece. Finally he saw a painting on which his eyes glued to. It was a painting of a small goblin, sitting on a chair with a pipe. He paid the price and brought the painting to his house.
Leo was sleeping in his room but was awakened by giggling sounds. He came downstairs to check. In the drawing room where he hung the painting, he found that the goblin in the painting wasn’t there. It was strange.
He heard the giggling sound again… This time… from upstairs. When he entered his room he found nothing.
“Hi Hi Hi”, the sound came again. And this time from behind. It was the goblin. Leo was shocked. The creature pushed him to the floor. The goblin took the alarm clock and broke it on Leo’s head. Leo wasn’t expecting this attack and fainted.
When he regained his consciousness, he found that the goblin from the painting was standing in front of him—
“You… cannot be real?”
“I am real! I’ve been trapped in this painting for centuries.”
“Who trapped y…you?”
“The Goblin king… it was a punishment. A curse! And there is only a way to get rid of this life,” said the goblin.
“I have to kill a human, and possess his body.”
Goblin jumped onto Leo to kill him. Leo kicked him in the face and ran towards the kitchen. He took a knife and at the same moment, the goblin jumped on him. The goblin was stabbed in the chest. Goblin held Leo’s hand and told him , “the one who kills a goblin will become a goblin too”. Later, the goblin died. Leo didn’t believe him and burned his body.
Weeks later… He noticed that green hairs had been grown on his body.
Leo’s house had been sold. A new family came to live in the house. The painting had been sold as well. The painting was in an antique shop. Leo was there but this time he’s inside the painting. He had become a goblin.
[When Leo was unconscious, the goblin replaced his soul with Leo’s and he’s wandering now in Leo’s body. And Leo had been trapped in the painting.]
