A man went to a hotel and walked
up to the front desk to check in.
The woman at the desk gave him
his key and told him that on the
way to his room, there was a door
with no number that was locked
and no one was allowed in there.
Especially no one should look
inside the room, under any
circumstances. So he followed the
instructions of the woman at the
front desk, going straight to his
room, and going to bed.

The next night his curiosity would
not leave him alone about the
room with no number on the
door. He walked down the hall to
the door and tried the handle.
Sure enough it was locked. He
bent down and looked through
the wide keyhole. Cold air passed
through it, chilling his eye. What
he saw was a hotel bedroom, like
his, and in the corner was a
woman whose skin was
completely white. She was leaning
her head against the wall, facing
away from the door. He stared in
confusion for a while. He almost
knocked on the door, out of
curiosity, but decided not to.

He crept away from the door and
walked back to his room. The next
day, he returned to the door and
looked through the keyhole. This
time, all he saw was red. He
couldn't make anything out
besides a distinct red color.
Perhaps the inhabitants of the
room knew he was spying the
night before, and had blocked the
keyhole with something red.

At this point he decided to
consult the woman at the front
desk for more information. She
sighed and said, "Did you look
through the keyhole?" The man
told her that he had and she said,
"Well, I might as well tell you the
story. A long time ago, a man
murdered his wife in that room,
and her ghost haunts it. But these
people were not ordinary. They
were white all over, except for
their eyes, which were red."
