Able Fable was a miserable old man, who was always worried that someone would break into his house and steal all his money. Each night before he would go to sleep, he would lock his wallet up in a safe located near his bed so that if anyone were to try to rob him they would have to wake him up to do it. Unfortunately, on the night that Able died he had only placed the wallet on the table near the safe without locking it up. Before his death, Able said to his family and friends that none of them were to touch his home or his money and he said that anyone who came near his safe and wallet would be greeted by his ghost and be scared away. Following Able's death the family decided that the money in the Fable house was not doing any good if not used, so they went into the home to get it.
Able's oldest son decided to make the first attempt. He opened the door and went in, he saw Able's wallet on the table and reached for it. Immediately he heard a voice say:
"I am the ghost of Able Fable, put the money back on the table!"
The voice scared the son so much that he ran from the room and out the door, screaming: "I heard the voice of a ghost!"
The oldest daughter in disbelief decided she would make her way into Able's room. She entered and reached for the wallet.
She then heard the voice say: "I am the ghost of Able Fable, put the money back on the table!"
The daughter was so scared that she dropped the wallet and ran from the room screaming: "I heard the voice of a ghost!"
The youngest son decided to make his attempt at getting the money. When he entered the room and reached for the wallet he also heard the voice say: "I am the ghost of Able Fable, put the money back on the table!"
The youngest son decided that he was not easily scared and said back: "Well, I am the ghost of Davey Crockett and the money is going to stay in my pocket!"
The youngest son took all the money for his own and the ghost of Able Fable was never heard from again!
