"The Woman in the Wall" - The narrator hears a woman begging for help behind his wall at night and pulls the bricks out to check but there is no one there. The landlord is upset with him but figures maybe his divorce is causing him to act a little crazy so he tells him to replace the bricks and he'll forget about it. The man buys some bricks and hears the pleading again so he realizes the woman's soul is trapped in the bricks and inquires as to who made the bricks. He's told the man's name is Jesse and is given the address. The narrator suspects Jesse has killed the woman and dispersed her ashes in the bricks to get rid of the body. He searches the address and finds evidence of the crime just as Jesse returns. Jesse and the man struggle until a police car shows up and Jesse attempts to flee in the narrator's car. Jesse attempts to avoid the police car and strikes a hydrant, causing the bricks in the back of the car to fly forward, slamming into him and breaking his neck. The narrator buries the bricks in a shallow grave. 

"Hurry Monster" - A man is stuck in an infinite loop saving a younger version of himself from the Hurry Monster's claws.
