Okay, my friends and I are very extremely curious. Sometimes our curiosity gets us into scary situations like this one did.
The Old Union Cemetery, said to have been haunted by ghosts, was about 5-7 miles out of town. We were bored one night and decided to check it out. We grabbed flashlights, our phones, and we were out the door. Driving up to the cemetery we saw usual things: tombstones, statues, and wildflowers growing in the underbrush. We stepped out of the car to check things out, and we walked to the back of the cemetery which was a distance from the car. Then we heard crying. We turned to look, and there was a little girl dressed in dated clothes. She was sitting near a gravestone sobbing with her face in her lap. ''Hello?'' We yelled making sure not to get close. She looked up at us. It revealed dark circles around her eyes, as if she hadn't slept in a while. Then we heard laughter ''hehehe. '' We quickly turned around to see what was there, and there was nothing. ''Guys!'' my friend called out ''she is gone. '' The girl had disappeared. We all started freaking out.
As we walked back to the car, we heard a girl crying and screaming for help. ''HELP! HELP!'' It was the most horrific sound I had ever heard. My friends didn't want to check it out. ''Leave it! It's probably something weird!'' I insisted and continued to pursue the horrifying screaming. We saw a man wearing an old union army uniform holding the little girl from before down. We all quickly ducked down behind the tall grass and starting calling 911. Go figure, no service. The girl was screaming again. That was it. My friend stood and shouted ''stop!'' The man looked over and stood up. The girl looked up amazed; someone had said something. Her face revealed that the dark circles were from the strange man hitting her. The man got up, walked into the distance, and disappeared.
We ran to the girl, and she scooted away. ''How old are you?'' We asked. She held up both her index finger saying she was 11. ''Are you okay?'' She nodded smiling. ''Thank you. '' She said. ''You've set me free. '' I blinked, and she was gone. In the car I figured out what she meant. That little girl got hurt every night by the strange man, the one laughing at the girl when she was crying. That was why her eyes were dark (black eyes from the beatings. ) We were the first people to say anything. That is why she looked so amazed. After we said something the man stopped and disappeared sending him to hell. We set her free out of his grasp, so she could go to heaven. We still have no idea how this could have happened, but I'm glad it did.
