Me and lonny b. Wanted to go camping one night so we made a makeshift tent out of a tarp and pitched it against a tree at the bottom of the graveyard by church Street and Webster Elementary School. The graveyard has a downward sloping hill into some undeveloped woods with a stream that runs through it.
This undeveloped patch of woods was a god send now that I look back on it but to be quite honest with you I never really gave thought to the fact that a grave yard was at the top of the rise and I don't think any of my friends gave any thought to it either.
We were always too busy playing in the woods like children should. So me and lonny got the tent pitched and wouldn't you know it it started raining. We thought we were insanely brave we were only 12 at the time and to look back on it I guess we were pretty brave.|
Huddled together under that tarp the wet and cold were bad enough but then the thunder and lightning started. I don't remember which one of us heard it first but lonny was the first to say out loud he heard it a voice seemed to be aimed at us.
We couldn't really make it out. So we stuck our heads out of the tarp. And there at the top of the hill at The Edge of the cemetery was an old man outlined in a green haze. You could tell by his posture he was angry and to tell you the truth this was the first instance I had given any thought to the fact that we were for all intensive purposes sleeping in a grave yard.
As the fight or flight fear was trying to make a decision as to the course of action lightning flashed and when the lightning stopped the old man was gone. The honest to god next memory I have is of being half way home about a meter ahead of lonny we were running like the devil himself was chasing us.
