The Graveyard

One night while I was walking home from my friend Jennifer's house I decided to take a short cut through the graveyard. I hated graveyards especially walking through them at night.

It was about 8:00pm and it was dark. As I walked through the graveyard I started feeling a shiver of fear run down my back. I started to shake and in the distance of the dark rocky road of Willow Lake Graveyard I noticed a young girl standing and staring right at me. She looked as if she was about 12 years of age. I was freaked out. I didn't know what to do, if I should go to her or should I fall on the ground or even run away. I was too scared to think or even move my finger. I was stiff with fear when I noticed the girl walking towards me. I ran as fast as I could. I ran out of the graveyard and took the busy streets home. I was scared.

When I arrived home I went to my bedroom. I didn't tell anyone about the girl because nobody would believe me and my mom always says I'm not allowed to walk home through the graveyard. I soon fell asleep.

The next morning I woke up and sat up in bed, I saw the little girl standing at the foot of my bed with an angry face. I screamed and cried. Soon she disappeared, it was the same girl from the graveyard. My mom rushed into the room and asked "whats wrong?" I said I saw a spider. After that I never saw her again.
