The Cemetery“Are you sure we won’t get caught?” Murmured Hayley, her boyfriend rolled his eyes.
“If you keep quiet,” he mumbled pointing towards the gates, illuminated by the moonlight. “These are the gates to the pond, come on.”
Hayley slowly followed behind as he pushed the gates open. The gates creaked open and their faces were alive with fear.
“Demetri,” Hayley whispered. “Maybe we should go and watch a movie?”
“We didn’t come here for nothing or are you scared of some old Halloween superstition?”
Hayley gulped down saliva.
“Honestly Demetri, Halloween? And why did it have to be at twelve at night?”
Demetri shook his head and ushered her through the gate.
The moonlight reflected off the pond’s surface and a small bridge was visible, weaving over the water.
“You aren’t afraid of a little cemetery garden, are you?”
“Actually, I am!” Hayley stammered.
Demetri chuckled silently and flung his arm around Hayley’s shoulder. She hesitated, but let him have his way.
“Let’s sit over here,” he pointed to an empty, mahogany bench near the water’s edge. “And we’ll stay an hour to prove to you that there’s no such thing as monsters.”
He continued holding Hayley’s shoulder. She shook slightly from the cold. They were silent for a while.
“Tell me this silly superstition properly, Demetri.”
“Well the graveyard is supposedly haunted by the ghosts of Vampire attacks. Apparently, every year on Halloween night, the ghosts come out to play and so does the murderer.
He seeks fresh blood, and every year a stupid pair of teenagers end up murdered. They come to the cemetery garden at twelve midnight in hope of seeing the ghosts but none live to tell the tale.”
And at that exact moment, someone leaped out from the bushes, sending Hayley into Demetri.
