|After a night of vandalizing a graveyard, one teen soon regrets his actions.|
The Disturbed Graves. The four friends decided to visit the graveyard just on the spur of the moment. Kyle parked across the street from the graveyard while his stoned friends piled out of the car. There was a cool summer night breeze in the air as they made their way across the street laughing and giggling in the dark night. They did make it across the street safely since there was no traffic in the dark night. No one of them was aware that it was just passed midnight. Their intention was not to hang out or party in the cemetery. What they planned to do was more destructive in nature. It was Dale that had suggested the idea that they go to a graveyard and tip over some tombstones. Why you might ask? There is no good reason except maybe they were just being rowdy typical teenagers that they were. It didn't help that they were high on some weed that they had purchased earlier that night. They had vandalized other places before such as schools and peoples sheds and cars. This would be the first time that they would do a cemetery. They brought with them cans of spray paint and a sledgehammer to knock over the tombstones. They had no idea why they were doing it except that it seemed like a good idea at the time and that it would be fun. Like many other teens, they did not stop to think about what the consequences could be. As they passed around another joint among themselves, they walked through the gates of the graveyard. Not one of them stopped to consider what they were doing. When they had finished the joint they then proceeded to kick over and spray paint graffiti on the tombstones. He had no idea what had put the idea into his mind, but Kyle then yelled to his three friends. “Hey you guys, check this out!” He took the sledgehammer and swung it hard on a gray tombstone that was to his right. His friends whooped and cheered as they stone tablet fell to the ground. But Kyle was not done yet. He lifted the hammer high over his head and then swung it back down hard. The tombstone started to break into pieces as he kept swinging the hammer on it again and again as his friends cheered him on. Without warning, there was a loud crash of thunder from the sky. It was so loud that they four friends stood in shock. A cold wind then howled through the graveyard directly at the four friends. They had no idea what to do as lightning flashed out around them. “Let's get the Hell out of here!” Dale then yelled as he started to run towards the gates. His friends soon followed as it started to rain on them and the thunder continued to roar above them. They ran as if the devil himself were on their tails. They got into the car and Kyle fumbled for his keys. “Come on man.” Joey cried. “Start this thing up!” Kyle did find his keys and then put them into the ignition. When he turned to the key to start the car, nothing happened. “Let's go! Let's go!” Dave yelled. “I'm trying!” Kyle snapped back. He turned the ignition again and again. On the fourth attempt, the vehicle roared into life. They quickly pulled away from the graveyard. If there had been any cops on patrol on that street, they would have been pulled over for speeding. There was silence in the car as Kyle drove each of his friends to their homes. To him it was weird timing when the storm had arrived. He then decided that they were all just really stoned and paranoid. When he was asleep in his bed, he had a strange dream. He was back in the graveyard and there was a man who looked to be in his late forties with thinning black hair and glasses looking at him. The man pointed to Kyle as he stood over the remains of a broken tombstone. With anger Click here to read the rest of this story (115 more lines)
