during the last summer me and a few of my freinds Jake, Morgan, and amira decided to go to bachelors grove. im not going to lie we were going to go to sit by the lake and drink and of course freak each other out. i was horribly wrong on how i thought this night was going to turn out.

when we got to the trail i lit up a clove cigerertte and everyone was freaking out because it smelled like a church. suddenly as we passed into the grove it suddenly got extremely cold but we thought nothing of it.

we walked around and noticed the unfinished grave with the baby and father markers. i sorta got the feeling that this place wasnt haunted but just extremly saddening. i was really wrong. my freind jake just said we should go to the lake and get out of the actual graveyard to drink because we all didnt want to be disrepectful. on the tree next to be unfinished grave i put out my clove and started to walk down to the lake. when i got down there a little i noticed a shimmering white reflection in the water, and i thought it was just a lightpost from 143rd street. i looked up and there was a woman floating dressed in white with black eyes. of course i screamed and then backed up, i looked to me left to turn to my freinds and a black figure ran from one tree to the other.

i then backed into jake and morgan and i was freaking out. i told them what happened and jake said his girlfreind rose saw that same white lady. ok whatever i thought lets just read a few more graves and then get out. i lit up another smoke because i thought the ghosts might be afraid of the smell because nothing happened while i was smoking the last one. i also notice that i had 2 smokes left. so we walked around a little bit and stopped at a marker as my freind amira was complaining about how she didnt see anything. as she said that the tree that had fallen over and crushed the fence on the opposite side of the graveyard we were on just started shaking and rattling on the fence. whole trees do not move! this went on until we all left the cemetary scared.

we got half way down the path and jake asked me for my matches that i had. i had dropped my previous smoke when the tree freaked us, so i gave him my matches and we continued walking. i also noticed jakles backpack with all the beer in it was open and all of the beer was gone! we were all a little pissed off but we wernt going back for it. a little down i felt a cold breath on my neck and a growling sound, i slowly turned around and where the entrance of the graveyard was the same black figure walked out of the entrance stopped looked at me and then walked into the woods. i turned and jake saw what i saw and we just ran past amira and morgan screaming.

when we finally got back to the car i pulled out another smoke and i had one left and i asked jake for my matches. he couldnt find my matches and said he probably lost them running. but then he pulled out a black lighter. previously when we decided to go to the graveyard i saw jake pull out all his pockets and him whinning about not having a lighter. he then told me that his dead grandfather told jake when he was dying from lung cancer that he would haunt jake and give him black lighters if he ever took up smoking. weird but a coincidence. when we got back to the parking lot where my car was we all decided to go home when i got into my car i wanted my last smoke so i got my pack out and opened it. there was 4 smokes in there. it was like i didnt even smoke the 3 in bachelors. i then threw the pack out the window and got out of my car screaming. jake pulled up and i told him what happened and he laughed from his car. he then put his hat on whic he took off when he was running and drove away a little. he then slammed on the breaks and got out of his car screaming and then threw his hat which he was now holding over to me. my matches had fallen into his lap when he took off his hat. i laughed because i thought i was starting to go insane or something. i got my matches, my haunted smokes and drove home.

later on when i told my parents about what happened my dad told me that 20 years ago when he was a kid he saw the same white woman that i did.

that is my story. i know its long but that is the entire thing. and i still get goosebumps from telling it.

sincerly,
Mike Tomasek
