When I turned 16 I got my license and my sis was teaching me
to drive in the cemetery. The cemetery is called Patten Cemetery. It is
located in LaPorte Indiana on McCollums road down at the dead end. As you go
into the cemetery the trees grow over the road making it look like midnight
during mid day.
Driving as reckless teens do, I hit a big rock or something.
My sis said there was nothing there. It turned out I hit eight grave stones.
They were all piled up. We didn't know which went where so we put them back as
best we could.
That night we were sleeping and I woke up. I felt something
watching me My eyes popped open to see a hideous face, puke green hair and
nails. They were more like claws. It was as if the hair and nails never stopped
grow growing after death. The thing was in my bedroom doorway. I could see it.
It was like a dream but I knew it wasn't. I was terrified and couldn't move.
It reached out and raked me with its claws. The nails were
crusty, curly, dirty and long. I remember screaming as loud as I could. Pulling
my eyes shut until my mom ran in and started shaking me. There was blood all
over my face from the scratch and she cleaned it off. The next day I went back
to where I had hit the grave markers. The stones were piled back up like they
were the day before, right after I hit them. I had my older brother help me and
we fixed the headstones again.
I was scared that night. I didn't sleep at all. I was afraid
it would come back and hurt me again. Deep into the night, I heard something.
A Door slammed but no one was up ! I ran to my older brothers room as fast as I
could and crawled into his bed. I hid under the covers for a few minutes hoping
I had escaped.
Curiosity got the better of me and a few minutes later I
looked out. There it was, the Thing from the last night ! I cried a
bloodcurdling scream. When everyone woke up, it was gone. I had screamed so
loud my neighbor called to see what was wrong.
The next day the stones were in a pile again. The same way
they were the last two days. My brother wanted to put them back. I didn't know
what to do but I knew that wouldn't work. The caretaker saw us and the grave
stones. He came over and we told him what had happened.
He brought out the grave plots and it didn't surprise me to
find out there was something strange about
one. One of the grave markers had belonged to a murderer.
Someone who had been executed for his crime. I have never once returned to that
