Terror in the Cemetery

I like to bet on anything that is exciting , so when my friends tried to tempt me with an offer, I took it.The idea was for me to spend a frigid December night in a cemetery. all alone ,in order to win twentydollars. Littledid I realize that they would use dirty tricks to try to frighten me into abandoning the cemetery, therefore losing my wager.

My plan was to recline in front of a large grave, covered by a warm blanket, with a flash-light to helpme cut through the dismal darkness.

After midnight ,I heard a wild shriek .I thought I saw the grave open and a corpse rise out of it!

Although I was somewhat numb with fear, I tried to keep my senses. Using good judgment ,I knew that no peril could come to me from thatsinister figure. When I did not run in terror ,my friends, who had decided to conceal themselves behind the nearby tombstones, came out and we all had a good laugh. Those spirits that may inhabit a cemetery must have had a good laugh, too.
