Encounter on Cemetery Hill

"Encounter on Cemetery Hill"

Cemetery Road, as it's known, has been a popular shortcut for well over a century, even though the road was never entirely paved. During the day, and when the weather is dry, it's a popular timesaver for drivers bent on avoiding traffic. As twilight falls, it becomes a favorite for romantic young lovers who park, and, along with other pastimes, view the twinkling lights of the town below.

The old cemetery holds graves that go back to Civil War times and earlier. Having been pretty well fully populated for many years, the "Old Burying Ground" now lies abandoned, its monuments yielding to decades of neglect, winter frosts and spring rains, gradually eroding, tilting and toppling long-forgotten headstones. Only a few of the Victorian era mansions and structures remain today, and they're as abandoned and decrepit as the sprawling cemetery they border.

Over the years, there have been innumerable accounts of strange happenings, odd floating lights, shadowy hitchhikers, and so forth, many, no doubt concocted around campfires to evoke screams send shivers down the backs of wide-eyed campers and cub scouts. (Surely you've heard the legend of The Cemetery Hill Slasher? I thought as much!) So it's no wonder that many drivers would rather opt for the long way around rather than risk their own scary nighttime encounter on Cemetery Hill.

This evening, heading for home and a little late for supper, Dad has decided to take Cemetery Hill road. Why now, when it's well after sunset? Maybe it was paternal machismo... possibly emboldened by the bright moonlight and clear sky overhead. In retrospect, this may not have been a good idea. Though who could have anticipated that flat tire?

No doubt they'll soon have their own nighttime "Encounter on Cemetery Hill" story to tell.
