“Chief he's just a kid, are we going to let him go in there all alone?“ One of the police officers asked a big gruff looking man in a overcoat, Chief Sardonic. He looked over to the offending officer at the police blockade near the Bottomsville Restful meadows cemetery gates and asked, “Did you want to go in there with him? Be my guest.“ About a hour earlier a trunk hauling Isotope soda had tried to use the cemetery as a shortcut and lost its trailer going around a corner too fast. Spilling its contents all over the graves. Unfortunately one was Ebenezer Mortus.
Ebenezer in life loved only one thing, peace and quiet. During his funeral the few people who visited him in his long thin coffin, for he was a extremely tall and thin man. They said he looked the happiest they had ever seen him. A hint of a smile was on his stern face for the first time, like he had finally found the peace and quiet he had been looking for.
The police officer who had spoken up started to say “Well if no one else is..“ he trailed off as the moans from the graveyard seemed to rise louder and louder. “Nope I didn't think so” said the chief. A couple of other so called heroes had showed up before the Kid did but no one had been brave enough to go in after being told what happened and hearing the moans. They had other thing mysterious come up and would leave in a rush. No one had the heart to tell him when he was the last to show up and said bravely “I'll go in first, tell the other heroes that I've already headed in when they show up.“ The chief had given the Kid a radio just in case.
The Kid bravely walked in and made his way deeper into the cemetery, until he was out of sight from the police officers, then he started shaking and had to hold onto a Tombstone to keep from falling to the ground. The moans where making his skin crawl and he remembered the jump scare ending on the game Town of the dead. Where the hero of the game thinks he has saved his girlfriend and..ulp..
“Mustn't think about that.“ As he tried to pull himself together. Speaking of someone pulling themselves together what came staggering out of the dark almost made the Kid jump out of his skin.I can't really describe it.The parents groups and teachers groups.. and people with good taste wouldn't be happy. Let's just say it was scary.
The Kid panicked and took off running to what he thought was the entrance but was unfortunately for him deeper into the cemetery. He came across more and more of the stuff I shouldn't describe, and that made him more panicked. One of the umm non living not so fresh things grabbed ahold of him and in a panic he punched it with his boxing gloved hand and it went to peices, and so did he but in another way. Then he calmed down and realized that he was stronger and faster than they where and that he had this.
Then the thing he hit started to pull itself back together. The scream echoed through the cemetery, out front at the police blockade, a few police officers
had been getting brave and had ventured in a little. One brave soul was even almost through the gate when the piercing scream reached them, and he passed out in fright. The chief yelled” Call a ambulance!“ Then mumbled to himself, “Why the heck was that truck driver even using the cemetery as a shortcut? There is only one way in or out.“
One panicked call from the wrecker driver with the truck driver screaming in the background as they sped away about being chased out by..the residents of the cemetery..
The Kid was running in blind terror and the.. residents yeah that the ticket,where stumbling after him. Then suddenly he ran face first into tree. The tree seemed to take more damage than he did. It was a very tall.. very thin… stinking..boney.. moaning.. When they collided and the tall skeletal figure collapsed the other..residents did also. Out like a light so to speak. Kid was back to his senses, seeing that they all weren't get back up said “YES I DID IT!“ With that outburst the skull of Ebenezer moaned “Quiet…. Silence..” Then turned its empty sockets to look at the Kid and said,”Not another peep..“ they stared at each for a few seconds, then the wailing of the ambulance cut through the dark night air.
The Kid was sure he saw a sneer go across the skulls face even though it had no skin. Louder and louder the siren got and the bones of the skeleton seemed to vibrate with rage and started drawing back together, the more recent..residents started to get back together and on their feet also. Kid watched in horror as all this was going on slowly turned on the radio the police Chief had given him, it made a shrill beeping noise and all was still for a second as every..head? Was turned towards Kid. He whispered “sorry.“ And that's when they all lunged for Kid. His fear slowly slipping away as he punched here and there, his boxing glove making dull thuds and sometimes squishy sounds. With his other had he called the Chief and yelled. “He hates noise, the big tall one. Need to be quie..“ the big skeleton ripped the radio from his hands and bashed it on a tombstone. Then smelly hand grabbed him from everywhere.
“You kids with your boom boxes, yelling and scream. Horse playing about.. hows a person supposed to get and rest around here, like you? You come screaming through here hitting that poor fellow over there. Not even offering to help him up..“ The first resident he met looked sadly at the ground. “Then you scream your head off and then run right into me, not even a thank you just yelling, you and your friends outside, need to go on away.“
Through the monologue the tall skeleton was giving Kid notice it was dead quiet besides the grumpy old man get off my lawn speech. He looked at the others they seemed kinda sad after he got over the shock of seeing them. Like they didn't want to be standing here but laying in their grave where they belong. It was the tall one that kept them on their feet and where helpless but to do his bidding. The tall one went on and on how things where going to change now that he was awake.. blah blah blah. Typical adult stuff thought Kid. Hes unable to see the pain he is causing the others just to have his tantrum.
The skeleton leaned in to let Kid know he ment business and the Kid, took his chance and kicked the skull as high and as hard as he could, the others seemed to lose power and sigh happily. Kid knew he had to act fast. He ran with great speed to catch the skull and run out of the cemetery before it could wake anything else from its eternal slumber. He hopped tombstone ducked tree branches till he made it to the police blockade the skull complained the whole way about youth having no respect for elders and so on.
He got the the Chief and showed him his prize explaining the events and asking to be sure everyone got put back in their right place.“So what do we do with this?“ The police Chief asked. “I dont know.“ said Kid. “But I do know that.. KID SMASHER SAVES THE DAY ONCE AGAIN! “ the skull groaned and Kid shoved it into tho Chiefs hand and said “here you go, you I wouldn't take him back in there..and you may want to get the rest of him before it wonders away…Kid Smasher! Away!“ And he ran off into the night.
