“Death Angel Awaits”


Description from Daisy Chick - Dawn: An icey wind blew the colored leaves to and fro amongest the headstones. A cat darted between the grave stones and let a nasty yowl and hiss. I jumped with a start and gasped. The hairs on my neck lifted with unease. I had been doing research on my family tree and decided to check out some of the very artistic grave markers and the family crypt. Unaware whispers guided me to a well carved crypt with our family name deeply carved in granite. I opened the creaking iron gate and walked closer to the door. I tripped and fell into the door landing on the marble floor of the crypt. I was scared perhaps I was pushed? No I reassoned it is your imagination. I began to feel silly. I gathered my notepad and started to sketch the stained glass window. They sure don't build them like this anymore I thought busy with my pencil. The sun was low in the sky and I began to notice the window taking on a more sinister look. I began to feel closed in. To my horror the crypts door slammed shut. I panicked and tried to open the door. It was locked and twilights last rays were fading fast. Exhausted I fell asleep. I dreamed of spirits of the past, angels of mercy and angels of evil. Sometimes I was in heaven it seemed and sometimes in hell. Then there was limbo. The fear clenched at my heart and scared me to death. The next morning the crypt door creaked open and rays of light streamed in. Two people stood looking at me. The poor thing a young voice said checking my belongings. She peeked at my I.D. They looked everywhere for you and we have finally found you. I guess this explains things and why they called off the search. The family mystery has ended. I saw her notepad and my future relative and it was dated 2112 a hundred years had gone by.
The end!

    Thank-you ladies! I am having second thoughts now going to our family crypt to clean it up. There is a big iron gate that is in front of the crypt and a very heavy iron door that creeks when you open it. Steve always brings oil with to unstick it. I think I make sure I keep it well propped open!
