Being curious like little boys are, Jimmy had a hard time sleeping at night because of what lies beyond his backyard in the woods. Jimmy would be even more scared at night when it was storming outside. He would get out of bed, and go over to the window, and be able to get a glimpse of the cemetery because of the lightning. He could see the old wooden fence that was barely standing, that surrounded the crypt, and a few broken tombstones, but felt safe if he left the light on in his room, and the curtain closed.
One day when he was playing in his backyard he threw a rock at the crypt and said, "Wake up you bunch of lazy dead people. All you do is sleep all day and night. I wish someone would destroy the cemetery so I wouldn't have nightmares anymore." Then as he was heading out of the woods he thought he seen a man coming out of the crypt, and could have sworn he heard his name called. Jimmy didn't wait around to see if it was just his imagination playing tricks on him. He ran as fast as he could to tell his parents what he saw. Jimmy's mother and father laughed and his father said, "There's nothing in that cemetery, but some old broken tombstones. If it will make you feel any better, I'll go with you, and check it out, and you'll see you're just imaging things."
