2 days after I ran screaming like a…Well, like the girl that I am, I decided to go back to Springhill Cemetery! I was gonna face my fears OR die with wet pants trying! So how was this time ANY different from the last?? For starters, this time I brought back up!
I’M BACK BITCHES!
OR should I say “WE’RE” back BITCHES! Driving through the black iron gates again I felt a little bolder, especially having my Bestie by my side! I felt that we should discuss some ground rules before getting out…
JENN’S RULES FOR THE CEMETERY!
#1 (and MOST important!): NEVER LOOK AT THE PICS YOU’RE TAKING WHILE YOU’RE STILL AT THE CEMETERY!!!
That’s it, that’s my ONLY rule…And I NEVER break it! The reason is pretty simple…I’d rather NOT know if I have company (that I can’t see!) while I’m still exploring a location. Trust me, it’s better to wait so just DON’T do it!
STARTING WITH A BANG!
The 1st few minutes weren’t so bad. We split up for a bit to explore separate areas & nothing too freaky happened. It’s when we came back together that the sh$t REALLY began to hit the fan! It started off kinda light-hearted, we were talking, laughing…The Bestie made me eat graveyard dirt. Yes, you absolutely read that correctly, I got a stick full of dirt from the very cemetery that I believe IS a portal to HELL! Now that I think about it, I wonder if that’s the reason that I have such crappy luck sometimes! To my delight, we managed to catch the moment on video…Yee Haw!
DIRT IN MY EYES & A CREEPSTER IN MY PERSONAL SPACE!
Once we were both done getting a good chuckle at my expense, I cleaned myself off & started using my “Real” camera ( My Nikon instead of my phone) to start taking some more pics. We were standing in the far back corner & I turned to take a few shots of the entrance & the flag pole next to it. I took 2 OR 3 pics & went to snap a 4th when I saw something strange on the screen. It started as a large ball & began to take shape. I rubbed my eyes, thinking “Oh Sh$T, maybe I got more dirt in my eyes than I thought!” BUT the Bestie was standing right behind me & I know by the look on her face that she saw it too!! Trying to keep my hands from shaking, I pointed my camera in the same direction & started taking pic after pic, each showing the strange “shape” getting bigger, more formed & closer to us! By the time it had closed the distance between us, it could very clearly be identified as a “person”…At least in shape! By the time I took my 10th OR so pic, it appeared to have passed through the little white wooden half fence that we were right behind & was now standing right in front of us! When I wasn’t looking at the camera’s screen, I couldn’t see it BUT I know that it wasn’t something wrong with the camera & if I wasn’t a true believer in the power of Springhill at that point, it would ONLY be a few more minutes before I’d have NO choice but to cross over, LITERALLY!
WHEN THE BESTIE SINGS SOPRANO!
At this point I’m NOT gonna lie, we were rattled! Somehow we managed to push that aside & finish what we’d started. I will say that neither one of us ventured very far from the other for the remainder of our time there (which wouldn’t be much longer due to the upcoming event!). It was FINALLY time to face the doll grave…The little bastards were still in their places, staring & smirking the same way they had 2 days before! I was standing next to them, just getting up the courage to tell them to “KNOCK THAT SH&T OFF”, when I heard the Bestie deliver a line that got my full attention…”Um, I Think It’s Time For Us To Go!” It wasn’t so much the words coming out of her mouth as the high pitch that she had in her voice while speaking them…I swear she sounded like Jack from the show “Will & Grace” whenever he gets mad! I’d NEVER heard her sound like that before, so what she was saying had to be important! Of course she was calm BUT as soon as I looked up & saw her face I freaked the “F” Out! I jumped back from the creepy ass doll grave & as I fast walked over to where she stood, I just kept frantically repeating “WHAT?” “WHAT?” “WHAT?” As soon as I was standing next to her, I saw EXACTLY WHAT! HOLY…F’ING…SH$T!!!
I TOLD YOU NOT TO LOOK!
Running is really NOT something that either one of us do regularly BUT I’m NOT ashamed to say that we hauled 7 kinds of ass that day! When we were locked safe in the car we looked at each other in shock & NOT knowing what else to say, I said “You Broke The Rule…I Told You NOT To Look!” She just looked at me, shook her head & started the car. SCORE: Springhill = 2…Us = 0…Well Damn!
OH, BTW…I’m pretty sure that I DON’T need to explain the FINAL straw that sent the camels packing…Just take a look for yourself & tell me what you see!
