The dead silence of the night perturbed him. Though he didn’t believe in ghosts, spending a night amongst the dead and the buried was not something he was looking forward to. But $100 was a lot, it could put food on the table for one whole week.

He found a clean looking tombstone and sat on it. The matured moon was hidden behind thick dark clouds.

“Who are you?” a thick voice demanded. He almost peed in his pants. He turned to see an old and weary man approaching him.

“Mike?”

“And you?”

“Joe Rodriguez,” the old man answered.

“What has brought you here?”

“$100 if I stay put,” Mike replied confidently now the initial fear had subsided.

“It’s no place for a young lad like you.”

“I don’t believe in ghosts,” Mike answered. The old man nodded and disappeared into the dark of the night.

The next moment, the clouds parted and the moon shone on the tombstone.

Joseph Xavier Rodriguez

1893 – 1965

A loving son, husband and father

Mike passed out, but not before he felt the wetness of his pants.

    I’m a sucker for a story where someone wets themselves. Even without the peeing, you’ve created a very good story here. It’s kind of spooky, kind of fun, kind of funny. Good job.

  3. Could see it coming, but the atmosphere created was so lovely! 😀
