THE TOMB

IN ONE OF THE SUBURBS OF DETROIT THERE WAS A TOMB OF A FAMILY
WHICH WAS A MONUMENT THAT COULD BE ENTERED FROM THE OUTSIDE. SEVERA
YEARS AGO, A MAN VISITING THE TOMB WAS LOCKED IN AND DIED.
FOR SEVERAL YEARS TEENAGERS WENT THERE TO MAKE OUT BECAUSE OF ITS
REMOTENESS. ONE NIGHT A GIRL WAS LOCKED IN THE TOMB IN FUN AND
WAS FOUND DEAD THE NEXT DAY. HER HAIR HAD TURNED WHITE FROM
THE FRIGHT AND IT WAS SAID THAT SHE DIED OF A HEART ATTACK.
FOR SEVERAL DAYS GROUPS OF TEENAGERS VISITED THE TOMB BECAUSE
OF THE WIDESPREAD NOTICE THAT IT HAD GOTTEN. ONE NIGHT A GROUP
OF THESE VISITORS WAS ATTACKED BY A MOB OF OTHER TEENAGERS WHO
USED CLUBS AND FISTS TO BEAT THEM. TO THIS DAY BECAUSE OF THESE
TEENAGERS WHO GUARD THE TOMB NO ONE VISITS ANY MORE.
