GHOST IN GARDEN

ONE EVENING MY BROTHER AND I WERE TAKING THE GARBAGE OUT TO THE
ALLEY. WE HAD ALMOST REACHED THE HOUSE WHEN WE HEARD A NOISE
NEAR THE GARDEN. WE LOOKED AROUND AND SAW A VERY OLD MAN
PICKING TOMATOES OUT OF THE GARDEN. HE WAS VERY WHITE AND SCARY
LOOKING. HE NEVER SAID ANYTHING, ALL HE DID WAS SMILE AND KEEP
PICKING THINGS OUT OF THE GARDEN. ME AND MY BROTHER GOT VERY
SCARED AND RAN TOWARDS THE HOUSE. RIGHT BEFORE WE GOT IN THE
HOUSE, WE LOOKED BACK, BUT THE MAN WAS GONE. WE RAN IN OUR HOUSE
AND TOLD OUR MOM AND DAD WHAT WE SAW. WHEN WE DESCRIBED WHAT THE MAN
LOOKED LIKE, THEY SAID THAT IT SOUNDED LIKE THE MAN WHO USED TO
TO LIVE THERE. THEY SAID THAT HE USED TO KEEP A GARDEN RIGHT WHERE
WE KEPT OURS. THEY SAID THAT HE HAD DIED IN OUR HOUSE MANY YEARS
AGO.
