Dark Secrets

My name's Hope and I'm dead... Well, I'm supposed to be. I woke up buried and in a cemetery and to make matters worse it looks like I have a personal stalker as well who may be my only chance at answers. Let's just hope he doesn't kill me while we're at it.


1. Chapter 1

When I opened my eyes all I saw was darkness. I took a deep breath, the air was musty and smelled like dirt. I went to stretch, but almost immediately my hand hit something hard that felt like velvet. I felt around me and realized there were walls around me. Me being claustrophobic I started to panic and bang and push on the top of the box.

After countless tries it finally swung open. Fear stricken, I slowly climbed out of the box as soon as I got out what I saw scared and confused me.  I was in a cemetery!

Fear consumed me as I looked at the gravestone right where I climbed out of. It read;

                                                                  Hope Elizabeth May

                                                               02/17/99 - 10/04/14


                                                                      We will miss you

"W-why is my name on there?" I say, backing up and almost falling into the hole. I steadied myself and heard a loud rustling behind me.

I spun around, "W-who's there?" I stutter but there was no reply. Just more rustling. "I said who's there?" Still, there was nothing.

Now the rustling was circling around me at an almost inhuman speed. My heart was racing, I knew it was impossible for any animal to run that fast. I worked up the courage and screamed at the top of my lungs, "Who's there?"

A long silence came before a hooded figure, eyes glowing, emerged from behind the trees. "Tsk, tsk, tsk, looks like you still have those anger issues, I see." The man said.

"Who are you? I don't have anger issues!"

"Always have been a bad liar. But that's not relevant."

"Not relevant? I'm talking to a complete stranger, who I know nothing about, yet he knows everything about me!" I yell, anger causing my voice to rise.

"You will know soon enough. But, what I can tell you, is that you are supposed to be dead. But clearly, you're not," he waved his hand up and down.

"Supposed to be? What's that supposed to mean? I'm pretty sure my parents wouldn't bury me alive." I said, scoffing. 

"Well, no. But they would if they thought you were dead." The man told me. 

"Yeah, because people mistake the living for the dead." I scoffed again. This man wasn't making any sense.

"You have a special exception." A scary smile lit up his face. 

"What do you mean special exception?" I asked. 

"I think that's enough information for one day." 

"No. I want ans-"

"Hush child you will soon figure everything out." And with that, he disappeared.
