trick or treat bag without me seeing him that night?” He turned to me with a serious look asked “what key are you talking about?”.
My friends and I went back to the graveyard one more time after that and of course, in the day time!. The key was gone, the gate once again locked and the graves appeared undisturbed. Over thirty years have passed since that night and all of us have since moved far away. Every Halloween the memories return of that unexplainable night and we can only hope that the key does not show up in a trick or treat bag again and that the graveyard’s occupants will forever remain together and remain peacefully asleep.
