This happened in a town where I was living with my parents when I was 19, its in Africa, the country Namibia.
Well me and my friends wanted to play a joke on two of our friends which were girls, so we decided to take them to the graveyard in the night time. It was in the month of October, so we all got together and headed out. The graveyard was about one kilometer out of town in the desert. It was abandoned because of ‘safety reasons’ which we never found out. It was a dark and misty night, when we got near the graveyard wind started to pick up which was strange because this time of night wind does not pick up until 5:00 pm and never in my nine years in this town did the wind came up this early. The time was 23:50 when we got to the graveyard, then the wind dropped and everything started to feel cold. Me and my friend started to get second thoughts but decided it was our imagination, the girls were freaked out and clung for life on our arms.
We entered the graveyard and peeked around, a grave caught my eye and I walked to it. My friends followed and everybody was a little bit more relaxed but jumpy. I stood in front of the grave and realized I had never seen a grave like this before. It was a metal grave, it had a big metal sheet and black metal chains around it, and a metal head stone which had the name ‘DAMIEN’. Tthat was all that was on the headstone, it freaked me out. I told my friend to look and he said it was probably someone who wanted to be anonymous. I looked down on the grave and saw a hole in the metal sheet, suddenly I got real dizzy, and heard a buzzing sound in my ear, then the voices of my friend which was in a near distance in my ears, then my friend grabbed my arm and I shook. He asked if I’m okay, I said yes, I just got dizzy. I got my phone out of my pocket and saw it was 00:00. I said to my friends we have to get going, its late and cold.
As we walked I got this warm feeling in my chest as if I took a breath of fire. I grabbed my chest and continued walking, then suddenly a burst of wind hit for a second. The girls were freaked out and were yelling. We started walking faster, eventually we entered town and we walked to the cricket field where we always hang out. We were talking about the wind which was weird. About ten minutes later I got really dizzy, and the chest pains started.
The next thing I remember I woke up in bed the next morning with a big headache, my mind blank. All I remember is the graveyard and the time we were hanging out at the cricket field. I rang my friend on my phone and we met. I asked her about last night at the cricket field and she said I was normal but distant. She said we walked to her house and a woman heard us talking in the street and told us to keep it down its 1:00 am in the night. My friend told me I bad mouthed the woman, and that is something I’ll never do. We continued to my friends house, and started talking about stuff, then she said I was looking at this white wall and whispered something. She said I took my fingers and pushed it against the wall, and started climbing the wall with my fingers, a flat smooth wall, all my friends thought I was joking around. My friend went into her house and I and the rest stood outside. Then suddenly I started yelling “something is chasing me” and ran all the way home which was 5 km across town. They were searching for me and saw me in front of my home on the grass in eight minutes time from my friends house. They say I was whispering ‘something is chasing me’, they took me in and put me in bed, luckily my parents were sleeping. That’s what my friend told me, which was way freaked and that’s all that I remember. Can somebody explain what happened, and why did I miss four hours of my life?
