The Grave of Marie Nikum Hill
One day I decided to take a bus and go wherever. The bus stopped in front Of a cemetery nearby, so I just got off there.
While I was walking to the cemetery I saw a black cat. Well, I will tell you, I am a huge cat lover. So, of course, I stopped to pet the cat on the head. The cat Seemed To be enjoying the attention so I continued for a few more seconds, then I was On my way.
I finally made it to the cemetery at around 4:00 in the afternoon. It was pretty dark but I have always felt at peace at night.
While walking in there, one grave soon caught my attention.
Marie Nikum Hill 1948-1970 Loving Daughter, Sister, Friend Never A Wife.
She never got A chance to make a life.
Next to her grave was a dead tree and on top Of that was a black cat looking down on me.
I was tempted to pet it like the other cat until I noticed that it looked exactly like the first black cat. I was fine with it, cats are fast so I did not think much of it.
It was getting later and darker, nearly 5:00, the time when they close the cemetery. As a Pagan, I know how unpleasant it would be to get locked in a cemetery over night. So I started towards the exit.
Once outside I walked by a nice house with a black cat sitting on the porch.
By then I was thinking "Man, there sure are a lot of black cats around here."
At the moment, I thought Of that as ironic.
I chuckled as I passed the next house. There sitting in the same position, same spot, but on a different porch was a black cat!
I was beginning o feel afraid, there was a black cat Stalking me!
I began walking fast, and faster, and there ahead of me, just calmly lying on the ground was the black cat.
I ran across the street and walked quickly to the bus stop, where the bus came 5 minutes later.
I was scared, I truly believed and still believe that I had disturbed Marie's Grave. Since that day I have not gone back to the cemetery. I should have known better as a pagan, if you have no business in a cemetery, never go! I learned that the hard way.
I still have nightmares
