Here’s a short excerpt from my fan-fiction story, “Two Souls: Into the Fire”.

***

Ghost was having a nightmare, and sits up in bed, shrieking…

“Graves, everywhere! Graves in the mountains, in the fields, in the woods…graves in the ocean!”

…Then later, Steve questions him about it…

“Yeah, you sat right up and started hollering about graves being everywhere.”

“Oh, that was it. I remember, now. I didn’t know I was talking in my sleep…”

“You weren’t talking, you were yelling really loud.”

Ghost sighed, “Well what I was dreaming was how many graves there are…all around us. We’re sorta surrounded by them…every city, town..there’s a cemetery…big ones, little ones, and sometimes just abandonded ones on the side of the road – no town left at all…just the dead in their graves.”

“Abandoned,” Steve said.

“Yeah, that’s what I said,” said Ghost, “abandonded, abandondead, dead people.” He looked at Steve and grinned. He knew he’d just creeped Steve out.

This is the grave and marker for the well-known singer, Buddy Holly (Holley), who was from our hometown. It is located in our city cemetery, and is visited by people all over the world, some of who leave mementos of guitar picks on the headstone.

The USS ARIZONA MEMORIAL, in Pearl Harbor, is another type of graveyard. After the ship was sunk, the bodies of 1,102 crew members were left underwater with the wreckage, which is still there today…a war grave. We visited this somber memorial many years ago.
