I live down the road from a cemetery which is sort of my safe haven.
I go there on a regular basis at nighttime to read, write in my journal and/or listen to music and relax in the quiet, tranquil atmosphere.
Reddit browsing on my phone is another possible activity. Sure, it may seem weird but it's a place where I can truly relax like no other.
Three days ago, I was at the cemetery. A typical night; it's warm, the air is breezy and I'm relaxing in a spot between two rows of graves listening to music.
I'm wearing all dark clothes in a rather dark section of the cemetery so I am pretty well camouflaged in the darkness.
I take my earbuds out for a few minutes and am lying down looking at the stars.
Five minutes goes by. I then hear two men (or teenagers) talking rather loudly down the road in front of the cemetery. I sat up and looked in their direction.
One of them walks towards the next road while the other one comes through the cemetery. Behind the cemetery are a couple of houses so he probably lives in one of them.
I got up and quickly ducked behind a headstone. I didn't want to surprise or scare him so I planned on not being noticed.
Unfortunately, the guy suddenly turns on his phone's flashlight and was looking at some of the graves. If he looks in my direction, he'll probably notice me.
He did. He turned his flashlight in my direction and shined it on me. Crap. I didn't know what to say. I looked at him and he looked at me. He looked shocked.
He shouted "Whoa, man, what the fuck are you doing here?" I didn't reply. I was still rather surprised that he saw me.
He looked at me wide-eyed before he continued walking towards the houses behind the cemetery.
I looked in his direction and noticed that he was looking behind his shoulder, probably hoping that I wasn't following him or something.
I left the cemetery immediately after he was out of sight and went home.
