Peter, John and Rose brought with them some tools to explore a cave in the cemetery. As they slowly walked deeper into the cave, it was getting darker and cooler inside. Rose was getting uneasy and asked Peter, “Why don’t you switch on your torch”. “Oh yeah” replied Peter.

When he switched on the torchlight they found a huge gray object appeared right in front of them. They were astonished and frightened. John went up and carefully examined the object he said, “It’s a stone casket”. “Why don’t we see what’s inside.” Everyone agreed.

Peter and John used crowbars to force open the stone cover while Rose, using all her might to push the cover to the side and suddenly it slipped and fall on the floor with a loud “BANG!”

All of them got a rude shock and took a few steps backward. The three of them slowly and quietly walked back to the casket. Peter who was holding the torch shone it against the internal of the casket. All of them nearly fell on the ground because a preserved corpse was found inside the casket. They saw plenty of jewelry and even exotic painting buried with the corpse.

While they were examined the contents, Rose felt a jolt on the ground and realized something was not right. She shouted, “SCRAM!” she was the first one to rush the exit followed by Peter. John was the last one and before he reached the exit, it was completely sealed by falling rock and was trapped.

What suddenly occurred was too much for John to handle and he said to himself that he was going to die there. He knelt down and solemnly prayed to the deceased that if he ever got out of the cave alive, he would keep this place secret, never returned to disturb it and promised to offer thanksgiving to the spirit.

After a while, he saw a glowworm flew out from the coffin towards the opposite direction of the blocked exit. About some distance away he saw some dim light coming from the end of the cave. He immediately removed some rocks and to his surprised it was another exit. The dim light was moonlight outside the cave.

He knelt again to thank the spirit.
