The Vengeful Ghost of the Forgotten Funeral

The ghost terrorizes people who did not attend the funeral in village

By Vivekananthan VellaichamyPublished about a year ago 4 min read

In the small village of Millfield, a funeral was held for the town's beloved elder, Mr. Thompson. The funeral was attended by many, but there were a handful of people who didn't attend, much to the disappointment of Mr. Thompson's family. Little did they know that their absence would soon come back to haunt them.

Rumors began to spread around the village that those who didn't attend the funeral were being visited by a vengeful ghost. It started with small incidents, such as objects moving on their own and doors slamming shut. But soon, it escalated into something much more sinister.

People reported seeing a ghostly figure lurking in the shadows, watching their every move. Others claimed to hear the sounds of Mr. Thompson's voice, whispering their name in the dead of night. The village was consumed by fear and paranoia as they tried to uncover the truth behind the ghostly presence.

One night, a group of friends decided to investigate the strange occurrences. They gathered in one of their homes, armed with candles and a Ouija board.

As they began to ask questions, the board spelled out a chilling message: "I am Mr. Thompson, and I seek revenge for those who did not attend my funeral."

The group was terrified, but they continued to ask questions. The board revealed that Mr. Thompson's family had been cursed, and that his spirit was unable to rest until they were avenged. The group was determined to lift the curse and put Mr. Thompson's spirit to rest.

They sought the help of a local psychic, who agreed to perform a séance. As they gathered around the table, the psychic channeled Mr. Thompson's spirit. He revealed that the curse could only be lifted if the family was forgiven for their absence at the funeral.

The group relayed this message to the family, who were shocked and apologetic. They begged for forgiveness and held a special ceremony to honor Mr. Thompson's memory. As they did, the ghostly presence disappeared, and the village was finally at peace.

Days passed. Many have completely forgotten that incident. As the days went by, the problem started to crop up again.

Despite the resolution of the curse, there were some in the village who couldn't shake off the feeling of unease. They wondered if Mr. Thompson's ghost was truly at peace or if there was something else lurking in the shadows.

One of those individuals was a young woman named Emily. She had never met Mr. Thompson, but she felt drawn to the mysterious presence that seemed to haunt the village. She had heard the rumors of the vengeful ghost and wanted to uncover the truth for herself.

One night, as she walked home from her job at the local diner, she heard a faint whisper on the wind. It sounded like Mr. Thompson's voice, calling out to her. She followed the voice, walking deeper into the heart of the village.

As she turned a corner, she saw a figure standing in the middle of the road. It was a man, but his features were obscured by the darkness. She felt a shiver run down her spine as he beckoned her closer.

She hesitated, but something drew her forward. As she got closer, she saw that the man was dressed in a suit and tie, just like Mr. Thompson had been in the photo on his funeral program.

"Who are you?" Emily asked, her voice trembling.

The man didn't answer, but instead gestured for her to follow him. Emily felt a chill run down her spine as she followed the man deeper into the village.

They arrived at a small cemetery on the outskirts of town. The man stopped in front of a gravestone and pointed to it.

"Forgive me," he whispered before disappearing into the night.

Emily looked down at the gravestone and saw that it belonged to Mr. Thompson's son, who had died many years ago. She realized that the curse wasn't just about those who didn't attend the funeral, but also those who had forgotten about Mr. Thompson's son.

Emily felt a sense of sadness wash over her as she realized the extent of the curse. She knew that it was up to her to spread the word and make sure that Mr. Thompson and his son were never forgotten again.

Years went by, and Emily grew old. She never forgot the ghostly encounter and made sure that the village never forgot about Mr. Thompson and his son. She passed on the stories to her children and grandchildren, ensuring that their memories would never be lost to time.

And on quiet nights, some say that you can still hear the whispers of Mr. Thompson's ghost, reminding people to never forget the importance of honoring the dead and the power of forgiveness.
