This is a Halloween story with some paranormal activity. A big 'Thank You' to WanderingScot for taking the time to edit my story and make it a much better read.
This story starts out like many we have read before. I was out in the garage and my wife Alice was in the house. The phone rings and we both pick up the receiver at the same time. Before I can say hello, Alice speaks and it's her girlfriend Marsha.
Usually I would hang up but for some reason I decided to listen for a few seconds. "Can you talk or is Allen near you?" asked Marsha.
"No, I can talk. Allen is outside or in the garage. He's always busy doing something," remarked Alice.
I was about to hang up until I heard the next statement from Marsha. "So, how did it go with Chuck?"
Now that perked up my interest. Alice and Chuck did something together? I was away yesterday so I wondered what might have happened. Chuck was married to Cheryl. Alice and Cheryl were long time friends; we've all been friends for a few months now.
"I fucked him!" said Alice. His wife went away for the day with her mother and we fucked in his bed. I think he's in love with me."
"What? You're kidding. I thought he was just another boy toy for you to play with for a few months?" said Marsha.
"He is, but I wish he wouldn't get so serious. He's a good pussy eater and he has a good size cock but I'm not in love with him. I'm thinking of calling it off with him, he's good but I'm not in love with him. I have a pretty good life here with Allen.
"I can go where I want, do what I want, and pretty much fuck around on him. He thinks I'm the wonderful housewife and that I am always here for him. We've been married three years and he doesn't have a clue about me cheating on him. Besides, he's a damn good lover."
"Then why do you cheat on him? Ever since you've been married you've had boy toys," asked Marsha.
"I guess it's because I can and I enjoy it. I better get off the phone, I have to finish dinner. I'm the happy homemaker you know," said Alice and then laughed.
Her infidelity wasn't a surprise. I heard that she was quite a party girl in college. I had hoped she might have grown out of it but I guess not.
I'm forty-two and she is only twenty-seven. She is wife number three. The neighborhood we moved into last year is full of yuppies, most in their late twenties and early thirties. All in all they are a fun group of neighbors. We have a lot of parties and cookouts. We're always celebrating the holidays.
The following night we were supposed to get together with three other couples and go out for a Halloween dinner and drinks and then go over to the cemetery and sit around and drink beer. I do it most every year but we usually have different couples with us. It's fun listening to the Halloween stories, usually horror stories. The party usually ends up with all the couples taking an infidelity test, which I will explain later.
When I walked into the kitchen Alice was at the counter, finishing making dinner. I walked up behind her and put my arms around her and unbuttoned her shorts and slid my hand down into her panties.
"Allen, stop it! I'm trying to make dinner," said Alice.
I didn't pay any attention to her as I slipped a finger into her pussy. It never took much to get her wet. She finally gave up and leaned on the counter as I pulled down her shorts and panties. I wasn't long in pulling out my cock and pushing it into her waiting pussy. Damn, I was going to miss her.
She rotated her ass while I plunged into her. I felt her pussy lips tighten up around my cock as I shot a load into her. She grabbed a couple of tissues and put them between her legs and headed for the bathroom. I put myself together went into the half-bath and washed my hands. I went back into the kitchen and finished making our salads. Alice came in with a robe on.
"What got you so worked up?" asked Alice.
"Just thinking about you and it got hard. Had to do something with it," I laughed.
As we ate I asked her if she talked to the other three couples about going out the following night. She said that she had talked to all but Cheryl and Chuck. She would call them after dinner. I had to wonder why she didn't ask him while she was fucking him just the day before.
I went back out to the garage and she cleaned up the dishes from dinner. I heard the phone ring and waited till she picked up the receiver before picking up the extension. It was Chuck.
"Why are you calling here? I told you not to, what if Allen becomes suspicious. Do you want to ruin a good thing?" asked Alice.
"Cheryl asked me to call you and let you know that we will be going tomorrow. Damn, I wish I could be with you instead of Cheryl," replied Chuck.
"Chuck, you have to back off a little..."
"But I love you!" said Chuck.
"Chuck I like you an awful lot too but for now we just have to be careful. I'll let Allen know you and Cheryl are going tomorrow. Beth and Ben, Darla and David have verified they will be going too. It should be a lot of fun." remarked Alice.
"Anytime I'm around you is a fun time for me," replied Chuck. "What's this infidelity test that Allen said you guys do every year?"
"Oh, it's nothing. It's a little creepy but I do it to humor Allen. I really think he believes it works but I know better. You can take my word for it."
"I'm a little superstitious so it bothers me, especially since I've been with you. There's no way I could pass a lie detector test," replied Chuck.
"Don't worry, it's just a silly game. If you're good maybe we can sneak to the back of the cemetery and I'll let you finger me and just maybe I'll even give you a blowjob." I heard Alice laugh and I do have to say it pissed me off.
"I can't wait. We'll see you tomorrow," said Chuck.
Again I waited till both phones were hung up before hanging up mine. I walked in the house and asked Alice if someone called?
"Yeah, Cheryl and Chuck said they were going. So everyone is accounted for." She didn't even mention it was Chuck she talked to but it didn't make any difference anymore.
The next evening which was Halloween Eve, the eight of us headed out to a nice restaurant. We began with drinks. Two of the women, Beth and Darla, decided they would be the designated drivers and would limit themselves to two drinks. The rest of us were getting rather plastered. Thank God the food came and helped us sober up some.
We were all talking about Halloween traditions that we all had when we were younger. Trick or treating seemed to be the biggest. Others had said they attended a lot of costume parties. Someone suggested we do that next year.
"Well, it's time for my annual tradition," I said. "Is everyone ready to head over to the cemetery and tell their spookiest story and then take the fidelity test?"
Everyone seemed up for it except Chuck. He was a bit reluctant but Cheryl told him to stop being a wuss unless he had something to hide. I saw him look over at Alice but she quickly turned away. I'm not sure if the others had seen it or not.
We got in our cars and headed to the cemetery. I mentioned for them to park way in the back near the big mausoleum. That's where our testing would be done. When we got out of the cars everyone had a flashlight. I had reminded all of them to bring one.
Chuck asked me if I came here every year. I told him Alice and I had for the last three years. I had lived in Michigan for a number of years so of course those years I didn't visit the cemetery. I did let everyone know that while I was growing up we came to the cemetery every year till I had moved away.
"Is it alright if I take a walk around and look at some of the grave markers?" asked Chuck.
"Sure, that's what we're here for. This is the oldest part of the cemetery. Let's say we all meet back here in say, twenty minutes," I remarked.
Chuck asked Cheryl if she wanted to go and she said she just wanted to sit and relax, she was leaning up against an old grave marker. Alice offered to go with him. What a surprise. A blowjob and finger fuck would be on its way.
Beth and Ben headed out in another direction. I know Ben had told me earlier that a cemetery was one of the few places they hadn't had sex. That would be corrected tonight.
Darla and Dave just looked around a little at some of the grave markers where we were resting. I got the beer and wine out of the car while waiting for everyone to return. The four of us started drinking. I guess Darla forgot she was one of the designated drivers the way she was putting down the wine. Cheryl was starting to slur her words some.
Ben and Beth came back first. The smile on Ben's face told the story, 'Mission Accomplished'. "Damn", said Beth, "those marble stones are cold on the ass." She couldn't help but laugh after saying that.
Chuck and Alice came back and Alice quickly took a beer. She must have had a strange taste to get out of her mouth. Chuck just took a beer and sat down. He kept rather quiet.
We began telling stories. Dave was telling us about the movie 'Night of the Living Dead' when we heard a noise and saw someone coming towards us. Cheryl screamed out. I started laughing. It was just some teenagers roaming through the cemetery. I think Cheryl scared them.
The stories were all pretty cool. Everyone seemed a bit nervous and drunk when it was my turn.
"You will now be entering the Mausoleum and crypt of my family. Inside you will see many crypts where my family members have been put to rest since the late eighteen hundreds. You will also see the marble slab that has taken the life of many who have been unfaithful to their spouses or lovers."
I tried to say it in a very scary voice. It must have worked because everyone seemed nervous except for Alice. She's been here the past three years. I reached under a boulder where the key to the mausoleum was kept and opened the door. There was a very creaky noise as the door opened.
"Turn on your flashlights and follow me," I said in my best Boris Karloff voice.
Most everyone was hesitant but went into the Mausoleum. "My God, this place is huge," said Dave.
" ... and creepy," replied Ben.
"There are three chambers, each chamber can hold over forty remains. Right now I think there are eighty family members and that's including their spouses and offspring buried here."
"Are there lights in here," asked Cheryl.
"Yes, but we would have to go to the outside pole to turn on the power. That's why we have our flashlights." There was some moonlight shining in through the windows high near the top of the walls. But, it was a very dark and cloudy night.
"We need to go to the back where you see the marble slab. That is the infidelity test table. I'll explain what happens when we are all there. I'll even go first."
I tried my best to tell a spooky story how every year on Halloween Eve how all the married couples would take the test.
First you would lie down on your back on the marble slab.
Next you would say something like, 'I have been faithful to my love this year'.
A light would shine down on you and the slab would vibrate.
After it stopped you would be deemed faithful.
"What if a person was unfaithful?" asked Chuck.
"The lights would go out and the body would disappear," I told the group.
Dave spoke, "I heard the myth years ago that the body would show up on the birth date of the person who disappeared in the 'Pond of Souls'. Do you know anything about that or is it just one of the fabled stories."
"I've heard that also," I told Dave. I really don't know but I believe it to be true. Many of my ancestors were recovered from the 'Pond of Souls'. So anyone who has cheated on their spouse may not want to take this test." I tried to give a very scary laugh.
I looked at each person there and took a few extra seconds looking at Alice who was smiling and Chuck who looked scared.
"I'll go first," I said as I lay down on the marble stone. Everyone had their flashlights shining on me.
"I have been faithful to my wife Alice. Not only this year, but ever since we were wed."
A bright light shown down on me and the table vibrated. A couple of the girls screamed. The table stopped and the light went out. I then got off of the table.
"That was scary," said Cheryl.
"You go next Cheryl," I smiled at her. "There's nothing to it. Oh, I should remind everyone that once you lie on the marble slab a magnetic force or something holds you there till the test is finished."
Cheryl was nervous but looked over at Alice who was smiling. She knew Alice had done this the last three years and she seemed fine with it.
Cheryl lay on the slab and said, "I Cheryl have been faithful to my husband Chuck this year." The light shone down and the table vibrated. When it stopped Cheryl got off the table.
"That was scary. I couldn't move - the force held me down. I was wondering if the power to the lights are off, how come that big light above the slab comes on and shines down?"
"I don't know. Maybe it is God or something reading your thoughts or heart. I really don't know. The same goes for the vibration of the marble slab," I told Cheryl.
Everyone but Chuck and Alice had been on the testing table. "Ok Chuck, it's your turn," said Cheryl.
"No, I'm not going to do it. I'm too superstitious. I won't do it, you can't make me do it," said Chuck.
"So, that means you've been cheating on me," said Cheryl. "Who is it? Who's the slut you've been sleeping with?"
Chuck didn't say a word but he looked over and stared at Alice. She looked like she was a deer caught in the headlights of an oncoming vehicle. She began to look scared as everyone looked at her.
"I'll take the damned test," said Alice as she quickly got on the table. "I Alice have not cheated on my husband Allen."
The lights shown down and the table vibrated. All of a sudden there was a sound like thunder and the light went off and so did all of our flashlights. There was screaming, we were in total darkness. Then, all of a sudden the flashlights came back on but there was no Alice.
She wasn't on the table and everyone went around the different chambers looking for her. The door hadn't been opened. "Where is she!" cried Chuck. "What did you do with her?" He asked me.
I tried to look totally shocked. "You mother fucker," I said looking at Chuck. "You had an affair with her and still let her take that test. You killed her," I screamed.
I grabbed Chuck and threw him against the wall and hit him twice before the other guys grabbed me. Someone opened the door and we all went outside.
Darla tried calling the police but couldn't get service on her cell phone. Everybody was talking at once but no one making a whole lot of sense. Dave and Ben went back in and looked around again hoping that Alice was playing a prank.
Chuck sat there crying and Cheryl was calling him every name in the foul language book. We all looked around for about fifteen minutes.
"Where is this 'Pond of Souls?" Dave asked.
"It's about a hundred yards back behind the Mausoleum. There is a hundred foot drop and goes over the cliff and down into the lake. The place they call the pond is blocked off from the main lake. There is no way she could have gone there. It's too far away and much too dangerous."
"We have to head back to the city and notify the police. Alice is definitely missing," Darla reminded us.
Everyone agreed. I rode with Darla and Dave. Cheryl came with us. She didn't want anything to do with her husband, Chuck.
Beth and Ben took Chuck with them. We had another problem. Everyone had drunk too much and was afraid of getting picked up for driving under the influence. As soon as we got phone reception Darla called the police station. It was now after one in the morning.
The police said they really didn't believe her and besides they couldn't file a missing persons report for twenty-four hours. It being Halloween didn't help matters much. They suggested we call back in the morning after we sobered up. I guess they could tell Darla was drinking.
We decided to all go home and Ben and Dave would go with me first thing in the morning to the police station and file a report. Cheryl went home with Beth and Ben. She wanted nothing to do with Chuck.
The next morning we went to the police station and filed the report. We told them the full story from the time we arrived at the cemetery. The officer told us he would send out a squad car to check the premises and see if they could find out anything. He said Alice might just be playing a prank on us and may be home when I got there.
I tried to act broken up during this whole time. I guess I did a pretty good job since no one really questioned me about my feelings.
