The Dead and Dying

Formerly, I passed by an old house that had been abandoned 20 years back. Most people said there were ghosts in the house, but I believed in no such foolish beliefs. I was only 15, but I had matured enough to go out in the dark alone and I was considered one of the bravest kids in Gemstown, New Jersey. My friend, Tom, once dared me to go into the abandoned house at 11:30 in the night.

I remember it clearly, it was Saturday night and Tom and I went to the abandoned house with some other friends. At precisely 11:25 pm I left my friends in the garden of the house and entered the house through the front door. The door creaked shut once I was inside and I started to feel a little bit scared.

Then I saw by the fire place a rocking chair which was moving slightly forward and backward. I moved closer towards it and I saw an old man sitting on the chair wear off-white clothes which had been burnt from ever corner possible. I could see fire burns on his face and arms.

I looked for his legs, but they were no where to be seen. I was terrified and I turned to run. Then the voice came.

…Man: Come here son…

.Me: Ahh…Are you a g.

..gg…ghost?Man: I guess you can say that. But please be seated so I can introduce myself.

A chair appeared beside him. I went over and sat in the chair.Man: My name is Phillip Morgan. I believe you have heard about the brand of cigarettes called Marlboro. I was the inventor of them.

I pulled out the Marlboro pack that I had hidden in my underpants and showed it to him.Phillip: Oh…So you smoke, my son?Me: Ahh…Yes.

..I only started a few weeks ago. But I like this brand the best because they taste the best. Do you want one?Phillip: Sure why not…don’t worry I have the lighter.

Me: So where have you come from…you look like you have been burned. Don’t mind me asking, but have you been in hell?Phillip: Yes my son.Me: But why?Phillip: Well you see, when I was alive I committed several sins.

All of which I repent right now. For example I wronged my friends, family, and several others.Me: Have you not done any good?Phillip: Of course I have. Smoking would not have started if it were not for Marlboro.Me: How is it when you are dying and when you are dead?Phillip: Well, that is a might good question son.

Dying has no pain what so ever. You leave your body on earth and travel the skies with angels. It is a very wonderful experience! But when it comes to the decision of hell or heaven, that is all determined by what you have done one earth. I was unfortunate to have wronged myself on earth and I have spent 10 years of my afterlife so far in hell.

Believe me it is a very dreadful place to ever go to. I am warning you my son, be good to you family, friends, and others. You do not ever want to go to hell.Me: So what are doing here today?Phillip: Today is our day off. Hell is cleaned and warmed up every Saturday. Well, I guess its time for me to be off.

I have sector 598 in hell to clean up. I will meet you next Saturday then ok?Me: Sure thing Mr. Morgan.

Goodbye.He vanished in to the air and I walked back with another Marlboro in my mouth. I still ponder on how it had gotten lit when I had no lighter….
