Something Unexpected

Another mystery in just 99 words….

The gently undulating banks of neatly trimmed grass in the unused churchyard were easy to keep pristine. However, the only part time gardener was surprised one morning to find a flat headstone stone exposed in his carpet of green; it hadn’t been there the week before. Obviously very old, the name was indecipherable.

The following week another one even more worn. Enquiries at the office drew a blank as did the CCTV.

He nervously rolled out the mower the next time only to have the engine splutter and die; another addition.

Even from a distance the hole loomed darkly.
