This happened two years ago. My mom and I were at my grandma's house for the summer. Every time I went there I visited a friend I had made over the past few times I had been there. On the 15th of April, my mom and grams were planning on relaxing. I (as usual) was going to my friend's house. To reach her house I had to cross a cremation yard. On the way (right before crossing the cremation yard) I met my grandma's neighbor Mrs. Jenkins. She was an old lady who lived next door. She looked tired. (like stay-up-all-night tired)
She asked me in an emotionless tone, "Where are you going?" I answered, "I'm going to my friend's house Mrs. Jenkins."
She said, "Well, someone is being cremated over there (she pointed toward the cremation yard, where some people were gathered at a distance) so come after an hour or two." I obeyed immediately and went away (I mean who wants to see somebody being cremated, right?).
When I reached my house, my mother saw me come home, and she must've been suspicious because I came back so quickly and so she inquired, "Why did you come back so early?"
I said, "I ran into Mrs. Jenkins from next door on the way. She told me that there was someone being cremated, so I came back."
My mother had a shocked, fainting-like expression on her face.
She was stammering as she said, "Impossible! Mrs. Jenkins passed away in her sleep last night. And her cremation is supposed to be taking place right now. I was about to leave for that when you came."
As soon as I heard her say that, I had the same expression as mom before I collapsed.
That's it. Thank you for reading. I want to know that why she appeared in front of me and tell me to come later (because SHE was being cremated?)? Please tell me what you think.
