  1. I was at the park in late November 2012, I was 13. I remember because I was at my grandfather’s for Thanksgiving. There’s a parking area in which my mother and her (ex)boyfriend parked, it had a patch of grass. The kind that was surrounded by cement. We just went for a drive so I brought no coat, but the thermostat on my mother’s dash read about 40 degrees Fahrenheit. I stayed in the car to stay warm. Then, I started to look around, quite a bit, and saw people in black cloaks. Being the curious person I am, I got out of the car. With goosebumps covering my body, I walked towards where I saw the cloaked figures. I stepped off the pavement and glanced around. There was nothing in sight. So, I leaned up against a large tree. I smirked and stated I was going crazy. Then, the figures in black cloaks appeared in front of me. I was frightened, calm, but I said nothing. At this point, I could not move, as if I was bound to this very tree. My feet were hot and in excruciating pain. It felt like I was set on fire. The heat seemed to work up my body. I smelled smoke and burning flesh, my flesh. I started to cry because I hurt so bad. The cloaked figures snickered and looked towards the branches. I looked up to see about 3 bodies dangling from the neck. Their faces looked pale like snow, but the flesh around the rope was red as hell. I quickly looked down, and sobbed. After I let out a quiet scream, the cloaked figures were gone, and pressure was released from my body. I fell to my knees, wiped my tears, then slowly walked away. Something whispered to me, “Confess your sins.” I turned around to look at the tree. I gasped because there was a pentacle next to where I saw people hanging. It was written in blood. I had never been to Lewis & Clark Park before, but I knew what the tree was used for many years ago. I scrambled to the car. When I got inside I told my mom “Witches were killed on that tree. A voice also told me to confess my sins.” My mother told me whatever it was probably sensed my great-great-grandmother. For she, was a witch.
