Army of the Walking Dead

A myth submitted to the site by Radina Yotova

Bourgas, Bulgaria

The six-year-old Jamie, newly moved to Rosewood with his parents, two years after the Civil War, found himself awakened each night as the clock stroke twelve by the rattle of heavy wheels passing on the street. It was a mystery, because the Simpsons were living on a dead end street so there was no rational explanation for the noise. Jamie's parents would not allow him to look out the window when he heard the sounds.

One day, he asked his uncle and he willingly explained: "What you are hearing is the Army of the Dead. They were brave men,soldiers in their early twenties, who died fighting for their ideals. Each night they rise from their graves and go fight. Others visit their families because they didn't have the opportunity to say goodbye. They are lost souls who cannot find peace."

Jamie was a smart boy, so the next night he got up from his bed quietly and watched the army of the dead passing. It was foggy. He could see the shapes of horses, and could hear human voices and the canons being dragged through the street, followed by the sound of marching feet. Just like in the actual war, except everyone were already dead.

The boy stood still by the window watching them passing by. All of a sudden, silence occured. Jamie was standing there, paralyzed and scared.

After that happening, it took the little boy one year to look out the window again, especially late at night.
