What’s in a name ….

Prompt –

Finish the story that begins with:  “The cemetery spread along the area known as Devils Abode.”

The cemetery spread along the area known as Devils Abode though there is no cemetery and no devil. It is just a notorious slum.

Devils abode got its name from the many illilicit activities like manufacture and sale of illegal drugs and counterfeit goods; human trafficking, arms trafficking, counterfeiting currency, etc. However, this was a product of social transition and lopsided development. The migrants from nearby areas settled here and learned to survive as they could.

The interesting part is the cemetery where no remnants of humans long dead could be found. It was excavated by a group of archeologist but not even a shard of human-bone was found. Later a paleontologist invaded the site and found fossilized skeletons and a skull that did not match any known earthly species.

An astro-biologist has recently postulated that it was the burial gound for aliens from one of the recently discovered earth like heavenly bodies.
