One time a man was building a house and he could not get enough stones to finish it. There happened to be an old graveyard near his house and he took the stones that was around it to finish his house. One night when he was in bed he felt a hand going around the bed and he could hear a noise like as if the house was falling and he could hear a voice saying " you stole my wall". The man didn't live long after that.
