Paragraph 5 - The Third Spirit

Scrooge slowly moved into the light, but he could not see who the dark figure was. The figure slowly drifted forwards. It was The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come, and he led Scrooge through a sequence of mysterious scenes. They quickly arrived in a graveyard. Scrooge saw two businessmen discussing the dead man’s riches, but Scrooge couldn’t hear what they were talking about.  A second couple were expressing relief at the death of the man. Scrooge was anxious to learn the lesson the last spirit is teaching him. He begged to know the name of the dead man, but was shocked as The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come pointed to the head stone. Scrooge hesitantly moved to read the headstone. Scrooge could clearly see it was his own name. Scrooge was mortified, but quickly realized he needed to change his behavior. He told the spirit that he will honor Christmas with all his heart.
