Rainbow Snippets

I’ll be in and out this weekend so I might be slow to comment. I’m trying to get some of the jewelry making I have waiting on me done. It’s insane the sheer amount of beads and crap I have so I’m going to a crafting party because I obviously need supervision in order for me to finish things.

I’m continuing with These Haunted Hills from Joshua’s point of view where we learn key things about Brendan I didn’t have in Brendan’s point of view (but explain why Brendan is so depressed). I’m ahead of myself with the picture. They’ll be heading here, the Ridges, the Athens Lunatic Asylum (the original name). It’s a beautiful, very haunted asylum that originally wanted to be a a nurturing place to help the mentally ill (but you can guess that’s not what ended up happening). It’s now the art gallery for Ohio University. There’s a crap ton on the hauntings online if you’re curious. I head over here often.

We’re picking up immediately after Joshua sees Brendan waiting on him to finish with the Girl Scouts at Ash Cave.

Now that Halloran was here, Joshua found he couldn’t close the distance between them. After several emails setting up times and places to go ghost hunting, Joshua had enough clues to suspect Brendan Halloran was B. A. Halloran, author of one of his favorite YA fantasy series. An unrepentant geek, he would be lying if he said that realization played no role in accepting this job. He had spent more hours drawing fan art of Kiyomi Fujita and John Archer than he wanted to think about, no regrets though.

However, knowing what Halloran had been through in the last few years made him nervous about meeting the man and even more nervous about why he wanted to go ghost hunting. Was it really for a new series or was he trying to contact little Christian. Joshua had no idea what losing a child would do to the soul, didn’t even want to imagine it.

If you’d like to play along, Rainbow Snippets is a Facebook community where we post up 6 sentences of one of our LGBT stories every Saturday. It’s been fun and you can find it here. Be sure to check out all the offers! It’s been a great supportive group!

  1. Oh dear, poor guy, no wonder he’s depressed. I like the haunted building picture.

    This kind of reminds me of an old monastery I saw in Melk, in Austria, back in 1999. I don’t think it was supposed to be haunted, but in the 14th century or thereabouts the people there did a lot of study on the anti-Christ.

    It was dusk, the building was dark, gloomy, had high walls around it, and a grassy walkway edged with very high dark trees. I started walking along the path and suddenly was convinced if I turned and looked behind me I’d see a monk in a brown habit with his hood up and no face visible. I ran as fast as I could back to the car without looking behind me. Eek!
