I know I owe comments from last week. My internet has been hooking up at .09 mbps so welcome 1998. I can’t load much of anything. I’m back up to a full .6 mbps today (when it’s actually on) so hopefully I can do better! (But no accompanying picture today because there’s no prayer of even loading the page let alone uploading anything).
I’m still working with These Haunted Hills. I’ve skipped ahead just a little to the next chapter where Joshua takes Brendan to the Ridges (the Athens Lunatic Asylum) to talk ghosts. It’s a tad over six sentences (I think it’s 8, just like last week.) This time they’re out of the graveyard and going up to the asylum itself.
“We have a vague pentagram of cemeteries in Athens. You might want to Goggle the spiritualist movement origins of the city. I could take you up to the weeping angel statue, right up from that coffee shop we were in, but she’s not the cool Dr. Who kind of angel.”
Brendan chuckled. “You are such a geek.”
“As advertised.” Joshua thumped his chest.
“I’ll be happy she’s not a Whovian angel. I’m not up for quantum locked villains on our first day.”
“I’m definitely not the only geek climbing this hill.”
“No, you are not.” Brendan shielded his eyes against the afternoon sun. “This place is huge. I can’t imagine being locked up here.”
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!
