I made it home to begin the new semester. The day I arrive my less than 5 year old TV gave up the ghost and then yesterday I took a terrible fall and banged up just about everything. Whee.
I’m continuing with These Haunted Hills (which I’d be out hiking in right now because it’s somehow 73 degrees in Ohio in Jan. except i tore up my knee). We left Brendan, Josh, Cass and Hoshi in an attic where a ghost has turned out the lights the last we saw them.
“His name was Kent,” Josh offered. “Kent, we’re here to talk. You can turn my flashlight off to show us you’re here.”
Brendan stared at the thin line of light, waiting to see what would happen. The light went off. Josh and Cassia whooped. Brendan edged toward the staircase out of the attic. The light came back on. He’d been watching Josh’s hands and knew Josh wasn’t putting him on.
“That is amazing,” Brendan said.
“I know. Can you do it again, Kent?” Josh asked and the light went back off and on.
“Is there anything we can do? Anything you’d like us to know?” Hoshi asked.
If he answered, she gave no signs.
