I survived the first week of classes. Judging by my interactions this week, this is going to be a good semester with good students so huzzah. As for me I’m far more banged up than I first thought so I’m one big bruise. HOW I hurt myself this bad just falling over my own two feet, I have no idea.
Continuing with These Haunted Hills, the team is in the attic where the ghost has manipulated their flashlights.
Brendan heard nothing but hoped there would be something on the digital recording. Nothing else happened for several minutes as they prowled the large attic. A sudden loud knock made Brendan jump so hard, he nearly fell over a box.
Josh, far more calmly than Brendan could have managed, called down to Hunter. “Did you guys knock on something?”
“No,” came Hunter’s response.
“Do that again if you can,” Cassia said and another two knocks sounded.
Brendan had to restrain himself from showing them what the fight or flight response was all about. It couldn’t be more than twenty steps to the staircase. He didn’t run for it. That would be too embarrassing but self-preservation thoughts did echo in his brain.
Finally Hoshi let out a soft sigh. “He’s really tapping my energy.”
“Okay we better go down then. Brendan want to take point?” Josh asked.
