I’m pretty heartbroken after everything that has happened in this country this week so I have little else to say. I’m just going to share this snippet and go. I’ve hardly been able to write at all.
I’m picking up with These Haunted Hills where I left off. Josh and Brendan are discussing getting a ladder to look into the upper floor where they thought they saw a shadow moving in the haunted hotel.
Josh nodded. “We might be able to use one to peek inside though. We’ll need to test the wall and see if it’s sturdy enough to bear any sort of weight.”
“We can do that. Might have to be you. You’re limber like a squirrel.”
Josh felt eyes on him. He turned off the camera, realizing Brendan’s gaze no longer raked the tree tops.
“I’m clumsy. I would find a way to fall off the ladder in the most comical way possible,” he continued.
Josh laughed hard. “Surely it’s not as bad as that.”
“I’m surprised I haven’t fallen over a hill yet trailing after you.”
“You just have to keep your eyes on the roots.”
“That’s not where my eyes are usually looking.”
The throatiness of Brendan’s response brought heat to Josh’s cheeks. Brendan’s lake deep eyes burned. Josh swallowed hard, trying to stave off the fire spreading down him to unrulier parts.
“Oh,” was all he could say. He meant to say something witty, he wanted to be suave but he could barely breathe, every nerve sparking.
