Oops I was attending a virtual Poe lecture hosted by NYC’s Boroughs of the Dead tours and totally forgot to do this.
I have to drive to Pittsburgh tomorrow as my birthday is next week and my family wants me home. Sigh.
I’m picking up where I left off with These Haunted Hills, Josh and Brendan are having their first kiss when the sounds of glass breaking in the haunted hotel startles them.
Both of them whipped around to face the hotel. There was no glass of course. Both of them knew it. Josh couldn’t breathe, a weight as heavy as the hills settling on him.
“God, I’m suddenly terrified,” Brendan whispered, shaking next to him.
Brendan edged away even as Josh turned on the camera again. His erected fell and his nerves sang too loudly for him to care. He saw nothing but recorded anyhow.
“Are you there?” he asked the wind.
Brendan pulled on his shirt. “Are you insane? Let’s get out of here. We woke up something that doesn’t want us 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!
