I’ve been working nano hard, pretty much should cross over to 40K tonight and I’m splitting it between two projects one of them being These Haunted Hills which I should finish if not tonight by Monday. I’m also getting highly anxious that we’ll get locked down by this time next week and I’ll have to race to get my finals online. I suspect (and will act accordingly) that we won’t be face to face in the spring semester which both sucks and might be a bit of a relief. However, internet here is so unreliable we’ll lose a ton of students with no access. (if there is anything we need it’s good internet. We’re so disadvantaged here)
And since this is what I’m working on have a little more of These Haunted Hills. Brendan has broken down telling Josh the truth about his pendant and is thinking about his lost son.
Brendan came back, his face washed, and sat down with Josh. “Can you stay with me a while?”
“I can stay as long as you need me to.” Josh had hoped to spend the night in a much more pleasant way but Brendan needed him tonight. Josh felt as shaky inside as Brendan was on the outside. He’d never seen a man so vulnerable and he wasn’t sure he was up to the task of helping him. He wanted to be but he’d not lost anyone close to him. His grandfather died when he was young but he barely remembered any of it. Other than that, he’d been lucky.
