One Day I won’t be running late but that day is not today.
Here’s a bit of a longer snippet of <i>These Haunted Hills</i>. Brendan is still talking with his ex about Josh as he shows her ghost hunting videos.
She started the second video but almost immediately paused it. She turned the phone toward him. “He is an absolute doll baby. How old is he? He can’t be old enough to have a PhD, I swear.”
“He does look young but he has to be in his late twenties. He’s younger than us but he’s not a kid.”
“Bren, hon, what did he say when he saw this video?”
“Why do you ask?”
“Because your target zone seems a bit off in this.”
“Oh, that was the wrong one. I thought I saw something following Josh and I’m not that good with a camera.”
“Please. I’ve known you for decades. You’re fine with a camera. You’re not trying to spot a ghost. You’re following his ass.”
“Heather!” The blush on his face could have reheated the dregs of his cappuccino.
“You are! It’s a mighty fine ass, too.”
Brendan chuckled. “It is. His job has him hiking out in the woods all the time. His backside is toned!”
“And you can’t keep your eyes off it. Did you even let him see this video?”
“Shut it! Yes, I did. He believed me that I was trying to track a shadow.”
I’m so very not with it any more. I have no time for anything. I’m just going to drop my snippet and run. Still with <i>These Haunted Hills</i>. Brendan is having coffee with his ex.
I’ve met his ghost hunting team and his steampunk group for that matter.”
Heather laughed. “How’d that go? The steampunk? Well the ghost hunting too.”
“The steampunk was fun. I was thinking of asking him to take me with him to their big party that’s happening soon.”
“You’ve found your people.”
“I have. He is such a Green Tablet fanboy.”
Heather laughed, nearly spraying the foam of her drink everywhere. “Oh, he’s so your people.” Brendan rolled his eyes. “Like you can’t believe.
Another weekend of me running around trying to catch my own tail so I’m going to just drop the snip and run. Still working on These Haunted Brendan is still talking to his ex
“My god, you actually went in? Is that safe?” Her green eyes were wide.
“Nope, not in the least. I was afraid I’d end up in the basement at any moment or crushed from above but damn if Josh isn’t fearless.”
“Tell me about him. You’re sure he’s on the level?” Heather reached across the table putting her hand over his. “You’re safe with him?”
Hell no he wasn’t safe. He was losing himself to Josh. Being in danger never felt so good.
