Since I’m forever running late and I have to get stuff ready for the start of the semester in a day I’m just dropping more of These Haunted Hills and running. Where I left off was with them in Point Pleasant and now Josh is driving Brendan around to explore some of the little towns (sorry this is more than 6 lines) For context Vince is a character in Brendan’s bestselling YA series
As they made the long drive on Route 35, Josh filled him in on the haunts and a bit of town history before turning the conversation back to the Green Tablet.
“Seriously, why did you kill off Vince?”
“Never going to be forgiven,” Brendan muttered. “Originally it was going to be John but killing off a bisexual main character really would have gotten me flak, probably deserved. Besides, Connor wouldn’t have spoken to me ever again.” He touched his pendant again. “He was pretty steamed that Vince died.”
“I’m with your son on that one.”
“Someone had to die. It was part of the curse, remember? If I had wrote around that, it would have been a giant plot hole or a deus ex machina ending and I didn’t want that. So poor Vince died.”
“I ugly cried.”
“You owe me.” Josh drew the word out.
“A blow job?”
Josh jerked. “Don’t make me wreck.”
