It’s world book day and I spent an hour of it reading on my porch because it’s also ridiculously warm for this time of year. It’s a pretty day and I wish I had time to enjoy more of it.
Still continuing with These Haunted Hills and Josh’s ghost hunting team is outside the ruined murder hotel with Brendan. It’s a little longer than 6 lines sorry to give the context.
“Good, let’s get that ladder up first,” Cassia said. “Might as well get it out of the way before we go tramping around inside.”
“Which of us is going up the ladder?” Hunter asked, hefting a camera.
“I do not like heights” Madison said.
“I’ll do it,” Josh said. “Hunter, Cass you want a try too?”
“How about our guest?” Cassia glanced at Brendan. “You wanted to learn how we do what we do.”
Brendan shook his head. “Noooo, you don’t want me up a ladder. I’ll end up the next ghost in this place.”
“He’s clumsy, well according to him. I’ve yet to see it.”
“Because I’ve kept both feet on the grown. Honestly I’m surprised I haven’t fallen out of that loft bedroom at the cabin yet.”
“You still have time,” Josh returned cheerily as he and Hunter hiked the ladder toward the hotel.
“Thanks.” Now all he could picture was him and Josh getting too frisky and rolling right over the edge. What kind of obituary would that make? Worse, they might live, it would make the news and he’d never live it down. He could just imagine Heather’s reaction. Or Cassia’s for that matter.
