I cannot get my shit together so I’m just going to drop the snippet and run. It’s still from These Haunted Hills
“Have you spoken to your friends with the cadaver dogs? I’d like to see what happens if they do a search,” Cassia said, side stepped the root Brendan nearly tripped over himself.
“I’d like to see that myself if it happens,” he added.
“I’ll ask but they might not be available for a while.” Josh stopped, turning a bit to look at Brendan before hefting the ladder and starting to walk again. “You might have to come back once your planned time here is over Brendan.” Was there a jibe in that? No, more like a pain filled question that probably should have waited until they were alone
Super late again but of course I didn’t even make it last weekend. That was because it was insanely hot at graduation that even the heat loving faculty were complaining. I was pretty near dead and I do think we all had some heat exhaustion because the next day a lot of us were pretty sickly.
Just picking up again with These Haunted Hills. They’re still getting ready to investigate the haunted ruined murder hotel.
Brendan studied the ruins, wondering how he would capture the isolation and loneliness of this place, the despair that seemed to taint the encroaching wilderness in words. He wasn’t sure he could paint a word picture this desolate. “Josh?”
“Yeah?” “You did tell them what happened last time we were here, right?”
Running super late but I didn’t want nearly a month to go by which seemed likely. Last weekend was the oddities and curiosities expo in Columbus which was a blast. This weekend was free comic book day and I wasn’t missing that. Next weekend is graduation and me running around trying to grade all the things so I’m sliding in late with this.
Still working on These Haunted Hills with Brendan, Josh and company getting ready to investigate the haunted ruins.
“Are you coming with us?” Josh cocked up an eyebrow.
Brendan blushed, realizing the team had started walking to the hotel and he was hovering near the truck being ridiculously horny. “Yeah, sorry, writer’s brain started working over time,” he lied. Well, half-truth or something, right? He did have an overactive imagination thanks to his craft.
He followed them through the high grass to the back side of the building where he and Josh thought they had seen shadows pacing in front of the window. Brendan hunched his shoulders. He couldn’t feel the overwhelming malice he had the last time he was here, but it could be lurking, waiting for them. Sure, he and Josh hadn’t shared a hallucination on that account.
Cassia waggled something at him. Brendan reached out realizing she was trying to hand him an EMF reader. “You remember how to use it, right?”
