I’m worn out and sick between troubles at the university and an inner ear infection that’s been plaguing me all week.

This will be the last snippet from These Haunted Hills for a while because I want to start snippeting from some upcoming releases. Brendan and Josh are now done listening to the evidence they captured.

I should probably write this up.” Brendan popped the recorder out of his laptop.

Josh took that as an indication to go. “Do you need quiet? I might sit on your porch for a little while after two glasses of wine. I don’t like driving when I know I’m over the limit even if I don’t feel buzzed.”

“You don’t have to go,” Brendan said, looking almost surprised he said it. “Feel free to turn on the TV. It won’t bother me.”

I was at the Mothman festival today which was nowhere near as fun as it is usually and hot to boot so I’m heat beat I’ll keep this quick.

More from These Haunted Hills where they are listening to the captured ghostly evidence.

Brendan grabbed a notepad he had on the table since they were using his laptop to listen with. He jotted it down. Josh stared, horrified the man’s handwriting was worse than his own. He always pictured Brendan as having the perfect script of a Victorian gentleman in spite of the scribbled autograph he had in his books. Josh had been attributing that to Brendan being exhausted at signings. Nope, he wrote like the pen was in his nose.

“What?” Amusement and annoyance warred in that single word.

“Dude, your writing is the kind I pray I don’t get on an exam essay.”

Brendan jabbed a finger at him. “Hush. Come on, let’s hear more.”

It’s been a lazy week but now my procrastination has set me up with a brutal weekend. Whimpers. I didn’t do much actual writing (I lie but it was all for a fanfic novel I started 15 years ago and was challenged to finish so by god, that Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel the Series crossover is FINISHED)

Still with the ghost evidence perusal in These Haunted Hills. Pretty soon I’m going to change it up and start snippeting my upcoming release.

As Brendan poured more fruit of the vine, Josh set up the recorder. He always hated the sound of his voice on recording but was there anyone who didn’t? There was nothing but the sounds of him asking questions and his and Brendan’s footsteps for a few minutes. Between questions while they were in the bedroom a faint voice sounded. He and Brendan sat up straighter in near unison.

“Did you hear that?” Brendan asked even as Josh was rewinding it.

“Listen close,” he instructed then stabbed play.

Clear as the call of a night bird, they heard a woman’s voice say ‘Help, Dorothy!’

Brendan grabbed Josh’s wrist, his fingers trembling. “I have chills!’

Josh held out his other arm, showing off goosebumps. “Tell me about it. Wow, we have a name. Have you come across a Dorothy in the research?”

“Not yet. You?”

“No.”

Sorry it took so long to catch up on everyone’s snippets. It was Monday then suddenly Saturday morning and I’m not sure what happened between! Time warp, I swear.

Still reviewing ghostly happenings with Josh and Brendan in These Haunted Hills

“We watched this (the video evidence) together. Might as well listen to the recording together too. Do we need the headphones to really hear it or can we just turn it up loud?”

“We can certainly try it loud. I’ll be listening to it more than once. I just wish I could show the video around.” Josh sighed. He truly hadn’t been expecting such dramatic footage. Sure, he could show Cass but it couldn’t go up on the website.

“Why can’t you?”

“You’re pretty famous. I don’t want to damage your reputation, which you know as well as I do, this could impact it.”

Brendan made an unhappy noise. “You have a point. Want more wine while we listen?”

So after two weeks I finally have internet again. Sorry for not getting to comment. It was super fun having no internet both good and bad fun, really. Good fun – no distractions from writing. Bad fun -I’m teaching an online class for the first time ever and I was asked to do so last minute so NOTHING is set up. Whee.

I’m picking right back up where I left off with These Haunted Hills with Josh and Brendan looking at what evidence of the paranormal they caught at the hotel. (a little longer than 6 because I’m being too lazy to pick the 6 best sentences from this scene)

“Sometimes things are more noticeable in the dark. There’s a theory that ghosts drain energy to manifest themselves and otherwise interact with this world. They like to drain batteries for instance so if we’re there at night we can see flashlights dim. Hell, a lot of the times we ask them to turn the flashlights off and on. It works. The TV shows also do it because it adds to the scary ambiance.”

Brendan snorted. “And when we go with Cassia, it’ll be at night, right?”

“Oh yeah. Cass is an endocrinology resident right now so her free time is at a premium. She’d definitely go without sleep to spend the night with you.” Josh meant that last statement anyway it could be taken. He didn’t miss the slight flush to Brendan’s cheeks. A hint of disappointment wormed into his heart. Did Brendan like the idea of being with a woman he hadn’t even more than he might like it if Josh had said the same thing about himself? No, he was being idiotic. Brendan surely was embarrassed by the double entendre.

“I’ll keep that in mind.

I’ll be busy going back to Ohio tomorrow so I’m glad this is up early. I can’t believe the semester is about to start. I’m not thrilled with some of the curve balls the university has already pitched to me. But I’m going back early for the first ever science camp for our incoming freshman. Cross your fingers it goes well. (at least I’ll have 4 hours of drive time to mull over story ideas)

I’m continuing with These Haunted Hills right after Brendan asked to see even more evidence.

Josh happily complied. He was disappointed that none of the evidence had an auditory component, at least not on the video recording. The evidence from the room amazed him. He’d think it was faked if he hadn’t lived it. Brendan’s breathing sped up, his foot bouncing as he watched the recording.

“Okay, some delayed bladder control issues might happen,” he said, laughing.

Josh snorted. “It was pretty scary.”

“I didn’t know there would be so much activity in the daylight hours.” Brendan shivered, real concern showing on his face so much so Josh wish he knew the man well enough to hold him and comfort him. “The TV shows always have them working at night.”

It’s been a week that culminated in me finding a great deal on a 3 year old, low-mileage Honda CRV so now I have a new to me car. On the downside, I have not much to show writing wise and deadlines are looming (not to mention ones at work).

Here’s a little more of my paranormal WIP These Haunted Hill. Josh and Brendan are still looking over the evidence of the hauntings. It’s a little longer this week (mostly because it just felt more complete)

“Yep.” Josh rolled it back again so they could watch it again. He wrote down the time data so he could find it again when he showed this to Cassia. “This is some fantastic evidence.”

“I am stunned. I have to say, I didn’t believe in ghosts, entirely. This makes me rethink so much.”

Looking over his shoulder, Josh lost himself for a moment in the deepness of Brendan’s dark eyes. Him sitting this close was only going to lead to embarrassment. “I’m glad to hear that. And we haven’t even gotten to the bedroom yet.”

“I know. Do you think that was one of the killing rooms?”

“Possible. I know a couple of the downstairs rooms had deadfalls built into them. The floor felt sturdy so maybe not. Still, you know that whole place has to be swimming in ghosts, if any place is.”

Brendan nodded. “I’m really going to have to dig into the history tomorrow.” He tapped the edge of the laptop. “Let’s see more!”
