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?”

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.

Missed yet another week. I was at Rathacon having fun with my airship group (the one I’m loosely basing Joshua’s on) and planned to do it the next day. AAAANDD my students successfully gave me the stomach flu that had been going around.

I’m picking up with Josh and Brendan out at the ruined murder hotel with his ghost hunting team. They are preparing to set up for a ghost hunting session.

Brendan jumped as their partners pulled up. “Fuck, I really am the panicky ghost hunter. This sucks.”

Josh laughed harder, nearly dropping the ladder. “You so are. I’m going to make sure Hunter keeps you in frame.”

You suck, Josh.”

You’d know.” Josh pursed his lips at him and Brendan flushed.

“Yeah, I certainly do.” Just what he didn’t need, thoughts of Josh’s full lips wrapped around his cock because the only thing more embarrassing than running from the ghosts would be running around with a giant hard on. If they were alone, he’d think about putting the bed of Josh’s truck to a different use but now the whole team was here bustling about. That was just the wet blanket he needed.

I got behind again. At least some of the reason was for fun this time. I got to go to my first in-person con since Covid, the Steampunk Symposium and had a blast.

I’m picking back up with These Haunted Hills with Brendan and Josh outside the ruins of the murder hotel.

“Are you really going to peek into the second story? What if she pushes the ladder?”

Josh grinned. “Now you’re sounding like one of us.”

“More like the on the ghost TV shows, the panicky one.”

Josh chuckled. “That’s the one all the fans love.”

“Guess that’s true.”

Brendan helped haul out the ladder. He still had no intentions of going up the ladder. He was likely to fall off in the best of times. A handyman Brendan was not but here he was, helping with tools and whatnot. Hell, the fact he considered going back into that damn hotel after the last two times proved one thing: he was falling in love with Doctor Joshua Zimmerman. How crazy was all of this? It felt insane and perfectly right all at the same time.
