Stevie-girl and the Phantom of Crybaby Bridge revisited #WeWriWa

Hello Weekend Writers, here is another snippet from book three in the Phantom series.  Last week, Jase and Stevie thought they heard a crying baby. They also thought they saw a ghostly figure.  This time, I'm not going strictly in order. But this is the gist of what happened the next time they visited Crybaby Bridge ...

          “It looks like a woman,” Jase murmured.  “What’s she wearing, a nightgown?”

            The fabric did appear to be quite thin, or perhaps that was because of the rays of fading light behind her.  “What’s she doing?”
            Jase shook his head.  “She appears to be looking for something . . .”
            My breath froze in my throat.
            She was coming toward us, toward the bridge.  Her eyes were downcast, searching the banks of the creek as she glided along. 
            “Waahhhmaaahh.”  The sound was louder.

Okay, that's all today.  Don't forget to visit all the other authors at #WeWriWa
