Stevie-girl and the Phantom of Crybaby Bridge ~ Book 3 in the Phantom Series





          HelloWarriors! 
          Thank you all for the lovely comments last week, and thanks for stopping by for another installment of Stevie-girl and the Phantom of Crybaby Bridge, Book 3 in the Phantom Series.  It should be out NEXT WEEK.  Whoohoo!  Ahem, okay, back to business...
          Last week, Jase and Stevie encountered an eerie woman in white coming toward them across the bridge.  Here's what happened next (I had to mashup a couple of sentences to make it 8 - forgive me.) It's told from Stevie-girl's POV.
         

          Still standing on the bridge, we were transfixed by the woman in white when we thought we heard the crying sound again.
         “Was that her?” I whispered.
         Jase shook his head.
         Suddenly, I caught a glimpse of movement as something pink floated out from under the bridge.
         “It’s a baby,” I shouted.  “In the water!”  I yanked Jase’s arm and pointed at the swirling, stuttering creek.
         The woman dove in and disappeared.  All that was left was a shimmer of white beneath the skin of the creek and a lazy splotch of long dark hair that floated outward around her head in a soft caul.



Okay, that's all today.  Don't forget to visit all the other authors at #Weekend Writing Warriors     http://www.wewriwa.com

  1. I'm hooked to this story. I love your characters and I really want more.
    I also wonder if a ghost can swim.
