Hunting the Haunted
Booger Tales - One

“This man is a stranger, someone you don’t know?” Grace seemed to have the same opinion of my ghost hunter as Ree did. “You’ve never seen him before, know nothing about him?”

“Never saw him before in my life.”

“He drives a hearse? A real one?” Ree asked.

“So he said.”

“And you’re really going with him to the backside of nowhere to search for ghosts?” Grace couldn’t believe I wasn’t joking. Her logical mind had trouble accepting something like this.

“I suppose I am. At least, I promised him I would.”

“Alone?” she continued.

“Just me and him, two strangers disappearing into a dark and rainy night.”
