Welcome back readers. Excited to share more of my story Afterlife.
Last we left off with Marshall telling Scotlynn the story about how his step mother Valerie and her boyfriend tried to kill his father and succeeded with him.
“Hot damn, Marsh, that’s…that’s well it’s just crazy!”
“I know. The worst part is now my dad is still living with her and he has no idea. I’m afraid for his life, Scotlynn. Please tell me you can help.” He clasped his hands in a pleading gesture.
“It seems dangerous…how am I supposed to investigate all this?” I asked, folding my arms over my chest. He gave me a hard glare and floated toward me but I did not waver. No matter how much I wanted to help him, I didn’t want to risk my life. This was murder we were talking about.
“I know you have a boyfriend and I know he’s a detective, so don’t play me,” Marshall said.
“If you won’t do this for me, please do it for my dad.” Marshall floated so close to me his spirit energy made me shiver. Live beings radiated heat; spirits emitted cold.
I looked into those ghostly, pleading eyes of his and – wait a darn tootin’ second. How the hell-on-high-water did he know I was dating Jax? Son of a biscuit-eating bulldog, he’s been stalking me. Calm down, I tell myself. You did break his heart. Maybe he looked you up for closure or something. Don’t jump to conclusions.
Scotlynn has a Detective boyfriend? Hmm. Wonder when we will meet him and how does Marshall know about him?
Tune in next week to find out more. As well don’t forget to stop by every Friday for my Reading Corner, where I talk about books I’ve read and how much I loved them.
