Teaser Tuesday - High Spirits: A Tale of Ghostly Rapping & Romance

Here is my teaser from High Spirits: A Tale of Ghostly Rapping & Romance by Dianne K. Salerni (Page 9):

The absolutely most horrible part of the house was the cellar.

Kate and I explored it, while Father and David moved furniture above us. Foul water squelched around our shoes, bubbling up from the damp earth floor. The wood beams supporting earthen walls leaned inwards at an alarming angle, giving us the unsettling impression of imminent collapse.

"It smells like an open grave," I stated in disgust.

"To be sure," answered Kate, "and there lies the corpse." She pointed at the darkest corner of the cellar where I could dimly make out a mound of loose earth piled carelessly against a crooked wall.

"What are you girls doing down there?"

The voice made us jump and clutch each other.
