A-Z Blog Challenge "H"

Day six and the letter "H" for the A-Z Blog Challenge. If this is your first time here, my A-Z challenge is based on Urban Legends, and follows the life of a small town Nevada reporter, Adele.
If you are stopping by from the challenge (or anywhere else, like the Parajunkee Hop or Facebook)-feel free to join the Bluestocking Club, or follow me on Twitter! Thanks everyone for all your comments, I am still trying to catch up, but if you leave your blog url, I *will* get to you!

Adele's story continues...
Part of my job is to tell you the truth. But a certain amount of trust has to be placed in me. I was there. I'm a writer, a seeker of truth. You can trust me.
I, like many small town reporters, has a police scanner. This is the story as I understood it: A teenage boy, a local and his date, also a local, drove his date to the old Goldtown hollows. Not unusual.But of course I've mentioned that there used to be a prison up here, up until the 50's.
By the time I got to the scene, there was already yellow police tape crisscrossing the car and boulders and sage brush surrounding the place they had parked. The photographer was taking pictures. The air was hot and dry and seared your insides when you took a breath. The car looked like it had been painted in blood, and in a plastic evidence bag (don't ask me where or how I found it) were several bloody fish hooks.

And now, dear readers, I must leave you. Don't forget, these stories will be available in their entirety at the end of the month when I collect them into a book of short stories.

So cold

I have never been this cold before, inside and out. It's hard to think, it's hard to process a thought. There's no physical heat...
