The Hung Preacher
by Scott Nicholson
Ronnie Day didn’t want to believe it.
It had been four years since he’d last seen the old preacher’s ghost, enough time to believe it had never happened. Ronnie and his little brother Tim still whispered about it once in a while as they were falling asleep. But ghosts were kids’ stuff. Ronnie was in high school now and planning on attending Westridge University after graduation. He didn’t have time for such nonsense these days.
Tim, though, was as full of it as ever.
“I seen him,” Tim said, toying with his iPod. Tim was still into bubble-gum pop bands like most eighth graders, but that was fine with Ronnie. Too many of his buddies had gone for banjo music, and that stuff made him want to jump off a bridge.
“‘Saw’ him. I thought you were getting A’s in English.” Ronnie was just trying to change the subject. He didn’t want to think about ghosts and monsters. Dad said to just bury all that stuff, like they’d buried the people that had died.
“I can write, I just can’t speak good grammar yet. I have to see it in front of me.”
