The family sat around a campfire
eating hot, gooey smores
Granny begins a ghost story
about the Texarkana Phantom

" I was just a whipper snapper
back in the day." She stated
I remember the stories of murder
and the Hooded Phantom

Folks say Saxophone music
can still be heard down by the swamp
where that monster threw
the murdered girl's horn

Granny warned,"Stay away
from lonely Lover's Lanes
The Phantom is said to haunt
such places."

Just then, a shadow
obliterated the moonlight
Granny asked," Do you hear that music?"
(Screaming...fades into silence)

This is great! Just enough details and suspense to tease the reader into wanting more and wondering what would happen next. Hope Granny didn't have a heart attack! PaulaAnne
