No one knew how long the creek bed had been dry, but several old graves could be found under the bridge. None of them had any markings. Rumors were rampant in the nearby town as to whom or what was buried under those abandoned tombstones. The county scanned the ground. They were convinced that bodies were properly buried under the bridge. Their conclusions didn’t stop the rumors.
The above is from chapter one of my current WIP, Abandoned Souls, due out summer 2014.
