Haunted Nights at Drumheller Castle: Ethereal Quandary: A St. Charles Tall Tale by Faly Colaizzi

Excerpt from “Chapter Six: Ariel”:

Morning rolled in the next day a bit on the sunny side in
downtown St. Charles. Jake had woken up feeling slightly
groggy, yet he felt a smidgen better even after his tumultuous
day at the castle. He caught the scent of coffee brewing as he
decided to fix himself some breakfast, heading downstairs to search
for his mother. “Good morning,” he rumbled in a low, timid tone
when he saw her.

“Well, good morning to you,” she responded.

“Sorry.” Jake lowered his head. “I didn’t let you know where I
was going yesterday.”
