Mike dangled a quartz crystal from a black cord clenched in his fist, but it didn’t move. “I’m not getting anything,” he replied with a heavy sigh. “Let’s go check out that barn.”
Aurelia coughed. “Please,” she said. “My asthma is starting to act up. This dust is horrible.” Without waiting for the others, she climbed back up the stairs and exited through the side door.
After a few minutes, the quartet stood under the shade of the trees alongside the slab rock dwelling. They quickly marched across the road and towards the abandoned farm located no more than one hundred yards away. A teetering, two-story house, the side of which had been painted orange by the setting sun, greeted them. A large barn and a cement silo stood at the end of the gravel driveway.
“That must be the barn,” Mike announced as he approached the gaping, weed draped entrance. “The barn of death.”
“I hope it’s not the barn of death,” Greg joked, “because we’re the only living things around here.”
“Heads up,” Emmer shouted as the grinding of gravel under the wheels of a car told him they were no longer alone. A sleek, white Ford Explorer crawled up the driveway.
