An Excerpt From My New Untitled Project: “The Client”

The following is an excerpt from a new project that I am working on. I would love to hear your thoughts. Bear in mind that this is simply an excerpt ♥️

And trust me, if I do this for you, one of y’all will end up DEAD.

Honey, you need to rethink that.

Do you know what you’re asking?

Well let me be clear.

You never want to bind a man to you.

Especially if he done told you he don’t want you.

Now I know you came to me because you heard about my work.

But let me tell you chile, there are some things I’ll never do!

And that includes binding spells.

Why?

Because they’re fatal.

You ain’t really thought about the consequences that come when you bind somebody to you against their will…have you?

Naw, you ain’t thought about it at all.

You still a baby.

You just want what you want.

But how you gon’ feel when you find yourself all bound up with a man that’s full of hate and anger?

Furious, because he can’t stand you or the situation!

He don’t wanna be there– but you fixed it so he can’t leave…and, to make matters worse, he don’t know why!

Naw honey, I can’t do that kinda work.

I really can’t …

Because if he kill you in anger, I’ll never get over it.

And trust me, if I do this for you, one of y’all will end up DEAD.

Now…

Go somewhere and rest your mind.

Think about what you really want.

There’s a-plenty things you can ask for that I’ll be more than willing to help you with.

But right now, you’re not in your right mind.

A Family Conversation: The Cousins Discuss The Tegus, Haints, Ghouls, Cemeteries and Dead Heroes

“A Family Conversation” is a storytelling audio series that features weekly discussions between blogging cousins LadyG and Ron Brown on current events along with favorite posts from each other’s blog.

“A Family Conversation” is published on Wednesdays.

********************************************************************

This week, Ron and I discuss the post (cowritten by me and my Dad), “A Grave Encounter: The Four-legged Ghoul,” based on a real-life event that my father experienced as a child in Eufaula, AL (Circa 1955).

In this week’s conversation we discuss everything from Haints to the “Hogbear” of Cuthbert, to time travel to the origins of Memorial Day.

Trust me, if the subject pertains to the supernatural, we touched on it in some way.

Enjoy!

NOTE:

In audio 4, when I was referring to Charleston, I meant to mention that I’ve noticed that lot of people enjoy visiting historic cemeteries where they like to do grave rubbings.

Of course, I got sidetracked with the ghost story!

Anyway, I saw a lot of people doing grave rubbings at one of the churches there. I cannot be bothered to google this, but I think it had something to do with the French Hugenots .

Also the area that I mentioned downtown where the African Americans were doing traditional African basket weaving was previously used to sell slaves; it is known as
The Charleston City Market: https://www.thecharlestoncitymarket.com/

The Hotel that I referenced appears to have been changed up. I believe that it is this one: https://www.belmond.com/ideas/articles/belmond-charleston-place
I think that it is this hotel because I remember the distinct double stairway with the chandelier at the entrance.

I couldn’t find much history on it though. I just remember it being quite classy.
I do not think it had the “Belmond” name when I stayed there. If anybody knows anything about it, please let me know.
Peace,
LadyG
