And the Awesome Indies mystery story continues …

Addie did her best to keep the terror clawing at her insides from showing. It was best to play dumb and not give her aunt another massive anxiety attack. She’d get rid of that haunted comb; bury it with the others, deep in a hole where no hands could ever reach it. How this one had escaped her all these years, she didn’t understand. But the thing had to be dealt with by nightfall.
Her uncle grumbled something under his breath and eased himself into his recliner like he did every other evening. He clicked on the television and the familiar reporter announcing bad weather in some faraway place drew even her aunt from her constant worrying.
“I’m going for a short walk,” Addie said, drawing absent-minded nods from them both. She slipped outside and lit a cigarette. Three long drags relaxed her nerves enough to start walking toward the campsite.
She crossed the old bridge, glancing back several times. The hairs on her neck told her someone was watching her. It was most likely Kevin. He wouldn’t dare approach her, though. The last time he put his sleazy hands on her she pushed her pocketknife against his stomach and told him his long-dead mommy was watching from overhead.
Past the old workers’ cabins, she spotted the two tents on the bluff overlooking the railroad yard. The cozy trio were nowhere to be seen, which might make things a whole lot easier for her. She could take the comb and get rid of it without anyone being the wiser.
“Hello, hello, anyone at home?” Her greeting was met with silence.
She approached the first tent, took a quick look behind her, and then peeked inside it. The man, Rick, stared at her from lifeless eyes. Blood covered his crumpled body. A scream lodged in Addie’s throat and she started to run back toward the cabins. Then she spotted the woman, Mandy, charging out of the second tent and head straight for her.
