Mark Tufo's Haunted Blog Tour - Stop 3

Hello fellow ghosts and ghoul hunters! Welcome to Mark Tufo’s Haunted Blog Tour. The Haunted Blog Tour will be a ten day chill fest that will take you from one Haunted Blog to another! Today is the third day of our Haunted Blog Tour...our host for this adventure, THE SPIRIT CLEARING’s Michael Talbot. Along the tour you will have a chance to win Michael’s twisted story along with some other exciting prizes (nothing big, just over $200 in great prizes)!
At our last stop via Bending The Spine we embarked on our haunted adventure (Alaiel: I really encourage you to read all the posts so you can follow the clues!) and now it is time to go further with Michael Talbot our host for this Haunted Blog Tour! Let us check back in with him...

“Who’s got the flashlights?” I might have asked with a little too much lilt in my voice. I coughed to try to cover it up.
“Look at this place.” An older gentleman said as his light splayed across the far wall.
The receiving room was huge probably fifty by fifty feet. To call the paint peeling would be the same as saying zombies had mild psoriasis. ‘Chips’ the size of standard pieces of paper hung in suspension against the walls. Rusted rails looked down at us where the guards could hold the high ground and show the newly interned prisoners exactly where they stood.
“What was that?” The older gentleman with the flashlight asked.
I turned and checked the door it was locked like I figured it would be. I pulled out my cell phone, the glow of the screen somehow comforting in the pressing gloom of this place.
‘BT where you at?’ I sent a text to my best friend. He’d been getting me out of jams for longer than I cared to remember, plus he was like 6’5” 315 pounds of pure meanness.
Glared at me. “On my own, I guess. What’s your name?” I asked the older man.
“Jed.” He told me.
“What’d you see?” I asked him. I had my fingers crossed hoping it hadn’t been werewolves, vampires or zombies. A cat if it was alone might be an acceptable answer.
“It happened so fast.” He continued. “It’s tough to say, it was like this black mass darted past my light.”
“Why’s it always a black mass? No chance it could be like a heavenly white light?” I asked the heavens.
“Is this all part of the tour?” A heavyset man with a shirt three sizes too small asked. Had we still been outside I would have told you looking at his hairy gut was the single most scary thing, but that changed once we got inside.
“I was assured this would not be a tampered with investigation” Goth girl said nearly stamping her feet. “What should we expect next? A man in a sheet perhaps.” She said staring right at me.
I put my hands up. “Hey I have no knowledge of anything going on in here.”
“That’s my point exactly, You have no knowledge!” She added.
“You do realize the loudest person in the movies is always the first to go don’t you?” I asked.
She shut up, I could only wonder how much time I had bought.
“I really think my son is getting scared and wants to leave.” Pinching mom said.
“I’m fine mom.”
“No, you’re not!” She said hysterically. “You really want to get out of here!”
“I’m having a blast.” He told her.
She wrenched him by the arm and pushed past me. “Open it!” She shrieked at me, when she realized it was locked.
I shrugged my shoulders. “They didn’t give me the keys.”
She banged on the door a couple of times. “My son is nearly in fits, you need to let me...him out of here!” She screamed.
Jed came to the rescue. “Listen I have the itinerary for the tour here and how we are to get out, it says here that our next stop is Cell Block ‘C’.”
“Cool!” Peppy Peter said ripping his arm free from his mother’s claws.
She rested her head against the door. We both said “Wonderful.”

So now, you just need to answer today's question in the Rafflecopter form for your chance to win something beyond spooktacular!
