As sheriff of Kenner City, Colorado, Patrick Martinez
couldn't believe the body of an FBI agent had turned up in
his normally quiet jurisdiction. Even more shocking was
the appearance of Officer Sabrina "Bree" Hunter, a painful
yet passionate memory he'd hoped to leave buried in his
past. Now, working side by side was crucial to solving
this case. But one look from her dark eyes and Patrick
couldn't fight the attraction that still left him
powerlessâ€”nor ignore the secret he knew she was holding on
to. Then a stalker set his sights on Bree, and Patrick
learned just how deep that secret ranâ€¦.

Re: Secrets In Four Corners
Your story sounds really intriguing. I look forward to reading more.
Here is mine...
When my mother was five, she found a little man who was about a foot tall with a damaged leg. He was lying in a nearby hay field on the farm where my mother grew up and she decided to carry him home and get help for him. Her little brother walked along with her and kept insisting that he also wanted a chance to carry this extraordinary little man clothed in a leafgreen suit. My mother finally relented and reached down to give him to her brother. But, in the moment of transfer, the wee man jumped from her brotherâ€™s little fingers and disappeared in the long grass never to be seen again.
This is the story I remember the most from my mother as a young child and I would spend countless days wandering in meadows and woods to see if I also could find tiny people and building little houses from leaves and twigs for them to enjoy. If she warned me about bogeymen or of dangers that could happen, they didnâ€™t make an impact on my mind as I certainly donâ€™t recall. I just remember a stern warning never to be late for supper and not to go beyond certain boundaries.
But, one hot summer day, when I was six and my sister four, I was drawn to the cool pool of green water in an old quarry that laid well beyond our usual boundaries. We just wanted to dip our toes in and maybe slash a bit. It was refreshing and fun until tall shadows blocked our view. It was a gang of teenagers who didnâ€™t want two little white kids in their turf.
They forced us deeper and deeper into the water until my feet couldnâ€™t touch water and then they keep pushing my head under and holding me down till I couldnâ€™t breathe. Then, a shout and my head bobbed up. I saw my mother, but her white blouse was torn and covered in red stains. Then, I was pushed under again.
After that, I just have a brief flash of memory of a policeman giving me a beautiful colouring book and a fresh pack of 16 Crayola crayons

I don't really have anything like that
but I used to live in South Africa. I
remember walking to school every day
and walking back everyday. I had to
walk past this paper mill and one day I
was by myself. All I remember was
they gave me all kinds of writing paper
and pencils and pens. About a year
later we moved to America. I didn't
find out until later that our
housekeeper had found out that they
were giving me paper everyday and
had planned to abduct me. Apparently
the police were called in but I just
don't remember because I was so

Audrey, wow! What great stories. As a kid I was terrified of getting pushed under the water.

Val, that's wild! Thank goodness you got away safely. That has to be the scariest part of being a parent. You see in the news where children are lured in like that. Makes me shiver!

Due to my family being very religious, they did not believe in ghosts or the boogeyman. I love reading stories of them but have no personal experiences to share. I wish I did, so I could be entered into the contest. I would love the book. Thanks for you time.

Roberta, Thanks for dropping by just the same! It's wonderful to hear from you!

My parents started building a house in the country in PA, then had to relocate. The house was a 2-story, cement block home with a full basement. Several years later, my husband and I decided to finish off the first floor. I lived there for several years. At times, we would feel an extreme cold feeling, even on the hottest day of the summer. We had it checked out for drafts, fireplace drafts, etc., but everyone said there was no reason for the feelings and said it must have been from watching spooky shows (which we never did) or an overactive imagination. We would just leave the house for about an hour, and when we went back in, everything would be OK. It didn't matter where in the house we were, either on the main floor or in the basement. Others would feel it too, without us saying anything. The neighbors told us that that area used to be an Indian burial ground, but I could never find proof of that. The feeling was never that it (the ghost or spirit) would hurt us but just wanted us out of the house for some reason or another. After we left and my parents died, I sold the property. The second story was eventually completed, but the house was sold several times. I truly believe that house was haunted.

We had a house like that when I was a kid. My brother and I NEVER went in the basement or to the unfinished upstairs alone and NEVER, EVER after dark! It was just too creepy. Imagination, maybe.
