About this snippet: Chapter Two (Cemetery Gates) Snippet #13. Check out last week's snippet from Chapter Two snippet #12 here.
Setup for this snippet with a recap from last week: The man claiming to be her father who die twenty-three years ago disappeared then reappeared again, making her believe ghosts just might be real. He told her he'd been trying to make contact with someone.
"You've been dead for twenty-three years so what do you mean you've tried?" Then she realized what she said. Did she really believe she was seeing her father's spirit? Hell, she was talking to her father's spirit.
"Twenty-three years," he repeated then seemed to ponder those words as if he'd lost count of the years he'd been gone from the world of the living.
"After all this time, why can I see you?" she asked even though her mind argued this couldn't be happening. "Can Mom see you?" she threw another question at him before he could answer the first. Lars is here, her mother had stated. Only, she hadn't believed her, since she thought the alcohol and drugs were doing the talking.
Lars Gunner, the frontman for Silent Plaids, died 23 years ago and is trapped in limbo until his daughter, Cecilia, unearths his journal and is able to see him. His death was ruled an unfortunate accident, but he's convinced it had to be murder despite the fact he can't recall what happened in his last moments of life. Cecilia seeks the help from Kaleb, a psychic, but as they resurrect the past, the secrets and lies surrounding Lar's rock and roll life just may be the death of them too.
