The Van Helsing Impetus – Excerpt No. 218

Kyle took a video which had both the viewfinder and the fountain in the frame. He then turned the camera on himself before adopting his well-practised host pose.

“How spooky is that!” Kyle exclaimed. “Here we are in the ruins of an old railway hotel from the Roaring Twenties. From the naked eye, this appeared to be nothing more than an old fountain, now a home for skeeters and frogs.”

He paused before adopting the used-car-salesman smile, then panned the camera. That way he could show to their audience that there was no obvious source for the sound of running water.

“Riddle me this,” Kyle said. “Where’s that trickling sound coming from?”
