Title The Mills of Justice
Description A light came on in the bedroom. Pete started to giggle, just anticipating what was going to happen. "Light the lantern, get my gun," shouted Ralph, as he pulled on his trousers. He grabbed the gun from Becky with his left hand as he tried to pull the door open with the right hand. It would not move-, he jerked up and down, then he banged it with his hand. In desperation he gave it a kick. Outside the boys were really enjoying the noise. "Bring the lantern," shouted Ralph, as he headed for the front door. He couldn't believe it! The front door was stuck too. "Oh, Ralph, it's ghosts. I know it is," whimpered Becky. "Don't be foolish, woman, hold this!" He handed her the gun as he moved the geranium pots out of the window sill. He pushed on the windown frame, but nothing happened. Recent storms had made the wood swell. The quiet giggles of the boys outside had now increased to laughter. Although very frustrated, Ralph was trying to control his anger. He grabbed hold of the top of the window frame and pushed with all his strength. The window frame finally moved and he got it open far enough for him to climb through. "Ralph, be careful! You can't shoot ghosts." "You and your ghost stories; Stay in the house!" Quickly and carefully, Ralph made his way to the barnyard. The fun was over, and this was a good time to "scram", so the boys continued on their way. They did not want to be around when Ralph came back and found the rope on the door knobs. "John, your place is next. Do you still want to do what we planned?" "Sure, Dad will never know I was in on it. He believes in ghosts anyway." -36-
