The Previous Owner #69

by

Jim Foster kept making entries every couple of days, always making excuses for why he couldn't go to the police. Then something was written in the book that made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.

He wrote on October 5, 1979:

"I had the strangest dream last night. A woman appeared to me in my dream, a short woman with red hair and pale skin. She told me the job wasn't finished. And she called me son. Only she wasn't my mother."

I felt sick. The same dream I had Foster also had..... 40 years ago!

    This is the trouble with posting something as you're writing it. I need now for Betty Finch to have told Teddy Martin in his dream that the job wasn't finished, but that one is already posted. We'll just have to move forward thinking she did say that in the dream he had about her. I supposed I could go back and try to edit it and fit it in.

    Okay, I edited it. It was the one called "The Dream" if anyone wants to refer back to it.

    That's three times, at least.
    At least three times that the hair on the back of my neck has stood up. Awesome :)

    It's a compliment giving you multiple hair-raising experiences, Drew.
