WHO: David and Sanura
WHAT: Wondering, wishing, waiting. Oh, and ghost hunting inside the Statue of Liberty, you know. Because that's totally normal.
WHERE: Inside the Statue of Liberty, obviously!
WHEN: 11/07/18, around nightfall.
RATING: Not too high.
When David was a kid, he'd always wanted to come to the Statue of Liberty. As a matter of fact, it was number three on his "list." The list, of course, being his list of "prime, ghost hunting territory." The Eiffel Tower had been atop the list before everything went to hell. He'd been planning a trip, planning on dragging Eli there with him one day (and of course he'd been planning on making sure to pick up an extra EMF detector for his older brother), but he never really got that chance. It was one of his biggest regrets. Well… that and ever getting on that stupid bus to go to the veterinary seminar back when this all started.
Since the quarantine on Liberty Island was lifted, David had hoped that maybe he'd hear something from one of his family members. He couldn't help but wonder if they were okay, if they were… No. No, they're not. Just because they're not here doesn't mean that they're… maybe they just can't find someone to take them. Like you. Or maybe they just… don't know you're here. They're not… they're just… not.
Shaking off the negativity, David glanced at his EMF detector. Nothing. Really? A place like this had nothing? A place with so much history, so much stuff that had happened… and his readings were showing nothing.
Well, that won't do, he thought, shaking his head no. He knew there was something here. There had to be. He just knew it. It was the Statue of freaking Liberty. The symbol of what America used to stand for. If it wasn't haunted by something, well… there was just no chance of that, was there? I need to get higher, that's all. The crown's where all the magic really happens, he thought, continuing to ascend the stairs.
It was an awful strenuous climb, of course, and David had known that going in, but it was worth it. He needed to know. Needed to find out if – no, no, not if… that – there was something up there. Taking a drink from his water bottle, he took a breath and continued his climb, glancing down at the EMF reader every once in awhile.
