Series: Part 3 of Psychic Case Files
Shawn’s next case is right up his supernatural alley – a possibly cursed necklace goes missing from the Santa Barbara Museum with no trace of who took it. Unfortunately, the Chief won’t let him on the case until he’s cleared by his therapist, his recently acquired psychic talent is doing him more harm than good, and he’s stumbled onto a new and dangerous world of weird while tracking the necklace.
Light flooded the room and they jumped up, screaming. They both scrambled over each other, pushing and shoving as they vaulted over the couch to cower behind it.
“What in the world are you boys doing?”
The familiarity of the voice brought Shawn’s head slowly out from behind the back of the couch. “Watching a movie.”
Henry Spencer took one look at the screen and groaned in disgust. “That’s not a movie, that’s trash.” He crossed the room in quick strides and flicked it off. “You shouldn’t be watching that filth.”
“Hey!” Outrage brought the two boys out from behind the couch. “We were watching that.”
“Not anymore.” Henry gave Shawn and Gus measuring stares. He took in the blankets clutched to their tiny frames and they way they stood close to each other. “Don’t tell me you’re actually scared by that drivel?”
Shawn’s blanket slipped from his shoulders as he put his hands on his hips. “It’s not drivel. We were learning about vampires.” The arch of Henry’s eyebrow told Shawn exactly what he thought of that. “How are we supposed to defend ourselves against them if we don’t study them?”
It should have been the perfect defense. It was right out of one of Henry’s police manuals. Shawn had seen it countless times – know your enemy, be prepared. Instead, Henry burst out laughing.
“Vampires aren’t real. None of that stuff is real. It’s all hokey tricks and fairy tales.”
