Pirate Cave Ghost, Part 4
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Trevor began pulling some of the cobwebs off his friend. He picked at the bits and then held up a single gossamer strand.
 
2     "Look at this," he said. "It's not web, it's a fine strand of fishing line. I think someone might be trying to scare us."
 
3     "I'll go in again, if you will," said Marco.
 
4     The boys retraced their steps into the cave once more. They carefully stepped around the last corner and saw only darkness.
 
5     "Where did it go?" Marco whispered to Trevor.
 
6     "I don't know, but I think that fishing line was some kind of trigger. Feel around for more cobwebs," Trevor answered softly.
 
7     In just a few seconds the "ghost" appeared on the wall again. Trevor fought the urge to run. Then he put his hand in the air. A shadow appeared in the middle of the "ghost."
 
8     "How'd you do that?" asked Marco.
 
9     "Like this," Trevor waved his hand. Then he turned and stared at a small niche in the wall with his flashlight.
