Camp-out Ghost Story
By Brenda B. Covert

1     The sky grew dark. Fog hung over the lake. Gray smoke from the fire floated into the trees. Jay and Kayla sat and waited.
2     "Okay, kids," Dad said. "It is time for a ghost story!" 
3     "I hope it is scary!" Jay said.
4     "There were two children, a boy and a girl," Dad began.
5     "I bet that is us," Kayla said to Jay.
6     "Shhhh," their father said. Then he told this story.
7     The brother and sister had a camp-out. They were going to fish. They had to dig for worms.
8     They dug up a can. In the can, they found a card. The boy looked at it.
9     "Let me see!" said his sister. "What is it?"
10     "I think it is a joke," he said. He saw a map on the card. Good luck awaited the one who tracked the clues.
11     "We can try it!" the girl said. "Maybe it will be lucky!"
