As Charlie walks away down the dirt road he notices a small machine behind the cottage. He mumbles to himself "well now, this is may get interesting."
Charlie looks over Angus's shoulder and note of a pair of sneakers on the floor. "oh, you a runner Mr Donaldson?”
Angus shakes his head "na, not me. I am too busy working this land. Why do you ask?'
Charlie smiles "I see lots of sneaker prints about. Anyway I will be off. I am sure we will be in touch Mr Donaldson."
Angus gives him a confused look "yeah maybe."
Charlie smiles back in a manner that he hopes sets Angus at ease "well now I am Officer Richards up from Fort William."
Angus nods "well now I have heard of you from a mate of mind. I am Angus, Angus Donaldson. What brings you up here officer?"
Charlie chuckles a bit as if he thinks this is all a joke "well now you may not believe this but I am searching for ghosts."
Angus looks surprised "Ghosts, no kidding?"
Charlie nods "why yes ghosts. Now you know we in the local constabulary don't believe such things but I just received a report from a visitor from overseas, a Canadian, who is certain she saw two milling about the castle ruins nearby.."
Angus laughs a bit "well you don't say. She must have been seeing things. Hey you say a Canadian. Not that Sarah Burton girl up at Sir Jonathan's castle?"
Charlie nods "Well now that would be the girl. Well not quite a girl. I understand she is about to turn nineteen. But she is youngish and petite."
Angus nods in agreement and smiles "yes she is fetching. Nice legs and cute tities."
Charlie now frowns "now, now we are gentlemen aren't we? Anyway this is not the first time a hiker reported spooks hanging about the castle ruins. You live so close, have you seen any up there?"
Angus laughs again "na, I never seen no spooks up there. You know I maintain the grounds on this property and make sure hunters keep away so I am up there all the time."
Charlie looks interested "you work for Sir Jonathan Burton then?"
Angus nods "yep and I worked for Macdonough too when I was a boy. My pa died in the explosion up there."
Charlie looks surprised "an explosion. I only knew of a fire. What caused the explosion?"
Angus shrugs and looks sad "all I know is my pa died in it and his brother nearly did too. He and I worked on the land ever since. Now officer is there anything else?'
Charlie shakes his head "well I suppose not Mr. Donaldson. If you think of anything, please let me know? You can contact me in town."
