Krista Davis | The Legend of Becca Wraith

December 16, 2014

Krista DavisTHE GHOST AND MRS. MEWERIs there a ghost story from your youth that stands out in your mind? One that gave you chills? Maybe a local story or a traditional campfire tale?

Holly Miller is moving to Wagtail Mountain. She hasn’t given the tale of Becca Wraith any thought at all in years. When she was a kid, her cousin wouldn’t sleep alone after hearing the story, but Holly wasn’t scared. Now ghost hunters are arriving and checking into the Sugar Maple Inn where Holly works. They’re coming to research the legend of Becca Wraith.

Holly still doesn’t believe in ghosts, but most people in Wagtail do. It’s an old town where people used to come for the waters. Residents report seeing Becca’s ghost, as well as those of her ill-fated suitors, around town.

Holly isn’t worried. After all, it’s just a story. But as spooky things happen, Holly realizes there must have been some historical basis for the ghost story about Becca. Still, it’s all in good fun until someone is murdered, and Becca’s ghost was seen nearby.
