The Human Series (1) You can’t hide from your past forever, but it’s easier if you’re a foster kid in rural West Texas. Scott MacIntyre was different in more ways than even he knew. (this was my first attempt at writing a novel)

Sometimes, even when times are hard, an opportunity arises. Sometimes such an opportunity can lead to adventure and give up mysteries that beg to be solved. Sometimes the solving of those mysteries can bring riches, adventure and sometimes even more mystery. Sometimes we find romance in such adventures. Sometime we find answers to questions that we never asked. Meet Joe and let the adventure begin.
This is the continuation of the story begun in 101 Bell Whistle. Read that story first. This second book reveals even deeper mysteries and new discoveries made that reveal much about the house and previous occupants. Note: Chapter 3 of this story deals with the house's connection to slavery of the past century. In this chapter the N-word is used by a slave speaking of other slaves as did happen in actual accounts of the time. If this offends you then you may want to skip over this chapter.
