Bailey's mom and older sister, Trina, ran up the steps. A herd of beautiful elk thundered across the lawn of the old hotel. Within seconds, only a cloud of dust and an unnatural silence remained. Moments earlier Bailey's greatest fear was of the historic Stanley Hotel itself. Nestled in the majestic Rocky Mountains in Estes Park, Colorado, it had stared menacingly at Bailey, each window a glaring eye, as her family drove up and parked.
Its deathly white walls and blood-red tile roof eerily reminded her of the ghosts rumored to live in it. The bright sun hid behind clouds on this early October afternoon. Bailey swallowed hard, her dark brown almond eyes wide. In her nine years, she had never stayed in a haunted hotel. Nor had she almost been trampled by a stampeding herd of elk. I'm sure that stampede was merely a fluke.
Bailey looked at her eleven-year-old friend, Kate Oliver. Kate's eyes were as big as twin full moons behind her black, rectangular glasses.
She nervously tucked her sandy, shoulder-length hair behind her ears. Biscuit the Wonder Dog whined and hid behind Kate's leg.
Though Biscuit lived with Kate, he still took part in some of the girls' mysteries. Chang's hands rested firmly on her hips, her blond head tilted. They're pretty picky about where we sleep.

Kate looked over a pamphlet for the hotel that she'd picked up at the Denver, Colorado, airport. She grinned at Bailey and grabbed Biscuit. With the stampede over, Bailey's family returned to unloading their Honda CR-V in front of the hotel. Let's go get checked in," Mr. Chang said, starting toward the main entrance. The huge front porch seemed friendly enough, Bailey thought, now that she didn't need to escape from rampaging elk.
Cushioned white wicker rocking chairs, love seats, and tables sat waiting for people to relax in their comfort. Maybe it won't be so bad.
Bailey took a deep breath and stepped through the doorway. Bailey smelled old wood and lemon oil as she entered the magnificent lobby, pulling her pink camouflage suitcase. Gleaming hardwood floors reflected her awestruck face. She was so busy looking around that she nearly ran into an enormous flower bouquet on a round, glass-topped table. A wide, grand staircase with a white banister and glossy-wood handrail invited—or dared—guests to go upstairs and explore ghostly nooks and crannies.
On each end of the lobby overstuffed couches and chairs rested on large area rugs in front of fireplaces. An old green car with yellow wooden wheels in mint condition stood on display near one of the fireplaces, protected by thick red velvet ropes.tavalemuser.gq
