Excerpt from Comes a Specter by Keta Diablo (A Ghostland Novella). Hope, like me, you LUV ghost stories.

     Sutter stood before Anya, a rifle cradled in his arms. He had the look of a heathen—long, midnight hair that hugged the collar of his white shirt, olive skin and eyes the color of grey smoke. Tall and well muscled, he looked a little older, but remained as magnificent as ever—as she remembered, as she had dreamed so many nights. He'd always smelled like a wild northern wind. If she closed her eyes right now, she could call forth that luscious memory, or beg the light breeze to bring it to her.
His rich, low voice broke into her daydreams. "You're not welcome here, Anya... or should I say Mrs. Fleming?"
Long seconds passed before she recovered her senses. "Do you think I'd be here, Sutter, if I weren't desperate?"
He didn't correct the use of his white name. "You have a husband; go to him if you're desperate."
"Lewis is dead."
If she had meant to shock him, she had failed. The muscles of his face remained immobile, and his eyes normally expressive eyes betrayed nothing. 
"He hung himself in the barn several months back."
"Is this where I'm supposed to tell you how sorry I am?"
"Guess not." Shoulders squared, her chin came out. "That might be asking too much of your cold, black heart."
"What do you want, Anya?" With a toss of his head, he indicated his growing impatience. "Why are you here?"
Under her breath, she added, "And I'm certain I'll find Lewis crawling back into his grave one morning."
"You're rambling, Anya. I don't know what about and I don't care. Let me ask again: What do you want?"
Pretense at this point was pointless. "My son is gravely ill."
"Humph. If my son were sick, I'd have ridden towards Butte for the nearest doctor."
"Doctor Metz is a drunkard and I could ride here faster."
"Pity, that," he said with a roll of those smoky eyes.
"You could help him, Sutter. If I ever meant anything to you—"
"Don't go there." He put a hand in the air. "That's a long time ago, a time I don't like to revisit."
Tears brimmed in her eyes, and for the first time since she'd ridden in, she saw a spark of something in his eyes.
"What's wrong with the boy?"
She shrugged. "I don't… don't know. Willie-boy hasn't spoken a word since he found his father hanging in the barn."
His eyebrows came up. "Willie-boy?"
"William, but I've always called him Willie-boy. I suppose it's silly…." Her voice trailed off as she held his eyes.
"Go away, Anya." He shuffled back into the cabin, his moccasins missing the creaky plank that had warned her of his presence. He called out over his shoulder, "I don't help white-eyes."
