The Ways of Ghosts

They do what they can to communicate with us. It ain’t easy, since there’s a gulf between this world and that one.

Hot and cold. That’s how you know. A spot in the room that always makes your gooseflesh prickle up.

Sometimes there’ll be a smell. Cigarettes when nobody ‘s smoking, or a trace of perfume.

Worst is when they get hornets to build a nest. Then they stir┬áthem up, see. Get them riled so’s they come after you. You might be able to ignore the sound of chains in the attic, but nobody can ignore a hornet’s sting.

  1. Smack! Ouch! Damn, hornets, again! Hey, you got any ghost repellent handy… preferably something with some hornet poison included! Great story! couldn’t resist a little humor!

Whatever.
