Yanking the covers over my head so hard that I almost disjointed my
shoulder, I held my breath and tuned into the I’m-clearly-a-ghost-scratching
sound outside my bedroom window. My lungs screamed for oxygen, and I
inhaled a deep breath of stale hot air. Suddenly, the discounted price on my
new rental house made so much more sense. I had suspected something like
this since it was an older neighborhood. Not only a little old, but we’re
talking colonial times. That’s what the realtor called this house. A colonial.
All I saw was thirteen hundred dollars a month rent in a city where nothing
was under two thousand. I signed on the line so fast that I practically left a
smoke trail behind my pen.
This was my year of saving money, as I did whatever I could to cut
corners. If I did the mathing correctly, at the end of next year I could pay off
all my debt. All my student loans, plus the credit card debt I had acquired
after unexpectedly losing my middle-school teaching job last spring.

and I could use an escort for my work Christmas party.

had listened to this podcast where the dude said to repeat what you want to
be. I’d been doing it for almost a year now, and bad things kept happening.
It clearly wasn’t working, but I was terrified of stopping. What if it got
worse? “Oh, and rich,” I added.
“I heard you!” I forced a brave voice as I peeled back my blanket,
peeking out. “I know you’re here, but I’m trying to sleep. You can cut it out
Tapping my finger to my chin, I mused. He’s clearly a male ghost
because he’s pretending not to hear me.
Maybe I’ll have a closer look.
I eased one foot off the bed, softly hitting the bare wood floor, and gently
shifted my weight onto that leg, careful to not make a peep. Not sure why I
was worried about disturbing mister-clamorous-hot-invisible dude when he
obviously wasn’t worried about his noise level.
Casing the four hundred square foot studio apartment, which was my part
of the house, for a weapon, I settled on the broom stowed in the closet. Now
to make my legs carry me across the room. I eased one foot before the
