“Honey, we didn’t have a choice. I know this is sudden for all of us but Jun is going to have to get used to it, I am only sorry that I can’t help him as much as you can.” Mom shook her head and tightened her grip she had on her forearms.

“I don’t think I can help him. It’s gotten worse over the years Bruce. He’s passed my level now, I know he can see something in the hallway, we should have chosen the other house closer in town. Even if they would have been more judgmental at least Jun wouldn’t be going through this kind of hardship. It’s the worst when you’re a teen.” Mom sighed and Dad rubbed her arms.

“I know Honey, I know. We’ll get through this, I know we will. They were kind enough when they met us again; I think we will be okay.” I heard something crack in the darkness and I scrambled to flick the light switch only to find a branch sitting in the middle of the hall. I let out a sigh to find the same ghost from before hovering above it. He stepped down and it made a sickening crack sound, similar to a bone breaking. He smiled darkly and I lost it.

“Oh no you do not look at me like that you twisted freak! Listen here buddy, we talked earlier and if you don’t hold to your end of the deal I will exorcise you myself if I have to, I have done it before! Do not make me have to use my vast knowledge of bible verses against you, I want to work together harmoniously, not threaten or even kill, got it? I already live through hell now; I don’t need to do it permanently.” His eyes widened before he disappeared and I heard footsteps behind me. It was just Mom; I would have been worried if it had been Dad. 

The End
