This week’s Story Starter teaser is:
I heard a voice calling out my name from inside the house, and when I opened the door, a wraith in the form of my dad came floating inside! I was just getting my breath back when it started to speak with my dad’s voice!
“Sorry to bother, son, but I seem to have lost my way. Do you still have that compass I gave you when you were ten?”
I couldn’t speak, unable to move. My dad’s ghost slipped past me and sat down at the kitchen table. “I didn’t mean to startle you, I guess I can be a bit of a shock. And I don’t want to monopolize your time, but I really need that compass.”
“Uh, is it really you, dad? You look sort of filmy.”
“Well after being buried and then living “on the other side”, it’s what happens. No worries, son, I’m fine. I just need the compass to guide me. We’re all meeting Halloween night in the Hoia Baciu forest, and I haven’t a clue how to get there.”
I went up to the attic and retrieved the item. I tried to give my dad a hug before he left, but he was just a foggy mist.
