Last night at the church Halloween party, this guy showed up wearing a Jurgensen jersey and weird make up.
He had a ghost story to tell.
He came equipped with his own candle and insisted on the lights being turned out. He said "fire summons fear."
The story was very real, too real in fact. It involved the Civil War battlefield nearby, a house called the Old Faithful Inn, and a young lady named Abigail.
It seems his tale is not a ghost "story." It is still happening every new moon.
And the "story" really is scary! And plausible.
Truly, I believe it's still going on.
After the story concluded, just as the kids thought it was over, a strange thing happened.
Abigail came for him.
Obviously possessed, his voice changed, he became stiff and then uncontrolled, and foam came from his mouth.
Yes, the foam was real because nobody saw him put anything into his mouth! Nobody, and the room was full. He coughed and gagged, spewing big, bubbly foam!
The possession must have been real too.
Usually, at midnight and the night of the new moon, this shadowy visitor goes to Abigail's house (which is only a stone foundation at this point).
This time Abigail came for him instead.
He loves her.
Great hair, by the way! I hear some kids are back to wetting their beds again. Oh well...
