Here is another tale of the supernatural for Halloween:
Mermaid and I got acquainted with “Casper” when we moved into an 850 sq ft, 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment with his younger brothers. I am not sure if my brothers-in-law ever experienced anything out of the ordinary, but my Mermaid and I sure did.
I was the first one to encounter the ghost my spouse and I jokingly named, “Casper.”
It was in the middle of the day. I was laying in bed, playing Tetris on my phone when I heard the toilet in the master bedroom flush. I thought, “That’s weird. I’ve been lazying around for an hour, when did Mr. Mermaid go into the bathroom?”
“My Honey?” I shouted out. No answer.
No one came out. Strange, I thought. What is he still doing in the bathroom? And then I felt a chill and the hair on my body stood up. I quickly closed my eyes and pretended to sleep. I felt a presence in my bedroom. My body was trembling with fear as I sensed its eyes on me.
What am I going to do? I thought to myself. I can’t stay like this until this thing leaves. What if it doesn’t leave?
I gathered all my courage and ran out the bedroom. I was so relieved to see Mermaid on the couch watching TV. I told him what happened. He didn’t believe me, but he would start soon enough…
