Colleague M has passed on the latest news on her sister Lydia’s ghosts. The start of the story is here.
Lydia was still worried about the argumentative ghosts that are haunting her house, according to the psychic she brought in last week. She was settling down, though, and her sleep was getting easier again. Until the other night, that is.
Her daughter – who hasn’t been told about the possible ghosts – had gone away for a couple of days to visit her grandparents, and was phoning home before bedtime. They were chatting away as normal, when the daughter said:
“Who’s that talking with you?”
Lydia had the telly on; she turned the sound off. “There’s noone here,” she said, “it must have been the TV. Can you still hear them?”
“I can still hear them, Mummy,” she said.
Lydia looked around: she definitely couldn’t hear anything herself. “What do they sound like?”
“It sounds like a man and a woman, arguing.”
So now, of course, Lydia is terrified again.
