A Spirited Welcome

Updated: Feb 29, 2020

The Haunted Writer #1 - A Spirited Welcome


Me: Greetings! My name is Tara Theresa Hill. This is my blog, The Haunted Writer. Allow me to introduce you to Leo. He’s my muse/spirit guide. He helps keep me motivated and troubleshoots ideas with me.


(I look over at Leo sitting in his chair by my writing desk. Leo stays silent. I clear my throat.)


Me: Ahem.

Leo: What?

Me: Aren’t you going to say hello to everyone?

Leo: (Rolls his eyes) Do I really have to?

Me: Yes...

Leo: Why?

Me: (Sighing) We talked about this. You have to be properly introduced to the reader. I can’t just drop you into the blog out of nowhere. It wouldn’t make sense.

Leo: Alright. If it will make you happy, I’ll do it. (Gives a short wave) Hi.

Me: (Disgruntled noise)

Leo: What’s the matter now?

Me: Oh, nothing. I just thought that your entrance would be more dramatic. That’s all.

Leo: (Says nothing. Looks at me askance and then disappears.)

Me: (Swiveling around in my desk chair) Leo? Leo, where did you go?



(Suddenly the room is plunged into complete darkness. Bells start ringing nonstop throughout the house as my cat shrieks and scampers behind the couch. A bright blue ball of light shoots into the room. The blue light bounces on and off the walls and ceiling. Then it leaps into the center of the room and begins to spin rapidly, forming a human-like shape. A tremendous wind picks up, whipping my hair back. Objects start to fly off the shelves. I hold up my hands.)


Me: Okay, okay. Enough already! I think they get the point.

(The lights immediately come back on and everything is back to normal.)

Leo: (Reappears in his chair and smirks at me) Dramatic enough for you?
