"ooooh?" the ghost moans. "GOOD TIPS. ALL VERY GOOD TIPS. I AM ALSO SCARED OF CLOWNS BUT MAYBE SPIDERS ARE GOOD. I CAN MAKE IT LOOK LIKE SPIDERS ARE POURING FROM MY MOUTH AND EARS? I THINK THAT IS GOOD. GERTRUDE WOULDN'T THINK OF THAT! HER THING IS MICE. BUT MICE ARE SO SHY AND FURRY. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE ARE SCARED."
Another pause. The ghostly figure sways thoughtfully in place.
"THANK-YOU. I THINK I SHOULD PLAY TO MY STRENGTHS. GERTRUDE IS GOOD AT TENSION. BUT I CAN DO ILLUSIONS AND SHE CAN'T. JUST NEED TO WAIT FOR SOMEONE TO SCARE. AND THEN. IF I SCARE THEM BETTER THAN GERTRUDE I AM CONTENT. WITH THE SPIDERS AND THE SOUND OF PHONES. AND REMINDING THEM THAT ANY DAY COULD BE THEIR LAST. THIS LAST ONE IS VERY GOOD."
It nods towards the door leading further into the house.
"GERTRUDE LIVES IN THAT NEXT ROOM. IF SHE HEARS ME GIVE SOMEBODY AN EXCELLENT SCARE, SHE WILL BE SO JEALOUS. I CAN LEAVE KNOWING SHE WILL NEVER AGAIN HAVE A CHANCE TO LAUD HER SPOOKINESS OVER ME. THEN I WILL FOLLOW YOU TO THIS MONEY-GRABBING NEW HAUNTING SPACE. I THINK IT WOULD BE NICE TO HAUNT A DEEP FRIAR MAYBE. OR MAYBE A CASH REGISTER HAHAHAHA."
"Sounds like a perfect plan! Those sound like excellent places to haunt; you could really get creative with either of those. And yes, I think you should play to your strength; you can get really creative with illusions; make people think the worst! But yes, sounds like we need to really scare someone so we can show Gertrude what for! But who...?"
The mage ponders. "Well, I kinda already know your plan, so maybe we should try it on someone not so knowledgeable. Listen, I write, so I have a few characters of my own creation. Want me to bring one in when you're ready? It'll probably be an adult, just so you know; don't want her to think it's too easy."
