After many complaints by concerned neighbors, of strange noises coming from inside Pont-Ferrier Manor, priest Jean-Marc Van Luc gave the place a visit last month with his trusted bible and holy water, while also wearing a cross and a diaper, "in case anything too spooky was to happen".

However, the exorcism took a surprising twist when the ghost hastily flew downstairs, and gave the priest a "passionate, steamy kiss on the lips," as he puts it. What began as a spiritual ritual ended in a romantic embrace.

"I was just lonely," said Yann Febrier, spirit of the hopelessly romantic 17th century locksmith. "It was hard to get some back then, especially with all those blasted plagues."

The pair was later seen enjoying a candlelit dinner at Pizza Zippa, a renowned Italian restaurant, and taking a midnight walk on Santa Clausia beach. Locals quickly became curious about the fate of this eerie couple.

"I don't know if I'm ready for a commitment..." said Van Luc.” His tongue techniques are definitely enticing, but I really think we should take things slow."

"I really want us to take the next step someday. Call me too amorous, but I can hardly wait. I've dreamt about this day for... how many years are in 4 centuries?" said Yann, trying to do the calculus on his nine fingers.

Here at Yesterday News, we will keep you updated on this budding romance. Will the relationship crash and burn, or will their love be one to die for?
