~~Simon didn’t believe in such nonsense until he came face to face with it one day. There was a ghost in his bedroom and she wouldn’t leave him alone. He’d heard of women holding a grudge but this was something else.

It wasn’t even like they’d dated that long, a couple of drinks and a trip to the cinema. And he’d paid for everything. It was only that Suzy, the fittest girl in the office, had asked him out and she wasn’t the kind of girl you turned down. It wasn’t his fault that the same day he’d dumped her she’d been hit by that car and now she was in his bed; picking out his clothes and telling him to make sure he wasn’t back to late.

Worst of all he wasn’t even sure she knew she was dead, the fact she was transparent and never needed to sleep didn’t seem to cross her mind. He tried dropping subtle hints suggesting she had something to eat or looked in a mirror but she merely changed the subject.

What was more annoying was that no one else could see or hear her. The lads had laughed hysterically at him; his mum had suggested a trip to the doctors. Maybe he was mad, but even he believed he would make up something more interesting. She wasn’t even covered in blood!

Ignoring her wasn’t working she just got louder. She even managed to constantly send text messages to his phone when he was out. Fed up and frustrated he decided to just confront her, what’s the worst that could happen?

He sat down on his king size bed and put his arms around her. Looking sweetly into her eyes he said softly ‘we need to talk’. She looked up at him with her puppy dog eyes and asked whatever would they need to talk about? ‘You’re dead’ he replied very bluntly. ‘Don’t be so silly darling your being weird’ she giggled and looked away.

She knew fine well she was dead but there was no way she was letting him know she knew. She grabbed his arm and said sweetly ‘don’t be too late tonight my darling’.
