Little Diddy About Nick and Kirsten

Today started out like every other day. Silently, I floated around, bored with the loneliness of this giant house that I'd chosen to haunt. 
 
Haunt makes it sound so bad. I don't really "haunt" it. I co-exist with the residents that live here and often help by picking up something that has fallen or locating something they've lost and put it in an obvious place so they can see it, ya know, helpful things like that. I don't rattle chains or slam doors or open all of the cabinets. That last one is actually a HUGE pet peeve of mine. I usually go behind them and close the cabinets for them. 

Anyway, there I was, putting the woman's keys back on the key holder (for the umpteenth time) when I hear a door slam upstairs. I know the woman is the only one in the house and she is currently out in the garage, searching for said keys. Curious, I float up toward the direction of the noise and stop dead (heh) in my tracks.

Standing next to the attic door is the most handsome ghost I've ever seen. EVER! I floated over to him and asked him why he was slamming the doors. Evidently, he went to the wrong How to be a Good Ghost seminar and he thought he was doing this whole haunt thing the right way.

How precious.

I quickly informed him that those "seminars" are actually asshole ghosts that are trying to get new ghosts to be assholes too. They should really make a club or something. Undead Asshole Society.....nice ring to it.

I ask him his name and find out it is Nicholas Von Achosenstien and that he was from Germany. How he ended up here in London, I'll never know. He died while cooking, slipping on an egg that had fallen and hitting his head on the corner of the counter. One hit and BAM! Light outs. I told him my name was Kirsten Beaverhausen and that I found myself in my current condition due to a spider. Yes.....a spider killed me. I was showering and saw a spider. I jumped, slipped and was knocked unconscious, unfortunately with my head under the sprayer. What a way to go, huh? I died and that stupid spider is still roaming around my home.

Nick and I decided that I was going to show him the finer points of being a ghost. So, we left the house and floated around. We went to the movies and spent the day watching all the new releases (except for the new Mission Impossible....I can't stand Tom Cruise OR his teeth). We people watched. We talked while floating around on a big houseboat. We saw a play, went to a local fair, saw a couple of concerts.

It was the absolute best day of my undead life.

We made our way back to what we were calling our house now. Nick gave me a ghost kiss on the cheek and thanked me for an awesome day. He waited on the steps while I went insides and down to the basement, which is my "room". Then he came in and went to the attic...his "room".

This was 5 years ago. Nick and I still live in the same house, only we both live in the attic. New people own it now and we are just as helpful as we were before. Nick proposed to me at a concert and, of course I said yes. We are busy planning out ghostly wedding and unliving happily ever after.

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week 16 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts. 

My subject was "Write a story about two ghosts on a first date" and it was submitted by Climaxed. Thanks, chick! I hope I did it justice!

Here are links to all the sites now featuring Secret Subject Swap posts.  Sit back, grab a cup, and check them all out. See you there:

  7. This has to be the strangest prompt I've ever seen, but it's too awesome. I'm glad ghosts hate Tom Cruise (and his teeth) as much as I do. Well done.
