Ever since I found out I was a witch, a Wishcrafter, and moved to the Enchanted Village –a neighborhood of Salem, Massachusetts, my life has changed drastically. Never mind all the witchy stuff. Oh no. That’s the least of my concerns these days. The bigger problem is my newfound ability to find dead bodies. There have been several murders since I’ve arrived (coincidental, I swear), and I’ve managed to play a role in solving them all.
The most recent homicide, however, came with a bit of an issue…
The dead man, an Illumicrafter, “imprinted” on me. Meaning…his ghost attached to me until I figure out who killed him. Talk about pressure.
So here are my five tips to know whether you’re being haunted…
- You suddenly feel like there’s a physical presence surrounding you. But you can’t see anyone. It’s like a literal weight on your shoulders.
- You talk aloud in an empty room (or car) and get a response—in my case, my imprinter communicated through glowing (Illumicrafters are like human Glo Worms).
- The creepy insistent nudging you feel guiding you in certain directions isn’t just your overactive imagination.
- You walk bump into an invisible mass of goo and realize your ghostly friend is hot. Burning hot. Literally.
- You start to feel overly-attached to your “imaginary” friend.
I can’t say being haunted was the worst experience, especially not after–well, I won’t ruin it for you. Let’s just say that being haunted has its benefits…
