"Good evening, my ghostly friend!" Master Shou called as he entered the room. The spectral figure, lying on the bed, silently tipped its hat towards him in response.
"I've done a round of the town and had a word with a few of the locals", Shou continued. "I believe I've identified our first 'client'. There's a grand lady known as Old Marge, keeps herself locked away in her manor, surrounded by mountains of wealth".
The ghostly figure shifted to a sitting position, listening intently.
"I'll give you the address, Mr Haint, and then you can get to work. After a couple of nights of your performances I feel she'll be more than willing to employ me to bring balance to her home and 'banish' the evil spirits. If by bringing balance I also have to 'banish' a few ornaments and artworks that will fetch a decent price, then all the better. There are plenty of folks in this town that are struggling, and I'm sure they'd appreciate a little help".
The Haint smiled as he listened to the directions. Working with Shou had turned out to be a lot of fun. He faded from view as he walked towards the door. Tonight was ripe for mischief.
