Do You Believe in Ghosts? Tuesday Tale

Ahoy Fellow Fathomers! Happy Tuesday and time for another edition of Tuesday Tales. This week I take you again to my new paranormal thriller WIP, Blue Ink-the Skin Stalker For our journey to the unknown, I present the word prompt "ghost".



“What the hell?” Sascha’s mate uttered fearfully.
“It’s just the wind, Maria. Go back to sleep.” Sascha urged as she rubbed her lover’s shoulders.
“Why am I burning? Look at these spots on my stomach.” Maria bent forward to examine herself. “The wind didn’t do this.”
“I’ve got them too. Maybe they are spider bites?” Sascha offered disdainfully.
“I’ve had spider bites, this is not the same thing. These are burns, like someone dropped acid or hot coals on us.”
“I’ll go check out the living room.” Sascha exited the bed, pulling a shirt over her head.
“I’m going too.” Maria got up and together they crept toward their bedroom door.
Sascha grabbed the doorknob and reluctantly began turning it before a force twisted the knob and blew the door back open, knocking the two of them backwards. Screaming, they clutched each other briefly, gathering their composure.
“What are we supposed to do now?” Maria almost cried.
Maria’s fear kindled Sascha’s protective instincts. “I’m going to go see what’s out there. This is crap!”
Sascha grabbed a softball bat and almost ran into the other room. “Whoever you are, you better be ready for me!”
The stench of body odor and rotten eggs filled the living area, gagging Sascha momentarily. Yet, the room was undeniably quiet and empty. She searched the kitchen, bathroom, closets, and every conceivable hiding place. “Maria, no one is here.” She called out, relief apparent in her voice.
Maria slowly made her way into the front living area. “This apartment belongs on that ghost hunter show on TV. I think it’s haunted, or we’re crazy.”
“I’ll make some coffee and we will think this through. Everything has a plausible explanation, I know we will find it.” Sascha attempted to comfort her dubious girlfriend.
They never discovered a plausible explanation."
