THE DISMAL FAILURE by P.S. Joshi
I came back. Too lazy to make a will, I died and my worthless nephew, Buster, got my money and house. Warned by the Higher Power not to seek revenge or I couldn’t move on, I didn’t listen. In this unfinished attic, I’ve planned that revenge.
I’ve been a dismal failure. Buster didn’t hear the many howls or the chains since he’s a sound sleeper. He was thrilled about the skate on the stairs since he thought he’d lost it. Multiple sightings didn’t bother him because he thought he’d hallucinated. Really sorry now, I’ve asked just to move on. Please.
