Nick didn’t know, at first.
Originally, he wondered why things moved without warning. He explained that by draughts: the old house he’d recently moved into was full of them. But the footsteps on the stairs? He couldn’t really explain those, though the menacing whisperings in the bedroom were probably just draughts, too.
Yes, Nick had realised some time ago that he’d bought a haunted house. Ever since he’d walked into his bedroom and found his body dead on the floor.
What he didn’t know was just how many ghosts there were. And why they whispered such terrible things about him.
