The Ghosts of Generation X #3


The spirit of a woman in a dressing gown is often seen at the doorway of the crematorium. It is believed she died getting a crust from the toaster with a fork. She has returned to the chapel, as it was here, aged 19 and going through a bit of a goth phase, she had come to her grandfather's funeral. Her make up and outfit suddenly seemed entirely innappropriate and she refused to go into the service. Afterwards she rowed with her mum but it was the look of pity on her grandmother's face that prompted a lifetime of regret.

    Dressed like a goth it’s a wonder she didn’t frighten the life out of granny too. Might have got a deal though, burn one, burn one free.
