Recently the rather spoiled son of a local duke announced that he was going to be my apprentice. This came as a surprise to me, as was his announcement that his initial outing would be to interview a ghost, thus making history with his first story.
Here is the complete transcript of his interview.
“Greetings, ghost. How are you?”
“I’m dead. And it’s Sir Ghost to you. I am – or was – a knight.”
“Indeed. Of course. How insensitive of me. Tell me Sir Ghost, what did you do before you became a ghost?”
“I used to be a writer.”
“So now you’re a ghost writer?”
For some reason the interview appears to have been discontinued at this point. The interview notes were sent to me by a person or persons unknown, and the reporter who conducted the interview has disappeared without trace.
