I was a new home owner. At the age of twenty seven this was probably the biggest thing to ever happen to me. No mortgage either. A full on home owner. I had gotten it for super cheap because apparently the previous owner had some sort of psychotic breakdown and then died in the front lawn from a heart attack. He had been screaming something about ghosts according to the realtor. I figured I would buy some sage, call my spiritual friend over, maybe hire a professional to cleanse the house. It's not that I'm scared of ghosts but I'd rather not live with one either.
What is that?
Teeth chattering, knees shaking The wind howling, my boots are quaking No one here but me Or at least so I think
What is a soul? A boundless mass of energy That encapsulates everything we are Of this life and however many before

This story was written as a direct sequel to "A Demon for Halloween". With that I'm going to post a link to that story because otherwise this one doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
I can create
Mind running away Feet stay in place Open mouth but nothing Eyes widening ~ One thought, two thought
The things I imagine
Floorboards creaking Wind howling Faucet dripping The things I here late at night ~ Is that someone stepping in my home
Chameleon by choice Star when I can Blend into the crowd Stand out against it all ~ Head down, eyes half closed
I looked down at the readings on my console. This couldn't be right. The scientists had all but guaranteed us when we left Earth that there was no life on this planet nor should there be by the time we arrived. I guess technically that isn't true. They made that promise to people several generations ago. But whenever a new generation was born and eventually got to the point of taking over the ship we watched the video that told us that same speel. The video was filmed when the first generation of people on this ship left Earth. Since then over three hundred generations of people have watched it while they went to a planet that was thirty thousand light years away. It had taken us thirty thousand years since we could only travel the speed of light.
