The Virgin Ghostess
by Ogunsola Ayobami Samuel
I am a ghost. A virgin ghost at that. The ghost with the most bitter grudge of all ghost. Imagine how painful it must have been to die as a virgin, to decline the heavens invitation and roam around this other world. I am known as the ill-natured libertine queen of the ghost world. But I wish to be understood. I’m a pitiful love song, a soul full of regrets. And I’m so very bored
Gosh! This is depressing. I should find some funeral food and get some energy.
Kate works at a restaurant owned by julius. She is always sleeping 😴 at work because the ghosts who appeared to her at night won’t let her sleep since she could see them and they keep coming to her. She was always scold by julius because of her sleeping attitude at work telling her to take her work seriously or she can just quit working at his restaurant. With all the scolding she receives, Mike the assistant cook would also add his because he thinks julius is always taking out his anger on him because of her mistakes. But her other colleagues and Lisa julius’s sister are always supportive to her.
Despite all the amulets given to her by her grandmother who is a shaman to shove the ghosts away from her vicinity seems abortive as she keeps attracting more ghost.
Julius mother who is a professor at a University is always pestering julius to get married and she is always bringing amulets for him to keep with him because she was told that alot of ghosts are attached to his destiny.
Julia at the funeral met other ghosts who also came to eat funeral food. She sat with them and as she was eating she was scold by Louis for always possessing innocents women in order to sleep with men. As they were eating and discussing, Mrs Jane was spotted and they all stood up and ran out of the funeral hall except Julia who was carried away by her meal. When she finally saw Mrs Jane it was to late for her to escape so she was chased around by Mrs Jane who was trying to capture her. The people who were around were surprised to see Mrs Jane running and talking to herself, many thought she was mad. As Julia was running away from her she was looking looking for a perfect body to hide so she won’t be captured by Mrs Jane.
She finally found a body to possess but she couldn’t stay long in the body before she came out and she was captured by Mrs Jane who was dragging her by her hair but the people around were shocked seeing how Mrs Jane was acting.
On getting to Mrs Jane’s place a bell was tied around her neck by Mrs Jane so she could easily locate her whenever she tries to escape from her.
Kate at work again made another mistake which made julius to react when a woman who tried to insult Lisa when she saw her sitting on a wheel chair. Julius was angry and dragged the woman out of his restaurant. Kate apologised to julius saying she would be more careful afterwards.
After closing from work that night, when she got home she was sent packing out of her resident then she decided to quit her work at the restaurant so she returned back to the restaurant to drop a note on the table.
The next day, when Lisa got to work she saw the note on the table and showed it to julius who said she couldn’t even say goodbye. But he had to sent one of the staff to look for her when it was discovered that the key to the store room was with her.
