“Tell It Like It Is, Kid.”

“What the hell was that!” Helen demanded.

We’d both recoiled, whatever it was.

“Well I… I’ve no idea…”

A tiny, static-crackling, pitch-black orb

Had zoomed between us and exploded amidst a

Shower of sparks that briefly lit up the gloom.

“There it is!” Louisiana shrieked, pointing.

Helen, squinting into the near dark whispered,

“Oh yes, I see it, Darling… is it a speckley  bird?”

Louisiana’s toy camera clicked.

 “No! It’s the ghost of the fairy mermaid!

I told you she’d come back!”
