Thank you to Alastair Forbes for hosting SPF August 13, 2017.
“Should we tell the police?”
“Tell them what?”
“About the ghost or zombie. What was he?”
Hank covered his face with his hands.”Not a ghost or zombie, Ted. Just a homeless guy.”
“Are you sure?”
“Yes, ghost’s aren’t solid and zombies aren’t real.”
“How do you know? Ever seen one? I did.”
“Trust me. You didn’t. This guy was pale but he was human. Angry too when you ran at him screaming.”
“I would remember doing that. I would’ve felt it.” Ted narrowed his eyes at his friend.
“Listen, I told you not to drink your Grandpa’s moonshine. One of these days he’s going to notice you’ve been stealing gulps.”
“The besides the point. The homeless guy was a creature not of this world. The police will believe me, Hank.”
“No, Ted, he won’t. Your ten, he’ll think your telling tall tales.”
“Hey, there’s the homeless guy coming out of the police phone booth,” Hank muttered.
“Let’s get him!”
“Stop. I think he called the police on you for badgering him.”
“Yeah, you attacked him. He wasn’t impressed with a drunk kid punching him. He was trying to sleep.”
“Where were you when I was fighting this monster?”
Hank laughed,”I was filming a video of you for YouTube. It’s a hit.”
