"Yes. I can't overstate how good it is to have you here, Makoto."

Permalink

Makoto smiles.

Permalink

She goes to say something else, and then there's a bang and a whoosh from the house she'd been watching, and a flickering in the window.

Permalink

"Was that the poltergeist?"

Permalink

"Likely so."

Permalink

"Should I go check it out?"

Permalink

"That'd be helpful - I'm going to call the family, see if I can't wake them, I don't like that light - "

Permalink

Makoto goes over to the house.

Permalink

The poltergeist slams multiple drawers open and starts flinging the silverware around.

(He's so fucking angry! ARGH!)

Permalink

That's, uh, straightforward. How about we try less angry, more calm.

Permalink

Anger! Confusion! Slightly lower anger! Very intense confusion!

The silverware clatters to the floor.

Permalink

Makoto shows her face at the window.

Hello?

Permalink

There's a sort of shimmer in the air, a whip of dust around a humanoid body.

'Who are you?!?!'

Permalink

My name is Makoto. I'm here to help.

Permalink

Flash of anger and hate. 'I don't need help! I need them to GO AWAY!'

Permalink

Who needs to go away?

Permalink

'Everyone!!! The people!!! They don't BELONG HERE!!!'

Permalink

She brushes the emotions lightly. Gentle, calm. Small voice, small baby bird. Rage is an emotion best come down from slowly. It's too unpredictable, and can spike back unexpectedly.

Why not?

Permalink

The poltergeist is really stumped by that!

'They weren't here???'

Permalink

Soothe soothe.

When weren't they here?

Permalink

The ghost is increasingly confused and kind of lost. '...Before. I. Don't - '

Permalink

It's okay. Do you want to come out and talk about it?

Permalink

'...Maybe?'

A sort of shimmer floats out of the house, hesitating at the doorway.

Permalink

Gentle encouragement.

(Hopefully it's not a reverse vampire or something and won't combust upon crossing the threshold.)

Permalink

Leaving the house seems to greatly increase its general confusion, but it remains a ghost.
