The Ghost in the Closet

The Ghost in the Closet by M. K. Theodoratus
Genres: Dark Fantasy, Fantasy, Horror, Occult & Supernatural, Paranormal, Short Stories (single author), Supernatural

Some say the ability of seeing ghosts is a gift, but after losing her job, Dumdie Swartz says, “Hogwash”. Since she was a child, Dumdie has seen ghosts and has developed several quirks to cover the fact so she wouldn’t need to explain herself or be exploited. When her boss witnesses several of these occasions, he fires her, thinking that she suffers from a mental issue that could be a liability to his business. Without a job and money, Dumdie becomes just another old, homeless woman living out of her car. As winter approaches, her luck changes, and she secures a private room in a homeless shelter, but it isn’t as private as she thinks. The ghost of the former owner of shelter haunts the room where she died, searching for the misplaced will that guarantees the shelter would continue to exist as she so desired. Dumdie must make a decision. Does she continue to hide her gift in fear of upsetting people or appearing insane? Does she go out on a limb and try to save the shelter, the room they have given her, and herself in the process.
