“I’m sorry if I’m such a pain,” Mr. Sidney said as I adjusted his pillows with a sigh.
“Oh! It’s not you, I promise,” Janet exclaimed. “I just have some things on my mind.”
“They don’t seem to be happy things,” Mr. Sidney noted with a wheeze. “Is it all this taking care of dying folks that has you upset? Or is it something else? I have a hard time talking, but I can be a great listener if you want to talk about it?”
Janet smiled. Mr. Sidney had always been one of the kindest men she cared for in the old age home where she worked. It was hard to believe that this weathered whisper of a man used to be a great muscled boxer in his day. He often spoke of how he was going to get back all those muscles when he got to heaven. He believed your spirit would look like your body did when you were in your prime!
“You wouldn’t believe me if I told you,” Janet exclaimed with a sigh.
Find out what Janet’s problem is, and how Mr. Sidney tries to help in this creepy ghost story.
