Merry meet all,
In my novel, The Eldritch Ghost, the eldritch ghost Jonathan Fraser attempts to communicate with Rosemary Bell, the heroic main character of the novel. Jonathan is heroic too but Rosemary is the one who saves him. Throughout the novel, he attempts many ways to communicate with her. In my efforts of course, to be as original as I earlier posted, I came up with an unique way for him communicate with her.
He feeds off her energy. He is not parasitic. He talks to her and moves objects in the house such as causing curtains to fall. But one main way of his reaching out to her is it happens the most strongest when she touches seaweed. If she touches seaweed with him bearing the seaweed curse, he can communicate with her the strongest and deliver a warning or a message clearly.
He drowned in the ocean when Duncan murdered him. His body was buried in the house to cover up the murder. His pain of being torn from his love and his family was so agonizing he became melancholy. The house became a tomb of gloom and misery. Here he waits, for a spark of life to return and save him. That spark of light to his shock is Rosemary, grieving for the death of her husband.
We have all experienced pain, loss and sadness. We have experienced joy and ecstasy. You think the ghost is the evil one in the novel but not so. The one suspect is revealed in the end. Jonathan is a powerful ghost. He is both good and some bad. He helps Rosemary when Duncan spies on her but he craves vengeance and traps spirits of those who have died in his misty realm.
He also invades her dreams to communicate with her how he was murdered since he needs her help. She is the tool for him to be saved. The dreams are eerie and unsettling but he desperately needs her help. I am familiar with having odd dreams and experiencing sleep paralysis and I tried to include a lot of my feelings in the book. Rosemary eventually believes Jonathan tells the truth and not the townspeople who aren’t too eager to reveal all the gristly details of the town’s dark past.
I have some experience with the paranormal. I know how that sounds. I live in a city where we take spooks and hauntings for granted. The Five Fishermen restaurant is one such haunted restuarant. I dined there in the past and on the second floor on my tour, the ghosts were like, “You can sense us?” Remember that Ghost movie starring Patrick Swayze? It was like that. They actually have a high turnover rate of employment because the employees see cutlery flying off the shelves.
I will let you determine for yourselves whether ghosts exist. But remember, they were once us.
