Roberta smiled at Hale.

"I don't want to be personal, but you're not married. There's no wedding ring on your right, middle, finger". Hale shook his head.

"I dated a woman named Tracey Young. She was a Mississippi actress. She lived in Los Angeles since 2012; she was a b-movie horror actress. It paid the bills. She dumped me for Rand Carsen, who directed ​The Night Man​, a 2009 thriller that made them famous. Good for them. I wrote ​Good People in New Jersey​, a paranormal Young Adult novella in the summer of 2010. It was picked up as a series on Netflix two months' ago".  Hale smiled.

"There's the spacious kitchen", Roberta said.

Hale walked to the black curtains that were full of spiders. 

"Hang on, I'll find a pan to get rid of them". He opened the pantry door that was to the left with his hands. He turned the lights on. Then, to his disappointment, he saw no pan at all. Roberta smiled at him.

"I have one in the boot of my car". Hale nodded.

"That's good. I was about to fumigate the whole of the house. And that'll take a lot of time...and...", he didn't have time to finish when the sound of giggling disturbed his train of thought. Roberta was about to speak when the temperature decreased from 89 degrees to 65 degrees.

"Classic cold spot phenomena", she said. 

"I heard of them. Old houses that are haunted have them", Hale said. He then saw Roberta shiver.

"We need some firewood to fire the house up". Hale nodded. He didn't want too many things to fix up. Roberta left The Midnight House. Hale heard the sound of more giggling, as he saw a shadow of a girl dressed in a 1930's black dress...and was barefoot. "​Go away from here....​", the girl ghost said.

And it then screamed.
