Dead Rite chapter 172.09

“Ah.” Harold drummed on the desk top with his fingers.

“Was there something else?”

“No. It's fine.” He pursed his lips like a New Jersey girl taking a selfie. “Actually, no, it's not exactly fine. Lucy called another spirit to the house.”

“So? She seems to have a talent for it. Another legionairre?”

“Like Molly?”

“Yes. No. Sort of.” Harold shook his head. “Molly's a ghost. A proper, haunting ghost tied to the house. The one... I'm not so sure. I can't make her out. She has fire in her eyes.”

“Saucy, eh?”

“No, real fire. Like a...” His face fell. “Oh dear.”

“What? What is it like?”

“Like a djinn.”
