“Nobody rents that apartment,” her raspy voice snapped.

“Why not?” Nancy prodded.

“Because it’s haunted. Or at least that’s what I’ve heard.”

“How come?”

“There was a fire or something and a newlywed couple got trapped inside,” the old woman chided. “Anyways, they never found their bodies. That’s when strange things started to happen in there.”

“What kind of strange things?”

“Listen lady, are you here to buy something or just to ask me a bunch of stupid questions?”

“No thanks, Ma’am,” she replied.

Suddenly, she saw a strange, amorphous figure in the apartment window looking down at her.
