Haunted Ed let me take the Fantasm out to help round up the Wraiths of Terror. They might talk tough, but they become as bound as any demons with the right incentives. The salt jets on the Kuro Fantasm lay a solid line of ritual-magick grade salt at speeds of up to 100 kph. You've got to be careful on the turns, but with those six wide tires you've got a lot of traction, and with the tight corners on campus I was able to lay a solid perimeter.
The rest of Ed's Solomon's Keys took their positions around the circle--each one with a sigil painted on the hood. That got the Wraiths bottled up tight, but there's still the matter of @Belinda Blip
, and where to send this bunch of thugs.
I picked up a hitchhiker on Warlock Mountain. It was sunset, and he was standing in the dust at the side of the road in a dirty suit that looked oddly old fashioned, like from the 30’s, and wore a wide-brimmed hat that covered his eyes. There were no other cars on the road so I pulled over and he let himself in the passenger door.
I asked where he was headed he didn’t say a word, but lifted one boney finger and pointed straight ahead. We drove on and on, and when I tried to make small talk he pulled his hat down farther over his face and seemed to sleep. Eventually I gave up and just scanned the AM radio dial.
Suddenly he sat bolt upright and said “STOP THE CAR.” I pulled over next to an empty field. He went to open his door, but it wouldn’t budge. Confused, he tried it again, and again, becoming more and more frantic. He could not get the door open because it was locked. I had put the child lock on. He began to thrash, his repeated movements taking on an inhuman speed. It was like watching a tape loop on fast forward, and he began to emit a pitiful high-pitched whine. It’s then that I pulled the Ghost Bottle out from under my seat, opened it up, and slurped him inside.
That’s how you get the Phantom Hitchhiker badge.
Is there an age requirement for Haunted Driver’s Ed, @Big Jim
? I skipped Psychic Middle School so I am younger than most students.
