She sat at the kitchen table, newspaper open to the classifieds, phone in hand as she dialed the number.  Her left index finger was almost glued to one particular ad.

Quote :
For sale, haunted grandfather clock. Made in England, circa 1830. Gorgeous antique, keeps perfect time, but is seriously haunted. $1000 or trade for one way plane ticket to LA.

"Hello, my name is Beth, and I'm calling in regards to the ad in the paper about the Grandfather Clock."

"The ad says it's haunted. In what way? And does the clock work as a clock?"

"The clock works fine. But it's totally haunted. Like, it chimes sometimes when it shouldn't or sometimes, things fly around the room when it starts to chime. It's really, really weird."

"I'll be there in an hour with my truck and the cash. Will I need to have the stuff to keep it safe in transport, as well?"

She took the address, gathered up moving blankets and bungie cords and headed for the bank to pull money. In an hour, she was knocking on the door.

The girl answered the door with a taco in one hand. "Hey!"

"Hey. Misty?"

The girl nodded, transferred the taco to her left hand. She wiped her right on the back of her jeans, then offered it to Elizabeth.

"You're Beth?"

"Yes. Did I interrupt dinner?"

She shook her head.

"What? Oh, no! Just having a snack. Come on in."

She held the door open for the woman to enter.

"What do you move?"

There were packed boxes all around the room.

"Getting ready to move to LA. Over here is the clock."

She gestured with her free hand.

She smiled and moved to the clock, looking it over.

"Yes, it's perfect."

She laughed.

"It's all yours. My granddad had a thing for antiques, then it came to me when my parents died. I just don't have a way to get it to LA with me and with it being haunted, I don't even want to."

She nodded.

"I understand, and am glad I can give it a good home. You have any idea who's haunting it?"
