The ghost says 'Anyway, you know how hard it is to keep sheets clean' The ghost says 'around here? Well let me tell you, it is impossible.' As you listen to him speak you notice a blob of mustard on his chin. The mustard falls and lands on his sheet. The ghost sighs loudly. The ghost says 'This place is so dirty.

Maracales look at XXXXXXXX Maracales says 'Somehow you seem different. Perhaps you might be of use to' Maracales says 'me. I offer you a choice. I have a task I must complete' Maracales says 'before I leave this place. You can either help me with this' Maracales says 'or I can banish you from my presence as I have so many before.' Maracales says 'Which will you be? Friend or foe?'

Maracales says 'Good, let me tell you of how I came to be here.' Maracales says 'Long ago I came to this festival in search of steady work.' Maracales says 'This was as close as I could be to my beautiful wife and still' Maracales says 'provide for her. The festival manager gave me a job. He paid' Maracales says 'me room, board, and a small amount of money that I sent home' Maracales says 'to my wife. I did not have the money to visit her often. He' Maracales says 'seemed to like the idea that I could not leave.' Maracales coughs loudly. When Maracales coughs you notice several droplets of blood spatter on the sheet. The sheet instantly absorbs the drops and is as clean as ever. Maracales says 'One day I received word she was ill and I went to him and told' Maracales says 'him I would be leaving to be with her. Instead, he had her' Maracales says 'brought to the festival to live and had his doctors help her.' Maracales says 'The doctors couldn't help and one day her torment was ended.' Maracales says 'I rushed to be with her but when I arrived at our tent I was' Maracales says 'shocked to find that her body had been removed. The manager' Maracales says 'thought I would take this opportunity to leave and he used her' Maracales says 'body to prevent it. He underestimated my powers and my love' Maracales says 'for my wife. I vowed to find my wife's body and return it' Maracales says 'home to be buried. I took up residence in this building and' Maracales says 'from here I use magic to search for her body. Unfortunately,' Maracales says 'I am unable to leave this building and that is where you can' Maracales says 'help me. I acquired a key that allows access to my wife's' Maracales says 'resting place. I do not know where that is but if you can' Maracales says 'find and bring her to me I would gladly leave this prison.' Maracales says 'Please hurry, this nightmare must end.'
