Medium to the Stars
Author of Our Supernatural Neighbors
When Jessica Fletcher's assistant emailed me that the best-selling author had need of a medium to help rid her house of noxious spirits, I got right on the case. I am a world renowned spiritualist, after all, or I will be as soon as my book starts selling. More important, I have the gift. What gift is that? No, I don't see dead people, but they do communicate with me, sometimes through smells or objects they leave around for me to find. Anyway, I know they're there. I can feel them.
Unfortunately as it turned out, Jessica--she told me to call her that--doesn't have an assistant. And the home in question wasn't hers at all. Her clever friend Eve Simpson, a real estate agent, posed as Jessica's secretary and offered me money to smoke out any negative influences from a huge white elephant of a house she was trying to sell. So much for honesty in advertising!
Anyway, I arrived with my cameraman so we could document the "cleansing," which is what I do
|Jessica thinks my hair looks like this.|
But I'm a blonde.
Jessica had forgotten that I had taken one of her classes on writing years ago. Of course, I was Agnes Potts then. I couldn't keep that name once I discovered my gift. A medium needs a more exotic calling card to attract the right kind of clientele.
I'm sorry to say that Mrs. Fletcher is not a believer. I can tell. It isn't just because she refused to be interviewed for my online video program and confiscated my video card. She questions everything. You have to suspend your disbelief when you are pursuing spirits. You have to go by feelings, not facts. It's a shame she rejected my offers of help. If she'd agreed to appear on my show, I could have made her famous by now.
