Oh Jean, you nasty fraud!
This page probably lost most of its effectiveness if you read on mobile. Sorry. I might just turn it into a normal page later

Keep an eye out for the next story, it'll probably be a while (I've got exams coming up)! I have two more properly planned out and some others, so I'm going to ask... would you prefer another mildly creepy story, or a totally silly one next?

Bwa ha ha! An excellent conclusion!
A ghost whistle…that's one way to clear a room :D

There's probably more efficient ways to be a thief, but none are quite as fun, I imagine :P

Awesome story. Are you getting these from somewhere, or making them up? Because they're quite good.

I guess a ghost hunter's gotta make money somehow...

At least he sent the ghosts away again..!

And thanks, I'm just making them up~ Most of them are just random ideas I'd had for a while.

Also, I'm always up for totally silly stories. Silly be my vote.

Bwahahaha, great story mothtrap! <3 I like the character of the charlatan, though technically he's legit as someone who *can* see and sense ghosts (sixth sense and stuff) but the exorcism gig may not be quite his thing I'm guessing? XD; Or maybe when he takes the money from hapless haunted-house owners, he just tells the ghosts to go haunt another house... XD;;;

(Btw, just a side-note - there's a line that says "You've blowing down it all evening" in the third panel - I think you've missing a 'been' in there somewhere? XD; Sorry, I couldn't help noticing!)

Oh man, I must have proofread this like a thousand times but I never even noticed that! I've fixed that now, thank you for noticing~

He probably just takes the money and lets the ghosts go back to doing their thing until he needs them for his next scam. He's definitely a fraudster if not quite charlatan :P
