NOTE: First lines are the visual. Next line is the written words on the page.
(Maybe have the actual “Promise” on the page on a scroll, so it’s not really part of the story, but nonetheless there.)

Once upon a time there was a ghost....

...he wasn’t just any ghost. He was Sir Simon de Canterville, a noble British Ghost.

The house was empty and so all of his servant ghosts were bored.

And all of the ghosts hid like scared mice.

I’ll take it!” said Mr. Otis.

But it is haunted,” replied Lord Canterville.

Well, then I’ll just have to charge the ghost rent.”

And they left.

Charge me rent? I’ll charge them rent and the lease will be signed in blood!” He then laughed a dreadful laugh.

which made him cough and cough. “Oscar! Water!”

And that is when we first met.

Sir! I must insist that you oil those chains. Here is a bottle of Uncle Sam’s Oil Slick. Thank you!

Sir you can’t give up. You have to teach these good-for-nothing Americans a thing or two.”

I had almost finished my plan.

Why don’t you steal Virginia Otis away.

But, he was a little out of shape.

I’m sorry that my family has been so rude to you, Mr. Ghost.” I too should be very mad. You used my favorite paints to keep up your silly bloodstain. Who’s ever heard of blue blood?”

Why are you crying for me? After all those awful things I have done.
