Conveyancer Haunting

Things weren’t looking good for Rylee. With her leg broken and a haunted conveyancing museum attempting to end her life, she had significant doubts over whether she’d escape. Finding a relatively safe corner to hide in, for a long while she simply hoped that the haunted papers and furniture would forget all about her, but after two hours, that didn’t seem to be the case. And so, if she was going to make it out, she’d have to crawl through the maelstrom and hope for the best.

Just as she prepared to push herself through the pain and leave her hiding spot, a paper bat crashed into the wall near her, falling to the ground in a clear daze. Rylee extended her arm and snatched the paper, unfolding it. The document appeared to be by a conveyancer operating near Brighton, detailing a property settlement, although it was only half-finished. The paper struggled in her hand, attempting to break free of her grasp. Rylee held tight, an idea forming in her mind.

She’d once worked as a buyer’s agent, real estate agent and pretended to be a conveyancer in the Mentone area, as well as numerous other Melbourne suburbs. She was perfectly qualified to complete this piece of work. Besides, even if nothing happened, the mere fact that it was half-finished bothered her quite a bit, so she simply had to do something about it.

Rylee pulled a pen out of her pocket and began to complete the paperwork, even as the paper continued struggling against her. It wasn’t easy, but eventually, she managed to dot all the I’s and cross all the T’s.

When the job was done, the paper immediately stopped struggling. It went limp, then fell to the floor as she let it go. Slowly, the paper began to fade, until it was no longer there at all. 

Rylee put the pen away and considered what had just happened. It seemed the restless papers simply wanted their conveyancing business completed, so if she could put them to rest, maybe she would be able to get out of here safely. It was worth a shot, at least.
