After finishing having breakfast with Ramona at a restaurant nearby, you headed straight to your room on the top level. As you entered the room, you called for your fiance James. “James?!”
James was doing his hair in the bathroom. He peeked his head out for you to see him. “Yes?”
“I just wanted to let you know that I’ll be leaving soon to visit a friend. I won’t be back until late. So don’t look out for me.” You placed your purse on your bed, then started rummaging through your dresser to find a more casual outfit to change into. You didn’t need to dress up to see your ghostly friend.
James goes back in the bathroom to finish up on his hair, he raises his voice slightly for you to hear. “And who is this friend, might I ask?”
“Do you remember my friend Tate? He’s the one that I visited last week.” Tate really was a great friend to you. You never thought you would be best friends with a ghost, and now, you’re also engaged to one.
It broke your parents’ hearts and especially Tate’s the day you moved out of the house so that you can live with James. You’ve even made the effort to visit as often as possible. Your parents even bought him a phone so that the two of you can keep in touch.
Halloween was the one time of the year you looked forward to the most because you can actually go out into the city with your best friend.
James comes out of the bathroom and walks towards one of the tables to pour himself a glass of bourbon. “Ah yes. Your ghostly murderous friend.”
“Yes, him! I called him earlier and said I made plans for us to go out into the city for the day.” You said excitedly.
James took a sip out of his glass. “Dearest, I would be honored if he were to join in on devil’s night. I’m sure myself, and my friends especially, would be thrilled to hear of his killings.”
“Aw, sweetheart you’re so kind. But Tate is very…to himself. He doesn’t like to talk about it. He’d rather forget.” You walk up to James to give him a quick kiss on the cheek, then you walk over to your purse to grab your phone so that you can text Tate that you’ll be on your way soon. “But I do appreciate the invite. Maybe next year? No promises though.”
“You’re gonna leave me, aren’t you?” Tate cried as he saw the suit case in your hand, you were his sunshine and he was breaking inside.
The tears ran down his face as they did yours, he couldn’t understand why you were leaving. “You said you would never leave me…”
If you’re as big a fan of silent comedy fan as I am, you might’ve noticed that it’s not uncommon to hear criticism of the widespread ranking of the “Big Four” (or the “Big Three,” for those of you who haven’t experienced the wonder that is Harry Langdon yet). Folks will say, “There were lots of popular, talented, funny comedians back then, why do we praise just 4 of them all the time?” Here’s why I DON’T agree with that kind of revisionist thinking.
