Mysteries All Around! [Closed to Arin and Ghooooooosts]

When Tom had thought of places to share with Arin, he had originally thought of going with one of the basements, or maybe the graveyard out in the forest, or places like that. There had to be something in there, right?

But one day, while he was in the computer room, he'd noticed some ghosts floating around. Maybe they hadn't realized they'd died, maybe they were just curious about all of the emotions going on in the room, maybe it was something else entirely. Hard to say. The important thing was that it'd be easy to get in after hours, there were ghosts around, and there were two whole stories that weren't in use any longer.

Or in other words, it was prime ghost-hunting territory, while presumably not being too dangerous.

It had even been child's play to create a plan. Tom had simply stayed late with the computer club, and when he'd said his farewells, he'd gone up to the third floor rather than leaving the second building. The plan was simple: Tom would let Arin in, and Arin would bring in the materials, like flashlights and such, that Tom couldn't. It was practically perfect, and now Tom waited in the dark for Arin's quiet knock. Once that happened, they'd be off...

"It's alright. Much as I'd hate to admit it, going over everything with a fine-toothed comb is probably the best way of it. Everyone else probably ran right off and figured they'd find the important stuff when they got there and that's why they failed. Though, you know, I'm sure you and I would probably notice anything else that's important on the way there anyway but leaving no stone unturned is supposed to be good practice in a proper investigation, right?"

Which was precisely what they were doing. Any more proper and official and they should have been getting a detective's salary.

Arin felt good. He felt like they were definitely, definitely on to something and he was confident they'd get to the bottom of it. Going along with Tom's system meant he didn't have to worry about that changing. Ideally. It was easy to equate "better safe than sorry" with "thorough and efficient" at this point.

"Who knows. That's what's always messed up about stuff like this. Someone probably knows something but it's easier and probably cheaper to cover it all up. Then they'll play dumb later when it's all out in the open. Maybe whatever it was would've stopped if it was out there.." Arin trailed off in consideration for a moment. A vengeful spirit seeking justice and recognition?

Only he could manage to balance that much dread and excitement simultaneously and act normally. Or normal for him, anyway.
