"Phil, honey, we're going to be late!" Inside the house, Sheila Ramsey put on her earrings and checked her hair in the mirror.

Outside, Phil Ramsey moved carefully through the flowerbed, digging out weeds that had begun to sprout in the wake of last night's rain. "I'll grab a shower in a minute, darling!"

At the tree line, something moved, and Phil looked up. A figure half-receded into the trees. "What?" Phil got up, holding his spade, "Who's there?" He approached, slowly, and the figure moved away. However briefly, the waning sunlight moved across it... and then it was gone.

"What--" Phil Ramsey took a step forward, and then dropped his spade. "No--"

"Honey, what is it?" Sheila emerged out onto the back deck.

"Nothing, honey... nothing. Just thought I saw something in the trees that wasn't there." Phil took his wife by the shoulder, and gently escorted her inside. He cast one last look over his shoulder. "Thought I saw a ghost, is all."

A moment later, a figure in the trees turned away.
