Molt pushed back from his desk after another long night of studying. Rain began to lash at the windows and he heard a distant crack of thunder. Time to call it a night -- but what was that? He thought he heard a strange sound...but he had felt the presence of something all day. Maybe it was just lack of sleep. He went to brush his teeth...
They found Molt the next day - skeletonized, with only his feet in his slippers left intact.
And, on a happier note, here's my Halloween cake! Ghosts how-to here. Of course, my creations never end up looking as good as Martha's.
