There was no ghost that she could see.
Perhaps Charlotte had been wrong. Of course, that would mean she would have to speak to a man. Jane had wistful fantasies about boys, but these were men. They were hairy and smelly and huge. It seemed utterly impossible to have a conversation with one of these drunken men lurching about the pub. She did not belong here.
She lowered her head, slyly pinched her nose to shut out the dreadful man smells, and barreled through the crowd toward the bar. At least, Jane would call it barreling. We would describe it as delicately weaving. At her approach the barkeep glanced up. For a moment Jane looked utterly scandalized that he should offer her such a thing. Then she snatched up the glass and took a sip. The liquid fire seared down her esophagus.
She gasped and put the glass down.

She had just started to pronounce the word ghost when an unearthly shriek filled the room. Jane jerked her gaze upward to behold a woman in a white nightdress hovering in the air above the bar. Her skin was almost entirely translucent, but her eyes glowed like coals.
She was perhaps the most beautiful ghost Jane had ever seen. And Jane had seen her share of ghosts. Her aim was true. Down he went, without another word. Jane ducked so that she would be less of a target, and crawled and slid and scurried until she was safely tucked away behind the bar, where she could use the unconscious barkeep as a shield. Always thinking of others, that Jane.

The hem of her dress was sticking to the booze-soaked floor, which was unfortunate, but unpreventable at this point. She peered around the incapacitated barkeep to watch the ghastly scene continue to unfold. The Shrieking Lady kept demanding to see her degenerate husband, all the while hurling things about the room. They were probably used to it. What a mess, thought Jane glumly as the Shrieking Lady sent a huge jar of pickled eggs crashing to the floor.
By now she was feeling markedly less pity for the woman.

This ghost is definitely troublesome, she concluded. So where was the blooming—oh dear, pardon her French—Society? At that exact moment, as if her thoughts had conjured him, a man in a black mask jumped onto a table in the center of the room. He took a small object out of his pocket and threw it against the wall. Jane caught herself staring, too, her breath catching—although, again, that could have just been her corset.

She shoved the barkeep aside to get a better look. Most of the men of this era had a mustache or, at the very least, sideburns, but he had neither. In the pre-Victorian age, a truly handsome man should be pale—because being out in the sun was for peasants—with a long, oval-shaped face, a narrow jaw, a small mouth, and a pointy chin. But he was obviously of the upper class, wearing a fine wool coat and expensive-looking leather gloves. The crowd immediately exited in an orderly fashion. The room was now empty save for another masked man, this one younger than the first, definitely a boy, and wearing a much shabbier suit.

Apparently they came in pairs. Then we confirm the identity of the spirit. Jane had almost forgotten. She glanced up to see the ghost.

The Shrieking Lady had long since stopped shrieking, too busy staring at the agents. The one in charge produced a small, black leather-bound notebook from an inner pocket of his coat, and a pencil. He opened the book gently, in a way that reminded Jane of Charlotte, and turned to a marked page. The Shrieking Lady pressed her back against the ceiling but refused to answer.
The other agent, the short one with the mop of red hair and glasses—which Jane noticed he wore over his mask—stepped forward. The one in charge shushed the redhead. He turned to the ghost again. The agent in charge leapt nimbly through the air and landed beside the ghost.

A moment of complete silence passed. Nobody moved, except the redheaded one, who groaned and rubbed his temple. But the ghost began to drift purposefully toward Jane. She quickly glanced at the ceiling. The painting on the wall. Anywhere but at the ghost. She never knew how to answer to this, mostly because living persons had been telling her all her life how very plain she was.
She always wondered why, if she was so unexceptional, did people feel the need to comment on it? The dratted ghost breezed even closer. Jane had seen this type before. This could turn into a fly-on-flypaper situation. Which she could not let happen now. She took another two steps back. The ghost floated two steps forward. As Jane struggles to come to terms with the terrorist attack, she befriends 3 girls in the lunch room of her new school.
She talks them into committing harmless guerrilla art projects around town. However, the local police don't see it that way are are trying to hunt them down.
