Uncommonly Tidy Poltergeists

“I drove … down to Dover a few weeks ago.”

“To the farmer’s market?” Ben said around a mouthful of pie. “Long way to go for strawberries.”

Luka gave Ben an odd look. “He didn’t say anything about produce.”

“Well, no, but why else go all the way—” Ben tried to defend his conclusion-jumping, but Mom interrupted him.

“It was to go to some specialist down there, wasn’t it?” Her tone was hard, but there was undisguised horror in her eyes. “Taro, are you sick? Why didn’t you tell us?”

“You could all stop making wild guesses and let Taro tell you,” Papi said without taking his attention from his pie or raising his voice. “Just a suggestion.”

Finally, he was ready. Twelve properties waited for him around the globe, and he’d allowed himself a week at each in his itinerary. Three months to see if he could sustain and enjoy his experiment.

“Oh. I like Jack. Jack can be anyone. Anything. Pirate. Time traveler. Singer. Giant killer. Pumpkin king. Paranormal researcher.” Montrose paused to shoot Taro a crooked grin. Then he twitched a shrug and went back to his readings. “Phillip’s an accountant. Or a snooty trust-fund baby. Why are you named after a root vegetable?”

Taro needed three tries to find his voice. “I’m not.”
