Imposed 2022

 Haunted house for sale is the way they should have advertised it.

But, of course, they can't. All they can do is disclose, and what you do from there is up to you. Ours didn't bother to tell us anything. To celebrate the purchase of our first home, we had the realtor take a picture of us in front of it. When it came out, the picture showed that I had a full beard when I wore no facial hair whatsoever. Observing the image closer, my wife and I saw that it was someone else's imposed over mine. I guess the realtor forgot where she was and exclaimed, "Oh my god, that's Eddie's face! How did it get in this photograph?"

Come to find out, Eddie Greene is the previous owner of the home who committed suicide by hanging himself in the front door with the portal wide open for all to see. Eddie worked for the authorities, so it was kept hush hush. There is nothing in the newspapers, the six in the evening news, or social media. Turns out, after he was placed on administrative leave for nefarious activities, he spiraled into a deep depression and grew a full beard. Not hearing anything from the force, he knew it was their passive-aggressive way to tell him that he was fired. The following morning, fate itself manifested in a letter letting him know that he was no longer a part of the force. After giving his life and blood to a job only to realize that he'd be cut as if he never existed was too much. Eddie pounded a rebar a foot above the inside of the front door, and it was from there that he hung himself in full view of the neighborhood.
