Part 16

Ooh, a Brownie.
Information about the demon and an image in this link: blessed be the great Wikipedia

Note: When it is full moon, the demons will be particularly aggressive, and one cannot negotiate with them. Only one thing can be done: BATTLE.

After a long and hard Battle, Stamos defeated both brownies, and found himself in need of healing. He decided to use one of his hard earned ointments, which restored him to full health and strenght.
Four steps later he encountered another dreadful demon. Was he going to have to spend the rest of his life battling hordes of these creatures?
The answer is probably "Yes", but he was in luck! The moon's phase had shifted! So violence was NOT the only possible course of action he could take! He now could negotiate with the apparitions!

Behold (or not, due to the damned ghostly flickering), A GHOST!

Copypasted from Wikipedia:
"A ghost is usually defined as the apparition of a deceased person which frequently carries the deceased person's likeness and is experienced in association with the person's former habitats. The word "ghost" may also refer to the spirit or soul of a deceased person, or to any spirit or demon.[1][2] Ghosts are often associated with haunting, which is, according to the Parapsychological Association, "The more or less regular occurrence of paranormal phenomena associated with a particular locality (especially a building) and usually attributed to the activities of a discarnate entity; the phenomena may include apparitions, poltergeist disturbances, cold drafts, sounds of steps and voices, and various odors."[1]

Ghosts are controversial phenomena. According to a 2005 poll by the Gallup Organization, about 32% of Americans believe in ghosts.[3] The term ghost has been replaced by apparition in the scientific field of parapsychology, because the word ghost is deemed insufficiently precise.[4]"

Quite clearly, this pin depicts a ghost.

What attitude should Stamos take when confronting this ghastly apparition?
