I recently moved into a studio ……………… over a garage attached to a 1 story house. I noticed when I was moving in one of the corners of the garage that there was a ……………. and ……………. toilet , I recongized them because my great grandparents had them when they were alive and they were very old. I thought this was odd because the lady I am renting from lives alone, so I began to suspect an elderly person lived there at one point. Then I began to notice some strange things. A lot of the lights have gone out and the shower ……………. clogged overnight.

At first I thought it was just a hair ……………. but when I removed the drain to see what the problem was it looked like someone dumped cement down the drain when it was perfectly fine before. My stuff also appears to move from where I left it and ends up in strange places I would never leave it. Ants have started coming out of the sink and only the sink and just staying around the sink.

At night I get an uneasy feeling of a presence is in the room. My friends and I were joking that it’s haunted when I told them about all the weird stuff and I ……………………….. it up to being a old house. That was until today when I was in the garage looking for something to clean the drain I found a white box labeld human ashes and instructions on what to do with them just sitting out in the open on one of the shelfs.

Last night before I went to bed at one o”clock, I could see them fishing for ……………….. Their boats were …………………….. down below on the Pacific Ocean and there were lights shining from the boats. They used the lights to attract squid. The four boats of the Japanese ……………. fishermen were arranged perfectly like stars in the sky. They were their own ………………… . That”s why I forgot the bottle. I thought about them fishing until dawn and maybe having a drink or two before going to sleep.

I should have been thinking about the bottle instead of sleeping Japanese squid fishermen. I brought the bottle to Japan with me a month ago. Its history is sort of interesting. One night a few weeks before I left San Francisco for Japan, I was …………………. in a bar with ………………… friends and we came up with the idea of writing little messages and putting them in a bottle that I would take with me to Japan and throw into the sea.

The bartender who”s a good friend of mine got a very solid empty bottle whose previous ……………….. had been some Drambuie and we all started writing messages but we didn”t show them to each other. As each person wrote a message, he kept it to himself, not showing it to anyone else and then put it in the bottle and after a few hours there were maybe thirty-five or forty messages in the bottle. It ……………………… the cross-section of an evening in an American bar.
