The Haunting of Rapid Carwash Begins…
It all started on a chilly October night In St. Albans when the moon cast eerie shadows across the self-service bays at Rapid Carwash. An old, abandoned car, its windows fogged by time, seemed to roll in on its own. The moonlight lights up the creepy ghostly apparition of a spectral driver, steering the phantom vehicle.
The Ghostly Rinse
Witnesses that were trick and treating that night claimed that the ghostly figure embarked on an otherworldly car wash routine. Suds and bubbles danced in the air as if choreographed by unseen hands. The eerie glow of the neon lights flickered as the spectral driver maneuvered through the bay, all while the automatic brushes spun and rinsed an invisible car.
The Spooky Vacuum
As if guided by an unseen force, the vacuum hose slithered across the asphalt, hovering over the ground like a restless spirit. A ghostly whirr echoed through the night as the vacuum, seemingly of its own accord, sucked up ethereal dirt and phantom debris.
The Phantom Dry
The climax of the spectral car wash unfolded as the ghostly driver approached the drying station. Witnesses reported feeling a chilling breeze as an unseen force mimicked the motions of drying an invisible car, all while the overhead dryers roared to life without any visible vehicle beneath them.
The Vanishing Act
As mysteriously as it appeared, the ghostly car and its phantom driver vanished into thin air. The automatic bay dryers groaned to a stop, leaving only the lingering scent of imaginary car wax and the sound of spectral laughter echoing through the night.
