Summary: Ward is being haunted by his dad. Or maybe he's hallucinating. It's sort of hard to tell.</p>

The general idea of Harold coming back as a ghost is I've been wanting to write ever since I watched the show for the first time last year. The broad strokes of the plot crystallized in my head when I got a "postage stamp" card from h/c bingo this spring that had "haunting", "bruises" ... and another prompt that really didn't fit, but that made the plot click into place: Ward starts turning up with mysterious bruises, burns, and other injuries. He thinks his dad's ghost is doing it, but even he's not entirely sure whether it's really happening or if it's something he's doing to himself -- and how can he get someone else to believe him when the idea is so impossible?
