There are all manner of hauntings: of places, of things, of people. There are hauntings of the mind, just as there are hauntings of the body and of the soul. But the worst sort of haunting is the kind which infects the spirit, entwines with it, subsumes it. The kind that cannot be easily exorcised.
Not, at least, without first killing the host.
