A Rather Hasty Retreat by TheMichaelMacRae A Rather Hasty Retreat by TheMichaelMacRae
He had little time to consider his snow clogged boots and frozen limbs when they began to sprout from the earth before him. Sensing his quickened pace, they hastened their efforts and called upon the spirits that loomed in the outskirts of the village to aid in their pursuit. These ghosts hold fast to tradition, crossing the boundary seemed an incomprehensible feat. None had done it, why, this time, should he? It was not until the last stretch that they knew. It was not until then that they became angry. But it was too late and his lead was too great.

It's a book he coaxed the ghosts into giving to him. Then he takes off and uses it for various things.

 Well what did you expect when you gave pursuit of a nerd (that is a book he's carrying, right)? He probably imagined you undead lot as motivated to give him a wedgie and took off like the Dickens.

 AHEM!

 I shall see my corny ass out the door. :D

I have the uncanny feeling that they're just trying to keep him from getting himself killed. But I may have misinterpreted your paragraph there in the description, and the other piece of art where he's sitting in the snow on the other side of a fence from them.

OH my, love the snow kicking up and the perspective.  He looks like he just saw the spirits and turned away almost.  Really wonderful. I'm not trying to make a joke of your artwork (it really is amazing) but I couldn't help but think of i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/n… when i saw the picture.  I don't mean to offend you, and I'm sorry if I do.
