What if...? Your weekly fix of the Sassy Sunday Story Starter! (SSSS)

Good morning! Welcome back! Players and lurkers, we love you! Here is today's weekly fix of the  Sassy Sunday Story Starter, brought to you by one of our very own affiliate authors, Chérie De Sues.  

Chérie has authored many "critically claimed" novels, novellas, and short stories. 
This week is slightly different, and I hope you will enjoy playing along with this. It's a "What if...?" writing prompt. As usual where you go with this is totally up to you. 
For anyone wanting to try their hand at flash fiction - how about a 450 word limit this week? (*Evil laugh*)  Or, maybe you'll use this to write a whole novel. The choice, as they (who?) say, is yours. 
What if... your young aunt died mysteriously over a cliff and she left you her estate currently occupied with two randy Irish...ghosts?

Chérie's  own book, The Seduction of Simone starts out like this:

The swollen, February sky brooded with purple and rose hues, as though Mother Nature had slapped it.

There would be no point for Simone to put on a happy face. Her fickle emotions had bounced erratically between the pain of loss and joy all day.

Mr. Cavendish stood at the rusted iron gate, which towered behind him like the grill of a Mack truck. His tiny, red sports car, parked off to the side, allowed her to drive on the narrow pavement, leading to Celeste's estate.

No. Her estate now.
