Setup for this snippet: Last week, Lars, who is Cecilia's father and who also happens to be a ghost, admitted he thought he was being followed because his wife believed he was cheating on her. Cecilia asked if there was any truth to the statement.
His gaze latched onto hers. "I never cheated on your mother despite the tabloids stating I was sleeping around."
"I almost believe you," she scoffed. He'd been a famous rock star. Women threw themselves at the band. Heck, she'd been to concerts where women threw their panties on stage as if it was a great turn on. Groupies were hired to follow the band and she'd be stupid to think some of the band members didn't sleep with those women if their affections were offered.
"Listen, I may be many things the tabloids claim me to be, but I'm telling you I never cheated on your mother."
She looked at her laptop and typed in a few keywords and a whole lot of photos of her father popped up with him with his arms around models, movies stars and hot rock babes. In all fairness, there were plenty of photos of his arms around her mother too.
Lars Gunner, the frontman for Silent Plaids, died 23 years ago and his death was ruled an unfortunate accident. Despite the fact he can't recall what happened to him in his last moments of life, he is convinced he was murdered. He has been trapped in limbo until his daughter, Cecilia, unearths his journal and is able to see him. She seeks help from Kaleb, a psychic, but as they resurrect the past, the secrets and lies surrounding Lars' rock and roll life just may be the death of them too.
