Ghoststory

In Nestor Stephen replies to his students' clamoring for "a story, sir," "A ghoststory," by saying "After"—i.e., when the lesson is completed. He never gives them the story, but the riddle that he tells them instead does release a bit of the terrible emotional energy that he connects with ghosts, by imagining himself as a fox (he is, after all, a dogsbody) that has buried its grandmother.
