Four Bohemians and One Ghost
Publisher：Bookspring Taiwan Inc.
The story was crossed with reality and dream- the Death and Paradise, opened by a suicide girl, began from the old apartment…
Steven and his good friend- Howard rented a dilapidated apartment as Tattoo and Image studios respectively. They surprisingly found there was a bankrupt Television Home Shopping company when they just moved in. Worse of that, the evil landlord rented the apartment to another two lodgers at the same time. They are novelist- Roger and music teacher-Vincent. They hate each other but none of them was willing to move out. In the end, each of them occupied part of apartment.
When they were caught in such chaos, Steven accidentally saved the life of a girl who attempted to jump off the roof. Miserably, the girl didn’t appreciate for the rescue at all. She claimed that she has died and planed to ghostly entangle with Steven. Her name is Eva.
From now on, four men and a girl who claimed to be a ghost, lived in the apartment together with the magical connecting fate. Although the four men were impoverished, they self-assumed as artists and embraced their own faiths. Steven believed in fortune; Howard relied on personal networks; Roger and Vincent believed in talents and hard working respectively. All of them don’t mind to accept low-paid cases as long as they can work with creation.
Afterwards, all kinds of visitors knocked on their door, including young girl first awakening of love, fatty who wanted self-reformation and glasses-wearing girl who worked in comic book store. Instantaneously, the apartment business went up dramatically.
Love stories also came out from the active apartment life, for instance, Vincent held on an unethical relationship with his student; Roger fell in love with crazy fan and Howard soaked in the greedy love and power. Steven, however, fell in love with the mystical and attractive ghost- Eva.
However, with the appearance of dark knight- a car racing leader, Eva’s debauched past was disclosed gradually. During the miserable past, Eva even lost the thought of living and strived to escape everything. Thanks to Steven’s help- he saved Eva’s life at the risk of losing his own. Finally, Eva found back her life value and fell in love with him.
One day, Eva secretly brought Steven to a weird funeral- the funeral for herself. The truth is, Eva is Laurence’s Group CEO’s daughter and her family though she has died. As they discovered Eva is still alive, her family took her back by force without notice.
Eva’s disappearance caused a great deal of dissension among the four men. Their friendship has broken up and eventually they moved out one by one. On the other side, the dark knight also looked for Eva. He even committed crimes, unscrupulously forcing Eva to show up.
In order to meet her lover- Steven, Eva finally appeared in front of apartment. Unfortunately, she was caught by the dark knight one step ahead. As Steven and other three fellows got the news, they hardly decided to get over the past and start a rescue altogether…
No matter whom Eva chooses in the end- lover of now or past, at least, she won’t forget the life-giving memory created in the apartment.
