Charles is 75% certain that Erik is dead. Not because he saw him die or anything, that would be stupid.
Charles is certain that Erik is dead because that is what Charles can do, he can see the dead amongst the living. Sometimes the dead don’t know that they’re dead, and apparently this dead guy really likes to follow Charles around and hit on him and completely blow off even the most blunt statement of ‘You need to pass on, you can’t stay here.’ and laugh at Charles like he’s the crazy one.
Charles, in all honesty, might be a little afraid to see Erik go.

The first time it happens, Charles is seven, and they're putting his father in the ground. He doesn't realize that nobody else can see what he does, or that his life is about to change forever.
Years later, teenaged Charles is grappling with college applications, his fucked up stepfamily, and trying to right the wrongs of restless spirits. It's kind of a lot to deal with, particularly when he becomes witness to a murder victim's last moments, finding himself swept up into an investigation that quickly goes out of control.
Meanwhile, Erik, an up-and-coming detective with a sizable chip on his shoulder, just wants to figure out what kind of serial killer he's dealing with. And maybe just how exactly the strange young man with such eerie blue eyes knows so much about the situation.
