The buggane is a creature unique to the Isle of Man.
Initial reports of Gef referred to him as a buggane
(this site gives a very good overview and pdfs of press clippings from Feb 1932)
And now, some actual scripting direct from my head to blogger to you.
VOIRREY: Who's there?
VOIRREY: I can hear you breathing.
Voirrey sits up in bed.
A skittering sound above her.
VOIRREY: I'm not afraid of you.
A thump from the wall beside her.
Voirrey screams then slaps a hand over her mouth.
VOIRREY: Please be quiet. Please.
A door slams off.
Enter James with lantern.
JAMES: What the bloody hell is all this noise?
VOIRREY: It's a buggane!
JAMES: What? For god's sake Voirrey we're trying to sleep.
A thump overhead.
JAMES: Silly girl, that isn't any buggane. Its a bloody rat in the wall.
JAMES: I'll deal with it in the morning. You had best get to sleep, and not a peep out of you or it'll be blue murder. You hear?
JAMES: Do you hear?
VOIRREY: Yes, Dad.
VOIRREY: I am NOT afraid of you.
GEF (muffled off, mimicing James): Silly girl...
VOIRREY: Can you speak?
GEF (mimicing Voirrey): Speak.
VOIRREY: Do you have big teeth?
GEF (mimicing): Teeth.
VOIRREY: You're just copying me.
GEF (mimicing James from earlier): Blue murder.
