Norman and Melinda
Hi everyone, It's VickyT36 here with a paranorman fanfic, re-uploaded enjoy
Chapter 1: Norman Babcock
One evening in the town of Blithe Hollow, Massachusetts in the Babcock household 11-year-old Norman Babcock was watching a zombie movie with his Grandma.
"So what's happening?" she asked. "The zombie just ate her head, Grandma." said Norman popping popcorn in his mouth. "Well that's not very nice. They should talk about their problems. Not to mention he'll spoil his dinner." said Grandma.
"Norman, I thought I told you to take out the trash. It's stinking up the whole house." called Perry Babcock, his dad. "Coming, Dad." said Norman.
"Tell him to turn up the heat. My feet are ice-cold." said Grandma. Norman walked into the kitchen where his dad was changing a light bulb, and his mom was watching the dishes.
"So what are you watching, sweetie?" asked Sandra, his mom. "Sex and violence." answered Norman. "Oh, well that's nice." she said. "(Groans), can't you be like other kids your age, and play in the backyard or something?" asked Perry.
"Perry." said Sandra. "I thought you said kids my age were too busy shoplifting and joyriding." said Norman hauling the trash out of the trash can. While he was walking towards the door, his older sister, Courtney came in talking on her pink rhinestone studded cell phone.
"Yeah, I couldn't believe that he said no. Eww, Norman watch where you're going." said Courtney, when Norman accidentally brushed the garbage against her.
"Courtney, be nice." said Sandra. Courtney plopped down on the kitchen couch and continued to talk on her cell phone. Norman came in, and stood in the door, hesitating to tell his dad Grandma's request.
Because his Grandmother was dead, and he could see her ghost as well as other ghosts, but his family didn't believe him. "Uh, Dad, Grandma wants you to turn up the heat, her feet are ice-cold." said Norman.
Perry fell off the stool. "Now, Perry..." said Sandra. "Norman, we've been through this a million times. Your grandmother is dead." said Perry. "I know that." said Norman.
"Then why do you keep talking to her?" he asked. "Because she talks to me." answered Norman. "You are such a liar." said Courtney, placing her arm on Perry's shoulder.
"I'm not lying, she talks to me all the time." said Norman. "Oh yeah, prove it." said Courtney. Norman gave a clever look, and said. "She says it's not very ladylike to keep a picture of the high school quarterback with his shirt off in your underwear drawer."
Courtney gave a shocked look. "You little creep, you've been snooping through my privacy." she said. "But I haven't." said Norman. "Arrg, you are so annoying." said Courtney, leaving the room.
"Now Norman I know you and Grandma were very close. But she's in a better place now." said Sandra. "No she's not she's in the living room." said Norman.
Then his parents got into an argument about each other's family. Norman slipped up to his room, and started playing with his zombie action figures.
Then he walked over to the door, and listened to the argument. "Norman's not going to end up like that uncle of yours." said Perry. "Come on, I bet he doesn't even know what Norman looks like." said Sandra.
Norman then sat on his bed. "It's hard to live in a family that doesn't understand you." he said to himself.
Well that's chapter 1, please review.
Chapter 2: Melinda Gordon
Meanwhile while all that was happening, across town at Blithe Hollow Mental Facility, an 11-year-old girl patient named Melinda Gordon was playing with her zombie action figures.
Suddenly she felt a tap on her shoulder. She turned around to see the ghost of her grandfather. "Hi, Grandpa." she said. "How's my little Linda?" he asked. Melinda smiled, she liked it when he called by the nickname he'd given her when he was alive.
"I was just playing with my action figures." she answered. Just then Melinda's doctor, Dr. Talbot came in. "Hello, Melinda. What are you up to?" he asked
"I was just talking to Grandpa." said Melinda. Dr. Talbot looked up and of course saw nothing. "Yes, well your parents are out on the patio waiting to see you." he said.
"Mom and Dad, did you hear that Grandpa, Mom and Dad are here." said Melinda happily, running out of the room. "Say hi to them for me." said Grandpa.
When Melinda got outside she saw her parents waving to her. "Hi Mom, hi Dad." she said hugging them. "Hello, sweetie." said Belinda, her mom. "How you doing kiddo?" asked Ryan, her dad.
"Fine, and Grandpa says hi." said Melinda. Her parents looked at each other. The reason Melinda was in a mental facility was because of her ability. Her parents thought she was doing that because she was mentally ill, and sent her to stay in the facility until they found out the problem, and Melinda actually thought she was mentally ill.
"So what have you been up to?" asked Ryan. "Well I saw a new zombie movie, talked with Grandpa, met some hippies, and played with the facility's old dog." explained Melinda.
"Well that's nice." said Belinda. Soon it was almost time for Melinda to go to sleep, so she was sent to her room. Soon after her parents gave her hugs and kisses goodbye Dr. Talbot came in with a clipboard.
"We got your CAT SCAN back, Melinda want to see?" he asked. "Yeah." said Melinda. The doctor handed her the x-ray and Melinda was amazed by it. When Dr. Talbot left he talked to her parents, and Melinda listened in the conversation.
"Well?" asked Ryan. "Well we've observed the x-ray, but we still can't find anything out of the ordinary." said Dr. Talbot. Melinda sat on her bed looking sad. "Why the frown, Linda?" asked Grandpa.
"Dr. Talbot still doesn't know what's wrong with me. And Mom and Dad are worried." said Melinda. "Hang in there sweetie." he said. Melinda got into bed, and her grandpa pulled the covers over her, and stroked her hair, and she fell asleep.
