Chapter One: The One Where Anna Returns to NYC

It had been a long time, but I was finally home. One of my mother's last wishes was for me to finish my schooling at Abbey Mount and then to go to Oxford. I had finally gotten my Doctorate in Literature. I had many plans for my new life in New York, but the first thing on my agenda was to see Peter, Egon, and Ray. I went down to the university and to the Paranormal and Parapsychology Studies Department. I had Egon send me a map a few weeks before I left London. I found the door open and I walked in. "Peter? Ray? Egon?" I called looking around. Someone came out of one of the offices. It took me a minute to realize who he was, a smile formed on my face. "Ray!" He looked so different from the last time I saw him a year ago, happier almost.

He came over to me very surprised, "Anna, is that you?"

"It is." I smiled.

He hugged me, "I haven't seen you since-."

"It's good to see you too, Ray." I told him before he could finish. No one else knew about my little trip back here a year ago for his birthday.

"Does anyone know you're here?" He asked as he let go, "Did anyone know you were coming?"

"Egon was the only one who knew I was coming and you're the only one who knows I'm here as far as I know."

"He never told us you were coming back." Ray told me. It was good to know that Egon kept my secret, although he always did.

"I wanted it to be a surprise."

"Wait, until Peter sees you, he's doing a research study now," Ray looked at the clock on the wall where the door was, "Actually, he should be done by now or getting close to it, and we've got to meet Egon at the library."

"Why the library?"

"A librarian just had an encounter with a ghost!" He replied ecstatically, "Egon's already down there."

"Then let's go get Peter and see what's going on." I replied excitedly.

We started to walk down to the one of the Paranormal Studies offices, a lanky frustrated student with a mass of dark brown hair passed us; Ray looked at the student perplexed, and then started to speak again to divert my attention, "So what have you been up to?"

"I just finished getting my doctorate in Literature; I want to be a writer."

"Not surprising." He replied intrigued, "Do you have any ideas yet?"

"I want to do something about the paranormal or realistic fantasy. Some type of series. But beyond that I have absolutely no idea. I was hoping to find it here."

"At the university?"

"No, no, just in New York."

"Oh, I hope you find what you're looking for." He replied, just as we got there, "I just have to get Pete about the library." He opened the door to reveal my brother talking with a female student, "This is it! This is definitely it!" He exclaimed to Peter as he went inside, I watched from the doorway as the two interacted. Ray grabbed a video camera off of the counter top, "Have those UV senses come in for the video camera? I need it. And that blank tape that you erased yesterday." Ray went to the end of the table.

"Will you excuse me for a second?" Peter went over to Ray, jumped up, so he could smack the back of his head, "I'm right in the middle of something Ray!"

"Are you here for the tests?" The blonde girl asked me, when she saw me standing in the doorway. She was probably at least four or five years younger than me.

"No, I'm just visiting." I smiled as a tiny plan form in my head, "I have a feeling that you were here for the tests though and you were getting them all right, but the person with you wasn't."

"Yes, Dr. Venkman said I had a gift." She replied a little in awe and surprise.

"I don't doubt that" I replied, finishing in my head, 'He'd make up any lie if it meant it would keep a woman around him longer.'

Ray came over to me, "Let's go. Pete'll join us in a minute, he's going to say goodbye."

Right after we walked out of the room, I replied with a laugh, "Yeah, sure, and then he's going to make a date with psychic Barbie."

"He wouldn't. She's a student."

"Wanna bet on it?"

"Okay fine."

"Five bucks says that he'll meet her here at eight. She'll suggest the time." I replied. We went back in and listened to his goodbye. I was right. I looked at Ray, his jaw dropped slightly. We went back out the door. I skipped the 'I told you so' and went straight to, "You owe me five bucks."

Ray gave me the money, "How did you know that was going to happen?"

"I know my brother," I replied, "Plus I talk to Egon."

The girl left first. Peter was a few minutes behind her, his eyes went wide when he saw me, "Anna?!"

"Hey Pete." I smiled. He pulled me into a massive hug.

"When did you… How did you...What are you…" He started multiple times and finally decided, "It's good to see you, Anna."

"I'm happy to see you too, Pete." I replied, after a few seconds I added, "You're squishing me!" He laughed and let go. We headed out to meet Egon.
