CHAPTER ONE: Lilith
Waking up one day in the firehouse HQ of the Ghostbusters is
Dr. Ray Stantz. He stretched and yawned. He had a flashback
dream that he kept having for over a month. Before the team
fought Gozer, Ray was on a mission at Fort Demerring, in which
he encountered a lovely woman ghost who kissed him. From there,
Ray got twitterpatted.
Ray sighed and got up and he slipped into his Ghostbusters
jumpsuit. He was ready for a new day.
In the kitchen were Dr. Peter Venkman and his fiancee, Dana Barrett,
Prof. Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddmore, the GB's receptionist, Janine
Melntiz, and the GB's accountant, Louis Tully. Oh yeah, and the company's
mascott, Slimer AKA Onionhead.
Ray entered the kitchen.
"Morning, guys," he said.
"Oh, hey, Ray," said Venkman. "What'll it be? Waffles
"Make 'em yourself."
Ray scowled at Venkman.
"Kidding! Come on, humor me."
"That was rude, not funny," said Ray.
"Stop it, you two," said Dana. "Just calm down and let's eat."
"Yeah," said Louis. "And hurry. I don't wanna miss '20 Minute Workout'."
"Okay, okay," said Venkman, making Ray's waffles.
Ray sat down at the table. He noticed that Egon was updating
the P.K.E. Meter.
"How's the upgrade going, Egon?" asked Ray.
"Almost done," said Egon. "Just have to add some finishing touches
and we get a P.K.E. Meter with better frequency and better reception."
"Cool," said Ray.
Ray started thinking about the dream he had. He remembered the kiss
he got from the lady ghost. It was obvious that Ray was in love with
a 150-year-old ghost woman.
"Hey, Ray, you okay?" asked Winston.
"Hmm? Oh, yeah. I had that dream again."
"Oh, the girl ghost at the old fort?"
"That's the one. Boy, she was lovely."
"Do you remember her name?" asked Dana.
"Her name was Lilith. Look, I know what you're thinking: I'm
crazy to be in love with a 150-year-old ghost lady."
"I think so," said Venkman as he served waffles for Ray.
"Want some maple syrup?" asked Venkman.
"I'll take care of that, thank you," said Ray, taking the Mrs. Butterworth's
bottle of syrup.
After breakfast, Venkman was pacing back and forth, bored out of his
"Janine, any calls?" he asked.
"Not yet, Venkman," said Janine, also bored.
Venkman groaned. "We haven't had any opportunities for two
days. I want to bust ghosts."
Ray slided down the pole, wearing normal attire.
"Be back in a bit," said Ray. "Gotta go open my new Occult Book
Store. We're giving out copies of Tobin's Spirit Guide."
"Okay, just be back soon," said Venkman. "Never know when we'll
have a call or something."
"Don't worry," said Ray. "I won't be long."
Ray left the firehouse. As he was walking to his new store, he noticed
a little boy being bullied.
Ray couldn't help but worry. He decided to stop this.
"STOP!" said the bullied boy.
"Name one reason why we should," said one bully.
"Uh... I got cooties!"
"Yeah, right!" said another bully.
"What's going on?" Ray asked as he came up to the situation.
"This dum-dum called us jerks because we don't believe in ghosts."
"Well, they are real," said Ray.
"How do you know, old man?" said a bully.
"Because I'm a Ghostbuster."
"GHOSTBUSTERS? Aww, they're fake."
"They are not!" yelled the bullied boy. "They proved to the world
that ghosts exist!"
"Baloney! Ghosts aren't real."
"Then how do you explain the Gozer thing? The giant Stay Puft
Marshmallow Man? I was there."
The bullied boy had got them there.
"You know what? Forget this! Come on, let's hit the video arcade."
The bullies let go of the bullied boy and leave for the arcade.
"Thanks for saving me," said the boy.
"No problem," said Ray. "Want me to walk you home?"
"You mean to the orphanage? No thanks. Like I have any other place
"Why don't you come with me to my new store? I got some cool
"Okay, Mr. Ghostbuster," said the boy with a smile.
"I'm Dr. Ray Stantz, by the way. What's your name, small fry?"
"Nice to meet you, Jeff. Hey, how about later I show you Ghostbusters HQ?"
"You'd do that?" asked Jeff, eyes aglow.
"Why not? You seem like a good kid. Besides, I think you need
Jeff couldn't be any more happier. He gave Ray a hug.
As the two of them walked, Ray saw something paranormal.
Lights were flashing in the Sedgewick Hotel. A maniacal laugh
"Now what do you suppose is going on here?"
