Author's Note: This is a story based on the movie "The Sixth Sense", but the characters are almost the same.
It's a sequel to the movie, six years after everything happened. Now Cole's 15 years, he has accepted his powers and has helped many ghosts… But what will happen when he meets a very special one?
I don't have to say that I don't own any of the characters of the movie, they're owned by M. Night Shyamalan (except for Fiona and Jeremy). This fic is TOTALLY written by me. And if you see any similarity with any fic out there, it's merely coincidental.
Enjoy my fic. Thank you for reading!
"My Ghostly Love"
By Danielle Swinton"Death is not a limit to love… and be loved"
"I'm not going to see you anymore, am I?"
"I think we've said everything we needed to say… Maybe it's time to say things to someone closer to you"
"Maybe we can pretend like we're going to see each other tomorrow… just to pretend"
"Okay… I'm going to go now… I'll see you tomorrow, Cole"
*Chapter One: The First Encounter*
Six years have passed since the last time I saw Dr. Crowe. We both knew it would be our final meeting. Anyways, I'll never forget his kindness and all he did for me. Now I've accepted my gift, and I'm not afraid of dead people anymore… I guess it's because I'm pretty used to it.
"Cole! Wake up! You're going to be late for school!" my mom said one morning. I woke up yawning and went to the bathroom, took a shower, changed my clothes and went to the kitchen to get some breakfast. Mom had already left to work, and I prepared my breakfast, since now that I'm 15 my mom says I'm capable to do it by myself. I'm a good cook now, but my first few attempts… we just won't talk about them.
I got out to the bus stop and I saw my friend Jeremy, who was waiting for me to take the bus to school. Needless to say that I haven't seen Tommy Tammisimo since I finished 6th grade. He moved to Hollywood with his family because he wanted to be a famous actor. I've seen him in some commercials and stuff like that, but he hasn't been in a movie yet…
Jeremy isn't very different from Tommy. He's one of the most popular guys in high school because he was part of the football team. He also has a great girlfriend, Madison. His life just seems so perfect… but he has several problems in his house. His mom left him when he was 10, and his father was an alcoholic; he lives with his aunt. Well, Jeremy is more mature and serious than Tommy was. He's not my best friend, but… he's my friend… do you know what I mean?
We arrived to school just in time, before the bell rang. I went to my boring Math class. I was almost asleep when I felt a piece of paper hitting my head. I looked behind me and there was a girl sitting 2 seats behind me. She had a slightly tanned skin, was thin, had brown hair and green eyes. She was staring at me, with a slight smile. I didn't understand what was going on, but she pointed to the front and I saw Mr. Cunningham (the teacher) in front of my desk.
"I know that Math may not be very pleasant to you, Mr. Sear" he said "But I'm afraid you'll have to stay after class" Everybody laughed. I got a detention. Oh, just great.
The class finished and everybody was leaving. I tried to find the girl who distracted me, but her seat was empty. Oh, well… I could try to find her later, because I had to stay in detention for 2 hours. When I got out… guess what?, I saw her again! This time, she was in front of the door, still smiling at me. I was going to reach her when I felt a hand holding my shoulder.
"What…?" I said. It was Jeremy.
"Hey, what happened now, freak?" he asked. I put a somewhat angry face. He KNEW I hated to be called 'freak'
"I was just looking behind me…nothing important"
"Yeah, I know that already. But what were you looking at?"
"A girl" I said.
"A girl? Wow! So… who's your new friend?" he asked, surprised.
"I don't know! I just saw her for the first time. She seems to be a new girl"
"New girl? That's odd. Nobody in class has seen a new girl around" Jeremy said "How does she look like?"
"Umm… she's thin, has tanned skin, brown hair and green eyes"
"I haven't seen any girl who looks like that… it might have been your imagination" he told me. How strange. Jeremy hadn't seen her? He knows everybody at school…
"Well, maybe" I said, trying to avoid him so I could follow the girl. But he pulled me to the restrooms.
"Look, Madison is planning a party" he said "Wanna come?"
"Jeremy, you know parties aren't my thing"
"Come on, man! You never go to parties. It's going to be the talk of school. You don't know what you'll be missing" Jeremy insisted "It's going to be in 3 weeks, so you have plenty of time to think about it"
"Okay" I said, and I left to go home.
That night, at dinner, I could barely pay attention to my mom's questions about my day. I was still thinking about that girl. I was wondering who she was. She had something special, but I couldn't tell what…
