Chapter 1 Somethings Starting...

The rain was coming down hard, it was a very cold and stormy night. Danny walked down the sidewalk. He was alone and no one else was around. Then he saw his sister and Tucker.

"Hey guys!" he shouted. But for some reason they didn't seem to hear him. He ran in front of them, "Hey what's wrong with you guys?"

Danny gasped as they walked through him. He looked down at his hands, "What?" his hand was transparent! He turned and saw his parents coming. "Mom? Dad?"

They didn't acknowledge him in any way.

He reached out to touch them, "What's the matter with you guys? Can't you see me?" his hand went through them.

They walked on never looking back.

No one else could see or hear him. But why?

Then suddenly he turned into his ghost form. He gasped. Things started to disappear and everything became black around him, "W-what's happening?"

Lightning flashed. He turned.

"Sam!" he shouted, his voice echoing through the darkness. Sam... Sam... Sam...
Sam stood in the middle of the void. She was wet, her hair was down, eyes closed and her arms were crossed flat against her chest.

"Sam?" Sam... Sam... Sam...
As he came closer to her he realized she was crying.

"What's wrong?" He asked her, "Why are you crying? What's freaking you out?" Out... Out... Out...
Her eyes opened, she looked at him but she seemed so distant.

"What's wrong?" Wrong... Wrong... Wrong..

Suddenly claws sprouted from his finger tips, and fangs from his mouth. His eyes glowed red. Feelings started to fade out of his heart. He felt like nothing was left, the only emotion he felt was lust to kill.

"What's happening to me!" To me... To me... To me...

Danny looked at his hands. They were soaked in blood. He looked up. Blood trickled down her cheek. Her eyes were sad, a feeling of being betrayed clearly on her face. He gasped at what he'd done. He looked down at his hands again then looked up at her. She looked down.

He looked down at his body and gasped. His body was disinigrating! He was starting to disappear! When he looked up he realized she was starting to disappear as well.

"Sam!" he exclaimed, trying to get closer to her. Sam... Sam... Sam...

Darkness grew even thicker around her until she slowly faded away.

"I don't want... to hurt... you..." Hurt you... Hurt you... Hurt... Hurt... You... You... You...


Danny sat up quickly, he was breathing heavily, his body soaked in a deep sweat. He looked around panic striken. But everything was normal again. Nothing.. Just his room surounded him.

He leaned forward sinking his face into his hands. This nightmare had been haunting him for six days now. Never stopping, never changing, but always right on time. You'd think with all the weird freaky work he had to do things like this wouldn't faze him a bit. But it did, and it scared him.

"It was just a dream..." he told himself, "Stop worrying about it!"

He looked out the window next to his bed. Just a dream...


Danny sat in the school room, totally spaced. He was so tired. He had stayed up almost the whole night catching ghosts and putting them back into the Ghost Zone. He could barely keep his eyes open! Plus he couldn't even try to concentrate! His mind was too filled with other things. I'm so tired. I wonder how many ghosts I'll have to catch tonight. Does Tucker really think he can get away with wearing boxers on his head? Why the heck did he even do that? I wonder what Sam's thinking about... Aside from all those thoughts his mind was really focused on this dream he'd been having! Not a dream! A nightmare! Why was he having this dream? What did this mean? Then he started to drift off again. What would my parents think if they found out I'm a ghost? What would anyone think? Why did this happen to me in the first place? What else is going to happen to me? What if I-

His thoughts were interupted by a ruler being smacked down on his desk.

"What's the answer?" the teacher questioned.

The ruler startled him back to reality, but he still wasn't thinking straight.

"I'm not a ghost!" he exclaimed standing to his feet.

The room filled with laughter.

He smacked his forehead when he realized what he had said.

"No, I'm sorry." the teacher said, "That's not the answer."

He crumpled down in his seat his face blushing with embarressment.


"I don't care what you say!" Sam argued, "Boxers on your head does not look cool!"

"But I could start a trend!" Tucker insisted, "Pretty soon everyone will be walking around with their underwear on their heads!"

Sam shook her head, "I can't believe I'm even sitting at the same table as you!" she looked at Danny, "Please tell him that that is not cool!"
Danny continued to stir his food in a circle with his fork.

"Hello?" she said waving her hand in front of his face.

He snapped out of it, "Hmm?"

"Don't you think that's stupid?"

"I don't know!" he snapped, "Why don't you just leave him alone!"

Sam and Tucker exchanged looks, "Are you okay?" Tucker asked.

He closed his eyes and bit his lip, "Yeah, sure, I'm fine."
"Ya know you've been really off lately." Sam pointed out, "Is something wrong?"

He looked down, "No." he looked up," Yes!" he looked down, "I mean.. I don't know..."

Sam looked at him concerned, "Danny?"

"Why don't you just drop it!" he lashed out, "Okay!" he left the table.

Tucker and Sam looked at each other.


Danny sighed as he walked down the hallway. He didn't mean to snap at his friends. He had just been so stressed lately! And that stupid nightmare really wasn't helping at all!

Finally he came to his locker. He reached out to turn the dile and to his surprise his hand went through and his body slammed against the door.

He growled. I hate when that happens!

He was about to try again when suddenly he turned into ghost form. He gasped. I didn't do that!

Luckily everyone was at lunch so no one saw. He turned himself back to normal.

The suddenly something pulsed through him! It was like a bolt of electricity hit him. For a moment he turned into his ghost from but then he turned back to normal.

He put his hand on his forehead. What's happening to me?

Something really weird was happening. Something strange was starting...

Authore's note: Don't get mad about the boxer on the head thing. That kid is strange. I wouldn't put anything past him.
