The ghost girl
The wind blew hard against the old school house as Hajime and I walked by. We both shot worried glances over there before hurrying on towards our destination. My thoughts were scrambled as my house came into view and my heart was beating faster than normal. Hajime looked at me curiously.
"Satsuki, are you all right?" he asked me.
I nodded. "Yeah, it's just…well…something's wrong."
He looked at me, a worried expression plastered on his face. "Wrong how?"
"I don't know. It started when we passed the old school house and now I just can't shake it. It's not like the appearance of a ghost. I don't know what it is."
Hajime nodded before stepping into his front yard. "Well, if you need anything just give me a call, all right?"
"Yeah, sure." I muttered then walked up to my house. The door stood open a crack and my heart skipped a beat. I ran inside and down the hall. "Keiichirou!" I screamed out my younger brother's name before I even thought about how worried I was about him. "Keiichirou!"
The boy appeared in front of me and I nearly fell over. "Jeez, Keiichirou, you nearly gave me a heart attack."
"Well, you were calling me. What is it? You sounded scared."
"Have you seen anything strange?"
He shook his head. "No, I only got home a second ago."
My heart returned to its normal beating then I growled in frustration. "You left the front door open. What were you thinking?"
"Oh, I thought I had closed it. It's no big deal, Satsuki."
I rolled my eyes. "Whatever. Then marched up the stairs to my bedroom. I sat down on my bed with its many pillows before letting my eyes drift shut.
The noise of someone screaming awoke me. I scrambled to my feet a looked around my dark room. How long had I been asleep? And who was that screaming?
I raced down the stairs and out into the living room where Keiichirou sat on couch screeching as if he had just seen a ghost (which didn't surprise me much.) while his eyes were fixed on the TV screen where he was watching The Mummy. I rolled my eyes and sat down onto the couch next to my brother.
"Would, you, quit screaming. You're gonna wake up the dead."
"Like that would be anything new." He muttered.
"Shut up." I said as I stood up and walked away back up to my bedroom.. I shivered and tried to get rid of that feeling that had just suddenly come. I walked over to my nightstand and picked up the phone. I quickly dialed Hajime's number. He answered on the fourth ring.
"Hello?" He voice sounded tired.
"Hajime? It's Satsuki. I was wondering…if you could…well…Do you want to go for a walk?"
Silence followed my question.
"Did you hear me? Bout the walk. I mean it's not a date. I just want to talk about…ghosts and stuff."
"Sure. I'll be over in a little bit."
We hung up then I went downstairs and stopped in the living room where only moments ago Keiichirou had sat watching the TV. I glance around, my heart speeding up again. "Keiichirou!" I raced into the kitchen and I let out a sigh of relief. The boy stood at the refrigerator's headphones over his ears while he looked for something to eat.
"Keiichirou!" I shouted into his music filled ear. He glance up at me then pulled the headphones down so they lay around his neck.
"What?" he asked the annoyed tone not hard to miss.
"I'm going for a walk with…I'm going for a walk. I'll be back in a little while. Don't go anywhere and don't open the door for strangers. Do you understand?"
He grinned at me. "You're going with Hajime aren't you."
"No. I don't like Hajime."
"Yeah, right. Hajime and Satsuki sitting in a tree. K-I-S-S-I-N-G. First comes love then comes marriage. Here comes their baby sitting in a baby carriage. That's not all. That's not all. Here comes a kid playing basket ball. That's not all. That's not all. Here comes a kid playing with a Barbie doll." he sang.
"Shut up!" I shouted lunging at the boy. He laughed and easily dodged me. I was now blind with rage as I stormed out of the house slamming the door behind me.
Hajime was waiting beside his house when I stepped onto the street. He sprinted to catch up with me then stopped.
"What's wrong, Satsuki." he asked.
I shook my head. "It's nothing. Just Keiichirou."
"Oh. I get it."
We walked in silence for a while then Hajime brought up the subject about the ghosts. "So what was it about the ghosts that you wanted to talk about?"
"I got that funny feeling again. In my room after Keiichirou freaked out while watching the Mummy. I mean it feels so weird and I just can't place it."
"Do you think that it would be in the ghost diary?"
"No. I already told you that I don't think that it's a ghost. It feels different."
Hajime nodded his head. "Ok."
We walked in silence again until the old school house came into the view. I stopped my walking and turned to look at Hajime. "Do you feel it?" I asked him.
He cocked his head to the side then slowly nodded. "Yes. Yeah, just slightly though."
We walked up to the old building my breath coming out quick and raspy. Never in my life had I felt such total and complete fear. Never before. I looked up at the walls that had peeling paint and the shutters that hung from only one hinge. The fear welled up inside of me.
Suddenly my blood ran cold as the air in front of me shimmered and began to grow heavier and thicker. I scooted closer to Hajime for protection, but he didn't seem to see it. He only glance at me, his eyebrows raised, then said in a slow voice.
"Satsuki, I…I…I didn't know—"
"Shh. Don't you see it? Don't you feel it? The energy? The power? The fear?"
He looked around then his breathing stopped. The air was now swirling and blowing our clothing and hair in every direction. I leaned closer to Hajime tears stinging my eyes.
"What is it?" I asked.
"I don't know. Get the ghost diary."
I nodded and pulled the old book out of my backpack. I flipped through the pages. Looking for something. Anything. The wind had finally taken on a form. A young girl about our age. Her face was pale and she had long black hair. Her black eyes lay sunken inside of her head. Neither me nor Hajime said anything. We just stared at the girl or ghost or whatever she was. The ghost girl blinked slowly as she stared at us then let a whoosh of air escape out of her mouth. I began to turn the pages of the ghost diary as fast as I could searching for a way to get rid of this girl.
"It's not in here, Hajime!" I screamed. "I don't know how to get rid of her!"
The girl glanced at me then took a step forward.
"Don't move!" Hajime shouted, then leaned over the book to help me.
The girl rolled her eyes then whispered in a quiet echoing voice. "You won't find anythin' 'bout me in that ol' book o' yours."
I looked back up at her. "And what makes you think that?"
"Cause I ain't no ghost." she grinned at me. "And anyway I think you should be lookin' for a way to get rid o' my…uh…partner. If you'd like to call 'im that." She grinned again. "Would ya quit wastin' your time lookin' for me in the ol' book cause there ain't no way I'm in there."
Hajime ignored the girl and continued whipping through the pages. I stared at her then said in a shaking voice. "Then what are you. You just appeared here."
Her smile faded. "I'm human just like you and your friend, but I'm a little different, that's all."
"No. There's no way that you're human. You just freaking appeared in front of me!"
She wagged her head. "If only you could understand."
"Keep looking, Hajime." I said over my shoulder. "Look for a ghost that doesn't know she's a ghost."
As we both stared at the book's pages the girl took her leave. Slowly walking down the street. Or was she gliding?
