A Ghostwriter Fanfiction

Written By Stef With an F


Disclaimer: I don't own these characters. Except for my originals such as Michelle and Chris. I think CTV Workshop owns them. Either way, I am not making money on this.

Story Notes: Similar to the the Ghost Writer Books, When Ghost Writer talks it will be in all caps, this story was first written years ago. I am going to post it in parts, and make some possible edits along the way. I hope to write more Ghost Writer stories in the future as the muse behaves.

Rating: This story is rated T for adult themes, which include profanity, sexual themes, and violence.

Character ages: Alex, Rob, Lenni, and Jamal are 19, Gaby and Hector are 16 (yes, I aged him a bit). Casey is not in this story though she is mentioned once.


Chapter 1

This story, is set four years after the last episode. Locations of the story will be revealed within.

***************************

WHAT IS THIS THAT YOU ARE DOING?

Alex blinked in shock.

"Alex are you alright?" asked his friend Michelle.

"Yeah, I'm alright," said Alex.

"You acted like you just saw a ghost," said Michelle.

Alex smiled.

"I'm fine, I just thought about someone I haven't thought about in years," responded Alex.

"Alright," Michelle as she turned back to her worksheet. But she also kept her left eye on what Alex was doing.

Alex took out a blank piece of paper, and wrote:

"College work"

YOU ARE IN COLLEGE? A UNIVERSITY?! CONGRATULATIONS!!!

"Thanks, it's been a long time…"

HOW LONG?

"About four years."

WOW

"Well, I'm glad to see you but why now?"

I DON'T KNOW

"Are you writing a letter to that friend?" asked Michelle.

"Yeah," answered Alex.

"Goodnight, Calvin," said Gaby.

Calvin stepped closer to Gaby and kissed her on the lips. "Goodnight."

Gaby's eyes popped open. "What was that?"

"I though we were having fun tonight. Is something wrong?" asked Calvin.

"No, it just surprised me a little..." Gaby answered.

She kissed Calvin again. "Goodnight."

Calvin walked off the porch, waving at Gaby one last time before entering his car, and driving away.

"Gaby?" said a voice.

Startled, Gaby turned around.

"Hector?!" she almost shouted. "What are you doing here? Umm, I mean... Did you see Calvin and me? You are not going to say anything, are you?"

"Alex is going to kill him!" shouted Hector.

"Not if you keep your mouth shut!"

"Is he nice to you?"

"Yes, Hector, don't worry. He's not a creep like that anymore."

Hector just gave Gaby the look.

"Really!"

"If you say so, just be careful."

"I will. You are not telling Alex? Or even the others?"

"No, I promise."

"Good, so what's up?"

"I thought we could watch a video together? I brought over Back to the Future," shows Gaby the video.

Gaby laughs, "Again? Sure".

SO YOU ARE IN A UNIVERSITY TOO?

Jamal smiled.

Jamal grabbed an empty piece of paper.

"Yes, Columbia, with Alex," he wrote.

"When you are alone, just look at the stars, and you will know, you and I will together, forever, baby…" Lenni sang.

"I don't know Lenni, that sounds a little, 'Somewhere Out There' to me," said Twan.

"Whatever, that's a totally different song!" shouted Lenni.

"Would you two stop fighting?" asked Tina. "I'm sick of having to edit these tapes."

"Well, if Lenni would just, let me play something like this…"

The midnight sky, was clear, not even a star shined that night.

"Mmm…I'm not suere. Does that work?" Rob said as he moved his fingers to the backspace key.

Rob sighed. "This should be getting easier, that's what they say anyway!

Rob saved the document. And started on a new page.

Writing exercise, number 13, yup, I'm stuck again. I was told my Professor Simmons that Freewriting is a good way to sort out thoughts, well let's see.

IF AT FIRST YOU DON'T SUCCEED, TRY, TRY AGAIN.

Ghostwriter! Wow, what a sight for sore eyes!

MAYBE YOU SHOULD TAKE A BREAK FROM THE COMPUTER SCREEN…JOKE

Ha ha, it's been a long time though. Where did you go?

THERE WERE SOME OTHER KIDS THAT NEEDED ME. BUT…NOW, I AM NEEDED AT HOME…

Have the others seen you yet?

ALEX AND JAMAL, BUT THEY WERE IN CLASS.

Ah, yes, Columbia.

GOOD UNIVERSITY

Yes.

DO YOU GO TO A UNIVERSITY TOO?

New York University: Tisch School of Arts

WORKING ON YOUR STORIES?

FANTASTIC!

Thank you, GW.

ANYTIME.

Gaby and Hector are watching "Back to the Future" with the captions on. It's toward the end of the movie; Doc Brown is waiting for Marty at the Clock Tower.

GABRIELLA! WHAT ARE YOU WATCHING?!?

"Ghostwriter!" Hector and Gaby shout in unison.

Gaby finds the video box and traces the title with her fingers.

THIS FILM CONTAINS PROFANITIES. IT IS NOT PROPER…

Gaby fishes a pen out of the End Table, she hasn't wore her Ghostwriter pen in years.

I'm sorry. It's a really good movie. Most of it is pretty clean…

WELL, I HOPE SO

Gaby and Hector laugh.

Hector is the one that writes now.

It is. Long time no see, a lot has changed since we last saw you…

YES, I KNOW

Hector: Well, it's great to see you again.

HOME.
