"This is breaking news!" Yasmin slowly opened her eyes as her mom turned the t.v. on, full blast. "A body has been found under the old stone bridge of Castlemoore. The police has been notified and they already have identified the body. Here's news reporter, Jenny Nuw"

"What happened?" Yasmin asked as she walked down the stairs. She sat in front of the t.v.

"This is news reporter, Jenny Nuw. The body found was 15 year old, Joyce Mckey. She was stabbed, hung and brutally injured when a witness found her body in the water." Yasmin gulped.

"Mom.. I know this sounds strange but.. Arielle is killing my friends" Her mom froze and turned towards her.

"Arielle is gone though.."

"But she is!" Yasmin interupted. "She's angry at me. And when Arielle got angry, she got REALLY angry" It got silent for a minute.

"Are you okay, Yasmin?" she asked.

"Mom! I'm not crazy!" she yelled. "Joyce is dead and so will my other friends.. Including me" Yasmin sat down at the kitchen table and poured herself a bowl of cereal.

"Yasmin" her mom sat down with her as she stabbed the cereal with her spoon. "I think you're at the time when you're morning someone.. You think that they're still here..."

"You do think I'm crazy" she snarled.

"I don't-"

"You're implying it" Yasmin said. She took her bowl of cereal and went upstairs.

Ring.

"Hello?"

"Sebastian? Are you awake?" she asked. She could hear him yawn on the other end of the phone.

"Yeah. Is this important? You're wasting my minutes" he said.

"Yeah, it is. No one knows who killed Joyce right?"

"Yeah" Yasmin paused for a moment.

"I know who"

"Who?" Sebastian seemed wide awake now.

"You might think I'm stupid but.. It's Arielle" she replied. It was dead silent until Sebastian spoke.

"You mean the paranormal?"

"What?" she asked confused.

"Ghosts" he said. "Do you mean the spirit of Arielle is killing people?"

"Mm. Do you believe me?" she softly asked.

"Yeah." Yasmin let out a sigh of relief. Sebastian ws the one you could count on.

"That means... We're all gonna die.." he mumbled.

"I'm so sorry...."

"Which means Nyssa is gonna die. I don't want her to." he finished. Even though Sebastian knew everyone was going to die, he cared about Nyssa's life more than his.

"This is all my fault.."

"No it's not. You're who you are; are really nice girl who can't make decisions. and Arielle is that great girl-who we all know-won't go down without a fight."

"If you stop being my friend, do you think she'll stop hurting everyone?" she asked.

"Too bad, I'm in this with you. Im not leaving you" he replied.

"It's your funeral' Yasmin mumbled.

"Friends stick together, alright?" he said. "I gotta go anyways. Call me if anything happens" They both hung up the phone. Yasmin picked up her phone and redialed him. "Yeah?"

"Wanna tell Aiden and Landyn?"

"You do it. I don't wanna tell. They won't believe me"

"They won't believe me either" she interupted.

"Well, they have to" he said "If they don't... Like you said, their funeral. But we shouldn't stress them or anything."

"Maybe the do fear for their lives because of Joyce" Yasmin added, nervously. It was her fault they were going to die. Sebastian feels fine with it but they all aren't like him. "Hello?" The phone started make noise and eventually cut off "Sebastian? Hello?"

Beep Beep Beep.

"Damn it" she said as she clicked her phone off. "Mom?"

Creak.. Creak.. Creak.. The guest room.

Don't go.., she thought to herself. Don't go to the guest room..

"I'll come to you..." Yasmin slowly spun her head around and there stood a dead, pale looking Arielle. "Let's play tag Yasmin.. I'm it" Yasmin froze until Arielle ran towards her and held onto her neck "Die bitch, DIE!" Yasmin started to cough until she elbowed Arielle and ran and locked the bedroom door outside as she began to run around her house. Looking for a exit, she ran to the bathdoor door. Her hands trumbled as she locked the bathroom door. Yasmin tried to open the bathroom window but it was shut tight.

"Come on, come on, come on!" she quietly told herself. The window wouldn't budge open.

"Come on, Yasmin! You're destined to die someday!" Arielle banged on the door a couple of times.

"Not by you, you son of a bitch!" she yelled back. Arielle smashed the door opened and lunged after her. She strangled her as Arielle slammed Yasmin in the bathtub. Yasmin hit her head on the ledge and started to feel weak. Yasmin held onto to Arielle's grip, trying to loosen it. She started to scream until someone shook her on her shoulder. She flashed her eyes wide opened and began to cough continuously.

"Yasmin?" he mom shook her on the shoulder again. "Yasmin? Are you alright?" Yasmin shook her head and touched her neck. A burning sensation happened as she touched her neck. The phone made loud beeping sounds as her mom called 911. An ambulance soon arrived.
