"Come on Eli, we have to get my body back and this ghost to cross over." Melinda said as she tugged on Eli's arm.
"Ok, where is she?" Eli asked as he got up and went to his closet. Melinda sat on his couch.
"She said that she has to go to work today, Same As It Never Was Antiques, she is going to my job. And Eli what are you doing?" Melinda asked.
"Getting dressed I don't think Delia would appreciate seeing me in my boxers and I have to brush my hair and teeth." Eli replied.
"Gosh you are such a girl." Melinda said with a laugh. 45 minutes later Eli was driving to Same As It Never Was Antiques. Melinda appeared in the seat next to him.
"Wow, I love being able to just poof up anywhere I want." Melinda said with a smile. Eli jumped and the car swerved.
"Melinda, you scared me. Don't do that you want me dead too." Eli said with a little bit of anger in his voice.
"You said too." Melinda said
"Oh I didn't mean it; it's just when I can't see people it usually means that they are dead." Eli said
"How much longer?" Melinda asked.
"About 5 minutes." Eli replied. "Why don't you go poof into the shop and try to get Carmen out of your body?" Eli asked.
"That sounds like a good idea." Melinda said and with that she was gone.
"Melinda?" Eli said. No answer. "Yep, she's gone."
*Earlier that day*
Carmen walked into the Same As It Never Was Antiques shop. They bell at the door signaled her arrival.
"Hey, Melinda are you ok?" Delia asked.
"Sure I am old chick, sure I am." Carmen said.
"Old Chick?" Delia said. "I have a name that you should know; ok wow something is seriously wrong with you today. Look if it has something to do with the fight that you and Jim had its ok you can tell me about it."
"What! Me and my baby never ever have fights. You're just a crazy, old bat." Carmen replied.
"Baby? Crazy, Old Bat? That's it I'm going to go get Eli!" Delia said as she grabbed her coat.
"Eli James right that Professor that studies the supernatural Jim told me about him. How is he going to help?" Carmen asked.
"Melinda are you on drugs, Eli is a therapist who hears ghost. Now I need to get Jim too. You are completely of your rocker!" Delia said.
"Carmen let my body go!" Melinda said as she appeared.
"Melinda! Go away I'm working!" Carmen yelled.
"Melinda? What, ok going to go get Eli." Delia said just then Eli ran through the door out of breath.
"No Parking, Ha... had to run." He breathed.
"Oh thank goodness Eli something is wrong with Melinda Terribly wrong." Delia said.
"Yeah I know, Bad ghost named Carmen Nails went into Melinda's body and pushed her spirit out. So Melinda is a "ghost" and Carmen is Melinda."
"I need to sit down." Delia said.
"Give my body back. Please Carmen; it isn't fair you lived your life you can't take mine!" Melinda yelled.
"I want a baby, Melinda, you can have one, and I can't how is that for fair!" Carmen yelled.
"Your life was cut short I understand that, but please give me my body back. Please." Melinda said to Carmen.
"I feel weak." Carmen said and she slumped down to her knees.
"You energy is being used up trying to stay in my body, you are a powerful ghost you have taken over my body for a long time, now if you don't mind I would like to get out of this ghostly nightgown stage." Melinda said.
"I can't hold on much longer." Carmen said and she passed out. Her ghost went out of Melinda's body and sank into the ground. "I'll be back and I'll have a baby!" Carmen yelled out before fully submerging into the ground. Melinda spirit went back into her own body.
When Melinda woke up she was in the hospital and Jim was asleep next to her.
"Jim." Melinda said and grabbed his hand. He instantly woke up and kissed her.
"Hey Mel." Jim said with a smile as he kissed her again. "I knew it wasn't you when you didn't say I Love You Too." Melinda smiled and kissed him again. " Plus Eli explained the whole thing." Melinda laughed.
"How long was I out Jim?" Melinda asked.
"Two days. Your body went through, a lot it lost its spirit then housed an evil on for 12 hours." Jim replied.
"Wow, two days any news from the doctor?" Melinda said looking into Jims eyes.
"He said he had news but, I wanted to wait for you to wake up even if it was good or bad." Jim said looking into Melinda's eyes.
"I have a feeling it will be good." Melinda said and she kissed him. And he kissed her back. As if on cue the doctor walked in.
"Mr. and Mrs. Clancy I have some news. Don't worry I think it's good news but that depends on what you want."
"Told you." Melinda whispered to Jim. Jim kissed her on her forehead.
"Mrs. Clancy you are pregnant! Two months along hopefully that is good news." The doctor said with a smile on his face.
"That is great news, Thank you." Jim said and he smiled at Melinda.
"I'll leave you two alone then goodbye." The doctor said.
"Bye." Melinda said as she looked down at her flat stomach.
"A baby, finally!" says Jim. "but you told me last week that you didn't want any kids and for me to stop pressuring you, are you okay."
"Ok, I'm great, a baby, wow." Melinda said as she started to cry. "I want a little boy that looks exactly like you!"
"No, I want a little girl who looks exactly like you." Jim said as he wiped away her tears. He kissed her and Delia barged in.
"MELINDA, JIM I'M SO HAPPY FOR YOU!" Delia screamed she ran over to Melinda and gave her a hug then gave on to Jim." Having a child is the best feeling in the world well, minus the birth…" Delia said. "How far along are you?"
"Two months." Melinda replied.
"Two months!" Delia said. "I'm going to start crying."
"No, Delia don't if you do then I will and it will just be a big mess!" Melinda said with a laugh. Ned and Eli walked into the room next. Ned gave them both hugs.
"Jim, are we going to still be able to shoot hoops on Monday?" Ned asked.
"Of course, Bud." Jim said.
"Yes! See you next Monday Jim, same place, same time I am so going to beat you! Bye Melinda call me if you need any help." Ned said on his way out with Delia.
"Bye." The happy couple said.
"Congrats you two." Eli said. You could tell on his face that he didn't know to give them hugs or not.
"Oh Eli get over here and give me and Jim a hug!" Melinda said. Eli did as he was told and left.
The doctor came in 15 minutes later and told Melinda she could go home so Melinda got dressed while Jim signed her out. Then Jim carried Melinda all the way to their car. And the whole way to their house Jim kept his hand firmly on Melinda's stomach.
Jim then carried her up to their room and kissed her good night.
