Chapter #3: Now

The twins and Eilleen were very close. Well, that's what 33 years of being together causes. They were a golden trio. Eilleen was the quiet one and would usually scold the twins if they vandalized the house, even though the previous owners cleaned up the house amazingly. They finally stopped when the previous owners, two gays, died. They knew that they would get their asses beat by them if they tore up the house.

The house was empty now, and it was eerily quiet. Once again, Eilleen felt alone. Sure she had the twins, but they were boys. She wanted a girl to hang out with. Addy was alright, but she was still always playing with her sibling. She wanted a girl who loved the darkness, like herself. She knew that she wouldn't get that, though. Well, then again, some dreams can become wishes if they are really meaningful to you...

Eilleen was down in the basement, playing with Addy and Bow. She rolled the red ball across the floor to Bow, who rolled it to Addy. Eilleen got up while laughing softly, and went over to a dusty old chair with Eilleen's favorite book sitting atop it. It was called Ghost Girl by Tonya Hurley. Eilleen had manajed to get it off the bookshelf of the previous owners, and she loved it. The book was about a girl named Charlotte who feels invisible to people and her crush, Damen. She dies from a gummy bear and becomes a ghost. In a way, Eilleen feels connected to Charlotte. Eilleen feels invisible to Troy. She has a crush on him, and has ever since the 90s. Plus she's a ghost...

Eilleen picked up her book, and sat down on the chair. She was at the part where Charlotte tutors Damen somewhat when the book was yanked from her hands. "Hey!" Eilleen looked up and saw Troy standing there, holding her book. She let out a frustrated sigh. " What?!"

" God, calm down. I just grabbed your book... Are you on your time of the month or something?" "NO! Besides, ghosts don't even get those anymore..."

Troy shrugged." ANYWAYS, I have something to tell you." " Well, what is it?" " There are some people her who are thinking of buying the house." Eilleen's eyes went wide and she jumped up. She ran past Addy and up the stairs. She quietly stepped beside the kitchen doorway, and saw 3 people.

The man had Black hair and blue eyes, with slight stubble on his chin. There was a woman with orange-red hair, who was very lovely. But then Eilleen saw her. The teenage girl. She had light brown hair and big blue eyes. She looked around her age. Maybe she could fill the place in Eilleen's heart for a girl who was a friend to her. Eilleen hoped so...

Eilleen was friends with two little girls named Barbara and Angela, but they were more sisterly than a friend. They were all burnt- looking, But Eilleen being Eilleen, she only judged their personality. And their personalities were beautiful. Eilleen always had tea parties with them and loved them, but she needed someone her age.

She saw the girl walk towards the basement door, and Eilleen hid herself from view. The girl opened the door and looked down. Her parents seemed to be thinking about buying the house, but the girl anwsered, " We'll take it."

The parents looked at their daughter in a suprised way. She must've been quiet a lot or something like that...

On the inside, Eilleen was screaming with joy. She could finally have a best friend who was a girl!
