“MEGHAN!”

I sat up so fast that I banged my head on the ceiling. I had been having a nice dream about sitting on a cloud before the voice of my Mum woke me up. I glanced over at the clock. 7:13 Am.

“Strange,” I thought. “My Mum never wakes me up this early on a Sunday.” I hauled myself out of my cosy bed and looked at the ghost in my room. She was a young ghost (well, as young as a ghost can be as she died at 5) and she was clearly laughing at my clumsiness. She pointed at my door and smiled. Then something twigged in my mind.

“Mum watches the news every morning.”

“MEGHAN!”

I opened the door and ran down the stairs as fast as I could.

 

My Mum was staring at the screen with wide eyes and she didn’t seem to notice my loud stomps down the stairs. Weird. Normally she’d hear me walking in the next room. I took another step towards her and she turned her head in my direction. It was covered in panic and tears. I looked at the television screen and gasped.

 

’13 year old Shannon Layton was murdered at her house last night in Liverpool. Her family were unharmed physically but now are emotionally. Shannon was found in her bedroom with a knife stuck into her neck. No information about who the murderer is has been found yet but if you know anything please contact this number.’

 

My heart stopped for what seemed like eternity, but was only for a second.

 

Shannon Layton was in my year at school.
