The ghost

I never told my dad about Alex, he was my secret. Dad wouldn't approve of Alex because he has no mummy and daddy. One time I told him that I had no mummy. He just looked a bit sad. He always looks like that, a bit sad... He's my special friend though, and even though he leaves me, I know he'll always come back.

5. Saying good bye

 

Friday, 6:00

I didn't think the sea gulls would come today, but they did. I walked out of my bed room and into the kitchen tiredly, not quite remembering yesterday. And for the first time ever, my dad was home. A massive smile appeared on my face "You kept your promise!" I ran and hugged him joyfully "Always and forever," He hugged me tight and for the whole of breakfast I forgot about Alex. Instead I told my dad about the dolphin I saw when I was seven and a half. I don't know why, but I'd never told him before, and it seemed important. My dad oohed and ahhed at all the right moments, smiling like a crazy person. I didn't mind because, for once, he was happy.

After wards, I looked at the clock hanging from the wall, 6, 40! "Oh, No!" I cried out, "I need to go somewhere!" My dad looked at me confused, but said sadly, "I also, must go to work, You can come by any time you want, remember that... and don't go climbing!" He added hastily, grabbing his work bag. He hugged me tight, and I held him close, before I broke from his embrace and dashed out the door. The stone's felt like soft grass on my feet, as I sprinted to our special place. What if he's not there? what if he never comes back, I slowed as I neared the turning to our not-so-secret place, I didn't want too see... "Jo?"

I ran round and hugged him tight. "I'm so sorry, I should have listened! I'm so sorry! Please don't leave" I gushed, silly tears sliding down my face. Why would he leave? I scolded my stupidity... but some how, I knew. Usually I never cry, even when I bruise my knees. "I have too," He sounded quieter than normal, and for the second time ever I said "Why?"My voice sounded desperate... and I was! He was a part of me! He looked away... "Because your not lonely any more, I was here because you needed me, now you don't..."

He wasn't crying, he was worse... he was dying. "Don't die! I need you!" I shouted. He smiled at me, "I'm already dead, I always was, But now, I'm free, Good bye little sister," His body was becoming more and more blurry and I was scared to touch him. "You have our dad, and I will always be there," He stepped towards the ocean.

"I love you" I said. he was my brother I never knew I had, why didn't he tell me? But I realised it didn't matter, because he was also my best friend. "I know" He whispered. I was glad I'd never asked him before, but now, I was ready for the truth. I was left with the singular thought that my best friend... and brother, was a ghost.

For the second time in my life, the sun came out fully. His smile was huge, radiating love and joy. The sea no longer looked scary, it looked warm and inviting. "I'll come with you," I decided quickly. I made a list of things I needed, in my head: tooth brush, pyjamas, dad. "No, its not your turn, but when it is... I'll be waiting," he paused to look at me, "As will your mum," Not only was he fading but he was also flying, faster and faster, upwards. I gave up trying to convince him; this was the last time I would see him for ages, "I'll miss you!!!" I shouted out. I danced on the stones on my way back, knowing my mum  and Alex were waiting for me. Forever and always.
