3. Chapter 2


The next day, Mrs Pearce made everyone get up early, “I want this house finished before my new job starts.” She told the kids as they moaned and whined about getting up so early in the morning. Billy and Emma where forced to start work in the kitchen, but Sophie was told to find something to do on her own. Sophie sighed, it was still raining and she had nothing to do, after a while Sophie had an idea, she rushed to the boxes that were full of the house hold objects that hadn’t been unpacked, she was busy rummaging in one of the boxes by the stairs, when she spotted a stack of mirrors behind another box; Sophie picked up one, and looked at her reflection, Sophie was a small 6½ year old child, with long blond hair and big blue eyes, but as she stared in the mirror she noticed a second figure, she turned around but there was no one there, she turned back to the mirror and the figure was still there, Sophie put the mirror down and ran to the kitchen.

“Dad…Mum…I just saw a ghost in one of the mirrors,” Sophie panted, as she skidded to a stop in front of them, her mum rolled her eyes, and went back to her painting, her dad bent down in front of Sophie, and put his hands on her shoulders. “Now Sophie…” he said in a soothing voice, “You know there’s no such thing as ghosts, don’t you?”

Sophie looked over her shoulder, and then back to her dad before nodding her head,

Just then her mum come over, and spoke to her dad, “Gary…would you go to the shop and get some more paint? We’re almost out.”

“Of course, Susan,” he said, and then he turned back to Sophie, “Would you like to come with me?” he asked.

Sophie nodded, and took her dad’s hand as they made their way to the front door, and into the rain.

25 minutes later, Mr Pearce and Sophie returned with pots and pots of paints in different colours,

“Can I go and play now dad?” asked Sophie, but just as her dad was about to answer, her mum came out, “Oh good your back, hurry up lunch is ready,” she said before rushing back inside.

Mr Pearce turned back to Sophie, “You can play, after lunch,” he said, and they both went inside.

After lunch, Sophie sat on the settee watching cartoons, while Emma and Billy helped their parents to continue painting the kitchen, Sophie knew nobody believed her, and as the day progressed she even doubted herself.
