7. Chapter 6


The next day Emma and Billy went downstairs for breakfast like normal, then their mum and dad started to get ready to go shopping, before they left, they turned to their three children.

“Right, be good, we’re going to be getting Sophie’s birthday presents, so we won’t be back before lunch, I’ve left you something in the fridge for lunch, see you later, love you all.” Their mum spoke, before walking to the door, with their dad, and leaving the house. When they were gone, Sophie skipped in to the lounge.

“Now what are we going to do?” whispered Billy, slightly anxious.

“Don’t worry; mum just said they’ll be gone for hours. So we will stay with Sophie for a bit, then when she’s happy, we’ll sneak off to the attic.” Emma whispered, as she walked off to the lounge.

Billy stared after her for a while, before following her to the lounge, even though Emma seemed to be relaxed, and he was happy about the idea of ghosts to begin with, he was now starting to feel scared by it all.

Billy sat in the overstuffed armchair, nervously twitching as the time ticked by, while Emma sat on the floor playing with Sophie and her dolls, after an hour Emma stood up and looked down at Sophie “Billy and I have to go, and prepare ourselves for our first day of school, are you going to be alright for a little while?”

Sophie nodded.

“Would you like a DVD on?” Emma asked.

“Yes please,” replied Sophie, and she skipped off merrily to choose one. While Sophie was looking at the DVD’s, Emma turned to Billy. “Go and get the board out of my room, and set it up, while I wait for Sophie, I’ll be up in a minute.”

Billy nodded and left the room.

A few minutes later, Emma walked through the attic door with a glass, the Ouija board was set up, on a cardboard box, and Billy was sitting opposite looking nervous.

“What’s the glass for?” Billy asked.

“We put our index finger on the glass, and ask questions, if there is a spirit in here the glass will move without us doing anything. So NO pushing it.” said Emma putting her finger on the glass, Billy did the same, but before they could ask a question the door burst open, and in stepped Sophie, “I’m hungry,” she complained, “And…” Sophie stopped mid-sentence and looked around the attic, “What are you doing?” she asked.
