Which one?

Grace is a teenage psychic. She goes to a dull high school in England and one of her only friends is a ghost that goes by the name Erik. But when One Direction comes to attend her school things change big time.

3. Life goes on

*ONE YEAR LATER*

Stupid homework. WHY DO YOU TAKE FOREVER?! I have been sitting at my desk for hours working on my frakin calculus homework. I then hear a moan; Erik.

"Erik, get out of the corner." I sighed. He looked at me with his deep amber eyes and the moaned again. 

"I'm in a mood Grace. Leave me be." Erik said in a disheartened tone.

"You are always in a mood Erik! Stop the whole 'woe is me' crap!" I yell. Erik then started to cry silently and hum to himself. 

"Erik, I'm sorry. Come  here." I apologized holding my arms outstretched.  He glided/walked over to where I was sitting and hugged me. (Unlike some people I can also feel the dead, as if they are alive.) 

"Why are you in a mood Erik?" I asked as he ceased his sniveling.  I've never seen him so vulnerable!

"She was shot in front of my eyes, and died in my arms. I just sat there and did nothing!" He said as he burst into pained tears. 

"Wait WHAT? Someone was shot in front of you? Who was it?" I exclaimed.

"Christine, Angel! She had just confessed her love for me and her friend, Meg, became jealous. She kidnaped our child, Gustave, and brought a gun. She threatened to shoot herself so I tried to coax her into giving me the gun but I had the poorest choice of words and she started to struggle. Meg fired the gun and I dodged to the side, avoiding the bullet... Christine wasn't as lucky as I. It hit her square in the abdomen and she crumpled to the floor, blood pooling around her. She told me to remember the love we shared and to take care of Gustave, even though the boy resented me at first. I lived a happy life with Gustave, who no longer hated me. Then I was taken by a strange fever at the age of 35, and was then blessed by god with the responsibility of taking care of you." He explained. By the end of his life story he had ceased his sobbing and looked somewhat embarrassed. 

"Oh Erik, if I had only known earlier! I am truly very sorry for your loss." I said hugging him harder. He pulled away and looked into my eyes with realization. 

"I have never heard you sing Angel. Would you do me the honor of singing a song?" He asked bashfully. I blush.

"If it will get you out of your mood..." I said. He sat crisscrossing his legs looking like a tiny preschooler about to be read a story. I opened my mouth and began to sing.

 

When you try your best but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

High up above or down below
when you're too in love to let it go
but If you never try you'll never know
Just what your worth

Lights will guide you home
and ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face and I

Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face and I

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
I will try to fix you

 

ERIK'S POV:

When she finished the song I probably looked like a buffoon. She sounds strikingly similar to Christine! NO! Stop with Christine, she's gone. You have to look after Grace now! Don't get caught in the past.

"Thank you very much Grace... That was lovely." 

"A-Any time, Erik" She leans forward kisses me on the cheek and then walks out of the room. I sat ther for 20 minutes dumbfounded with my mouth wide open.

"What the hell just happened?!"
