Finding My Killer

"SCARLETT MIRANDA ROSE." The tombstone read. "FELL OUT OF WINDOW. AGE 16. SHE WILL BE IN OUR HEARTS FOREVER."

I venomously laugh as I read my tombstone. My name is Scarlett Miranda Rose, and I know
one thing for sure.

I didn't fall out of that window.

I was pushed.

8. Chapter 8

I slowly open my eyes and see that I'm laying down on a grave in the cemetery.

For a second, I feel like I'm alive again. But to reassure myself, and not get my hopes up, I get up and walk through a tombstone.

My shoulders sag. Reliving my old childhood memories is pure torture, it makes me want to cry, but of course I can't, and that makes it worse.

I reach up and try to comb my fiery red hair back with my fingers--an old habit I had when I got upset--but I can't do that either, because, being a ghost, you can't change your appearance in anyway.

But that's not the thing I miss the most about being alive.

It's spending all my free time with my family and my best friend Mayella. I miss talking to my sisters. And I miss having family game night, where a whole big fiasco starts up when someone loses. I miss my photography class, taking pictures of everything that had meaning. I miss cherishing every moment I had with the people I love.

Wait... I stand straight up and glance around me. What happened?

I'm standing in front of my grave, and all of the events that had happened earlier are running through my mind.

"Scarlett?"

I whirl around and see Drew standing at the cemetery gates.

I rush over to him. "What happened to me?" I ask. "What was that light? Why did I end up in the cemetery--And why are you being so calm about this? I almost died... again!"

"Because, I've been seeing ghosts since I was four, and this isn't the first time I've seen this happen to a ghost." He explains. "That light you saw, is what happens when you get too far away from your death post. When you wander off farther than the length you can go--as a ghost-- you are sent back to where you died--"

"But I'm in the cemetery--"

"Or your favorite place to go," He said.

Oh, right. I always used to come to the cemetery when I needed to think. It didn't freak me out for some reason.

"How are you--with the whole 'light' thing?" Drew asks, seeing my expression.

"Pissed off." I scowl. "What day is today?"

"Friday," He says.

"I've been out for two days?!" I groan. "Ugh! The party is tonight and you have got to be prepared!"
