12. Chapter 9

The instant thought of Maurelle's work occurring made me think that she could've been working on my mind when I had the dream last night. Something was going on if Maurelle tried to hypnotize an innocent old woman to say something she needed me to hear. But yet again, she is going to kill me and I'm pretty innocent.


Soon the bus arrived. Minutes flew by, as I struggled to stay completely still, whilst the bus drove, quickly. I decided not to cling to the yellow pole, knowing that it was covered in germs. However, the thought of grey swirls kept going popping into my mind, no matter how hard I tried to forget. It made me think that Maurelle was always by my side and midnight was just when she became that typical ghost-invisible, swift, hidden.

Since Spooks are real-even if you would never read about those kind of mystical creatures in a ​Grimms's fairy tale book-ghosts, spirits, pixies, dark magic and maybe even wizards and witches could also be existent. Not the childish, make-believe sort that you would find in The Wizard Of Oz or ​Shrek's Far Far Away. It could sound too unreal with no logical science involved but the world has its mysteries like every human, like every Spook.

Arriving at school almost made me relieved and free from Maurelle. Obviously, I had forgotten about her constant appearances in different locations. Yesterday, she entered my day in registration. What about today?

Oblivious of where I was, I stormed into our form room, with only a quick glace at Miss Galina, expressionless, and then at Talissa, sadly. She returned the gaze by looking at me, confused but tired. Tired of having to figure me out every morning to see what was wrong. I wouldn't blame her and I wouldn't be surprised if she totally ignored and blanked me for the whole day. I didn't want to depart my life, leaving the bond between me and Talissa cold and fustrating. All of a sudden, I remembered she had something to tell me. Maybe if I asked her what was going on, she wouldn't think I was so self involved. I sat down, gently, trying to catch Talissa's attention. Twisting her head, she slightly smiled at me. Tucking a hair strand behind my ear, I began to speak, "Talissa, what did you want to tell me?"

"Oh yeah, but are you okay?" She answered, turning her whole body towards me.

"I'm fine."

"Okay. I'll tell you later, here isn't a good pl-Amelie! Are you sure you're okay?" She watched me, awkwardly. It was seconds after, that I realized I looked as scared as a cat seeing a car driving in their direction. It was a certain sign. The grey spot kept broadening on the wall ahead.

As the dark patch developed, insanity occurs in my head, driving me to do crazy things. Stamping my feet, I covered my ears and shut my eyes, tightly. Now Maurelle wouldn't be in my life...for now. I hadn't pushed my hands to my ears hard enough as I heard to flutter of moths and scurry of caterpillars. Opening my eyes, Miss Galina stared at me, cautiously, as Talissa was by my side, as scared as ever.

"Sorry. I-" before I finished, I looked up to where Miss Galina stood. She nodded and she knew what I wanted to ask. I hurried out of the room, fleeing until I got outside. I exhaled large breathes of air and finally, for weeks, cried. Talissa was by my side, when I wiped my tears away. So was someone else. Maurelle.
