Kaitlin is un-packing and Dani is folding the clothes and putting them away.
Kaitlin: He is just so hot and really kind, and he actually took me out for dinner and then we had cakes, and we both like the same thing.
Dani: Wow, you really do like him?
Kaitlin: Well he is like no one I have ever met before. Anyways, Dani can I tell you something that has been bugging me all day.
Dani: As long as it’s not about Rich, what’s up? (They both sit down.)
Kaitlin: Well you know how we were trying to find Slender and get him.
Dani: Wait, who’s Slender?
Kaitlin: Remember, do you remember anything about the fire?
Dani: Not really, all I remember is about Gabe leaving.
Kaitlin: Then you might not understand.
Dani: You can ask Jimmy, but now I am worried. How can you remember all of this and I can’t. What is going on?
Kaitlin: I was going to tell you something else as well.
Dani: Go one.
Kaitlin: You probably don’t know this but, isn’t your brother not alive.
Dani: What do you mean?
Kaitlin: Well you’re other best friend said that he found Max dead. Which brings me to another point, shouldn’t you try and find Ruby. I know you aren’t her friend, but couldn’t she do harm to the castle.
Dani: I can’t believe this; I can’t remember any of it. Max is dead. I know Ruby started the fire. We need to call everyone. (She shouts.) House meeting.
Everyone is in kitchen.
Dani: I can’t remember anything.
Dani: I can’t remember anything, what happened that night, what were we doing. Who is Slender?
Jimmy: This is serious, you don’t remember Slender.
Esme: I know what the problem is. When a ghost leaves, the person that touches his ashes don’t remember anything about that day, only a few moments.
Kaitlin: Okay know we know your problem, listen to mine. We have to do a check around the castle, everywhere. We need to check for Slender and Dani’s brother.
Leo: Let’s check for the rooms in the castle first and then the outer areas.
Dani: Okay, let’s go people.
Leo: Wait Dani, (Everyone leaves except Dani, Esme and Leo.) Could I have the bedroom next to mine?
Dani: Yeah sure.
Esme: Wait, you can’t have that one.
Esme: That is Gabe’s room. You’ll have to go and find another room.
Leo: Why can’t you find another room for Gabe? Anyways he isn’t even here.
Esme: Yes he is and he would love a room in the castle.
Leo: He was a stupid brother.
Esme: Take that back.
Leo: Make me!
Dani: All right, that’s enough. Stop being rude to each other.
Leo: I would have never left my sister, but Gabe was a stupid person anyway. Who says they like someone and then go for their best friend?
Esme: Hate you! (She disappears.)
Dani: Look what you have done! (She leaves.)
Esme goes to her room, and gets her laptop. Dani runs in.
Dani: Esme, forget what Leo said. I still love your brother. He will never be forgotten. I promise.
Esme: That’s why you will let me go.
Dani: Go where, where are you going?
Esme: I want to be free, with my brother.
Dani: You’re going to do the same thing Gabe did. You can’t go, we will all be lost without you and your Leo’s best friend, whether he said that or not. Plus I don’t want to lose my memory again.
Esme: Just don’t touch my ashes.
Dani: Well who’s going to clear it then? Don’t go.
Esme: Bye Dani and I’ll suggest you don’t follow me. (She disappears.)
Dani: No wait. Great, I just got this new castle and 2 other people have left. (She walks out the room and enters Leo’s room.)
Leo: Oh, don’t look at me.
Leo: You probably hate me, since I did say all those horrible things about Gabe in front of Esme.
Dani: Don’t feel bad. I can see how upset you are, so I won’t shout at you. You did say some mean things though. Anyways Esme is gone. She left. She left to be with her brother.
Leo: What? What have I done? (He runs out the room.)
Dani: Great work Dani, great work!
Dani, Jimmy and Kaitlin go back to the kitchen.
Dani: So have you found anything in the house.
Kaitlin: No, you?
Dani: No. Well I have been really busy.
Jimmy: Wait where are Leo and Esme?
Dani: I have no idea where Leo is, and Esme is gone. She left to go be with her brother.
Kaitlin: So wait she is gone, like gone forever.
Jimmy: I guess it leaves with us 4.
Kaitlin: I have to find Leo.
Dani: I have already told him. He wasn’t happy, because he did say something really mean about Gabe.
Kaitlin: Oh, no! He’s run away.
Dani: What makes you say that?
Kaitlin: It’s obvious. He is always like this. What am I going to do?
Jimmy: Call your mum and dad and we three will sit here to see if he comes back.
Kaitlin: Okay, I’ll be back, two ticks. (She leaves.)
Dani: This is a disaster. It’s only us three left. We can’t have any adventures with us three.
Jimmy: This is going to be hard; maybe we can just sit and relax. Watch T.V, we haven’t done that in a while.
Dani: And why is that?
Jimmy: Because of all the amazing adventures.
Dani: It hasn’t been the first day and all of us are leaving.
Kaitlin: (She enters.) Don’t worry. Leo has gone to the boarding school my mum and dad really wanted him to go to. So everything’s fine.
All: (There is a long pause.) I’m bored.
