Finding My Ghost

"Come now, friend. It's right through here." She gestured to my dead girlfriends gravestone.

I stared at her. "You want us to walk through a slab of concrete?"

She nodded like it was the most normal thing in the world. "It is the only way, my friend. It is the only way to help her, to get her back to her eternal home. All of us who See--We all have the ability." She clasped my hands in hers and stared intently at me, like this was something that I should have learned when I was a third grader. "All we have to do is visualize an opening--see your beloved there waiting for you. The desire of needing to see her--to ensure her safety." She gazed at Scarlett's headstone and squinted. "I am not powerful enough to do it alone, nor are you. But together... We can create a portal."

"A portal to what?" I asked her even though I already knew the answer.

She looked at me and smiled, a hint of mischief in her eyes. "The portal to the Afterworld."

6. Chapter 1

"Rise and shine!"

I groaned, opening my eyes to find Kaylee yanking my curtains open. "School starts today, aren't you excited? I'll be at the same school as you now!"

"School's hell. Let me go back to sleep." I grumbled. "How'd you even get into my house?"

"Your mom let me in on her way out the door." She put her hands on her hips. "Now get up!" She demanded. "You can't be late for your first day of senior year, and I can't be late for my first day of high school!" She excitedly exclaimed.

I rolled my eyes. "Fine," 

She grinned in triumph and walked out of my room. I grudgingly got up out of my bed, grabbed a towel from the hall closet and started a shower.

I spent the next twenty minutes trying to figure out ways not to lose my shit as I started my first day back to school.

Stay away from Tanya. I reminded myself. I do not need to get back into that again.

Stick with the twins. I know they're beyond excited to be released into the high school, but I have to keep an eye on them. They don't need to be wrapped up in another Mayella case.

Don't let the twins get wrapped up in gossip. That ties back to Tanya as well. She's loves spreading gossip.

Listen for Scarlett. I smile to myself. Scarlett. She passed on to the other side a few months ago after I helped find the person responsible for her death. After being pushed out a window and falling to her death, together we unraveled the fact that it was her former best friend, Mayella.

I stepped out of the shower and wrapped myself in a towel. Clearing the fog off of a small part of the mirror, I glanced at the pink jagged scar on my right shoulder. Also from the Mayella case. When I threatened to turn her in for murder, she sliced my neck open and stabbed me in the shoulder.

She was psycho.

Hey there, senior. How's it going?

-Scar.

I grinned. "Hey Scarlett," I don't know how she does it, but she leaves me notes. On my papers I keep in my desk. Sticky-notes. Foggy windows. Foggy Mirrors. Everywhere.

Excited for your first day?

"You're funny." I roll my eyes. "School is still as terrible as ever, even if it's a new year."

Oh, boohoo. Suck it up.

"Oh, how I've missed your attitude!" I laughed. "Can you leave for a second so I can get dressed?"
I hated when she left, but seriously, it would be awkward to get dressed when I know she's watching.

When no writing appeared on the fogged up mirror, I assumed she did as I asked and left. I pulled on some faded blue jeans and a plaid green and grey button-up shirt.

I always did like that shirt on you.

"Hey!" I exclaimed. "I thought you left, how long have you been there?"

Relax, I just got here. It's cute when you get all flustered, though. You're cheeks get really red. She then drew a smiley face next to her message.

"They do not!" I protested. 

Yes they do! Just imagine me laughing, Drew. 

I rolled my eyes. "Whatever."

"Drew!" Kaylee pounded on my bathroom door. "What did I say I didn't want to be late for? Hurry up and stop talking to your girlfriend!"

Tell my sisters I said hello, and I love and miss them. Have a great day today, Drew. Also, don't be a smartass to your teachers no matter how badly they piss you off. It gets you nowhere but the dean's office. Especially on your first day back. I would know.

Love, 

Scarlett.

God, I miss her so much. "I will. I'll talk to you later,"

I brushed my teeth and rushed out the door and met up with the twins. They were dressed identically as always. Both wearing a floral skirt that reached just above their knees, Haylee wearing a short sleeved pink blouse and Kaylee wearing a short sleeved red blouse, tied together with a brown belt around their waists.

"Everybody ready for their first day?" I asked them on our walk to the school.

"Absolutely!" Haylee beamed.

And we soon walked through the front doors to hell.

Excuse me. 

High school.
