The Paranormal Problem

4 best friends are having the time of their life in 5th grade, their last year in elementary school, the big fish in a little pond. All of a sudden, odd things start happening. This is not the first time paranormal occurrences have been reported in Silver Valley Elementary School, and they are concerned. Are they safe? Is anybody safe? Will they be able to solve the paranormal problem?


1. Prologue


I screamed at the top of my lungs. "Kari!" I yelled as loud as I could. "Kari..." I shut myself in a stall, hyperventilating. The black started to seep through the crack in the door. I knew there was no way Kari could hear me, but I had tried anyway. This was how I was going to die, shut in a bathroom stall with the evil black mass choking me. That's when I heard the door slam open. The black disappeared immediately.

"Is everything okay in here?" says the voice of a teacher, Mrs. Bendele. Tears start streaming down my face silently. I was safe.

"Yes, I'm fine," I manage to choke out through my tears. I hear Mrs. Bendele's footsteps come to a halt outside the stall I'm in.

"Honey? What's wrong?" she says as I unlock the door and she gets a glimpse of my tear-stained cheeks. "I heard yelling."

"Ummmm..." I stammer, unsure of what to say, knowing she'll never believe the real story. I tell her it anyway. "Mrs. Bendele, I saw a ghost, and it tried to kill me." Her face took on an expression that clearly said, stupid third graders.

"You don't have to lie you know, I won't get mad," she says soothingly. I sigh. Teachers just don't get it.

"I'm not lying," I say matter of factly. She gives me a reproachful look.

"Alright then, I'll take you to Mrs. Skalnik, and you can tell her your story." I gulp. Mrs. Skalnik, our principal, is very strict and, honestly, she hates me. It has something to do with my older brother, I think, he's always been a troublemaker.

We reach Mrs. Skalnik's office, and Mrs. Bendele says, "Go on in. I'm sorry, hon, but I have to report something like this. Good luck." I liked Mrs. Bendele. She was usually nice to me, and didn't judge me because of my brother.

I take a deep breath, and walk into the office.
