1. Meet Jade


        My grandmother once told me that ghosts are all around you at all times. Ghosts are people who have died but now linger the earth and haunt places and occasionally their families. She would also say that I have the gift to speak with the dead. Scary huh.. That's what I thought too at first, but ever since I was six I've been able to see them. Before my grandmother died she always told me that I would see her again. I was five when she passed away. It wasn't but a year later when I actually saw her again, and I see her almost every day. I do not fear her but there are spirits that I do fear, and that scares me. I'm sorry where are my manners my name is Olivia Caster.

                          If you don't already know I'm a Medium. Have been since I was little but I'm twenty seven now. I could tell you some of the things that I've seen that would scare the crap out of you, but I think I'll start with my very first case as a medium. It was about a little girl who died of a drowning by an abusive step father when she was ten. I was in my bedroom half asleep and it was about three am when the room went ice cold, that's when I knew that I wasn't alone anymore. I was afraid to open my eyes at first because I didn't know if it was an good or bad entity. But when I heard her speak I knew that I wasn't afraid anymore. I opened my eyes and saw a little girl, and she looked like she was drenched from her head to her feet. 

        "Will you help me?" At first I didn't know what to say. But then she asked again. "Will you help me please?" I admit I was afraid but I collected myself and answered her. "What can I help you with? Can you tell me your name?" About two minutes went by and then she answered. "My name is Jade Nevaeh Andrews. My mom... She is so sad, why?" She sounded so confused like she doesn't even know she's dead. "Jade..." I didn't know how to let her know that's she's dead. "What do you last remember? Think hard okay." She thought for a few minutes and then she answered. "I last remember being in the family pool in our back yard, and I remember my step dad Richard being there but my mom was in the house making us lunch. But then my step dad came over to me, and then everything went blurry." She started to cry and that's when I knew that she just realized that she had died.

                            She had her face down in her hands and as she slowly looked up at me she slowly started to fad away.  At that point I didn't know what to think. "Jade please wait I can help you." "What am I? The last thing that I remember was that my step dad came in the pool and towards me but after that..... That's all that I can remember." She asked still sobbing away.

        "What am I?" if I tell her the truth will it solve her problem, and if so what's next? I thought about it for a second and decided that I would tell her. I took a deep breath and said "Jade I hate to tell you this but your a ghost and that's why I can see you. You died, hun. And that's also why your mom has been crying." she just looked at me and laughed. "Why are you laughing? This isn't funny Jade. I'm telling you the truth." "If I'm a ghost then how can you see me? And if you can see me then why can't my mom see me?" I knew that was coming. "Because I'm a Medium! I can see the dead and that's why I can see you. I can still help you, but I need to know if you can remember anything else about what happened that day?" 

          "Well?" I asked. "Okay but I don't know if I can remember everything. Is that okay?" "No that's fine. As long as you can remember some of it that would be fine." She shook her head and took a deep breathe and then she paused. I saw that she was going through every memory that she had. "Okay I'm ready. It was a hot day. My older sister Diana and I decided to get in the pool and swim for a little bit while my mom was making us something to eat for lunch. That's when I noticed that my step dad was walking to the pool." She paused for a minute.

        "Are you alright. Do we need to stop for awhile?" She looked over at me and started to continue. "Diana was laying on a floaty thing tanning so she didn't see him get in. He just stayed to the one side of the pool for a few minutes. I was swimming and noticed that Diana was getting out of the pool. She didn't like our step dad very much. And that's when I saw my step dad was coming towards me. I don't know why he was coming towards me but it didn't matter. All that mattered was that he was acting weird but I didn't know what it was." She collapsed on the floor.

        "He grabbed me by my neck and started to hold me down under the water. I couldn't breathe but I did try and fight back. As I kicked him in his private parts, I tried to swim to get out of the water and I screamed for my mom. But when I looked over at the kitchen window I saw her cooking away at the stove. She didn't even hear me...." She started to cry. She stood up and sat next to me. "Do you know what he did next? He grabbed me by the back of my head and he...

        "He what Jade?" She didn't say a word, but she did look scared. All of a sudden another ghost appeared out of nowhere. He looked mad and when he grabbed Jade, she started screaming "Olivia help me please?!" and they started to fade. "WAIT!! DON'T TAKE HER!" I screamed. "Ahhhhhh--" Jade screamed and then there was silence.
