The Watcher

Every day, hundreds of students pass him, and none of them ever see him. They are too busy taking care of their own lives. They are either trying to make it to their next class, having to go see a friend, or simply in a hurry to get home for the day. But they never notice him.

He listens, he observes, and he knows more than the students themselves know because of this.

He knows about the young redheaded girl who is constantly trying to improve her grades, but is causing problems with her best friend since she is always too busy studying.

He knows about the student who likes to hunt, and that the student finds it harder to make time for class than he does for hunting.

To them, he's just a kid who sits on the bench everyday waiting for his next class to start. Nothing more, nothing less. But to himself, he's a ghost. He could haunt anyone and everyone there if he wished. But he chooses not to do so. Instead he continues doing what he loves, watching
