Chapter 1 : The Beginning

It was a beautiful night at Scare School and everyone was sleeping peacefully in there beds.

All except for one, Thatch who was sitting on the school roof for he cannot sleep and also had his precious vampire rubber duck with him and was talking to it.

'' Aw Duck why is it that stupid, over friendly, lousy excuse for a monster of a ghost always gets the like and respect from the others here at Scare School, WHY?. ''

Thatch said to his rubber duck, then he sighed and looked up at sky then back down to his duck.

'' I'm the meanest guy here at school, I have a my own gang and I'm great at making pranks for all the losers here. THEY should like and respect me but they don't.''

Thatch said angrily, but then he sighed again and sadly said

'' Even his family love him, while my parents never show much love or appreciation towards me. Only strict pressure into being the meanest, scariest monster in Scare School. But no matter what I do or how hard I try I always fail at everything in the end like my school work, scaring fleshies and trying to beat Casper at something. ''

He then looks up to the sky with tears in his eyes.

'' If only there was someone, just someone who can understand me or even truly like me... ''

Thatch then rubs his eyes to get rid of the tears and sighs again, holding his duck close he continues to look at the night sky and must admit that the stars were beautiful. He smiles a little then looked down at his duck again.

'' I gotta admit, the stars sure look pretty tonight don't ya think duck? ''

Thatch made the duck quack in response and giggled a bit, then looked up again and was surprised to see a shooting star. Thatch decided to make a wish on the star so he closes his eyes and said.

'' I wish there was someone who would truly like and respect me, or even a good change in my life for once...''

He then opened his eyes and looked again at the shooting star and was even more surprised that it was falling near Scare School and crashed in the deep part of the Forbidden Forest.

Thatch, who was very curious transformed into a bat and went into the Forbidden Forest to investigate.

Few minutes later, Thatch arrived at the spot where the star crashed and de-transformed to walk up to get a closer look at it. He saw a brightly, glowing round sphere and the strange thing was there on the front was a blue star.

'' Whoa... what in the world is this. ''

Thatch said quietly to himself then slowly he lifted his hand and placed it on top of the star. But quickly removed it cause the star suddenly glowed white and a hand came through it.

'' AHHHHHHHH ''

Thatch screamed, feeling scared he ran out of the forest not thinking of transforming nor noticing that he dropped his rubber duck.

Moments later, Thatch came running back to Scare School, entered the front doors and quickly shutting them loudly. Thatch leaning against the doors out of breath and slid to the floor his mind running over about what the heck was that thing. But was brought back to reality when he heard a voice.

'' Thatch, don't you have any idea what time it is?. ''

It was Alder one of the headmasters who said it. Both of them looking very annoyed.

'' Just what are you up to now this time then?.''

Dash the other one said then.

Thatch, desperately though failingly trying to regain his breath to explain what happened in the woods.

'' There...ha...falling...strange thing... ugh ''

But was quickly interrupted by Alder

'' Typical Thatch trying to make up an excuse for your shenanigans, as always. ''

Then Dash said

'' You will be writing out 750.00 times saying '' I must not fool around at night with my silly shenanigans tomorrow. For now straight to bed. ''

Thatch groaned but did as he was told, he went into the boys dorm and got into his coffin quietly without waking the others up. Poor Thatch was now feeling tired, frightened and confused.

'' Just what the heck was that back there, I've never seen anything like it...''

Then he suddenly realised that he doesn't have his rubber duck.

'' My duck, where is it I had with me awhile ago before I went to see what...''

Then it dawned on him that while he was running away he must have dropped it without noticing. Though really wanting to go back in the woods to look for it but not now for 2 reasons. Firstly, he was exhausted and secondly, he did not want to get told of again from the headmasters.

'' I'll look for it tomorrow but I hope it can survive for tonight with.. whatever it was back there. ''

So he closed his eyes and was soon fast asleep. Tomorrow he would go back into the woods to find his rubber duck. But what he didn't know was that his life was about to change.
