Chapter 2

When he said this a million things went through my head at the same time and I could see all of them. Immediately he started the engine. We drove in silence for 10 min when I finally asked “Who are you?” He then soon replied with “I’m a ghost.”

This was weird because I had no idea what he was talking about. “I want to see my family,” I said to him with force. He then said “Your family believes you to be dead.” “No that can’t be! I was just in a hospital bed and I couldn’t move.” I state. “That was 1½ years ago. You have been dead for 1½.” he stated in response.

No, the place was completely empty.

He began to walk to what looked like an old elevator shaft. I couldn’t really see. When we finally got close to it I saw that it was. We got in and he pushed the button that said -13. This was odd to me because I had only seen positive numbers on elevators. Well I have been dead for one and a half years.

Slowly the doors open and I am looking at a grey room filled with equipment I have never even seen before. Then right in the middle of it all I see this red headed girl looking right at me.
