Just recently, actually since Saturday, I've started seeing ghosts again. I 'kinda' just learned that Emma and Lilly (my two best friends) can see ghosts too.
But, here's the thing! I don't 'see' ghosts, I mean like how you would see a real person, I imagine them, like a flash in my head. I can always tell when they go to another place, or where they are. Emma and Lilly can see, and talk to them. Which, that kind of gets me... Hopeless. I really want to see them and talk to them, I've always wanted to.
I have quite a few stories, but I think I'll stay with the one that happened today.
In my school's locker room, there was this rumor that a girl hung herself, and haunts the shower room. Everybody passed it as a lie. But No, it's really true. Emma has talked to her before, and her name is Emerald.
So, today, I told my teacher I was going to the library, but I actually went to the locker. Well, you see... I saw this ghost, her name is Marrissa, and she was by the water fountain. I just feel like I had to see her, so I went looking for her.
In the Locker room, I looked around, (Well, I only looked in the mirror, fixing my hair...), and I heard water dripping. While I was walking to see what it was, I saw that it was the shower. Even though I felt Marrissa in the lunchroom, I called out, "Marrissa...? Marrissa?" (As I said before, I don't see ghosts, I imagine them.) And in my head, I saw a girl, with kind of long black hair on the floor, looking at me. This didn't scare me, really. But I left, kind of worried.
At 7th period, I have gym with Emma and Kristen (Kristen is Emma's friend, who can see ghosts too.) I went into the Locker room, and my locker was wide open, and my lock beside it.
I mean, nobody knows my lock combo., and Emma said it must have been Emerald.
WHICH! It was. I told Emma to go talk to her, and tell her that I'm sorry for thinking she was Marrissa. Well, Emma came back, and said that she was pissed at me. I went with Emma to talk to her, and this was our conversation: (Lol, I don't know how else to put it...)
Emma: Emerald, did you open Ashley's locker?
Emerald: Yeah, I did. So what if I did? (I can't see nor hear her, Emma just repeated her.)
Emma: Well... Why?
Emerald: Because she's a jerk and called me Marrissa.
(other words I forgot were said)
Emma: Is Marrissa real?
Emerald: Yeah, she's the one who helped me kill myself in the first place. (Or, something like that.)
Then the bell rang, and I'm pretty sure that other words were spoken, but I forget easily.
But, I want to know why I can't see ghosts, and why I can't talk to them. Is there anything I can do to improve my power?
