My weird and painful ghost story
by Caroline

It was a dark and stormy night, I was home by myself. I could hear thunder and rain, and see lightning out the window. I was watching "iCarly: I Start A Fan War" when all of a sudden, the electricity went out!

I breathed in and out deeply. I heard something behind me. I gasped. I turned around and saw a ghost that looked just like....ME. I gasped again.

"Wh-who are you?" I stammered.

"I am Carolyn. I am a clone of you. But, I have brown-blonde hair and blue-brown eyes." the ghost said.

"H-how did you die? What do you want from me?" I asked. "I died while balancing on the fence in the backyard. Someone shot me in the head. I screamed, then fell off of the fence, then died. I need you to find my locket my mother gave to me before she died. It's on the other side of the fence. It is gold and heart-shaped."

Carolyn said. "Right now?" I asked.

"Yes." Carolyn said. "The storm has passed." She said.

"Okay. Let's go." I said. We then went outside. I climbed the fence.

"Carolyn! I see it! It's in the grass!" I exclaimed with joy. I then lost my balance and fell to the ground, landing on my right ankle. I cried out in pain.

"Carolyn! Help!" I screamed out to her.

"I am coming!" Carolyn cried. "Are you okay? Is the LOCKET okay?"

Carolyn said. "The locket is okay, but I'M not. I fell and twisted my right ankle pretty bad." I said.

"Oh dear!" Carolyn then lifted me and carried me back into the house.

"Here's the locket, Carolyn." I handed her the locket. "Thank you, Caroline! I want to give this bracelet to you to remember me." Carolyn said. She slipped a pink and gold bracelet onto my wrist.

"Thanks, Carolyn." I said.

"No problem, Caroline. There's a button on the bracelet if you need me, okay? Goodbye, my friend...and sister."

We waved goodbye. I fell asleep. I woke up to find an ace bandage and ice pack on my ankle. The bracelet was still on my wrist. I found a note on my stomach. It read, "My dear friend Caroline, I just wanted to thank you once again and I want to invite you for tea to thank you even more. Tomorrow at 6:31 p.m., all right? Thank you so much for finding my locket. From, Carolyn."

Carolyn appeared again. I gasped with horror and joy. "Please don't scare me like that again! I almost had a heart attack!" I said, taking two breaths.

"I'm sorry, Caroline. I didn't mean to." Carolyn said.

"It's okay." I said as I looked down.

When I looked up, Carolyn disappeared. I smiled with happiness, for I knew I found another friend, a clear-as-light, see-through friend. But, I didn't care, I loved her anyway. I also knew I had my first ghostly experience.

The End!
