Chapter four – Boys, Boys and Boys
“Have you seen that old fashioned boy recently?” I asked Clara the next morning “no why? What’s on your mind T?” she replied “it’s weird. It’s like he’s vanished” I said wondering

*
That mid-morning I was reading my book and suddenly I jumped “hello again” said the old fashioned boy “you? Where were you?” I asked “I am sorry my lady” he said blowing. I looked at him strangely
Who was this old fashioned boy? Lots of questions popped in my head “why do I care though? I mean I don’t have feelings for him do I? I don’t even know him

*
The next day I was sat in my bedroom doing my story when I saw him again “right, I want answers master right now. Ok where do you go the other day? Why do you keep disappearing? What’s with the old fashioned clothes? What’s with the old fashioned language? Who are you? Why are you here? What’s your name? How old are you? You must like be 18 right?” I asked “umm well … I am not from this generation” he asked “what do you mean you’re not from this generation? Where are you from? What generation are you from?” I asked going around him and he kept on turning his head as I walked around him “well I’m ... well you see I am … from the umm 1970’s?” he said looking nervous “so does that mean you’re technically dead?” I asked scared “err well ... Yes but I … “he said, he couldn’t finish because I ran


A dead boy? Living here? My uncle didn’t mention anything about ghosts in this palace? I am scared. How can he be alive? When he’s meant to be dead? This place is freaky. But I have to tell my cousins

*
What are you talking about Tess? A dead boy? Here in this palace? Did dad mention anything about this? How can he be alive? You saw a dead boy?” asked Olivia after I told them “you’re not making any sense. Daddy would have mentioned it in the letter?” asked Clara “I know I’m not guys. But he told me he is from the 1970’s and he’s dead, no he didn’t? Do you think he would of? I know it’s so freaky, I don’t know how? Yes, clear of crystal, a dead boy is living here and I think I’m in love with …” I said but I couldn’t finish my sentence “with who?” asked Lynette “she’s was about to tell us” said Clara laughing

*
Oh I couldn’t tell my best friend that I was in love with her brother? That would be too weird for her. But I couldn’t lie either “Lynette, I think you should sit down” I said “why what’s going on? This sounds serious” said Lynette “Lynette, since I came here, you have been so nice to me and you are my best friend and I hope this doesn’t ruin our friendship” I said “aww T, don’t go all soppy on me please, just tell me” said Lynette. I looked at my cousins, they both nodded and told me to go for it “well I sort like someone” I said “I kind of got that honey, tell me, who?” asked Lynette “your brother” I said “which one? I hope it’s not Jason, he’s too young” said Lynette laughing “Mike” I said causally “OMG aww, that’s so cute, Mikes loves you Tess, he’s talking about you all day every day, he hasn’t ask you because he’s chicken” said Susan “aww, this is so cute, so if you get married, we would be sisters but who’s the other guy?” asked Lynette smiling

*
That’s so weird, I thought she would be cross with me or something I’m so glad Mikes likes me too

“The other guy is Robert” I said “wow, a love triangle, you’re so lucky” said Lynette “where is he?” replied Lynette “he’s dead” I said causally “oh right oh Tess” said Lynette giving me a hug “but he is alive. He’s from 1970” I said quickly “that doesn’t make any sense” said Lynette “we were just saying that” said Olivia and Clara walking towards us “I know it doesn’t make any sense I know that guys but I’m telling you there is a dead guy living here” I said “well we’re got to find him. What’s his number Tess, text him?” asked Olivia “liv, he’s from 1970” I said laughing “so?” said Olivia “he won’t have a phone” I replied “oh. Oh I knew that” said Olivia
I looked at her and laughed “let’s go” I said and they all followed me
*
“How are we meant to find him? What does he look like? Do you know his name or anything? Tell us everything T” said Clara

Picturing an image of Robert in my head when someone tapped on my shoulder “hello again” and I turned around and it was Robert “hello” I said “what’s your name?” asked Robert “Tessa Jane Mary Harriet Harmer” I said proudly “wow that’s a lovely name lady Tessa” said Robert “thankyou” I said half smiling “you are more than welcome my lady. It is a beautiful name for a beautiful lady such likes yourself” said Robert “thank-you, I want you to meet my friends. They are awesome” I said and we went to the kitchen “guys, this is Robert” I said. All four girls looked at Robert “hi Robert, nice to meet you” said Lynette offering to shake his hand “the pleasure is all mine my lady, what is your name? Guess it’s a beautiful name like you” said Robert kindly “aww well aren’t you a gentlemen” said Lynette “I’m Lynette Grace Solis” “I told you it would be beautiful” said Robert “thankyou” said Lynette smiling “I didn’t know your middle name was Grace?” I asked

*
How could I not know about this?

*
“Well you do now, don’t worry” said Lynette smiling. I tried to fake a smile and be agreeable to not worry about not knowing Lynette’s middle name. “I’m Susan, nice to meet you” said Susan shaking Robert’s hand “the pleasure is all mine my lady. What is your full name?” asked Robert. Susan cleared her throat and we waited “Susan Taylor Isabelle Jessica Solis” said Susan breathing “that’s such a lovely name and a long one” said Robert and I together smiling “thankyou” said Susan “so Robert, you have some explaining to do. What are you doing? Why did you keep disappearing? Are you a ghost? Are you dead? Why live here? How did you get in here without a key? Do you know Mr Hunter? How do you know Mr Hunter? Are you really from 1970? Or is this a joke?” I said “woah T, calm down with the questions!” said Lynette sounding shocked, ignoring her I looked at Robert “well…?” I asked impatiently waiting and looking at Robert “I live here with my younger yet annoying sister. Because I can’t befriend you humans. Yes. Yes. Because I died in here. I lived here in the 1970’s. Yes we do. Yes we are from 1970 and no it’s not a joke” said Robert “why can’t you befriend us?” I asked “we will disappear forever” said Robert “we?” I asked “there’s more of you?” asked Lynette “yes but only me and my sister live here, so you don’t have to look so scared” said Robert looking at us laughing “sister? Yes we do know Mr Hunter” said Robert “he is our distance grandfather” he said “oh my god” I said “I’m sorry my lady, but what do you mean by “oh my god”?” asked Robert “he’s my uncle, we’re kind of related” I said “wow” said Lynette “didn’t see that one coming” said Susan smiling “so where is your sister? I want to meet her” I said rushing to my feet “you can’t my lady” said Robert stopping me “oh why not?” I said “because she’s hidden” said Robert “where? Why is she hidden?” I asked “because we can’t befriend humans” said Robert “why?” I said getting inpatient “because we will disappear forever” said Robert catching up with me “but I don’t get it? Why does she disappear? How could you didn’t disappear?” Lynette and I asked. No one talked for a few minutes and I was starting to get inpatient and Robert looked at me and signed “okay T, I’ll be ten minutes” said Robert giving me a hug “great” I said smiling and Robert ran off

*
4 hours later, I and the girls were still waiting for Robert, to pass the time, we took lots of pictures. “I bet this is a joke, something to do with Max” I said “who’s Max?” asked Susan “my annoying younger brother Su” I said “he’s a pain” “and so are you potato head” and I turned around and my little brother (not so little anymore) was standing there with suitcases and bags and a big grin on his face
“What are you doing? I thought you were on tour?” I said sounding annoying yet happy “can’t I come and see my big sister? Is there a law against it?” asked Max giving me a hug “no of course not, but there’s always a catch” I said. Max gasped “T, how can you say such a thing?” said Max “because it’s true, there’s always a catch with you. What is it?” I said slightly annoyed now “well if you haven’t already noticed, I’ve grown up” said Max “no you haven’t, now what is the catch?” I asked getting more and more angry by the minute “t, I don’t think there isn’t one” said Lynette “see” said Max “okay so what are you doing here?” I asked “for your birthday” said Max sounding so innocent “I didn’t know it was your birthday t, why didn’t you tell me?” asked Lynette “it’s not, he’s lying” I said “I’m not, I’m here for your birthday and I am not lying because it’s the 24th April today so it’s the 25th April tomorrow and that’s your birthday” said Max “well we’re got a lot of planning to do then” said Susan “aww what for?” I asked “for your birthday party silly” said Lynette “aww thank you, okay let’s do this” I said
