*rings* I opened my phone a text from john “yea I’m up Claire”. Good he’s awake I hoped he wasn’t asleep at 12:00 A.M. I am a 13 year old girl named Claire I have short brown hair with blond highlights and blue eyes, john is a 14 year old boy with blonde hair he is either wearing all black or camo. To him we are just friends but I like to imagine his hand griped softly around mine or his arms wrapped around me protectively but very relaxed. Frequently I have been dreaming of his lips touching mine ever so softly then two seconds later pulling back and smiling so sweetly it would make u melt. I have given him my heart and I hope on day he will give me his. I get out of bed and out of my pj’s, pull on a pair or black pants and a black and gray striped long sleeve shirt. I tell john to meet me by the junior high at 1:00A.M. And run out the door.

~~

I have been waiting at the school for 2 hours (now 2:15 A.M.) I wonder if he fell asleep. I txt him, no answer. I start to walk home then I hear “watch out Claire!!” john yelled. I turned swiftly, he (not paying attention) crashes his skateboard into the bushes “oof” he says as he lands flat on his back, I ran over and help him up. “Are you ok?” I ask. “Yea I guess just a few scratches.” He says as he brushes the dirt off his black kakis and black disturbed shirt, his long blonde hair blowing slightly in the wind. “Your late” I say “I know I had to wait till my mom and dad went to bed” says john. “Do u want to go into the woods at the back of the school?” I ask. “I guess” says john. We raced into the woods (he was always faster than me) *panting* “wait up!!!” I yell. “No way slow poke!” he yells gaining speed. I tripped and fell and soon he was out of sight. “arrrrrroooooooooooo!!!” came the howl of a wolf followed by a scream. Its john! I run faster into the woods towards the howl, I came into a clearing what I saw before me, a pure white wolf (about the size of a full grown husky) and by a tree 10 feet away about where I ran in was a limp unmoving figure. As I look closer I realize its john! “Oh no” I say quietly so the wolf doesn’t notice me. I walk slowly over to john and notice a gun on the ground I pick it up, aim, and bang! The wolf drops dead into the mud. I see blood all over john’s leg I pick him up an carry him back to my house, climbing through the window I lay him down on my bed, roll up his kakis revealing a bite wound as large as my hand (about 6 inches) I grab the first aid kit, clean the blood and dirt from the wound. Putting on alcohol to kill the germs and he winces in his sleep. After wrapping the wound I kiss him on the cheek. “I’ll let him sleep in my bed” I think then make my bed on the floor with a sleeping bag and some blankets.

~~

I awoke the next night on the floor I looked up to my bed to see john breathing softly but just loud enough to hear him. I got up on the bed still in my pj’s and layed down next to him wondering if he can feel me then, he says “you know I wasn’t asleep right” “omigod! John!!” I yelled “its ok it’s ok I know u love me, anyway I’m gonna sleep longer my leg is killing me.” Says john in that amazing voice he has. “May I lie next to you?” I ask “I don’t really Care” he responds as I lay down next to him. He put his arm around me and closed his eyes I put my arms around him “sleep well” I whisper softly. “hearing the drops of rain hit my window softly *tap tap tap* as the world (it being 12:00am) layed down to rest< I could feel johns warmth as he slept next to me snoring so softly it sounded as if he was breathing< after hearing the quite tap of the rain and the warm protective arms of john I finally drifted to sleep.

~~

My dream that night as they are every night was very vivid as if I dreamt the future I dreamt of john and the wolves spirit (as it is now that I have killed it) john had an arm around me protectively as if to say don’t mess with me> the wolf snarled at us not daring to get close. The wolf slowly changed shape taking the figure of a woman dressed in a long white gown down to her ankles with long blonde hair down to about her waist. “Who are you?” I ask she answered with a long “arrrrrrrroooooooooooooooo” then runs closer at the speed of light. She bolts behind me and I felt hand wrap around my neck squeezing tighter and tighter and the sharp pierce of claws as they dig into my neck. I hear john’s voice scream “Claire” and I suddenly awoke in my room john holding me close as if he was protecting me. “W...what are you doing?” I ask sleepily. “You where screaming and I thought something happened.” He says glaring at me with a straight face no frown or a smile oh my gosh!! I think you love me!!” I say playfully “You wish!” He says smirking “You’re so mean” I say throwing a pillow at him. “Nice throw but u missed and it didn’t hurt “He says “It wasn’t supposed to hurt you genius” I say “I know I am” John says “Total burrrrrnnnnn” I say as he smiles. “Omg you’re smiling” I say he laughs a little “Oh my gosh you’re laughing to!!!” I say he stops laughing and puts on a straight face. “I was” He says “You were” I respond “Was” he says “Were” I say “You have a cute smile do u need a change of clothes?” I ask “Yah” He says “These pants are real bloody why was I attacked by that wolf?” he asks “I don’t know” I answer “maybe u were in its territory I have to tell u about my dream…in school” I say.

~~

John and I walked through the big glass doors of the school, John was limping but it was hard to notice. “Will you tell me your dream now?” asks john. “Fine”. As I explained my dream john stayed silent for a while as if he was listening carefully to every detail. “Very interesting” He says “I think it’s trying to tell us something, maybe the wolf I killed is actually a woman?” I question. “Maybe buy dreams don’t usually tell the future” john says all smart like. “You have an explanation for everything!” I joke. Lizzy runs up to us ponytail bouncing in the air. “HEY JOHN!!! HEY CLAIRE!!!” she says enthusiastically. “Hey lizzy” I say “anything new?!?!” she asks fixing her glasses. “No just a weird dream” I say “I got attacked by a wolf” John adds. “Oh my gosh!!! R you ok????” Lizzy says with concern. “Yup I’ve gotten worse” he says “Oh ok, well bye guys I got to get to class” she says running away smiling. “That was weird” I say “Yah” John says. “Do u want to get to class? What do we have first?” I ask “German” he answers. “Same” I say as we walk down the hall. “How do you say I love you?” I ask “Ich liebe dich” he answers. “Oh my gosh you do?!!!” I say silly like. “hahaha no” john says. After class we went to get some lunch, we had study hall next. “So do you think this wolf girl will become a ghost?” I ask “I don’t know” he says. Soon the day was over and I was in my room. “Will u come to the school at 1:00am again we have to investigate, bring your gun or maybe a knife to anything you would use to fight ghosts.” *message sent*. It’s a quarter to one, I get out of my pjs grab a pair of black jeans and a long sleeve black shirt. Soon I’m out the door half way to the school. *rings* opening my phone I found a text from john. “Mom said I have to bring Dan be there in five” I closed my phone and waited. 10 minutes later they finally arrive John riding his skateboard and Dan running close behind. “Hey Dan” I say giving him a hug. “I love you” he whispers. “I love ya too buddy” I say “awkward” John says *sigh* “come on guys” I say annoyed. We walked into the woods over to the wolf. “Well here is its dead body.” I say pointing at the wolf in the mud. “Looks dead” Dan says “um…Dan it is dead” I say.

~~

*Ring* “Hello?” I ask “HEY!! IT’S LIZZY!!!!! DO U WANNA SLEEPOVER!!!?!!?!?! WITH ME AND DEBBIE???!!!” asks Lizzy. “Sure see ya in a few” I say. I arrived an hour later dressed in blue jeans and a red tee shirt. Lizzy joyfully opened the door with her friend Debbie. Debbie has rainbow hair and was completely dressed in black with a belly button piercing. “Do you have a nose piercing?” I ask “Yup” Debbie answers. A few hours later (about 10pm) we were lying in Lizzy’s room on our sleeping bags. Lizzy was wearing red Pjs with reindeer on them, Debbie was wearing a black long sleeve night gown with black leggings, and I was wearing pink pjs with peace signs on them. “So Debbie so you think ghosts are real?” I ask. “Yes I’ve seen one” says Debbie. “Oh cool well I had a dream last night” I say explaining my dream, as soon as I finished Debbie said “I think that a wolf woman is going to come back from the dead to haunt you!! BOO!!!!” “AHHHH!!!!” Lizzy screamed as all three of us burst out laughing as my phone rings. “HELLO?” I ask “HI!!!” Says Dan. “Oh hey Dan is your brother around?” I ask. “No he’s asleep” answers Dan “how can you tell?” I ask confused “He snores” answers Dan laughing. At that moment Lizzy’s little brother Tom ran into the room and started screaming. “TOM!!” Lizzy yells, “MOM!!! TOM IS IN MY ROOM!!!!!!!!” “Tom come down here now!” Lizzy’s mom yells. “Sorry about that Dan you know how Tom is” I say “yeah” Dan says “Annoying!!!!” after hanging up with Dan, Debbie came over and started laughing. “Why are you laughing?” I ask annoyed. “Is….he…..your….boyfriend?” Debbie asks between giggles. “Yes” I answer “Oh” Debbie says as she immediately stops laughing. “I’m waiting for john to call maybe, he will wake up soon”, I say “ok?” Lizzy questions like she is confused. The three of us burst out laughing then my phone rings. “How come I always get a phone call when were laughing!?” I say still giggling as I picked up the phone, hearing a voice on the other line. “Hello?” said the voice. “John!?” I ask a little to loudly. “Yes?” he asks. “It’s 2am!!” I say laughing a little. “Oh” says john. “We um…need to talk about this wolf.” We talked for about two hours then I knew it was to late. “John I have to go” I say depression hanging in my voice. “Oh …ok bye” says john.

~~

It was Sunday about 9:00am after breakfast Lizzy, tom, Debbie, and I pilled into the car and went to church. After church we met up with John and Dan because there mom and Lizzy’s mom and their mom had a meeting for reasons I do not know. Even though I love metal I could not recognize the song or the band John was listening to. I walked up to Dan and smiled “hi Dan: I said. Dan smiled back “hey” he said, at that second I caught John looking at me I turned and he quickly looked away. I don’t think he saw but I was blushing< Dan saw “what’s wrong?” he asked. “Nothing” I say “well that’s good” he says reaching for my hand< I let him grab it and for a moment I didn’t want him to let go. I put my arms around him not daring to let go... he does the same. We pull away and a single tear falls from my cheek, I backed away slowly “I’m going to go talk to John quick.” I say. “Quickly I walk over to John. “Why did you look at me?!?” I asked in a loud whisper. “I have to tell you” he says hesitantly “I got a girlfriend” he says. “Oh “I say “that’s good I’m proud of you.” “Tell the truth you’re mad.” Says John. “Yeah but I have Dan” I say forcing a smile I hear someone calling my name and I turned seeing Dan I hear someone calling my name and I turned seeing Da. I jogged over to him and gave him a hug < I love you” he says “I love you too” I say. We sit together for a time holding hands and talking. We hug again and he pulls away slowly, I stared into his eyes my only thought *what will it feel like?* than it happened, my eyes we closed, they opened and Dan was kissing me. It was the most wonderful feeling, I wish it would happen again.

~~

Later that night, I was texting in my room, when there was a loud band outside my window. A woman dressed in white was outside my window…howling. Quickly I texted john as fast as I could “HELP!!!”… No response. I started to run as the woman chased me down the hall, I turned and found myself in a dead end. “Oh no!! What do I do?!” I think as she gets closer. “Who are you?” I manage to choke out as she floated up toward where I was standing, paralyzed with fear “why did you shoot me?” was the woman’s response. “Y…you attacked my…friend” I choked. “I will kill you both” she says then disintegrates as if into thin air. I screamed loud enough to be heard across America, after calming down, my phone rings. “Hello?” I say my voice still shaky. “It’s Dan, what happened?!!! John told me u asked for his help” Dan said concerned. “I just saw the ghost of the wolf!!! She’s a woman!!! She’s going to kill John and I!!” I yell a little too loud and crazy like the world was ending, (which it was for John and I) “Hold on ill tell him” Dan says, I heard talking but it was muffled then, John yells “What!! We going to die!?!?!?!?!?!?!” asks john. “Yup” I say. “Hold on I’m on my way there. Dan’s coming too” says john “I will be there with in…” John started just as the line goes dead *what happened with the phone?* I think looking out the window. *thunder storm struck the bower lines? Figures* I think a bit annoyed. *tap tap tap* was the sound of knocking at the door. “Coming!” I yell from down the hall, by the time I reach the door I was out of breath but I managed to say “hi” as John and Dan come inside. “Hey” Dan says in that sweet voice of his (I gave up liking John) “wait why are we going to die? Shouldn’t it just be you?” John asks. “Yes and no, I killed her t save you so she wants to destroy both of us and anyone who gets involved, Dan you in danger now don’t let her find you” I say. “AW!!!!! Come on!!!” Dan says. “Sorry” John and I say at the same time. “Sucks doesn’t it” says John. “Yeah” says Dan *Dan looks frustrated* I think, I touch his hand and his stress goes away immediately and he smiles. “We do this together” we all say at the same time.

~~

A week went by and everything got weirder. I was seeing the woman every night she would say the same thing “I will kill you both”, one day it just hit me, what I needed to defeat the ghost. *ring* was the sound of the dial tone as I called John “What do you want? Its 2am.”John says sleepily. “I think I know a way to defeat the ghost. “How?” John says now fully awake. “All ghosts need to be put to rest right?” I ask “Go on” John says “Well we need to find out what will put her to rest” I say matter of factly. “How we supposed to do that?” asks john. “Come over tomorrow night before 12.A.M, bring Dan” I add hanging up the phone. *finally a full nights sleep* I think as I drift off*

~~

The school day was a blur, and before you know it was a quarter to 12am “Where are they?” I say under my breath. There is a loud knock at the door “Hey” Dan says as they walk in. The room was pitch black, three candles formed a triangle on top of a round table. Dan on my left, John on my right. We grabbed hands as if starting a ritual. “What are you gonna do?” asks Dan. “Call the ghost” answers John. “OH great wolf woman! Come out of the darkness and tell us what we may do to serve thee so thou may pass on?!” I chant. The wind stopped, No grass hoppers chirping, dead silence. A loud howl cut the silence, we turned and there behind me out of the darkness was the woman “WHY DID YOU CALL ME?!” the woman booms. “How may we put thee to rest?” I ask not taking my eyes off her. “You must give me a strand of hair from the wizard Lero’s Daughter.” Says the woman. “Aww!! How are we supposed to do that we don’t even know this girl!!” complains Dan. “Wait…did you say Lero? That’s my dad’s name!!” I yell excitedly, taking a strand of my hair and giving it to the ghost. A bright light glowed from the Ghost not longer an eerie, cold, lifeless glow but a light gleaming with happiness and love. The tattered white dress on the woman mended into a beautiful wedding dress and she sprouted beautiful wings the color of the finest gold. A young man about 25 came out of the darkness in a tux with the same wings. “Come my dearest Angeline, heaven awaits and so does our wedding” says the man. “Thank you” Angeline says “for bringing me back to William.” The two kiss and a flash of golden light they were gone. “Well I’m glad that’s over” says John. Dan got closer and we kissed. My heart skipped a beat and I knew things we finally back to normal, or are they?
