I hid under the cover till I felt it being pulled off.
I looked on the dresser for my phone and saw it light. But when I tried to grab it the thing pushed the dresser to the door.
"SOMEBODY......HELP MEEE!!" I yelled as I started crying.
He started walking up to me as I backed away.
I soon felt the window behind me tried to lift it up. He turned the light on and locked the window.
"I didn't know you could see me a first..... I'm not gonna hurt ya....... What ya doing in this house" he said not looking me in the eye.
"My..........My dad wanted to move with his girlfriend so I had to come with him and I couldn't stay with my mom because she died two years ago" I said still shaking.
"Well I'm August and you can't live here" he said facing the other way.
"Why not?" I asked.
"Can't you tell I'm a ghost and you can't go around here acting like you don't see me" he said.
"And I can't leave without coming back" he continued.
"Hey its not like I wanted to come here anyways" I said.
"Well I guess we're both stuck here" he said walking through the walls.
When I knew he wasn't coming back I arranged the room back and went to sleep.
*The next day*
I woke up and heard the door slam.
I picked up my phone to check the time but quickly closed my eyes because it was too bright.
"It's 2:30 in the afternoon and your still here........... why is you still here" the ghost said walking through the door.
"You asking me why I'm still here but nobody woke me up so I can go with them" I said walking out the room.
"Can't wait till y'all leave" he said.
"What you mean we not buying another house" I said turning around to look at him.
"Why not? It's a whole ghost and she knows it" he said.
"So she can see you too and she let us stay here" I said.
"I didn't say she could see me" he said and I thought about it.
"So she bought a house she knew somebody died in" I said turning my t.v. on.
"Not exactly but I can't tell you" he said disappearing.
I turned the t.v. up and it was playing unsolved murders.
He came through the wall and turned the t.v off.
"Umm I was watching that" I said getting up to turn it back on.
"Exactly you was watching it" he said sitting on my dresser.
"And still is, why do you care anyways" I said turning back on seeing a picture of him on there.
He tried to turn it back off but I put my hand over the button.
"That's why you can't leave.......... they didn't find your body" I said looking at him as he looked down.
I turned the t.v off and faced him.
"Do you want me to find it?" I said to him and he looked up.
"No............ I can't leave you here............. it's dangerous" he said.
"How I don't see any dangerous ghost" I said.
"You see her all the time and she's not a ghost" he said.
Her? Not a ghost? See her all the time? I thought.
"Oh My God.... IT'S HER ISN'T IT!!...... I GOT TO TELL MY DAD WE HAVE TO LEAVE!!" I said almost having a panic attack.
"You can't tell your dad he'll think your crazy" he said and I looked at him.
"He's not going to think I'm crazy" I said.
"What are you going to say when he asks who told you" he said.
"Damn what am going to do" I said almost crying.
"I'll help you" he said.
"Thanks" I said and I heard my dad say he bought food.
"I'll be back" I said to the ghost.
After I got done eating I went in my room and he was watching family guy.
"Let's play a game" I said when the commercial came on.
"Alright what game" he said.
"Hmm. I would say 21 questions but I don't have that many how about 10 questions each" I said.
"Uhh ok you can go first" he said.
"What is your name" I asked.
"August, yours?" He said.
"Nicki, did you have any siblings" I said and he laughed.
"You sound like them people who be on law and order but yeah I got two brothers" he said.
"Oh" I said.
"How can you see me" he said.
"I honestly don't know. I think I get it from my mom she used to see stuff and be talking to them but we didn't believe her" I said.
"What happened to your mom" I said.
"She died in a car wreck while my dad was at work" he said.
"Oh" I said.
"Where did you stay before you moved here" he said.
"Trinidad, where's your dad" I said.
"She killed him too but they found his body in the kitchen" he said.
"Do you know anybody who lives here" he said.
"Nope, where are your brothers" I said.
"One got shot and killed selling weed, and the other one is grown so he never knew about us moving cause he didn't like my dad" he said.
"But how come your not stuck up" he asked and put my hand over my heart like I was hurt.
"Umm I don't know, how come your not mean" I said.
"Well I don't feel the need to hunt people for something they didn't do" he said.
"What was the ghost name that your mother used to talk to" he asked.
"Izzy I think I never asked" I said.
"How can you touch stuff without going through it" I asked.
"Umm I don't know" he said.
"Did your mom know how to touch ghost" he asked.
"I don't think she did" I said.
"Why does she dress soo rich" I asked.
"Before she killed my dad she put life insurance on him" he said.
"Why you so short" he asked laughing.
"My mom was short" I said.
"What did she kill you with" I said.
"A knife" he said.
"Could you shut up you've been complaining all day" we heard my dad yell.
We raced downstairs to see them arguing.
She saw me and ran to the kitchen and came back with a knife.
"Put the knife down" my dad said and she launched at me.
