Mr. Sumptons Ghost: Another CT & Grasshopper Journey
As she was going back upstairs she heard what sounded like a young girl talking. It was the children’s section of the Library, so CT didn’t think much of it. She started up the stairs when she heard what sounded like a young girl say,tag, your it. Now CT didn’t want to be rude to anyone, but she didn’t have time to play games. So, she continued up the stairs, but now she heard someone giggling. As she glanced around she saw what looked like a young girl, no more than five or six, dart behind the book cabinet, as if hiding. I’m sorry but I don’t have time to play with you. Maybe you better find your mom, CT hollered over. Now the girl spoke up. No-one ever wants to play with me and I’m so lonely, the little girl whispered.
For some reason, CT felt a chill come over her. Her arms had goosebumps and she felt strange. She was at the top of the staircase, but she stopped and slowly turned around. My names CT, what’s yours? And why are you hiding behind the cabinet? A pretty girl with long brown hair stuck her head out and whispered. My names Adi, and I can’t find my parents. Will you help me? Now CT felt strange but she wasn’t sure why. But she didn’t have a good feeling about this. The last time something like this happened was when she saw old man Sumptons ghost. CT whispered, I’ll be back in a minute, ok? Ok, the girl answered. I’ll be here. I never leave.
CT sprinted up the last few stairs as fast as she could, running smack into Grasshopper. She cut off whatever he was about to say. Hey, what’s wrong with you, he asked her? There’s a little girl downstairs that says she can’t find her parents, CT was talking very fast now. And she wanted me to play hide and seek with her. Hide and what, he asked? You know, hide, then seek, then tag, your it? That game? But it makes no since, CT was shaking her head. I mean she says she can’t find her parents but she wants me to play a game with her? Isn’t that weird to you? Or have we just been talking about ghost for too long today?
