Glavine is just a young teen who enjoys watching and reading about the supernatural. He studies very carefully about ghosts. He talks to his parents about the subject. What they Don’t know is that Glavine wants to be a ghost himself.
He tells his dad about his wish. He wants it to come true. Dad tells him that it isn’t a good idea. Glavine becomes frustrated.
“Why do you want to be a ghost?” dad said.
“I can think of a few reasons,” Glavine said.
“Tell me one.” dad said.
“I can never be dead,” he said.
“You have to be dead to be a ghost.” dad said.
“Oh, but can my wish come true by not being dead?” he asked.
“It doesn’t work that way. Also, we don’t want to lose you. We’ll be very sad and in tears, if it happens.” dad said.
“But, dad. You will still have me, but as a ghost,” he said.
“Don’t you want anything more real?” dad asked.
“No, I have already decided,” he said.
His dad doesn’t know how to convince him that it won’t happen. Glavine made his wish and went to sleep in his room. The next day he woke up in the morning as a ghost.
He went to the kitchen with his parents. They were shocked and disappointed. Glavine sat down and ate his breakfast. He is happy, but his parents weren’t. They are just going to have to live with it.
