All the students from Dent Senior High school were present in the auditorium. They are in remembrance of the late sixteen year old student Howard Kellen. The school principal and staff dedicated that day to him. His parents Laci and Carl were present. Everyone was crying and mourning.
“We are here to remember our late good friend Howard Kellen. He is here present as a zombie,” the principal announced.
“We welcome back, Howard Kellen!” he proudly shared.
All the audience was laughing at him as if he was a fool. But, Howard Kellen came to the podium, and his classmates became shocked.
“I know what you all are thinking. I should probably be gone from the real world, and be at Heaven. But, never fear my friends, I am back. This is all that matters now. I am still your faithful friend to hang out with and party with you all the time,” Howard said.
His friends didn’t knew what to think and how they should be his friend in the present. He is a zombie now. They don’t know how to cope with it. They will have to accept him for what he is. I think that his tragic car accident that he died from a drunk driver did the work.
Everyone in the auditorium was having second doubts. It is their problem today. They will have to deal with it. But, if he’s back that is what is important now.
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.
