Sam woke up hearing soft sobs to her right. She sat up her hand curled around thin air the cool ghostly hand that had been there was now gone and was busily wiping tears from the acid green eyes of a five year old ghost. Danny was too busy crying to notice Sam who was staring at Danny not knowing quite what to do.
"Danny?" Sam finally asked hesitantly. Danny looked up eyes filled with tears, Sam felt a bit annoyed that he was crying with no reason, but felt bad because he looked so helpless. The lost five year old ghost stared up at Sam sadly.
"Are you ok?" Sam asked.
"No." Danny said defiantly turning his head away from Sam a pout on his lips, "I'm dead." Danny said trying to keep his composure but he just ended up crying again bringing his small knees up to his chest.
"Well… you have cool powers." Sam said trying to comfort the ghost boy that was crying on her deep purple carpet.
"B-but… I'm dead.. I don't get to see my mommy or my daddy and even evil Jazz ever again!" Danny cried out.
"Well that is sad." Sam said. Danny gave out a soft cry burying his face in his knees.
"I'm not gonna see my friend or go to Disneyland and I'm not gonna…" Danny broke off wailing pathetically. "MOMMY! DADDY!" Danny cried. Sam got of the bed.
"Shhhhh, my parents are gonna hear you." Sam said trying to get Danny to be quiet. However at the mention of parents Danny started wailing louder bright ghostly tears streaming down his cheeks while he cried.
"Sam?" Jeremy was standing in the door Danny looked up and abruptly turned invisible just before the lights came on.
"Sam?" Jeremy asked Sam stood up.
"Um… daddy… Danny was… he was crying because he died and is a ghost so…" Sam got cut off.
"Sam… where is Danny?" Jeremy asked the girl. Sam pointed to where she last saw Danny.
"He was just right there." Sam said. Jeremy nodded.
"Why can't I see Danny?" Jeremy asked.
"Because he's a ghost and he turned invisible." Sam said. Jeremy stared at Sam.
"Sam, I have no problems with your imaginary friend but when you start wailing like that this isn't funny anymore, neither is having a ghost as your imaginary friend. It's kind of morbid." Jeremy said.
"But it's true!" Sam protested. Jeremy grabbed Sam shoulders staring her in the eye.
"If you're going to have friends stick with the living kind. No ghosts. No dead people." Jeremy said. Sam pouted.
"But he's so sad. There was an accident and his parents don't even know…."
"Samantha Manson! Danny doesn't exist. Why you would want to entertain such depressing thoughts I have no idea." Jeremy said, "No more about Danny. Danny is going to heaven now and you'll never see Danny again." Jeremy said. Sam blinked tearing up.
"But… Danny needs me, he's sad. He can't go to heaven yet he has to find his mommy and daddy." Sam said. Jeremy was getting angry.
"There is no Danny, he doesn't exist!"
"Yes he does, he a ghost my age with white hair and green eyes and a black and white jumpsuit!" Sam yelled, "He likes space and wanted to be an astronaut and he's sweet and nice and better than you daddy!" Sam yelled.
"Sam ghosts don't exist." Jeremy said. Sam was now crying.
"Yes he does…. Danny, Danny!" Sam yelled for Danny. Victoria came to the door and shoed Jeremy away who stood somberly at the door face in a twisted expression the bridge of his nose between his thumb and forefinger.
"Sam, we'll take Danny home tomorrow ok." Victoria promised, "Go to bed now and tomorrow Danny can ride back to Amity Park with us ok." Victoria said.
"Ok." Sam said.
"Now go to sleep." Victoria said kissing Sam on the forehead, "You need your rest my angel." Victoria said. Sam nodded and climbed into her bed. Victoria smiled.
"Goodnight Sammy." Victoria said.
"Goodnight mommy." Sam said lying in her pillow. Her parents closed the door and Sam sat up.
"Danny?" She asked. Her only answer was a soft sob from the corner of the room.
Just a small update.
10 reviews in just 1 chapter, you guys are awesome.
This chapter is in response to MsFrizzle who pointed out that Danny would probably be more upset. I would think so to so I added this. I guess my excuse now is that Danny wasn't thinking about what being dead meant until later and then he became sad about this.
Hope you've enjoyed my popcorn chapter.
Oh and should I make Danny half ghost, I have a plot for that drafted out in my head but I also have a plot for him being full ghost. I personally like my half ghost plot better but I'll let you guys decided.
That's all for now folks.
