“Hurry up slow poke!” I said laughing, talking to my cousin Zoe. We were walking to the bridge in South Haven from my great grandmas house. As we started talking about god knows what, when I noticed that the wildlife stopped being noisy.
Zoe was procrastinating because she had a “bad feeling” honestly I always trust my gut, and I felt fine. So I just kept walking, because I knew she would follow eventually. As I was looking at the bridge, I saw my old best friend, Conner. He was my OLD best friend because when we were 9 he died in a train accident, so it was weird seeing his spirit. He looked like we could be twins! Fraternal of course ’cause he is a boy and I’m a girl. Blonde hair, and blue eyes, although he had no glasses.
He said in the same voice that I knew when we were little, “It’s ok Livy, don’t worry, I’ll always watch out for you, like you did me.” Then he vanished, but before he gave me a necklace that I wear every day from that day on. I am a firm believer in the paranormal so I knew it was real.
If you’re wondering, that whole thing “I’ll always watch out for you, like you did me.” He was once being bullied so bad he was crying. He told me who did it, and I went up to them with him by my side, and said something along the lines of “You want him? Huh?! Then you’ll have to go through me ya dingus!!” As I was feared in my old school, heck even now when I’m 11 and in a new school, I’m still feared.
I asked Zoe if she had seen that and she replied no but that she liked my necklace. As she said that the animals resumed all their chatter. That memory will never ever leave my mind, and I don’t mind because it makes me very, very, very happy.
