(Hours later)


I had just finished having my night shower and pulling into my pajamas when Henry appeared in.

After I went downstairs with aunt Kiki to have dinner, he hadn’t showed up but here he is again, to trouble me.


“I ain’t troubling you, im only begging you to help me out here.” he said.


“I told you not to be reading my mind.” I barked at him.

“You shouldn’t let your voice be loud or your aunt might hear you and you’ll end


up telling her another lie.” he said.

“You cause them all.” I said.


He shrugged, “I know.”


He dropped his red guitar beside me.


I felt like touching but a crazy thought came in.


He chuckled, “It won’t disappear. It’s my bestfriend. When I fell inlove with the guitar and wanted to have it so much, I begged the seller not sell it out that im gonna do everything I can to bring him the money the next day. When he finally accepted, I ran home and had to borrow from my mother, then after I bought it, I gave her back the money from playing the guitar in the high streets all day though I didn’t complete the money.” he said.

“Really?” I said.

“Can you play me the song, ‘Once upon a river flow’” I said.


He chuckled, “Maybe I should play, ‘London Bridge’” I laughed.



“Okay, play me my favourite song, the one I wanted to record but you didn’t let me.” I said.


He smiled, “You know why I didn’t let you, cos if you do, I won’t appear in the video and even if you record only my voice, you won’t hear it after.” he said.


I inhaled. Oh really.


“Yeah, so im gonna play it only if you promise me this.” he said.


I knew already.

“Im not gonna promise you that, I need to think about it, give me awhile.” I said.



He giggled, “Not that, I mean promise me you not gonna try to record it.”



“Ah alright.”


“Can I sit beside you?” he asked.


I shifted a bit away.

“Yeah.” I said.


“but you shifted away.”


“Not really.”


“Yeah you did.” he said and sat down, his feet still wasn’t touching the floor.



He took his guitar and played few strings. Then he began.




Bittersweet me…


Inperfect songs…


But hey, Im not minding at all.


I learn from every mistakes I do..


You don’t like me, there’s someone else that do.


Im not perfect, baby you are not too.


But im so happy to be me all tho.


They say im little but I don’t mind at all.


They say im not better than they all,


oh yeah.


Im just trying to be me.


Never wanna be anybody but me….







“Why do you love the song, it ain’t so sweet?” he asked after he was done.


I shrugged, “I guess cos it talks about yourself, about who you really are.” I said.

“Yeah.” he said.


“How do you get the inspirations?” I asked him.


“Sometimes when im asleep, sometimes when im playing the guitar, at times when


im eating, running or learning in class.” he said.






“I think I gotta sleep.” I said.


“Alright.” he said.


“You should leave.” I said.


He shrugged and got up from the bed.


I stared at him, waiting for him to go but he wasn’t acting like he’s about to leave.


“Henry what are you still waiting for?”


“Are you scared to sleep while im here?”


“Don’t you sleep!” I asked.


“No.” he said.


I sighed and pulled the duvet over my body.


“Can I tell you something Isa?” he said.


“What’s it?” I asked.


“That.. I I..Like you alot.” he said.


“You can’t like me, you are a ghost.” I said.


“It doesn’t matter. I like you Isa.” he reapeated.



Okay. I’ve gotta sleep.

“Goodnight Isa.” he said.


“Oh better.” I said. He disappeared, only for me to hear him minutes later, singing






Everbody’s looking for that something..


Something that makes it all..complete.


You find it in the strange places,.


Places you never knew it could be..




Some found it in the face of their children


Some found it in.. their lover’s eyes.


You can’t deny the joy it brings…


When you found that special thing…


You’re flying without wings….









I fell asleep.








I woke up by the repeat calling of my name by a very weak voice.


I was astonished to see it was Henry.


His hair scattered to his face in a crazy way and I wondered why.


His eyes were dull and he rested his back on my closet with his guitar in his hand.


“What happened?” I asked, sitting up.


“I don’t know. I felt something like electric shock last night. Like my body was


being touched by something very harmful. I feel weak. I have to get to my body.” he said.


I swallowed, “Gosh, what do we do?” I asked, frightened.


“You’ve got to help me Isa. Find my body, release my soul.” he said.


“How im I gonna do this?” I asked.


“The Holloways.” he said.


“The Holloways!!” I sighed.


“The Holloways.” he repeated, then slumped down.



I rushed to him but before I could, he disappeared. Like a smoke.


That is not the way he use to disappear! and his guitar didn’t go with him. Oh my God, Henry!

“Henry!!!!” I screamed out loud and fell on my knees.


“Henry!!!!. Henry!!” I cried.



“Isabel! Isabel Are you alright?” I heard aunt Kiki’s voice. Then followed by the


opening of the door.


She rushed in, to me.


“Isabel what’s the matter?” she got down and hugged me tightly.


“Henry..” I cried.


“Henry? who’s Henry?” she said.


“Henry. I have to find Henry.” I cried.


“Oh my God Isabel, you are scaring the hell outta me dear child. Who is Henry?”








(Minutes later)


“He’s a ghost.”


“A ghost!?”


“Yes. He’s been with me since yesterday but I met him the the very day I came


here while he was singing in the night. He was the one who made me send Rose away. He’s the one I was always talking to while I tell you I was on a phone call.” I said then I took her hands with tears in my eyes.


“The night I first heard him singing, I loved his songs, his songs, he’s so cute. He


was sitting just right at the next house window. I had no idea he was a ghost… but when he came to me I found out, I was damn scared at first but now im not. He needs my help aunt, I need to get to the Holloways.”


She blinked her eyes with shock, “Isa, don’t talk about the Holloways, they are the family of Elizabeth. They are evil, they will hurt you.”


“I have to go aunt. I need to save Henry and save my niece, Regina too.” She gasped, “Regina? What do you mean?”

“Henry said that she isn’t dead. That the Holloways are holding her captive. Aunt I


have to do this. Im the only one who sees Henry and there’s a reason and this is the reason.” I said.


She cupped my cheek in her palm.


I can see the fear in her eyes just like she can see mine too.


“Isabel, this was never what I and your dad planned for your indoor holiday.” she



“I know but im glad im here, im gonna fight for my niece and for Henry. I don’t


care how I do it but im gonna get into there and release them.” I said.


She smiled as tears dropped from her eyes.


“Then Im gonna go with you.” she said.


I gasped, “Aunt.”

“Yeah.” she said and hugged me.








Henry’s POV





Im weak… im being tied down in place. In this glass coldy cage.


The smoke.. the fire, the sand.


I need someone to take them away.


I feel so weak.. I can’t use my ghost power.


Im being paused like a statue.


I can’t move, I can’t talk.


Im being pinned down.


Ohh Isabel.. I need you here.


You’ve gotta save me..


Before I fade away.


The long door opened and she walked in.


Juliet Holloways.


In a black long robe with a red thin belt tied around the stomache.


Her blue eyes peering into mine as she let out a loud mockery laugh.


“Ohh dearest.. Such a long time.” she said and touched her black hair which fell to


her shoulders.

“You never thought I could get you isn’t it?” she smiled. “Oh great I did. I caught


you. I did, now I have you and your body with me. Isn’t that pleasant? ohh yeah it is. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.” she laughed out horiffically, turned and walked out, slamming shut the long door.


I breathed out..
