Sophia: Better Than Expected

I'd never thought knowing things would bring on this stream of events, but as Grace and Seth gave me little snippets about what they thought could 'be the problem', - as Seth put it - I had to stop them.

"AH! Ouch! Wait! Stop!"

"What?" they said at the same time.

"I don't know" I said "I'm being told that this person should be here. They're - ouch - part of the legend too... hm" I pressed the heels of my hands to the sides of my head. "Do any of you know someone called Jeana?"



"Oh, well, maybe she goes to my school, I might see her there... Oh, or maybe I wont" I stopped. Seth and Grace were looking at me as if I'd gone mad. "Sorry, it's a habit"

"Oh. I'm guessing this girl's... invisible?" Seth asked.

"She can be. D'you two mind looking at your school too? I don't think you go to mine"

"No problem" Grace said "But I think we should go now. It's pretty dark"

"SOPHIA!" Dad yelled up the stairs. As soon a he did so I knew the six pack of beer that had been in the fridge wasn't there any more. "GET DOWN HERE NOW!"

"Uhhhh" I groaned "Yeah, maybe you should"


"In fact, you definitely should" I grimaced. "Coming!" I called downstairs.

"Um, yeah" Grace grimaced too

"Definitely" Seth agreed. I led them out the front door (Dad was leaning against the back door looking like he was about to collapse) and said goodbye.  Well, that went better than expected I thought.


"Yes?" I sighed, swinging round to face him.

"I'm going out!" he yelled.

"I'm right in front of you"

"I'm going out!" he yelled again

"OK, Dad" I sighed again. He staggered out and I knew we'd have the police round in the morning. Uhhhhhhhhh.

The End
