“Liar!” she exclaimed.

“I’ve been telling you stories. That’s all lies.”

“You know I hate ghosts,” she frowned and pulled the blanket over her head.

For a moment, the two orphans didn’t make a sound.

“And you’re afraid of them?” Peter knew the night became colder now.

“Y-yeah…” She sounded starting to weep under the blanket. “But you said there’s no such thing. I’m trying to believe in you.”

Peter froze. Since last week he had tried not to look bloodless and pale, and made sure walking right on the floor. For he had already died.

  1. A wonderful story! Even in death he’s stayed with her. I hope she’s in no danger of joining him soon – as an orphan living alone that could be a worry. Really well done. 🙂
