A STRANGER ARRIVES

Geela Gribbs was known as more than a little weird.
        She looked ordinary enough to Caro Carolina, when she came to pick up the key to Pirate's Den, the tiny cottage next door. She did all the usual things. She smiled and admired the view of the ocean. Caro's mother said, like she did with all the guests, "You must be tired after your long drive." Geela admitted she was, took the key, turned to go. And then she snapped her fingers, looked downward, and said, "Come on, Fluffers."
        There was no one with Geela Gribbs, no one Caro's mother saw, no one Caro saw. Caro and her mother looked each other in the eye. Without either of them saying a word, they decided then and there that the new guest was weird.
        But it didn't matter, Caro's mother told Caro once the new guest was out of hearing range. Geela had paid in full for two weeks, and she looked harmless.
        That was mid-afternoon, Friday, June 15th, right after Caro's last day of school, two days after Cassie and Liana had said they weren’t talking to her anymore.

No shiver went up or down Caro’s spine. She didn’t have a strange feeling in her stomach. She just plain didn’t have an inkling that, in just one week, she would find herself, in the middle of the night, past the edge of town, on a deserted stretch of road, facing the ditch, needing to climb down into it, and yet afraid to, afraid of what she would find there – but even more afraid of doing wrong if she did not go. An urgent whining was coming from the ditch.
        On June 15th, that was far away.

Meg, Jon and Myra Face a Cold and Rainy Day

As usual, Myra was arguing with Meg and Jonathan who was usually called Jon.
"It's not kids story. It's kid's story. That's the way it's supposed to be spelled."

They were browsing on the web, surfing here and there, trying to find something that maybe they could all agree on.
Meg was typing in stuff like, kids story, childrens story, kids stories, children stories.
Jonathan would push her aside to put in what he wanted,which was something he could listen to instead of read.
He would type kids audio stories, children audio books,
children audio story, online audio stories for kids, kids audio stories.

Meg didn't like listening. Too slow. So no sooner had Jon - or JonJon as she called him when she was mad at him -
typed in children audio book, than ... one two three, she typed in something else, stories for kids, kids story, kids stories.

Then Myra would take over, with all her apostrophes: kids' books, kid's book, children's stories, online stories for children.
Myra was precise. She kept typing online - online stories for kids, online stories for children.

"That's so dumb," Meg went. Of course it would be online. After all, they were online.

"No, it wouldn't have to be online," countered Myra. And she was right. A lot of the time they just found blurbs.
What they wanted was a story.

One book that kept coming up was The Fluffers Book. It had sound, so it suited Jon. It started with A Stranger Arrives.
Not too bad. Maybe someone would be murdered. He liked that kind of story, especially when it was raining and
he was stuck indoors with his sister and his cousin. But he didn't say that out loud. Meg hated anything scary.
Myra didn't care, as long as it was spelled right.

About the third time The Fluffers Book came up, they listened for a bit.

Geela Gribbs was known as more than a little weird.
She looked ordinary enough.

That suited all of them. They all knew that anyone who looked ordinary had to be weird. And they all liked weird.

They stopped their searching and sat around the screen. Jon sat way back. He didn't want to look at the words.
Meg was as close as could be. She wanted to read. She was ten, the youngest - but the biggest reader.
Her cousin Myra was twelve, almost thirteen. And Jon was twelve exactly. He had just had his birthday.

Geela snapped her fingers, looked downward, and said, "Come on, Fluffers."
        There was no one with Geela Gribbs ...

Jon, Meg and Myra all liked that. They loved ghost dogs and weird stuff, way off in some other world.

Soon, in Meg's head, words started going round and round again, kids story, childrens story, kids stories,
online children story, children audio books, kids story.

It was all because she wanted to turn the page. She had finished reading, but Jon was still listening.
