Caro stayed awake
a long time ..
.


friendship stories for kids

This past year she had felt safe enough to stay in her room and think about the dream, and sometimes write in her journal. And this dream would be hard to talk about. Both Caro's parents pooh-poohed ghosts and ghost stories. Her father would make a joke out of everything, especially if Caro told about the moving sweatshirt. He might even make fake ghost noises, and laugh. Woooooh. Wooooh.
        Caro stayed awake a long time.
        A nightlight kept her company. She was afraid of the dark. Her mother said she would outgrow it. Her father shrugged. Caro could not imagine what it was like, not being afraid of the dark.

Caro did not go near Geela’s tiny cottage the next day. But as she was coming out of the grocery store, a fudgicle in one hand, her backpack stuffed with absolutely everything on her mother’s list, she almost bumped into Geela herself.
        "Hello," Geela said and smiled.
        Caro wanted to pretend not to see Geela, but she couldn't ignore the greeting. She looked up. Just like the day before, Geela looked like an everyday grownup. No warts, witch's hat, long curved black fingernails. She didn't even look like flaky Fran Perkins, whom all the tourists went to, to have their palms read. Some locals went too, Caro knew, but they didn't usually talk about it.
        Geela stood right in front of Caro, still smiling her friendly smile. “You had a visitor last night, didn’t you?”            Caro was taken aback. How could Geela know? Fluffers couldn’t talk – or could she tell things to Geela?
        “Do you remember?”
        Caro stayed silent.
        Geela paused, pulled a red plush slipper out of her shoulder bag. “Yours?”
        Caro recognized it, wasn’t sure she should admit this, but as usual the truth won out. “Yes.”
        Geela passed it to her. Now Caro had a fudgicle in one hand and a red plush slipper in the other. Great, what if Cassie and Liana saw her? Plus, there she was, talking to a grownup instead of making fun of her.

Geela saw Caro standing silently in front of her, a red plush slipper in one hand, a fudgicle in the other. "Should I hold the slipper until you're finished with your ice cream?" Geela volunteered.

the beginning     just before

Meg, Jon and Myra Face a Cold and Rainy Day

Meg didn't like it when the wind howled. There were no grownups around, which always made things a bit spooky,
though she knew she was safe. Anyway, it wasn't dark yet. But it would be soon.

At least her cousin was around. And with Myra around, everything had to be all right. Myra would whack a ghost just like that.
Meg was almost sure of that. But even Myra wasn't a grownup. Grownups changed things.
Everything was different when a grownup was around.

Meg decided to play words in her head. That would make everything feel safer. She did that whenever things felt spooky,
like when she was alone in her room in the dark. Stories for kids, kids story, kids stories, kid stories, online kids books.
She closed her eyes for a moment. Stories for kids, kids story, kids stories, kid stories, online kids books.
Usually she said things three times for luck. Stories for kids, kids story, kids stories, kid stories, online kids books.

Good. Now she could go back to concentrating on the story.
