Befriended A Ghost Episode 6
Written by Princess Juliet
Ghostie got a name ( Daphne)
Entering the class on a Monday morning, I glanced at Declan’s seat but it was empty.
I sighed in frustration
Declan has been absent in school for about a week and I was really worried…. I mean I was the one who made him angry , how I wish I never asked him about D2!
I walked over to my seat and as usual , ghostie was following behind me……
he is not in school again , what could be wrong with him? she asked but I ignored her
I sat down and brought out my physics book before placing my backpack gently on the tiled floor ………..
Opening the book , I went through my assignment to be sure I made no mistake…..
I nodded in satisfaction….
Sasha! a voice called and I looked up to meet Cory puppy eyes gaze ……
Can you please lend me your physics note? She pleaded and I grinned
Just simply tell me you want to dub from me and I will give it to you . I said with an eye roll
Fine! You are right . She agreed and i smirked……
picking up my book from the table , i handed it to her …..
Thanks. She muttered and ghostie scoffed
I turned sideways to look at her and met her angry gaze …..
What is wrong with you Sasha? Why did you give her your note? She asked with a frown
I glanced around the class to be sure no one was looking before answering her…..
I am trying to get close to her. I answered in whispers and she nodded slowly………
But she is … she tried to say but stopped when Declan walked into the class…..
Oh my gawd! Cutie is here. She squealed in delight and I sighed in relief
he finally came to school today!
He walked over to his seat and sat down quietly…..
What is wrong with him! I wondered,he looked so pale!
I watched Racheal walk up to him , she leaned over to whisper something to him and a faint smile escape his lips despite his dark mood…..
Are they dating? I wondered
And as if reading my mind , ghostie asked me the same question…….Are they dating?
I don’t know . I shrug and she scoffed ….
They better not be! She retorted angrily and I smiled lightly…..
Why does she dislike Racheal so much? I wondered……..
The class went quiet as soon as the physics teacher walked into the class……
Cory! are you done with my book? I asked in whispers but she shook her head negatively….
Please hurry up with it . I urged her to and she nodded slowly …….
So today , I will be teaching you on Capacitor and Capacitance. the teacher started…
But ma you gave us an assignment. a girl seated in front reminded and the whole class was rippled with angry murmurs…..
I stretched my neck to get a better view of the girl and saw it was the same chubby girl who confronted me about Seducing Declan….
I guess she is the “loosed mouth” of the class and I am going to use it to an advantage……..
Enough of the murmurings! the teacher barked and the class went silent again…….
I will take a look at it in the next class . She informed and began writing on the marker board ……
Leaning over , I was about tapping Cory when she turned back to face me ….
here. She handed me back my book with a smile …
Are you done? I asked to be sure and she nodded
Thanks so much friend. She said in appreciation and I smiled lightly…..
Friend! I doubt that , my only true friend is …..ghostie ….
I stared absentmindedly at the board as the teacher wrote on it , I was lost in thought wondering what could be wrong with Declan…..
Everything about him seems so off ……
I turned sideways to look at him , he was fiddling with his pen while staring at the board ……..
Are you alright? ghostie asked and I shook my head negatively
Are you worried about Declan? She asked again and I nodded slowly
Then try and talk to him . She suggested, I think he is bothered about something. She added and I exhaled deeply …….
I will do just that!……………………
So we will learn about the formulas in our next lesson. the teacher said and I sighed in relief …
The class was damn boring!
Picking up my backpack from the floor, I was about bringing out my English note when ghostie called me…
I nodded without looking at her
I think Declan is leaving the class. She informed and I looked up Just In time to see him walk out of the class…….
And without thinking, I stood up from my seat and ran after him ………
Declan! I called but he did not answer, instead he increased his walking pace and began to climb the staircase…..
What is wrong with him? ghostie asked and I bit my lips ….
We followed quietly behind him as he climbed up the flight of stairs to an empty hall…..
Declan! I called again and this time , he turned back to look at me ……
So it is you , what do you want? he asked coldly
I want to talk to you. I answered while moving closer to him and he smirked
Talk to me! Why? he asked staring intently at me…..
Can we go somewhere quiet? I asked looking around
he stared at me for a while and then led me to an empty classroom…..
I looked around the classroom, it was dusty and was also littered with cigarettes butts and ashes ……..
Jeez! I never knew there were smokers in this school ……….
So what do you want to talk to me about? he started
erm I just want to apologise to you. I stuttered and he smirked
Apologise! Why! Did you offend me ? he asked in a rush and I gave him a surprised look
I thought you were angry with me because i asked about ……
D2! he completed and I nodded……
but how the hell did you get to know that name ? he asked and I swallowed hard
Why can’t you just tell him the truth? ghostie who was standing beside me asked but I ignored her….
how did you? he repeated
erm she is eeerm my erm . I stuttered not knowing what to say and he smirked…….
You don’t even know her so why asking about her?he probed but I just stared blankly at him…..
Show him the necklace, it might help convince him. ghostie suggested and I nodded in agreement…
Unbuttoning the collar of my shirt , I was about to show him the golden necklace when I heard someone scoffed
I looked in the direction and saw Racheal standing at the entrance of the class…..
Racheal! I called in surprise
She looked at me and then at Declan..
What is going on here? She asked in a huff
Nothing. I answered and turned to go when Declan caught me by my arm……….
I turned to look at him in surprise and he smiled lightly
Aren’t you curious to know more about her? he asked and I arched my eyebrow……
Who are you talking about? I asked and he leaned forward to whisper in my ears ……
D2 is just her initials, her real name is Daphne. he corrected and then let go of me …….
I gave him a small smile before walking out of the class…..
What did he whisper in your ears? ghostie asked and I grinned….
I thought ghosts have super powers. I teased her….
Please Sasha just tell me . She pleaded and I smiled lightly….
Daphne ! Your name is Daphne……….
Why was she here with you ? Racheal asked as soon as we were alone
It is none of your business. I retorted and she scoffed…
Are you fucking her also? she half yelled and I smirked…..
Dipping my hands into my pocket , I pulled out a packet of cigarettes and a lighter…..
I lit up the cigarette and inhaled the smoke …..
So what are you waiting for, let us get started …..
I pulled her close to me and puff out the smoke on her……
She retched and coughed out ……:
You are crazy Declan! She cursed and I chuckled
Are you just aware of it now? I asked inhaling more of the smoke……
But who am I to you , am I still your girlfriend? She suddenly asked and I frowned…….
I have told you times without number not to ask me this question again……..
But why or don’t you love me again? She asked and I froze…..
We used to be the best couple in class but everything changed when that stupid Daphne Rui…… she tried to say but I cut her off….
Don’t ever call my sister stupid again . I warned and she sighed
Fine! I am sorry for calling her that but please let us go back to how we were . she pleaded and I scoffed
That can never happen!
but why? She asked with a wavering voice and I could tell she was about to cry ……
because I don’t love you. I answered with a low voice ………
Liar! You love me Declan, you are just too confused to know . she retorted angrily before storming out of the room……..
I watched her go and smirked
She is really crazy!
On getting to the class, I met only a few persons in the class
I glanced at the time , it was 11:00 am
Oh! It was time for short recess…..
Looking around the class, I spotted the chubby girl seated alone at the extreme corner of the class……:
I smirked and walked up to her ….
hi! I greeted the girl
she looked up at me and scoffed …..
What do you want? She asked coldly and I clutched my fist to stop myself from poking her flat nose…..
I faked a smile…..
I just want to apologise for yelling at you last week ………
She gave me a surprised look……..
And why are you doing all this? She asked
Because i want to be friends with you . I answered with a smile…….
Friends! but why! She asked and I glanced at ghostie before answering her …..:
You see erm I just like you. I stuttered and she smiled lightly…….
Quit the act and just tell me what you want? She said with a grin ….
What! I exclaimed softly and she nodded slowly
I bit my lips , I never knew she was so smart!
Fine! My seat! I want to know why it was abandoned, I want to know why they all reacted strangely when I sat on it ………
She looked around the class to make sure no one was eavesdropping before looking back at me….
You see I am quite new here also and I don’t really know what happened but I heard the seat is kinda cursed …
Cursed! I repeated in shock and she nodded….
I heard the owner of the seat ruined her own family and anyone who sits there will share in the same fate ……..
I stared at her in confusion
How is that possible?how can a girl ruin her own family?
This was the same question I asked also when I first heard about it ……. how can a girl ruin her own family?
Do you have an idea who the girl is? I asked and she nodded
her name is Daphne and she always wear a necklace with the wordings “D2” on it . She informed and I gasped in shock …….
Is this the reason why Cory looked shocked when I showed the necklace to her? or is there something more to it …….
I shifted my gaze to Daphne who also had a surprised look on her face ……
What exactly did she do? I wondered…….
