TITLE: THE GHOST SEER
GENRE: YA Paranormal Romance
I'm on my way to meet a ghost.
Oh, yeah. I'm not exactly your run-of-the-mill sixteen-year-old. I see ghosts. You do, too, but you just don't know it. Ghosts appear to be normal, living, to everyone except seers, people like me.
Anyway, I've got an interesting relationship with the ghost I'm meeting. PSAT analogy time: ex-con is to parole officer as Kayley is to ghost Gregory. And my parole-officer-like ghost can throw temper tantrums with the best of them. There's a reason I'm meeting him at Disneyland.
I take the Harbor Boulevard exit and park in the Downtown Disney lot. It'll be crowded at Disneyland, what with it being a Saturday and the summer, but it's better for us if it's crowded. When there's a crowd, no one pays attention to anyone.
I grab my camera (all the better for my cover) and hop out of my lime green VW bug. I beep the doors locked and then text Gregory:
just parked car
I get a text back:
meet me same place as last time. hurry -- perv keeps looking at me.
I start sprinting, drawing startled glances from the fanny pack and sun-visor set milling about in the parking lot. My feet pound the pavement and I wish I'd worn sneakers instead of sandals. I race up Harbor Boulevard, side-swiping cheerful, chatting families, and almost knocking over a toddler in my haste to get to Gregory.
Gregory, like all ghosts, has every limitation of his human body.
