Mystic
By Jennette

    As I sat alone at my desk in the back of the room I stared out of the window.
 I didn't really have many friends.  I was only 17. Some people would think
that you'd have PLENTY of friends at that age, but that was different for me
since I was an orphan.  No one really wanted to be around me.  They'd all say
    "Look! It's that girl who "speaks" to ghosts."  Sounds stupid.  But being 17
and living in the year 2001 it wasn't easy to be the "only" one who has a
"strange" ability.  But I KNOW I could speak to them.  I felt there pain,
sorrow, madness, everything.  I would sit up in "my" room and just talk to
them.  They were the only ones who understood me.  But one.... one knew my
pain.  Loosing my mum only a short while ago by someone with a handgun cause  she wouldn't give out her money.
    My Dad, he left when I was only 3.  Mum didn't feel right raising me.  So she sent me to the orphanage.  All the older kids around my age didn't like talking to me.  They thought I was too weird.  But "He" Didn't.  He was always waiting for me at lunch.  He didn't care what the people thought of him.  He thought my "Ability" was something special. He could understand it cause he himself could do it.  So I wasn't alone.
    He was a lanky guy. Small framed but very handsome.  He had a kind of unibrow and beautiful hazel eyes.  Ones that would take you into another world.  Him and I talked constantly.  One day, he said he loved me.  But then I got a furious chill up my back.  That's when he fell into my arms.  A knife lodged
in his back and a ominous black figure standing above me.
    "WHAT'D YOU DO THAT FOR!? Why! He never did ANYTHING to you!"
    "Because. He was a freak.  Just like you are.  You'll join your "Boyfriend"
soon enough." I held the limp figure in my arms cradling his head in my hands speaking to him softly
    "Jay, Jason please stay with me.  Open your eyes, squeeze my hand PLEASE something!"  To my amazement he was still alive.  He looked up at me his eyes glazed over but still that bright Hazel.
    "He" says he's not taking me yet.  There not ready for me Jennette.  He's standing over us right now.   Behind you" That's when I felt his hand on my shoulder.  I could hear his voice go through my head at faster than the speed of light.
    "You'll be all right. I promise."
    "Who are you bloody talkin to you WITCH! He'll die in a matter of minutes! and YOU shall join him!" He laughed.  He laughed hard and low.  His voice felt like a knife.  I looked over at him.  His eyes a bright brown.  Holding the knife.  The knife that went into Jason.
    "I'LL GET YOU YA BURK!" I said to his face.  That's when he grabbed my arm and yanked me up away from Jason. I looked over at Jason laying there and
"Him" holding onto him gently saying it's all right speaking to him softly in
his Liverpudlian voice. "Lemme go! Stop it! Lay off me!"
    "Stupid girl, no one in this orphanage wants you!  Your here cause of yer
bloody mum and dad bein dead!  They never loved you either!
    "Yes they did! My parents loved me!  They told me I was special!  That I had
someone waiting for me later in life!"
    "Well, yer parents were stupid then too!" He then brings his hand over his head and slaps me across the face making me fall to the ground at his feet.  He then grabs my hair tightly pulling at it
    "NO STOP! STOP! YOUR HURTING ME! STOP LEMME GO!" That's when the Orphanage manager came out and saw what's been going on.
    "JOEL! LET HER GO!" She came running over and grabbed Joel by the arm twisting it behind his back making Joel scream out in pain. "Ya like that don'tcha?
    "No, Ma'am"
    "What?" She then twists it only a bit more harder making sure he's squirming and grovelling at her mercy "Mercy! MERCY!" That's when she lets him go and he falls to his knees crying holding his arm that she twisted violently I somehow get back up with a little help from "Him" and go back over to Jason to make sure he's still with me and I grab his hand in mine hoping I'm not too late
    "Jason, Jason if your still here squeeze my hand" Thankfully he does so and opens his eyes a bit looking at me his breathing heavy and somewhat laboured "Do.... don't leave me." I say in near tears. Just then I look up and I see a man in a black suit come running over and he kneels next to me
    "Jason, Jason luv. Please hang on."
    "Mrs. Symansky, get a doctor.  Hopefully, Jason'll be all right."
    "Right" So she runs off and goes to get a doctor leaving me with the man in
black and "him" above me.
    "Wh..... Who are you?" I said in a near tremble.
    "Dhani.  My dad just found out he had a second son from his first marriage."
    "You mean?" I look at Jason then back at Dhani and I just notice the
resemblance
    "Uh huh, He's my half brother. He looks ALOT like dad." I turn around and I then feel someone's arms go around me holding me when I look up and see "Him" staring at me
    "You! Your!?"
    "Yes, Jennette. I'm solid"
    "But? But How!"
    "I'm a ghost. I can do whatever I please whenever I please." That's when I started to cry uncontrollably in his arms I couldn't deal with all that just happened and I just cried.  I cried for what seemed like a lifetime till I heard the ambulance pull up.  "He" looked at me and lifted my chin up and looked at me with his dark brown eyes
    "I must go now Jenny.  I'll still be with you and be able to talk to you.  But
I must let you realize what's going to go on.  I'm always going to be your
guardian angel.  Please take care of Jason.  You and him are very special to
each other.  Don't EVER forget that." With that said I look at him not saying a word crying in his arms he puts one finger to my lips leans close to me and kisses me on my lips and then disappears.
     Needless to say I stood there dumbfounded forgetting about everything around me and I hear his voice again
    "Jennette, you're my sunshine.  I must thank you for understanding me and not
giving up when you were dealt bad cards in your life.  You've found your
soul mate and reunited him with his family.  He's the son of a dear friend of
mine.  Please make sure you go with Dhani.  You'll be fine Jennette.  I
promise.
    "But.... John! Don't go!"
    "I must my little princess..... I'm not leaving you permanently.  I'll always
be with you.  Your mum and dad would be proud of you Jennette."
    "I hope so.  You'll ALWAYS be in my heart John"
    "And you'll Always be in mine." With that he disappears and I'm left alone with Dhani and Jason so I go back to Jason holding his hand seeing him on the stretcher being put into the ambulance
    "Jennette, did he?"
    "Yes, He's still watching over us though Jason."
    "Good, I know he is. Dhani?"
    "Yes, Jason?"
    "Can Jennette come with us?" Dhani, looks over at me and smiles back at Jason
    "Sure she can.  I think Dad'll like her."
    "Gear" So the paramedics put Jason in the ambulance with me following him and Dhani behind me putting a hand on my shoulder
    "He'll be all right. Jennette.  He's like dad." I look at Dhani and Smile at him happily
    "I know." So with that Dhani Jason and Myself go to the hospital and Jason luckily recovers from the knife act. George Harrison gets a new son Jason.  And a year later Jason and I get Married and live happily.  But both of us never  forget about John and do talk to him but we also realize that he protects us making sure were safe and he brought us together.  Never leaving us!

The End
