“You wouldn’t think she’d been gone so long, would you? Sometimes, when I walk along the corridor, I fancy I hear her just behind me, that quick, light step. I couldn’t mistake it anywhere, not only in this room, but in all the rooms in the house. I can almost hear it now. Do you think the dead come back and watch the living?”

“I’m bored,” I said to Mary Margaret. Mary Margaret Blanchard is my best friend, and she spends almost every afternoon at my house. Her father is the only family she has, and he works really late.

Mary Margaret looked up from her homework and smiled. Everyone says that we look alike, even though I have long, blonde hair, and her hair is short and brown.
