That Night

The Night
Last night she sighted her; Emily. She plays with Emily every second night; after all Emily was her elder sister. Things to 6 year old Lisa always seems clear – her sister plays with her at night but when she’s up from sleep, she’s gone.

There is Something

She told her Mum how much she uses to have fun at nights with Emily. Her mother was stunned but drops the idea calling it Lisa’s imagination. She discussed it with her husband and had a good laugh but certainly at some place in her mind something was rambling.

But How?

She heard Lisa with someone; she went to see Lisa. What she saw made her numb. Shivers of fear went through her spine froze her legs, paused her heart and suppressed her voice.
It was her; Emily. Rachel’s elder daughter who died 3 months ago in a car accident.
