Ichabod Crane: Captive SoulThe flaming pumpkin struck Ichabod Crane with surprising force. Next thing the schoolmaster knew, he was falling backward off his horse and quickly blacked out. Before long, Ichabod awoke in the same spot. But he was standing instead of laying on the ground. He glanced around, searching for Gunpowder the horse. Alas, the animal was nowhere to be seen.
Then Ichabod noticed his hat laying next to the shattered pumpkin. He knelt and tried to pick it up, but to the schoolmaster’s horror his hand passed right through the hat! Ichabod then attempted to pick up the shattered pumpkin bits, but with the same result. Not sure what to do, he ran across the bridge. It wasn’t until after he arrived on the other side, that Ichabod realized his footsteps didn’t make any noise! He then walked up to the brook and looked in the water. To the poor fellow’s terror, he had no reflection! It was still dark
Ghost Girl's BeginningIn a town called Chareden, there lived a teen girl named Miriam Cassman. In her early childhood, Miriam contracted a high fever and came close to death. Ever since that close call, Miriam Cassman was able to see and speak to ghosts. She really liked this ability. Ghosts understood her better than most of her fellow mortals, and Miriam realized that a majority of ghosts aren’t scary at all, or at least don’t intend to be. Sure, certain ghosts are troublemakers. But then again, so are some mortals.
What Miriam was particularly glad about was that she met Keith Tuck, her second cousin who died in the Vietnam War. They had a very tight bond, and Keith gave Miriam comfort, support, and encouragement countless times.
One day after she got her license and a car, Miriam drove to the Chareden Cemetery to take a walk. She parked close to the gate, then began her stroll. Before long, Miriam found a headstone with a strange, teal-colored substance on it. She bent down and ran her finge
Ghost Girl and the Evil FairyIt was a beautiful day in the town of Chareden. Miriam Cassman was at the beach in the local Red Oak State Park. Not only was she swimming, but Miriam was also chatting and having a picnic with Bethany Bergman. Bethany was one of Miriam’s closest mortal friends. She was always an excellent listener, very understanding, and supportive. Bethany even knew of Miriam’s ability to see and speak to ghosts, and was completely okay with it, and thought it was neat. Unlike a certain couple of other “well-meaning” people, Bertha Sellers and Blake Stevens, whom jumped to conclusions and thought Miriam was schizophrenic. Luckily, a few other supporters, including Bethany Bergman, saw no problem with this and realized it was great for her.
When the two were getting ready to leave, Miriam began to sense a dark, sinister presence nearby. While Bethany was loading her things in her car, Miriam went invisible, and then took flight,
Ghost Girl Meets an Ancient EgyptianChareden had a small museum about its history. One day, a large group of curators and archaeologists made a stop in Chareden and dropped off ancient artifacts at the museum. They were merely making a stop along their way to a much larger museum, and decided to take a break in Chareden and continue on the next day. The town’s residents were allowed to go and take a look at these artifacts. One of those ancient items was a stone Egyptian sarcophagus. It was carved with the decedent’s image, which strangely had been partially defaced. The decedent’s name had also been vandalized. Both flaws appeared to have been inflicted in ancient times. But why?
According to a couple of the archaeologists, a married couple named Richard and Eva Conner, the biggest possibility was that the deceased committed a heinous crime while alive, and as punishment an attempt was made to prevent the soul from having an enjoyable afterlife.
