PostSubject: A story excerpt thing I wrote that has no titlw   Tue 28 Jul - 0:27

I don't know when exactly I wrote this, but it was sometime in the last year. So, yeah, my writing...



Hello, my name is Gale. I like rainbows and can see dead people. Well, kinda, but not really. Apparently my Seer-esque powers are very weak, so I can only hear the voices of ghosts, not see them. So, scratch that last line. I can hear dead people.
Hearing dead people is not all it’s cracked up to be. Firstly, I can never tell whom it is I’m talking too. And if you were curious, dead people can’t remember their names. It’s part of the whole "dying" thing. Mute ghosts are obviously a problem. Secondly, hearing ghosts is not as cool as actually seeing them. No, seriously, it isn’t. No, I don’t know why!

Okay, a little history. My last name is Mayflower—that’s right, like the ship—and every member of our "prestigious" bloodline is a Seer, or people that can see ghosts. Or, well, except me, that is. What do you call a person who hears ghosts? A Hear? Thus I am kinda…exiled, I guess. I mean, not completely ignored, but I always got the crappiest presents, if you know what I mean.

Like my relatives, my parents don’t really know what to do with me either. They find it very problematic considering our house is full of ghosts, and I can hear them, sure, but if my mom wants to talk about something funny a specific ghost did I can’t understand her. It’s very uncomfortable when my dad is guffawing loudly and I just kinda sit there, nervous.

Thus our communication is limited. Well, okay, I at least give my parents credit for trying. But how do you think our relationship is when she has to explain about something funny a ghost did, which by this point isn’t even funny anymore. Annoying, right?

But besides this hurdle, I’m really like my parents. Or kinda like them. Okay, not at all like them. See, my mom and dad are what you would call beautiful people. I am what is called a late bloomer, or, well, ugly. Okay, maybe ugly is a little harsh. More like plain.

I’ll give you the run down. Brownish, perfectly straight, thin, straw colored hair with a stupid cowlick that never lays flat. Pale skin, because the outside has bugs (ew) and bullies (crikey!) with freckles that would not be as visible as they are if my skin was a few shades darker. Dull colored green eyes. Short, wimpy, I have all the muscle of a stick.

I attract attention anyway with my plainness. I really don’t know why, though that’s not to say I don’t enjoy it. So I dress in what my parents call a hippie fashion, though I don’t think so. You know, they might be onto something though. Beads in my hair, colorful shirts, faded jeans, flip flops and fake flowers behind my ear. And my sherlock glasses too, if I could ever find them.

But all of this and a bag of chips does not amount to the big thing, number one on the list of Things that are Wrong with Gale. Drumroll please. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, Gale Mayflower is….

Thank you, though I have lost my interest in continuing it....
