EXCERPT (Unedited):Leaving my room, I stepped out into the hallway, looking both ways before stopping to stare at the open door to the attic. Goose bumps flared across my skin as I distinctly remembered closing the door after Seth and I had explored it. I was pretty sure no one had been up there since.
As if manipulated, my feet turned and moved toward the dark staircase, my heart pounding in my chest with every step. I briefly thought I should call my parents and have them come check with me, but when I tried to stop or open my mouth it was as if I had no control over myself.
Treading lightly, I made my way soundlessly up the wooden stairs, pausing at the top and looking around.

“Who are you?” Even as I took in her white blonde hair, porcelain features and pale full lips, I was shaking. I’d never seen a ghost before, and to be honest, I hadn’t even really known if they actually existed.
