  • Do you like my story?

    this is just a rough draft and i would love any comments or suggestions! thanks everybody!

    I used to have friends. But that all changed when she told me I wasn’t who I thought I was. I at the time had no idea what she was talking about. But as I got older I realized there was a possibility. My name is Grace Hoffman and (she) is my sister, the real Grace Hoffman.

    I was 12 years old when is started seeing her. I didn’t realize she was dead until I was 14. I’m now 15 and have been with the real Grace for 3 whole years. I never liked having her around until recently. I was scared at first, then confused, mad, and now I’m fine with it. This might have been why I lost all my friends. Yelling at invisible people. It’s just a possibility though.

    See, my parents died in a car crash when I was just 2 years old. So they couldn’t have told me about Grace. But I would have thought that my aunt who I now live with would’ve. She had the chance for 13 years. But boy was I wrong.

    Grace was their first child. But she died when she was 1 week old when she got pneumonia. Then they wanted another child, but to be just like the daughter they thought they would’ve had. So that’s how I got called Grace. While my birth certificate says Lilly Hoffman.

    The very first time I saw her was when I was sitting on my bed looking at old pictures of mom, dad, and me. I found one picture of her in it though. I had always thought it was just one of my friends or a cousin I didn’t know of. I now know that it was grace. But that was not the first time of actually seeing her. As in her standing there next to me.

    The first time I saw her ghost or spirit or whatever you want to call it was when I was at school. I was swinging with my friends when the empty swing next to me started to swing with no wind or anything. Everyone else started screaming that it was a ghost. But I saw her there and tried to explain to them that she was there. No one else could see her there and that is why I lost my friends because everyone thought I was crazy.

    I live in Chicago, Illinois and my real name I suppose is Lilly. My nickname though is psycho. That’s why I’m going to be going to a new school this year, Orangedale high school. A private school, ick! But I don’t really care cause school is not what I’m going to be studying. I’m going to find out everything about Grace my sister. This should be interesting.
