Chapter Two part two
“Hey there Kitten! I didn’t know ya’ll were in town.” Yes, my father knew my nickname too, even though he died when I was very young. Mother writes him letters for me to give to him, so he doesn’t miss out on me growing up. “Hey dad. We just got here this evening. One of mom’s old buddies passed away. So she wanted to pay respect and all that. Which reminds me, he should be here. Dad you might have to help him since he’s new.”
“Okay, what’s his name? And tell your mom I’m sorry to hear he passed.”
“Um…I don’t really know his first name. It’s Reise. He has a grandson named Leon. We’re letting him live with us since he has no one left. Hey maybe his parents are here too!” I scanned the yard for anyone resembling Leon, only to find none. It was just me and Dad. The others must’ve left to give us privacy. I loved how Dad looked. He was still young, his clothes plain and simple. “Hmm…maybe they are. So this Leon, he’s your age, isn’t he?”
“Yeah, how’d you know?”
“Your mother mentioned him in her last letter. Oh and here’s mine to give her. Give her a kiss and a hug for me, will you? Bless her heart she’s been so stressed.”
It’s amazing how even when separated by death two can still love each other as if they were together. They really loved each other, and they had something no other couples do. They had a daughter who could relay messages to and from the dead. Not to mention all the other stuff I can do. So maybe it is possible for them to still care for each other very much, although Mother can’t see him.
“I will Dad.”
He handed me the letter, which was in a ghostly state as well. When I leave here it will become normal paper so mom can read it. It’s one of many enchantments. Her sister, my Aunt Rose, is a witch. Aunt Rose thought it’d be good to have charmed paper for Mom and Dad so they could still communicate.
“Shouldn’t you be resting up Krista?”
“Shouldn’t you be finished with that book by now? Ahaha I’m just kidding dad. Yeah, I am really tired, but I wanted to come visit you before we go home tomorrow.”
“Well thanks kitten. But you should go get some sleep. You’re still a growing kid.”
I sighed and agreed. He gave me a hug goodbye and watched as I flew off once more into the night sky.
