Pater said he had one last wish for me before he went to Simmibea. He had a strange request. He wanted me to sneak into the cemetary at 2:00 am. He said strange and wondrous things would happen. It gave me the creeps but I agreed to go.
I had no sooner entered the gates than I was transfixed by a floating white lady ghost. She came towards me and I realized I was frozen with fear.
Another orange ghost floated up to me. She explained that the white ghost had died of old age but that she had burned up when the old Sunset Valley theater had been set on fire by her boyfriend. He was angry when she broke up with him.
At last a blue ghost appeared in a top hat and all the other ghosts floated up to him.
Tragic Clown: I was drowned in a terrible shipwreck many, many years ago. I am the leader of the ghosts and if you stay with us tonight, I will grant you the one thing that you want more than anything else.
Suddenly, it was morning and in a swirling, misty haze the ghosts disappeared. I realized I had been in the cemetary for hours. I was terrified by my experience but I wanted to know, would the ghosts bring me what they said I wanted?
Meanwhile, things were getting serious between Xander and me. He never found out about my secret plot with Clark Sauer, so our relationship went on as if nothing had happened. He decided it was time for me to meet his father.
But Mr. Clavell died almost as soon as I met him. It was quite a shock. One minute he was standing in front of his house shaking my hand and the next he was dead, another ghost floating in front of me.
To make matters worse for Xander, he got arrested and had to spend time in jail. I tried to visit him but he was very unhappy. He told me he felt like his life was falling apart and he only knew one way to make everything better. He said he couldn’t wait to get out and show me.
Another day Xander took me far out into the country to one of the most beautiful sights I had every seen. It was a majestic waterfall. We sat on the banks of the water watching it and enjoying the solitude of such a lovely place.
I told Xander yes, I would be his wife. Now my life will change forever but it is a good change. I will have someone who loves me and maybe we can even have a family. Maybe that was all I wanted when I entrapped Clark…someone who would always love me. Xander seems to be that someone.
Is this the desire that the ghosts shared with me after I shared a night with them learning their secrets? Can true happiness be mine?
