Marnie – Paranormal Short Story
My name is Julie and it is deserted nearby this late. It is late at night and I thought I would write down what happen yesterday and today. Marnie was hiding and waiting for me when I was out last time walking, which was just now. She is my friend and she had black sweatpants and a black hoodie. Which matched my white sweatpants and white hoodie. She had painted her face, mostly white and the rest red. It was her own idea, to be spooky dressed and scare a friend at a creepy place on Halloween.
It is Halloween today and my little sister prepares a potato gratin every Friday and Halloween which I bake. Grated cheese can melt together with the cream while they get heated and stirred, so she can have a lot of cheese without pieces of cheese when the potato gratin is finished.
Marnie lives by herself in a big dark house with a big yard with a few trees.
Today when I was walking home late at night Marnie came from the left. She was walking across a lawn, also a football field. Marnie had black eye shadow around and between the eyes. Afterwards we held hands because a street lamp flashes there. Marnie said:
“I have tried but my job is too difficult, it’s too complicated for me. I want to just go to Hollywood and become a movie star.”
I asked her: “Is it okay if I come with you?”
She said: “Yes”
We still live in L.A. and we love it here but we never become movie stars. Not yet anyway, or in a way we are. You can see us in the background in a super-famous movie so maybe you have seen us.
