Prologue

No one in this world knows what happens when we die.

Maybe there’s a heaven, maybe we get reincarnated, maybe we wander the world for all eternity or maybe being dead is just the end.

Most people have pondered over this at least once in their lifetime.

Death is something we’re afraid of, simply because we don’t know what will happen afterwards.

When I was young it used to scare me as well, but for an entire different reason.

Ever since I was a little girl I knew that I could talk to the dead.

Earthbound spirits my grandmother called them.

They’re stuck here because they have unfinished business with the living and they come to me for help.

To any normal person I would be considered an insane person, as did my best friend when I told her. Well, I guess she’s not anymore.

After I told her, there wasn’t a day that went by without someone whispering the phrase

“I see dead people.” in my ear, now everyone knew my secret.

The rumours spread and eventually my parents heard it from the woman that lives across the street.

That’s why we’re now our way towards a small town called Forks.

Rumours like that would be bad for their reputation or so they told me.
My guess is that they didn't want everyone to know that their daughter is a freak of nature.

My mom looked at me from the passenger’s seat, “We’re doing this for you, Caitlynn. Forks is a small town maybe it’ll be easier for your problem.”: she said looking over to my dad who was driving, who gave a small nod.

My problem, that’s how she always called them not considering that she used to be able to see them as well.

Mom always hated her gift, saying that it wasn’t real and then one day she couldn’t see them anymore. It broke my grandmother’s heart that mom didn’t want to help the earthbound spirits.

Thinking about grandma was hard for me. She passed away about a year ago, I wasn't there when it happened but before she crossed over she visited me.
I didn't leave my room for a week after that.
Eventually I decided I needed to help more spirits, because that's what she would have wanted.

I let out a sigh and continued to look out of the window, blurs of green passed as my dad sped towards our new home.

Tomorrow I would be starting school here and already I promised myself that I will tell no one about my gift.
I will still help spirits crossover but I'll try to be discreet.
No more talking to them in public places, nothing looks stranger then a teenager having an argument with thin air.

I closed my eyes and let sleep comsume me.
Oblivious to the fact that someone had foreseen my arrival.
Oblivious to the fact that I'd meet stranger persons than me.
Oblivious to the fact that in this little town my life would change completely.
