Lars has a theory why he’s remained earthbound…
Meet the Characters and other hauntingly good fun!
Cecilia’s ghost father has followed her home.
Cecilia’s ghost father appears in her kitchen. She’s a bit startled to see him but recovers quickly to ask him how he was able to appear in her house when he’s never done so before. His theory is that she brought his journal home and it made it easy for him to follow her.
In this scene, it doesn’t read exactly how it does in the book. A few sentences have been tweaked to meet the 10 sentence limit. This is in Cecilia’s POV. Lars explains how time is different for him than it is for her.
Cecilia is overwhelmed from meeting her father, who just so happens to be a ghost. She did what any other person might do. She fled.
In this snippet she’s had time to think about her hasty retreat.
Cecilia is overwhelmed by the conversation she’s been having with her father who has been dead for 23 years.
Setup for this snippet with a recap from last week: Her father was offended that she would suggest that he purposely drove his truck off the pier.
Cecilia is still trying to accept she’s talking to her father’s ghost. Their conversation is a bit awkward…
Cecilia asked her ghost father how he was able to knock the journal off the desk but he couldn’t hug her.
Cecilia realizes her father is truly a ghost and though he appears solid, he is not. She tried to hug him but ended up walking right through him. Definitely a chilling experience in every way. Now she’s questioning if any of it is real.
