Excerpt:

"They're coming for you. I heard them talking...” 

Damn. Apparently, her friendly apparition decided to follow her home. Well, this  just sucked. Not only did the ghost have to follow her, it had to make her worry about being jumped on the way home.  Abby  shook  off  the  icy  frost  that  tickled  her skin  as  it  raced  up  her  body.  The  cold  made every inch of her body feel as if it were on the verge of some kind of panic attack. And while she wanted to brush the ghost aside, the voice had never been wrong. The spirit had only started talking to her before school started this year, but so far, it seemed to be looking out for her.

Sure enough. “Where you heading, Abby Cadabby?” 

Referring to her as a character from Sesame Street did not phase her in the least. Heck, if she were truly some spritely muppet fairy, she'd wave her magic wand and wish herself away from here in  a  heartbeat.  Too  bad  she  left  her  fairy  dust  at  home  today.  Abby  refused  to  take  their  bait. Instead, she continued to walk down the sidewalk, her eyes shuttered against the catcalls which were sure to follow. 

“Hey girls, let's show her our favorite spot.” 

This time Abby turned her head to look at the girls. Meghan's cronies linked their arms in hers and  held  her  tight  so  she  couldn’t  get  away  from  them.  Abby's  heart  started  to  beat  in her throat, and she thought for a moment the fear creeping up her spine was going to make her lose what little she had eaten today. 

“I told you. You should have run.” Run? What good would that do? Somehow the brat pack always found her. Shrinking into herself, Abby wished she could find her voice, but as usual, it seemed lost the  moment  Meghan  entered  the  room.  What  was  it  about  a  bully  that  rendered  one  so  useless? Abby  liked  to  think  it  was  because  Meghan  was  surrounded  by  her  cronies,  but  who  was  she kidding? If it had been Meghan alone, she would have been too frightened to move. This was how she had been conditioned to think over the years.
