My Best Friend Amanda

This happened to me in 2010 when I was in 5th grade. I am one of the triplets. My name is Courtney. My sisters are Emily and alexa. We three look same on the difference is our habit. I am the second eldest while Emily is small. I usually don’t believe these ghost and scary stuff’s. My sister’s believed and get scared. They used to disturb me whole night after seeing a scary movie like scream 4.
One day my best friend passed away by food poisoning. I was sad the whole day. It was night 9:00 my sister’s were at a deep sleep and I didn’t want to disturb them so I went to the living room and sat and thinking about my best friend Amanda.
My friend Rebecca Angeline came rushing and knocking and screaming loudly. When I opened the door she ran inside and hid under the dining table in the dinning room. I shut the door and went to ask what happened. She said in a nervous way that she saw a man coming to her and said to wait and she got scared and thought my house was near and came running. Then I told her to stay at my home tonight. She said I bought clothes to stay at my home because the man came to her home and behind her for past 1 week and her bro’s were not at home. I said it is fine to stay at my home and she is always welcome.
I and Rebecca slept in my room. I had a dream that me and my best friends were on a picnic. Amanda told me that I and Rebecca are in danger and to be careful. Rebecca asked what kind of danger? Amanda said that a man will come to deliver something which we didn’t order will contain poison, be careful.
Be careful and there is more danger might be coming. Before we could ask she disappeared. I woke up and woke Rebecca and said the whole story. She said that she also got the very same dream. Which means really something is going to happen.
In the afternoon we heard some one knocking at the door we saw through the window, it was a delivery boy catching 2 box pizza’s in his hands. We remembered the dream we opened the door and said him we don’t want he refused us that it was for free. We asked him why dint he eat it. He got angry and threw it on us and ran away. We immediately went and took a shower. Then my best friend Amanda appeared and said
“Now you are safe be careful next time. The man who followed Rebecca was the man who delivered us pizzas. You just escaped for today what will you do for tomorrow? Goodbye, I will miss you guys”
Rebecca started to sob loudly. my sisters came rushing down and asked what happened? We said that Rebecca fell down. We dint say it to anyone but I wanted to share my feeling to some one so I posted it. I dint say it even to my sisters.
2 YEARS AGO……
Now in 2012...I and Rebecca are in same class now in 7th. We have the same girl called Amanda with same habit and our best friend too. I could not believe it. I and Rebecca made sure that we would never say even a word about our old Amanda but we feel sad. My sisters did not know what happened to old Amanda and forgot about the old Amanda. I hope we keep the new Amanda good and safe. If it was not the new generation of Amanda I would say
“May her soul rest in peace..."
