Sleepovers are supposed to be fun. 

Instead, Elena found herself trapped with her two besties, who insisted on a pseudo-dinner party. She’d rather watch a documentary or something.

The girls dimmed the lights.

“Who is the extra placement for?”

“Your future husband.”

“Oh, please.”

Elena rolled her eyes. 

“You two need to stop reading romance.”

Jenny and Cassie shrugged and giggled as they sat down.

The clock on the wall ticked.

This is stupid.

Elena stood up.

Footsteps echoed down the stairs.

Elena froze. They were alone in the house.

“Sorry, I’m late.”

The ghostly figure took his place at the table.

They really need to stop reading paranormal romance.
