Finally my friend Ron has been extremely nice enough to edit my stuff for me. All rights to this story are reserved by me.
Also Georgia ‘ s story is just a working title for now and the story for now is in parts not pages.
Georgia ‘ s Story part 1
Her name was Georgia, Georgia Reign. And this is the story of her extraordinary life, and the extraordinary unlife of her ghostly comrade.
She’s a woman who knows how to handle herself in any situation. Her penchant for knives and sharp objects has gotten her out of more than one life or death situation. The knives she keeps strapped to her thigh each have a story to tell. Each blade has saved a life. Her hair is always pinned in a stylish bun, held in place by two sharpened ceremonial jade chopsticks. Her weapons of choice should she be unable to reach her blades, when her hair drops, so do her enemies.
In the “real” world people only believe in what they can see. Man will reject what he cannot understand and is afraid of what he cannot see. When an oracle is born they break through that veil and see the world and time for what it truly is, not a set thread, but a river that flows in all directions. Man rejects the oracles, they are locked away when all they want to do is help.
Georgia had to learn to hide her gifts out of necessity, which was way easier to do before the vampires and ghosts decided to come out from under the proverbial bed and say hi.
On that day the world changed for Georgia, she could see the monsters that go bump in the night. Georgia decided she had to be ready to bump back. You can only hide who and what you are for so long before fate forces you to face your fears and be yourself.
How does a person end up with a ghost orb for a sidekick you might ask? Well it’s kinda easy when they notice you can actually see them, I guess I want to say he just followed me home one night but that probably sounds too easy, even if it is the truth. Near as I can tell he was tired of being alone and must think I am as good of company as any.” They talk through very simple Morse code. And before you ask Yes, she gave him her best “Your free, Go to the light” Schick with no such luck.
It took a long time but she managed to learn that his name was James, he doesn’t remember his last name. He claimed to have died in the civil war, and then afterwards claimed to be a cowboy. Maybe he’s just making up stories to amuse himself with. “I am sure he has been dead long enough to shadow a few humans and pick up their stories along the way…” Georgia figured it must be like how the living watch TV. Each person must be like a different channel for him. “The one thing that never changes in our games of trying to figure out his past is his connection to his name, it’s always James.” The purple coloring of his gaseous form is a mystery too. Maybe it was his favorite color. Maybe it’s just the way the eye perceives the light of the soul.
“I keep telling him to move on, to go into the light and all that.” Georgia gestured to the ghost. “But he doesn’t listen. I’m just hoping some day I can help him. In the end though, I’m happy he’s with me. You’d be surprised how handy it is to have a ghost for a best friend.”
