Julie Tells Paul Her Secret
Julie is lying on the shore of the lake. All the people from the youth hostel are standing around, watching her. Paul is kneeling next to his sister.
“Julie, are you all right? Julie, say something!” he is saying.
Julie turns her head. Water comes out of her mouth.
“Where am I? Am I alive?” she asks. She hears another voice. Sally is talking to her. She is angry. “Yes, you are. You almost drowned in the lake! she says. “You didn’t follow the safety rules, Julie. Anna says you were in the boat alone. You are lucky to be alive! You’re a very lucky girl.”
Paul helps his sister to sit up. “Julie, are you okay?”
“Yes, but ‘I’m very tired,” she replies.
“Let’s go and get some hot tea,” says Paul.
He puts a blanket around Julie’s shoulders. She stands up slowly and looks around. She sees Anna standing near Sally. She rubs her eyes and looks again. Anna isn’t a ghost! She is there! Anna is staring at Julie. She has the same strange smile on her face.
Julie doesn’t smile at Anna. She walks away from her.
“Come on, Paul,” she says. “We must get away from that girl.”
They go to the kitchen. “Why are you angry with Anna?” asks Paul. “She’s a good person. She saved your life!”
“Paul, I have to talk to you. Something very strange is happening. Anna isn’t… well, she isn’t a real person…”
“What are you talking about?” says her brother.
“She isn’t real! She’s a ghost!” shouts Julie.
“Julie, are you mad? Anna helped you. You are alive because of Anna! You’re upset. You need to sleep.”
“No, Paul! Believe me! Anna is a ghost. She made the boat tip over, she has some strange power. She is the ghost of Coniston Water!” cries Julie.
“Julie, listen. Why don’t you go to your room now and sleep?” says Paul after a moment.
“I can’t go back there, Paul! I want to leave Holly How tonight!” says Julie, trembling. Her brother sees that she is really frightened.
“Okay, Julie, why don’t you go and see the hostel manager? Maybe she can help,” he says.
“Okay,” says Julie.
Julie walks down to the lake. She looks out at the water. She thinks, “What am I going to do? Paul doesn’t believe me. I can’t go back to the room. Anna wants me to go back. I have to leave Holly How. I want to go home - tonight.”
She hears someone calling her name quietly. She turns round. Anna is standing next to her. She looks at Julie and says, “Julie, do you know who I am?”
“Yes, you are the girl who died at the lake a long time ago,” replies Julie.
“Yes,” says Anna. She looks into Julie’s eyes. “Please come with me. I want to show you something.”
The two girls start to walk towards the boats. Suddenly Paul arrives. He calls his sister. “Julie, Julie. Where are you?”
Julie replies, “I’m here. Near the boats.”
Paul runs to Julie and takes her by the hand. “What are you doing here?” Julie says, “I don’t know. Anna wants to show me something.” “Anna? What do you mean?” says Paul. “Anna isn’t here.”
Julie looks around, but Anna isn’t there.
“Oh, Paul! She was here! Anna was here.”
Paul replies, “It’s the accident, Julie. Your mind is playing tricks on you. You need to sleep.”
Julie feels very tired. “All right, Paul,” she says.
They go back to her room. Julie says good night and walks through the door.
“Julie!” It is Anna. She is standing in front of her.
