Chuck’s New Car

 
Tommy Cub and Sammy Turtle were both freezing their butts. 
While waiting for Tommy’s bother Chuck, to pick them up from hockey practice 
“That’s it! If he isn’t here in the next five minutes, 
 I ‘m calling my mom to pick us up.” Tommy whined. 
 Sammy poked his head out of his shell and answered 
“Why don’t you just call her now?” 
 Before we both turn into big ice cubes.” 
Tommy was about to answer him back when a loud car horn interrupted. 
They both turned their heads to see where it came from 
Parked across the street was a black T-bird, with dark tainted windows 
“Hey!” Losers, are you coming or you just going to stand there all day?” 
A voice yelled out from the open window 
“Chuck?” Tommy asked once they crossed the street 
“The one and only!” So how do you like my new baby?” 
He asked them with a big smile on his face 
“Sweet, but where did you get it from? And what happened to your old car?” 
 Sammy answered him 
“Poor Beasty, has been giving me problems for a while now, 
 But she finally conked out on the way out here.” Chuck began 
“You named your car Beasty?” Tommy frowned. 
Chuck just ignored him and continued 
“Any ways, 
 She conked out right in front of this house with a big car for sale sign posted in its front yard. 
 Then after talking to this creepy old dude, 
 Who to me seemed that he couldn’t wait to get rid of the car.” 
“Maybe, there’s something wrong with it, it could be a lemon?” Sammy shrugged 
“That’s what I thought too. 
Especially since he was to me acted so nervous and when I told him that 
I didn’t have much money, just a few bucks in the bank, and old Beasty. 
 He just shrugged then said that was fine.” Chuck told them 
“Oh, he sold you a lemon.” Both Tommy and Sammy agreed 
“And again, that’s what I kept telling him, that there’s has to be something wrong with it. 
It was just a way to easy sell” 
 But he swore that there was nothing wrong with it, he was about to start a new job out of the country” 
“And needed to get rid of most of his stuff as quickly as possible before he’s due to start working.” 
 Chuck explained 
“It’s a cool car Chuck, I just hope for your sakes he told you the truth.” Tommy told him 
“Me too. 
I’m going to have dad take it down to the shop for a check over as soon as we get home. 
 I just hope that I didn’t give up Beasty, for a lemon.” Chuck shrugged 
 
Later that night Tommy went to get his book bag out of Chuck’s car, which he forgot to do earlier. 
 He was about to step out of the car but the door wouldn’t open 
“Oh, great the stupid door is stuck or something. 
 How I’m going to get out of here now?” 
 He thought to himself. 
He started pulling harder on the door handle still it wouldn’t open 
“Maybe, if I honk the horn loud enough it’d get Chuck’s attention. 
 And he’ll come and let me out.” 
 

Tommy was just about to start banging on the horn. 
 When he could’ve swore that a faint sound of girl laughing was coming out of the radio 
“I’ve to get out of this car, now I’m hearing things.” Tommy was about to bang on the horn when the car door suddenly opened 
“Whoa, now that was strange.” 
 Tommy muttered to himself as he quickly grabbed his book bag. 
He was about to run inside the house to tell 
 Chuck all about it when he bumped in to a beautiful fox with big blue eyes 
“Oh, hi! Sorry, I didn’t see you standing there.” 
“Umm, I was just walking by, when I saw you banging against the door. 
 And came over to see if you were okay or if I could help in some way?” 
 The fox shyly mumbled 
“Oh, you saw that huh?” 
 My brother just brought this car and I guess the doors get stuck or something.” 
 Tommy shrugged 
“Well, I’m glad that you’re okay, I just moved down the block. 
My name is Carrie.” She smiled 
“Nice, to meet you. I’m Tommy and — 
 

“Hey!” Lame brain!” Who are you talking to?” 
 A voice from behind Tommy cried out. 
Tommy turned around to see that his brother was standing right behind him smirking 
“Carrie, she just moved here she came to see if I was okay, since I got locked inside your car — “ 
Tommy began 
“And what were you doing inside my car without my permission?” Chuck growled 
“I forgot my book bag and when I tried to get out, the door got stuck. 
 I was going to start knocking on the horn, when Carrie came around.” Tommy answered” 
“I see. 
Okay, listen whenever you finish talking to your little invisible friend, mom wants you inside. 
Dinner’s ready, and for your sake” 
“You and your little invisible friend better keep your little paws off my new baby.” 
Chuck smirked then left before Tommy had a chance to answer him back 
 

The next afternoon Sammy and Tommy were playing video games in Tommy’s living room 
“Tommy, if you could stop blowing up the galaxy for a second. 
 And see if I left my cell phone charger inside of Chuck’s car.” 
 A voice yelled from inside the kitchen 
“Okay mom!” Tommy yelled back 
 

“Alright Sammy, make sure that you keep the door open. 
 I don’t want to get suck in there again.” Tommy told him 
“Okay, no problem.” Sammy smiled. A few minutes later Sammy cried out 
“Hey, Tommy, did you find it yet?” 
Tommy poked his head up from the back seat 
“Nope, I bet she didn’t even lose it in here. 
 She’s always losing it and it always shows up some place else” 
 Besides the place she claims she lost it at.” 
Tommy laughed. 
 Sammy was about to answer him back when he suddenly cried out 
 

“Whoa!” Watch it!” 
“Oh great dude! You just close the door. 
 I just hope you didn’t get us locked up in here.” Tommy frowned 
“I didn’t. Something just pushed me in.” Sammy frowned.” 
“Right, you probably just lost your balance or something.” 
 Tommy smirked. 
Sammy was about to answer him back but instead he asked 
“What was that noise?” 
“What noise?” 
“Listen, it sounded like a car starting.” Sammy told him 
“Sammy, how can a car start without having the key inside of it?” 
 Tommy frowned. And before Sammy had a chance to answer 
 

A faint sound of laughter floated out of the car radio 
 As the car suddenly shifted into drive and shot down Tommy’s driveway 
“Don’t just sit there Sammy, do something!” Tommy cried out 
“Me?” Why don’t you do something hot-shot!” 
 Sammy yelled back. 
 As the car bolted forwards heading towards the hill 
“I’m trying!” Tommy cried out as he tried pumping on the brakes. 
But the car didn’t slow down. 
 

 He grabbed a hold of the steering wheel and spun as hard as he could causing the car to crash into a tree 
“Wow! Chuck’s going to kill you, when he sees this.” 
 Sammy whistled once they were both outside the car looking at the damage 
 

Later on that night Sammy called to check if Tommy was still alive 
“Well, if you call being grounded until you’re a billion years old. 
Then I’m just fine, thanks, for asking.” Tommy sighed 
“Oh wow!” 
 But did you tell them how we got locked in. or the car just started on its own — 
“Sammy began 
“Yah, yah,” Tommy interrupted. 
“But of course they didn’t believe any of it. 
They were too busy yelling that I was in enough trouble” 
 To make up some stupid car ghost stories.” 
 

“Thomas!” You best not be on your phone young cub!” A voice cried out 
“Umm, I better go before I get grounded for another billion years. 
 I’ll see you tomorrow at lunch.” Tommy quickly whispered before he hung up 
 

“It’s that new girl!” Tommy announced during lunch the next day 
“Huh? What new girl?” Sammy frowned 
“Carrie, the one who I told you about the first time that. 
 I got stuck inside of Chuck’s stupid car” 
 And yesterday before we went back to the house. 
I could’ve sworn that I saw her hiding behind a tree, just staring at us.” 
Tommy explained. 
 “It’s kina of weird that she has only shown up when something goes wrong with the car, 
 Don’t you think?” 
 He added 
“Well, yah kina of. Where did you say that she came from again?” Sammy asked 
“She didn’t. 
 All I know is that according to her she just moved to the house down the block from me. 
 A few days ago.” Tommy shrugged 
“Down the block? Isn’t that the old Walker house?” 
 Now that’s weird since that house has been empty for years.” 
 I can’t believe that they’d move into that old dump.” Sammy frowned 
“Well, there’s only one way to find out.” Tommy suggested 
 

A few hours later after school 
“Are you sure this is the right house?” Sammy asked 
“Yes, Sammy, for the million time it is!” 
 You, yourself said it’s the only house down my block that has been empty for years.” 
 Tommy frowned 
“Well it still looks empty and even creepier.” Sammy whined 
“Let’s just get this over with, okay?” Tommy sighed. 
 They slowly made their way up the rotting porch steps onto the front porch 
 Which was covered with old news papers 
Tommy knocked on the door but there was no answer 
“Oh, well, it looks like she isn’t home.” Sammy shrugged 
“Not so fast.” Tommy answered him before he knocked on the door again a little louder 
Causing the door to open slightly 
“Hello?” 
“Whoa!” All I can see is just a bunch of packed boxes.” Tommy whispered 
“Great, so can we go now?” before we’re asked what we’re doing here.” 
 Sammy smirked 
“And what are you doing here?” A voice from behind asked. 
 

 They turned around and saw Carrie was there staring at them 
“Sorry, but we knocked. Besides we don’t believe that you even live here. 
We believe that you’re the reason why Chuck’s car is acting so weird” Isn’t that right Sammy.” 
Tommy accused her 
“Huh?” I guess. But what’s up with all this we stuff.” Sammy shrugged. 
Carrie only sighed before she answered 
“I’m sorry that I lied to you Tommy,” 
“There!” You see she just admit it!” Tommy cried out 
“Tommy, let her finish.” Sammy scowled him 
“The truth is that my dad, even though 
 I begged him not to sell the car to your brother, he did it anyway” She began 
“What’s wrong with it?” Tommy asked 
“My sister, well she was don’t get me wrong I love my sister. 
But ever since my parents split up she became bitter” 
“She blamed my dad, 
 For the split claimed that my mom left cause all he cared about was that car. 
 So one night she planned to teach him a lesson 
“She took it for a joy ride, lost control of it and crash the car into a tree at full speed” 
 She wasn’t wearing her seat belt and the impact was so hard that she flew out the window.” 
 Carrie answered him 
“Oh wow, sorry.” Both Tommy and Sammy mumbled 
 

“After that things went from bad to worst. 
 My parents couldn’t stop blaming each other for the accident” 
 And act like I don’t even exist, and every time my dad tries to sell the car 
“They always bring it back threating to sue him, 
 Because he fail to tell him that the car’s a hazard and try to kill them. 
But I know it’s the spirit of my sister still trying to hurt dad for all that happen” 
 I’ve tried telling him, but he doesn’t believe me. 
 I’m scared that if I don’t do something that one day. 
 She’s going to really hurt my dad or worst” 
 If I don’t do something about it but I need your help in doing so.” 
 She added. Tommy and Sammy stared at each other for a second 
“I really hate it that you thought that you had to lie to me. 
 Friends don’t lie to each other. But after everything you just told us, 
I don’t see how we can say no.” Tommy smiled 
“Maybe, he can’t see but help you how exactly?” Sammy frowned 
“Help me get rid of my sister, before like I said before really hurts some body. 
And my dad goes to jail because of it.” Carrie answered him 
“Come on, I think of someone who can help us.” Tommy added 
 

Later that day they were all gathered inside of Vicky’s Dragonfly bedroom 
“Wow!” 
 From what you’ve told me it seems that your sister 
 Is looking for revenge for not feeling or beginning loved.” 
 Vicky was telling them 
“But she was!” Carrie cried out 
“I guess, but maybe she never believed, or felt that was true unless 
She was getting in trouble.” 
 But I’ve idea that hopefully will help all you guys, out.” Vicky suggested 
 

Shortly afterwards they were sitting inside of Chuck’s car calling out for Carrie’s sister 
“This is dumb, and it’s not working we should just go home.” 
 Sammy whined. 
And before any of them could reply the inside of the car got really cold 
“Gross!” What’s that smell?” 
“Well, well look who’s finally came to visit. Miss me much sister dear?” 
From the driver’s seat they all stared at the hideous ghoul that was once Carrie’s sister 
“I came to talk to you I want to-“Carrie began 
“You want nothing!” 
 

The sound of the car’s engine roaring as it began to shot forward interrupted 
“Oh great.” Tommy thought to himself before crying out 
“Hold on!” 
“You’ve been going around without any worries all this time, and have forgotten all about me! 
You, just like mom and dad never cared about me!” Carrie’s sister cried out 
“That’s not true!” I always tried to protect you, tried to be by your side. 
 But you were always so angry with everything that was happening around you” 
 You were always so filled with hate that you would always push me away.” Carrie sobbed 
“Lair!” but it doesn’t matter since now you and your little friends are 
Going to be stuck with me, forever!” Carrie’s sister screamed. 
 

As the car at full speed headed back to Carrie’s house 
“Oh no!” 
 She’s going to crash the car into the same tree she did the day she died!” Carrie cried 
“Not if I can help it!” 
 Quick Sammy, when I count to three pump on the brakes as hard as you can” Vicky, 
 I need you to do the same with the hand brakes.” Tommy instructed 
“Okay, but what are you going to so?” Sammy asked in a nervous tone of voice 
“Watch!” 
Tommy quickly grabbed the steering wheel then with all his strength. 
 He guided the car away from the big oak tree 
“Okay now!” 
“Nooo!” A loud angry voice cried out from inside the car 
 As seconds later the car suddenly came to a sketching halt 
“No, no!” Now I’m stuck here alone — “ 
The voice shrieked before she began to fade away 
Until there was nothing left expect but a gooey puddle of water 
 
And before any of them could talk the car door swung open 
And a pair of paws pulled them out of the car 
“Are you kids, alright?” What in the world happened?” 
“Yah, I think so.” Tommy answered 
Then they took turns in telling what happened 
“But Carrie, she’s the real hero she distracted her sister long enough. 
 So we could stop the car before it crashed.” Tommy told him 
“Yah, thanks to her, she saved our lives — . 
But where did she disappear to?” Sammy added. 
 

Tommy turned around and frowned 
“What you mean she was right here.” 
“Kids, I’m afraid you’re all a bit confused. 
I hate to tell you all this but my daughter Jill, 
 Wasn’t the only one who was in that car that day” 
“You see my wife and I both made a lot of mistakes, 
 Our biggest mistake was to never notice how all our fighting, 
Trying to get at each was affecting our girls 
“I never stop blaming myself for begin so selfish.” Carrie’s dad told them 
“That’s what she told us, she tried to warn you that something bad was going to happen. 
But you never listened.” Vicky answered 
“I just wish that I could go back in time and tell them how sorry I am, 
 How much I miss them.” He sobbed 
“I think Carrie, knows that, that’s why she kept coming back to warn you, 
 To protect you from her sister’s revenge against you” 
She finally found a way to talk to her sister and 
 Help them cross over without hurting anyone” 
“I’ve feeling that they’re in peace now and have learned how to forgive.” 
 Vicky added smiling. Carrie’s dad sadly smiled 
“Thank you.” 
 

Before going back inside the house to call their parents 
“Wow!” I still can’t believe what just happened, Carrie, was really a ghost.” 
 Sammy said shaking his head 
“Yah, me neither. 
 I guess we’ll never really understand what happened, 
 But I do know is that the next time Chuck buys a new car. 
 I’ll be riding the bus instead!” Tommy laughed
