"Psst", said Mallory, "Over here!"
Mallory was under the bushes near the tent that Jen and I shared with
two other girls. I ducked under the bushes where Jen, and the six other girls
were. We were all dressed in the same white gown. The gowns looked like ones a
ghost might wear. Then I remembered what Mallory had said! At night you and I
can dress up like ghost and scare your troop. I couldn't believe I was doing
it! I kept thinking that we would get caught.
I would have to think fast. Maybe I could ask Mallory to.... No, she
wouldn't listen. Maybe.... "Psst", Here they come!", said Mallory. From down
the path came footsteps. Closer and closer they came.
"Eeeeek, a ghost!" screamed all the girls under the bushes except for
Mallory and me.
"Oh, that's just Jen", I said.
And sure enough, it was Jen's voice that came out of the white costume
and said, "How did you know, Teri?" I pointed at her feet. She was wearing
the one and only pair of glow-in-the-dark shoes brought on the trip. (Her
favorite aunt had given them to her for her birthday and she now wears them
everywhere.) "Oh!" said a very disappointed Jen.
