*These are three short stories I made with Alexander and his daughter Mallory.They are from my “The clown and the little girl” stories.I hope you enjoy. As always, Gacha Club character designs are on my wall. Let’s begin!
1.Alexander talking to ghost hunters
“Shh..hear that? That’s the clown.He’s crying.”
Teen amateur ghost hunters Tyler,Evan,Elliott, and Katie were currently in the haunted Harrison house,which was said to house a man named Alexander,who performed as a clown in life.He had this sickly daughter named Mallory who lived with his unstable ex-wife named Maisie,who had shot Mallory in the head,thinking she was a kid bullying Mallory and not knowing it was her own daughter.
He had heard the news from a phone call.Still in his clown costume,he ran outside to see her in the hospital,but had gotten hit by a truck.
Now,there were rumors that he was still alive for a few minutes after the truck had hit him and that he still could have been sent to the hospital and nursed back to health,but the people who ran him over buried him in the unfinished sidewalk,too scared to admit their crimes.
There were legends that he was buried alive and too weak to scream.
Legend had it that after he died,he killed Maisie for ruining his life.Maisie stayed in the basement and he went all around the house,crying about his daughter,screaming,moaning,scratching the walls and breaking glass.
He never killed anyone,except his ex-wife and had mostly scared visitors away.He’s been known to be kind to young children,though.Perhaps because of Mallory..
No one had ever seen him.A handful of children said they saw him once,but those children were adults and long-dead.
No one else had seen him.
He cannot leave the house,he’s bound to the house.Maisie is trapped as well.Mallory is said to haunt his old circus and is searching for him,but he can’t leave.His energy is bound to it.
But those were just stories..right?
Well,these teenagers were going to find out.
Most of the house was dirty and dusty,the furniture overturned and covered in plastic.
Katie walked upstairs and found a closed door.
Huh..no doors were closed in this house..except this one..
Katie turned the knob..
The room had pink walls,a large bed with white sheets,shelves of toys,books and board games,an old music box in the corner of a shelf,LED fairy lights on the ceiling,all turned off.There was a lamp with silver butterflies which was also turned off and flowers and butterflies painted on the walls.
But the paint and decorations were peeling off and fading.The room was dusty.
Katie coughed up dust.
Another thing,any time someone walked into a room,a light would turn on,as if lighting up the way for visitors.
But this room..did not have lights turned on.
“What are you doing in her room?”
Katie turned around..
..So..the legends were true..the halls may have been a little dark..but she knew the voice speaking was not one of her companions..she could faintly tell..it was a..clown..
“Alexander?” She asked.
“So people have been spreading my story.”
“So you’ll know you’re not allowed to go inside Mallory’s room.”
“No.I didn’t know that..”
“Could you please leave her room?” He asked.He seemed distressed.
“Why?” Katie asked softly.
“I don’t want anyone in her room…it’s her room..please…leave..now…”
Katie didn’t bother to ask.She just walked out of her room and he closed the door,following after her.
“I thought you couldn’t touch physical objects.”
“Most of the time.But I can close Mallory’s door.That’s the only physical thing I can touch.I can’t touch people or other objects.Obviously,I can touch other ghosts..say,why are you here,anyway?”
“Me and my friends wanted to find you-“
“Ah yes,you’re one of those.”
“Ghost hunters.They come here everyday,to hear me cry.I..I just cry,okay? I..I miss her…what more do you want from me? Why must you stay and record my distress? Have you got nothing else to do?”
“I..I never thought of it that way..”
“No,you didn’t.You people never do.You just want to hear me weep.How would you like it if someone wanted to record you in times of distress?”
“You wouldn’t like it,now would you?”
“Why do you feel comfortable talking to me? I’m a human-“
“I’m still human,dead or alive.”
“Go and take your friends with you.Tell no one you saw me.”
“You okay? You look like you’re about to cry.”
With that,he disappeared.As if he were never there at all.
“Find the ghost?”
Katie didn’t look at them.She just thought about the look in his eyes,the lonely,breaking look and a single,silent tear slid out of her eye.
Katie shook her head no.She wasn’t about to tell them about Alex..
Poor Alex..was he alright?
She never cared for a ghost like now..he seemed so..so..human..so…alive.
“We..we should go now..”
“Yeah..I’d feel better if we left..”
“Okay,Katie.If you say so.But we should go back-“
“No,I don’t want to go back.”
“You want us to never go back?”
“Ugh,fine! Whatever!” They cried out.They did everything together.If one of them didn’t want to go,the rest wouldn’t,too.It was only fair for their friendship.
Katie just vowed to never return here.It was all too much for her.Being the only one who could see ghosts, she never really cared for them.They were just ghosts.An indistinct entity.
But this was different.This was real.
She couldn’t face Alexander’s sadness,couldn’t face the reality of his loneliness..
2.Mallory talking to ghost hunters
In a forgotten circus,there was a little girl,hiding inside a tent.
She wasn’t alive,this girl.She died decades ago.
The girl’s name was Mallory Alissa Jackson.She had a terrible sickness that weakened her entire body and couldn’t be cured.
But that’s not what she died from.
No,her mother shot her by accident,thinking that she was a rude child.
Yeah,her mother had…issues…
Mallory should have been up in Heaven and she did go there sometimes,just to see Earth at a higher view.
She preferred being in Earth,because that was where her Dad was.
In life,he tried to make people laugh and smile.He was a clown,after all.
In fact,he performed in the very circus Mallory haunted now!
He even made a doll for Mallory.It was a pale porcelain clown doll,with curly black hair in pigtails,pink flowers in her hair,a red dress and a pink balloon.
The very doll she now possessed.
The doll was at the circus,but it was dedicated to her and she’d never let go of the doll.
It was the only thing she had left of her Dad.
He..he died..and he wasn’t in the same place as her.
She didn’t know where he was now!
Mallory silently cried in the very tent she was hiding in,holding the doll close to her.
Would it always be like this? Lonely days,lonely nights? Was she doomed to never have peace? Was her soul to be forever tormented-
“And this is where the ghost girl is said to haunt.To this day,no one knows why she’s here.”
Mallory raised her head up.
Did…did he come back?
Did her Dad finally return?
Was he going to see her again?
Mallory rushed out of the tent and-
-and was met with a blinding light.
Was this the end?
Was her spirit going to fade away?
“Oh look,it’s the ghost girl herself! Chad,did you get that on camera?”
Mallory blinked her eyes and saw two older people,one girl with bright pink hair,blue eyes,a red shirt,a short jean skirt and black high boots.
The boy had black hair,green eyes,a yellow shirt,gray pants and brown sneakers.
These people…who were they? What were they doing here?
“Who..who are you guys?”
“Look,the ghost is talking! We’ve never had a ghost talk to us! Chad,record this! We have to show everyone at school!”
“I’m getting it,Paige!”
“Finally,they’ll believe us when we say ghosts are real!”
“What’s going on?!” Mallory asked,panicking.
“Calm down,little girl.We’re just going to film you-“
“It will be like you’re on T.V.,only-“
“I don’t want to be on T.V.!”
“You’re missing the point.You’re not going to be on T.V. .Well,you could be if this ghost sighting video goes viral.Chad,if you drop that phone I’m going to kill you-“
Mallory couldn’t take it anymore,this awful,sickening feeling of weakness.
So,she flew back to the tent,to where her funhouse doll was and hid inside of the doll.
Maybe they would leave her alone if they couldn’t find her.
Maybe they would go away…
3. Alexander will always be there for his daughter
In a forgotten house, there was a clown ghost named Alexander and his five year old daughter,Mallory.
Both could go to Heaven if they wanted to,they both had angel wings.
But they didn’t want to most of the time.They just stayed in Earth together,because it held memories.
In fact,Alexander was using his wings to warm up Mallory.
“When I used to be in the circus,there were..these people.”
“Um..a lady with pink hair named Paige and a black-haired guy named Chad.”
“They called themselves “ghost hunters.” They put this light to my face..they were so loud..it was so bright..they said they were gonna film me-“
“They did what?”
“They-they filmed me.”
“How long ago was this?”
“A very long time ago,I don’t remember.”
At that moment,Alexander wished he could give them a piece of his mind.Nobody should bother his daughter,dead or alive!
But he wasn’t there to protect Mallory at the time.
“Well,you don’t need to worry about them.I’m sure they won’t come here,to this house.”
“But what if they do? What if they film me again? I don’t want to be filmed,Daddy.I..the cameras are so bright…”
“If they do come here..to film you…they won’t be stepping out of this house.”
“What does that mean?”
“Nothing,sweetheart.It’s just something I did a long time ago,that I’m willing to do again,when Mommy was trying to bother me.”
“What happened to Mommy?”
Alexander smiled at her,in an effort to mask his panic.
She didn’t need to know what he did with her Mommy.No one did.
“Just stay close to me and you’ll be okay.”
“Um..okay,Daddy.If you say so.”
