“Come with me, littluns,” she said, pulling the hand of the smallest bear. The others grabbed hold and Clare led a chain of tiny bears through the forest toward the field. At six, Clare was the oldest of the littuns, since her brother Robbie no long played with them. At the edge of the field she stared, not believing her eyes.

Instead, I nearly fell backwards off my own bunk I was so startled to see two transparent girls hovering in the impossibly narrow space between the bunks, staring down at me. Instead of falling, however, my bottom hit a spot in the air so freezing it caused me to flip over on my bunk to investigate, thereby saving me a probable broken leg or neck. However, the ensuing near heart attack might not have been worth it. Another transparent girl floated on this opposite side of my bunk, also staring at me. She smiled as I scooted immediately toward the head of my bed, holding my pillow before me as a shield and yanking the blanket up to my chin. The cold I had experienced moments earlier, however, spread throughout my being until I shivered uncontrollably.
