The Bookstore Ghost
It was a typical family. There was a mother, a father, and a little girl. They were a happy family, but the little girl was lonely. She spent her days playing alone in her room with her dolls. The little girl's father was particularly worried about his baby's loneliness, so he went out and purchased an adorable, little puppy for her. Of course, the girl was delighted. It was love at first site. She loved the puppy so much she put it in bed with her that night and the two little ones nestled up next to each other in the soft, evening light.
It wasn't long before the parents heart their little girl scream. The wail cut through the night awaking both parents and sending them running into their daughter's room. The puppy had bit the little girl. Things returned to normal, but it wasn't long before the dog and the little girl began to show signs of illness. The parents took the little girl to the doctor and both she and the puppy were diagnosed with rabies. Both died shortly after.
Time went on and the building was turned into a Fraternity House. The house was remodeled and the fraternity members reported seeing a phantom girl sitting in the second story window gazing out. It wasn't just the frat boys that saw her. People walking by the house reported seeing her as well. The building is an off campus bookstore now and people still see the little girl looking longingly out the window. The women that work at the bookstore don't deny her presence. They say she still makes her appearances, sometimes alone and sometimes with her dog.
