OHS School Ghost
Most kids at OHS come and go. But James was different. After his death, James’ ghost now haunts the school and the gym. James was about my age, 13, when he became a ghost. His hair is brown, he has blurry blue eyes, freckles on his face, and he wears an old basketball uniform. James’ ghost lives in the school and lingers under the bleachers in the gym. When he moves about the halls, most people claim to smell the rubbery smell of a basketball. I don't know James’ last name. No one does.
Nobody knows how James died or why he now haunts the school. He haunts the entire high school, but he seems to prefer the Jr.High hallways. Every night he opens all the lockers and takes out every basketball, sometimes hiding them from the coaches. If you are ever at the school late at night practicing or getting something from your locker, you can sometimes hear a basketball bouncing in the hallway along with some creepy moaning.
People don't see James that often. He doesn't talk to people, and when you happen to see him, he will look at you and then mysteriously disappear. Only a couple of people have talked to him, and I'm not one of them. Whenever I have seen him, he looked like a black shadow of a boy with a basketball. But as soon as you catch a glimpse of him, he swiftly disappears. James sightings usually occur when the halls are empty and kids are in class.
The legend claims that James’ ghost will leave after he has haunted the school for 100 years. This may be true and it might not be. But as for now, James will remain a mystery and continue to haunt the school, maybe even forever.
