Megan Goes on Holiday

A Spirit Guide, A Ghost Tiger and One Scary Mother!

Megan is a thirteen-year-old teenage girl, who realises that she has psychic powers that others do not have. At first, she tried to talk to her mother about them, but with disastrous consequences, so she learned to keep quiet about them.

However, some people do offer to help and an animal showed a special friendship, but they were not 'alive' in the normal sense of the word. They had passed on.

Megan has three such friends: Wacinhinsha, her Spirit Guide, who had been Sioux in his last life on Earth; her maternal grandfather, Gramps and a huge Siberian tiger called Grrr.

Wacinhinsha is extremely knowledgeable in all things spiritual, psychic and paranormal; her grandfather is a novice 'dead person' and Grrr can only speak Tiger, as one might imagine and most of that, of course is unintelligible to humans.

In 'Megan Goes on Holiday', the family goes on holiday abroad and Megan becomes besotted with the place. On her return home, she makes a bit of a fool of herself by pretending to be what she is not and showing off. However her mother and a few others bring her back to reality

Wacinhinsha gives her an explanation for her recent infatuation with her holiday destination.

Sample text:

1 THE FAMILY CHOOSES A HOLIDAY

Megan’s father had been suffering from fatigue and RSI recently, but had recovered sufficiently to go back to work, although he was still not in tip-top condition. One evening, he returned home from the office carrying a bulging plastic bag. Megan met him at the front door as usual.

“Hello, Daddy, how are you today? Let me take your bag and briefcase,” She reached up to kiss him on the cheek, as was her custom.

“What’s in the plastic bag? I’ve never seen you go shopping on your own before?”

Curiosity was getting the better of her, so she was about to look inside, although she knew that it was bad manners to pry. Robert took the bag from her before she could open it, but allowed her to carry his briefcase.

“What’s for dinner tonight, I wonder? It smells like… casserole – my favourite!”

“Oh, Daddy! Everything is your favourite!”

“Everything is my favourite sometimes. Casserole is my favourite today, but it might not be tomorrow.”

“What will be?”

“I don’t know yet… I’m a very capricious person, but I’ll have a think about it and tell you when I get in tomorrow evening”.
