Patrick didn't want to go to Waskasoo City for school. His dad was the principal and is mom died of an illness a year before. At night he was at school with his dad. He left the office and was drawn up to the second floor. When he was at the top he saw a boy--to his surprise-- floating two feet above the ground. He was a blue green color and was dressed in old fashioned clothes. He wore knickerbockers and an old sailor collar. His face was sad and filled with pain. Patrick ran to his dad and told him what he saw but his dad didn't believe him.
