And witness a star that twinkles,

More than any other.” ---Anonymous

Chapter One

Five phantoms lurked invisibly in a tiny corner of the sky. On stormy evenings, they shed tears that added to the rain that splashed over the Earth. Sometimes, on the gym windows, rivulets of water streaked the clear glass panes, like tears rolling down the cheeks of an unhappy child.

Five marauders, seeking athletic human hosts, and a place for ghosts to take care of unfinished business, a state basketball championship.
