BCC Chapter 2: Remember Who You Are“Basil? Basil?” Basil thought he was dreaming when he heard a small voice calling his name. “Wake up Basil!” Basil jumped and found he wasn't dreaming after all.
When he looked around he saw a small boy standing by Dawson's chair. He rubbed his eyes and yawned, still feeling a little tired, before asking. “Who are you, and how in the world did you get in here?” The young boy laughed and introduced himself. “I'm the Ghost of Christmas Past, and I found my own way in.” The boy winked at Basil before bursting into laughter again.
By now Basil was wide awake and was able to take a good look at this young intruder. The boy was Olivia's age, and reminded Basil of her with his energy and childish nature. His fur was a golden-brown color and appeared to glow in the firelight. He wore a cream colored shirt, a red and gold plaid vest with gold buttons, black pants, black shoes so shiny Basil could see the reflection of the moonbeams shining through
BCC Chapter 3: The People You've TouchedBasil held his breath as long as he could, but when he felt as if his lungs were going to burst he opened his mouth to try and get some air. To his surprise he could breath normally, and his mouth didn't fill with water. When he opened his eyes he found himself back in his home on Baker Street, laying on the floor with the book on the ground in front of him. The fire had gone out and the cold air was making him shiver as much as the water had, but surprisingly his clothes were dry. He went over to the fireplace to try and restart the fire, but found the flame just wouldn't start. A little frustrated that Mrs. Judson had taken anything that didn't have anything to do with the holidays down, (except for Basil's awards and photographs) he went upstairs to find a match. While he was looking around in the dark he suddenly heard someone laughing back downstairs. As he went to investigate he found the room was full of light and warmth. When the source of the voice spotted Basil on the stairs,
BCC Chapter 4: Careful What You Wish ForWhen Basil opened his eyes, he realized that he was back in his room at Baker Street. When he looked around to see where the ringing was coming from, he spotted his alarm clock. He reached over and stopped the ringing, before noticing it was three in the morning. “So much for getting any sleep like I promised Dawson I would.” He sighed and started to lay back down when he suddenly remembered there were supposed to be three ghosts visiting him. Basil trudged downstairs and found the book on his chair where the last spirit had left it. He glanced at the part about the third ghost and became rather worried. He dropped the book and ran to his science table to try and find his revolver. “No Grim Reaper is getting the best of me tonight.”
As he continued to look for his revolver, Basil realized there was a soft glow coming from behind him. He froze for a moment before a soft voice spoke to him. “There is no need to find your revolver Basil,” Basil jumped a
BCC Chapter 5: A Meaningful LifeWhen Basil finally opened his eyes, he found himself back in his room at Baker Street. The window had flown open, and the room was so cold he thought he was still in that gust of wind, snow, ad gold dust. Basil ran over and closed the window, before tightening his robe. He rubbed his eyes feeling more tired than when he dozed off while reading the night before. It suddenly dawned on him that it was morning...but was it Christmas morning? He rushed to the stairs just in time to hear his friend come in.
“Good morning Dr. Dawson, and merry Christmas.” Mrs. Judson was always the first one up on Christmas morning.
“Good morning and merry Christmas to you too Mrs. Judson.”
Basil sighed with relief as he realized he hadn't missed a thing, say for a few hours of sleep, and trudged down the stairs. Though he still looked rather tired, he smiled and greeted his friend.
“Merry Christmas Dawson, I thought you'd have gotten back sooner.”
Dawson laughed as he hung
