Ashmol tells us the story. His sister has two imaginary friends. Ashmol was mocking at her because of that. These imaginary friends are Pobby and Dingan. Their mother pretends like these imaginary friends exist.
Kellyanne talked to herself in the class and her teacher complained about that. After that, her father told Kellyanne, â€œyour friends Pobby and Dingan will come with me and you can see them after the class.â€
After the school she asked her father where her friends are and he made a story up. She understood that he lost them. Then, they went to find them. They enter someone elseâ€™s territory while trying to find Kellyanneâ€™s imaginary friends. As a result of this, father went to jail for a day.
Kellyanne was upset because they couldnâ€™t find her friends and she got sick. Ashmol understood that her sister could get well if they find her friends. Ashmol told everybody in the town that the friends were missing and he offer an award for one who can find them. After that, some people came and told they found P. and D. Kellyanne asked some questions about them to test them and she understood they lied for award.
Then, Kellyanne told her brother that he can look for them in the territory where their father got caught. He was afraid but he went there. He found D.â€™s opal under a stone and P.â€™s chocolate bar. Then, everything sort of fit together perfectly for a new story. When he got home, he told Kellyanne that D. and P. were dead. Kellyanne believed him.
They arranged a funeral ceremony for them and told everybody in the town. Ashmol did everything because he wanted Kellyanne to get well. Funeral was crowded. Kellyanne was happy but not that much because she was sick. After a week, Kellyanne passed away and she was buried with them.
At the beginning of the story, Ashmol mocked at her because of these imaginary friends but now, he thought D. and P. was real. Boston Public Library's Online Catalog
