Castle (Ghost) Crenshaw lives in Glass Manor with his mother and father. They were a poor family, living a normal life, in a normal house.
One day, his father got horribly drunk and chased them with a loaded gun. Ghost and his mother hid in the closet of Mr. Charles' shop. This was a point where Ghost found out he could run.
One day, Ghost was waiting to go home. He saw a newbie (Lu) that was beating the whole team. For no reason, Ghost walks up, and races him. It was a tie. Coach hurriedly makes an arrangement. If Ghost doesn't make a lot of trouble, he could stay on the Defenders(Track team).
The next day, Ghost was bullied again from his 'childhood friend' for cutting his high tops. Ghost puched him and went to the principal's office. The principal didn't help Ghost. Ghost ditched school and went to Mr. Charles' store for sunflower seeds.
Ghost got scolded by an almost deaf Mr. Charles for skipping school. Ghost then went to a shoe store to steal a pair of silver shoes. He was very anxious that the police would chase him. He got away with it.
Mr. C's Store
On the day where the members of the Defenders were getting the jersey, Ghost did not receive one. He went up to Coach to ask him, 'Why don't I get a jersey?' Coach held a wanted sign of Ghost. Shoplifting.
