Aaron Johnston is a character created by Kiki. He appeared in the episode "The Tale of the Quicksilver".


Aaron and his family just moved into a new house. He and his younger brother Doug first noticed that their bedroom mysteriously felt cold for some reason. Then that night there seemed to be an earthquake in only their bedroom. Then for some reason it stopped when the lights were turned on.

Then at school, he bumped into a pretty girl in the hallway by accident. He and her smiled at each other and apologized. Then in Miss Berg's class math class he sits by this pretty girl and finds out she is named Connie Turner. Also as he heads to his seat, suddenly a gust of winds makes everyone's papers go flying. Then his desk begins levitating. Then his pen goes rolling on the floor. Miss Berg is not too happy with him. She thinks that he is trying to be a class comedian, and that he has not made a good start in the school.

Then during lunchtime, he meets Connie in the cafeteria. And she compliments him on his nice silver pilot wings necklace. He thanks her saying it was his grandfather's, who served in the war. After Connie left, his younger brother Doug teasingly said he's got a girlfriend, which he denies.

Later at night, he has a dream. At first he can see himself sleeping. So he thinks it is a really cool dream. Then he sees a girl who looks like Connie. She is doing a candlelit magical ritual trying to get rid of a demonic ghost that is haunting the bedroom. Then he can see that her wand is not working. Then the girls looks at him as the bedroom goes up in flames. She says to him: "I was wrong I did it wrong".

Aaron then wakes up and he finds his younger brother Doug has gotten very sick now. His brother points out that his pilot wings necklace was moving by itself to the wall. When he and his brother run after it, it stops under the baseboard. Then he realizes that baseboard comes off. Then in a small dark and dusty spot he finds a partially burned yearbook. It magically opens to a page where a picture of the girl in his dream is. The page reveals there are two girls who look like Connie. But the burned off part only showed that one of them is named Laura Turner.

Then suddenly, the Creature of Darkness appears. And the creature slowly closes in on him and his brother. He and Doug were terrified screaming their heads off. Then when his parents showed up, the Creature has mysteriously vanished. They thought he just scared himself telling his brother too many scary stories. Also that his brother was seeing things from a fever. Since his brother was now dreadfully sick.

The next day at school, he asks Connie who Laura is. At first she is mad thinking he is messing with her and trying to get her going. When he shows the old yearbook, he surprises her to reveal that he lives in her old house. So Connie tells Aaron that Laura was her twin sister and she is dead. He expresses his condolences.

Then he nicely and politely asks her how she died. Connie explains to him that her sister claimed that their house was haunted. Apparently the house was built over an old cemetery. So one evil creature stay behind and haunted the house lurking in the walls. However, nobody believed Laura. She was dreadfully sick with an untreatable cold and fever. So everyone thought she was just hallucinating. Laura said it was the evil ghost doing it to her. So she decided to get rid of the evil ghost herself. So one night she got a book of magic and she lit some candles. Then she tried doing some magic to capture the evil ghost. However, something went wrong. Then the bedroom caught fire and she died in it.

Then he tells Laura that it was happening again. The pattern was back. Now his younger brother was very sick with an untreatable illness. So the demonic ghost will claim another innocent live. He convinces her to help, since she didn't believe her sister the last time. So she came over to Aaron his house to help get rid of the evil ghost. He and Connie followed all of Laura steps and instructions. Then for some reason they just cannot get the wand to work. Until he realizes the wand was incorrectly made with a steel spoon. So he quickly stuffed his pilot wings necklace into the tip of the wand.

Now the wand worked, so he commanded the evil ghost to enter a containment amulet. Then Laura's ghost came out of the wall. Then he and Connie gave her the amulet for safekeeping. Also his brother instantly recovered from his illness.
