A Ghost of a Chance – Flash Fiction 150 Word Max

“It’s a ghost town, Carol. You know, nothng living, just ghosts hanging about.” Jack snorted just a bit as they approached the vacant, unused buildings that used to make up Tindertown.

“I know that, but I don’t want to stop there!” She didn’t shreik but he thought she might.

He accelerated just a bit coming round the corner to the town. A figure stepped out in front of the vehicle and Jack managed to swing the car to the left, but not enough to miss the person.

“Jack!”

He hit the brake, looking in the mirror at … nothing.

“I must have been seeing things,” he said trying not to let his shivers show.

“No,” said Carol, “you weren’t.”

Jack followed her eyes, using the mirror to see the pasty-white translucent figure sitting in the back seat…smiling.

Neither Jack nor Carol saw the oncoming semi until it was too late.

Abandon

“Alone Again, Naturally”

Scott L Vannatter – January 25, 2015

The old, dilapidated mansion groaned quietly in the silence of the centuries.

Francesca sat on the empty floor of what used to be the main ballroom and sobbed wailing tears of abandon.

She screamed and no one came; yelled and no one answered; shrieked and listened only to silence return.

“Mama, what’s that horrible screeching sound coming from the old Banston house?” said Billae Joe, her dress dragging on the dusty road and causing a small whirlwind behind her.

“Dearest, that’s the ghost of Francesca Banston, who killed her lover in a fit of rage and jealousy and was cursed by his mother to reside forever alone in that house over one hundred and fifty years ago.”
