Friday Fictioneers: Ghosts
“Don’t go there.”
“It’s condemned. You don’t want to fall through the floor and break leg.”
“It’s haunted. Ghosts will get you.”
Words JD had heard all his life. Now that he was grown, no one could stop him.
He crept up to the old building, stood with his back to the wall and listened.
No sounds of ghosts.
He looked in a broken window.
He searched the house. No Ghosts.
He left disappointed.
Two ghosts watched ten-year old JD leave.
“Why not tell him?”
“He’s too young. He’ll return when he’s older. He’ll help us then.”

Rochelle Wisoff-Fields hosts the writing challenge Friday Fictioneer. She posts a photo and we write a 100 word flash fiction about the photo.

I guess ghosts have plenty of time to wait!
I think you’re right. ;0)
Ghosts simply watch unseen and unheard. Young JD does not realise.
They seem pretty confident that he will be back. Wonder what they know that he doesn’t yet?
I don’t know. That’s part of the mystery. Have any thoughts?
I am sure they have some sort of connection to the boy. Parents? Grandparents? They call to him and visit him in his dreams. That is one idea.
Great idea. I like it. You’re welcome to write the story, if you have more. I’d work on it with you, but I have enough to work on for now. Please let me know if you post. something.
Oh, thank you, but I have a long list of stories that I need to write. Perhaps I will revisit this on at some point. I try to post a new piece every day, and I am try to make time for another project. 😊
I know. There are so many great stories to write and so little time to write all of them.
Happy Writing, Phyllis
Sweet… I love that he thinks he is grown at age 10 🙂
Thanks. Glad you caught that. ;0)
Wonderful way to end the story. Smart ghosts 🙂
I love the way this is put together. The concept is great.
