My 100 word ghost storyAsleep, lying on my side, dreaming of my husband; I feel his weight press down on the bed. I’m in that moment between sleep and consciousness, where dreams can turn into nightmares. I start to roll over, to embrace my lover, but then I remember. My nightmare begins when I recall the conversation this morning. My husband is out of town. The thought scares me enough that I am forced awake. I flick on the lamp and am happy to see the bed holds only me. It was a nightmare. I lie back down and hear the front door shut.
The Ghosts of Our ChoosingSheila had always lived her life helping no one but herself. She strove to etch her legacy into history. It was her way of becoming immortal.
She looked up from her desk, piled high with financial charts and business proposals. A spirit began to take rough form before her.
“What do you want from me?” She managed to choke out the words.
“I beg you to stop.”
“Why must I stop my life's work?”
“Because you are only considering this life.”
The image of the spirit now became clear. It was herself, twisted in such a state of complete agony.
