A Random Blog of Everything I like

Saturday Story: Her Ghost (for FTP & Flash 55)

Donna buried everything her grandma had given her when she was still alive; a crystal vase, a wooden box and an antique doll. She wished by doing that her grandma’s ghost would leave her alone.

“That won’t keep me away, dear,” the ghost whispered, “I will follow you around till the danger has left you.”

Total: 55 words for Crystal (100)

This is my latest flash for for Flash in The Pan hosted by Red @ M3~Where Everything Matters

And because I managed to write it in 55 words, I also share this flash on Flash 55 (hosted by The G-man).

Any given corrections on grammar and critics on the story are more than welcome. Do share them in the comment 🙂

    A friendly ghost may be a good ghost to have.

      Hear hear…but how do one know that the ghost is friendly 😉

    We all need a Grandma ghost like that!
    p.s. You asked about the Maori legend I wrote. It is based on an original one from the Napier region in North Island, New Zealand.

      I don’t know about that…I mean a ghost is still a ghost 😉

      Thank you for telling that here, I was just about to stop by at your blog again to see the answer 🙂

    You ARE going to continue this, right? What danger? Also, what’s an antie doll?

    • Novroz
      June 5, 2013

      I am not sure…yet. I quite like the hanging ending there, let reader wondering. But maybe I can elaborate it to a short one day.

      Ups…I misspelled that with my own language, I meant antique. Will fix it soon.

        Ah, that makes a lot of sense. I don’t know why I didn’t think of antique at all. I thought maybe auntie.

    I would welcome such a caring “grandmotherly” ghost.

      June 5, 2013

      But sometimes grandma “talk” to much 😉

    Oh I wonder what the danger is!

    • Novroz
      June 5, 2013

      …hmm I wonder that myself 😉

    That was such an unexpected twist at the end. Well done.
