Title: Haunting Solitude
Category & Prompt: 5/A : Ghost
I wish she would stop haunting me. Today she appeared suddenly in the elevator, scaring a mother and child. I doubt that the child would ever be the same again.
‘You are dead,’ I told her flatly once, in a moment of intoxication, drowning myself in my sorrow of her loss, ‘at least act like you’re dead,’
She smiled. I hate that I am defenseless when she smiled. She floated towards me in the dark, a ghost of a woman I once loved. Still do, quite frankly. Only that she was now dead. And ethereal.
She smiled a sad smile.
