A short post to share the ‘ghost themed’ story I entered into a 100 word competition last month. I didn’t win, but here it is, just for fun!
Everyone in town thinks the hotel is haunted, but I disagree. That’s why I’m staying here tonight.
Gone midnight, still awake. Creaks rattle around the echoey room, but I’m fine. There’s no such thing as ghosts.
My bathroom door slams and I leap into the air. I’m startled, not scared, it’s someone’s idea of a joke. I’ll get them back.
Silence cocoons me as I approach, intending to burst inside, but before I get there, the door flies open and a piercing cackle flies through me, hitting the wall with a thud.
Now I’m scared.
I run and scream, “ghost!”
