Ghost Post

I am supporting an AW friend's blog who has a frequent prompt called Drabble Day Challenge - a drabble of about 100 words. The prompt today is "ghost." Hope you enjoy =)


I love being a ghost!

I haunt this romantic restaurant.

I see a bickering couple and nudge their table spilling the man's water on him. Serves you right, oaf!

There's a sweet pair on a first date. Nervous, shy, afraid to speak. Let's break the ice, shall we? If I scoot this chair along the floor just right...PFFT! They both laughed. Perfect.

But over in the corner. See the sad, lonely lady? Comes in every Thursday and watches. She'll be joining me soon. Then she'll liven up. Like me.

That used to be my table. I'll help her find the socket with her fork.

LOL, 'Then she'll liven up' almost sounds like a threat.

Oh! Me likey! I like the beautiful contrasts in your story. The lively ghost/matchmaker/death helper versus the dead living. I'm glad you took part in this week's challenge!
