Farewell

These are my hundred words for Friday Fictioneers.














She had but days. Just time to visit special places, childhood haunts.

Boys said the echoing tunnel was haunted. They dared her to run through. Sometimes they hid in the darkness and jumped out on her!

When she was older she scratched her name in the brickwork. Was it still there?

She stood in the entrance.

“Hello” she called....HelloHelloHelloHello....it echoed.

“Anybody there?".....theretheretherethere....? 

She smiled, as she wandered in.

She found her name, but below was scrawled RIP. On the floor some flowers.

She heard a rushing sound.

“Hello?” she called.....FarewellFarewellFarewellFarewell....it echoed.

She looked at peace when they found her.






Thank you ROCHELLE for Friday Fictioneers

  1. Even if she had but days left, I doubt she'd have wished to be buried there! Hope she's at peace.

  2. Ouch. I guess she had made some enemies during here life.. or she just met evil.

  5. Cool - creepy but cool. I like the 'visiting childhood haunts', a great little bit of foreshadowing to her visit of an actual haunted place. Well done.

  6. I like the way you've used "haunts" as the kingpin.

  10. If she looked at peace, dieing there and then may not have been a bad thing for her, since she only had days left anyway. Happy belated Birthday!
