Friday Fictioneers: I like…Long Walks in the Park


PHOTO PROMPT – Copyright -Björn Rudberg

When I was younger, I enjoyed long walks in the forest. When I died, I saw no reason to discontinue that hobby.

Occasionally, hikers sense me and spread rumors of a haunting.

You were the first to talk to me, to tell me it was time to move on. What did you think I was doing? I was there for a walk, so I kept walking.

Afterward, it occurred to me to write this brief note to let you know: I’m fine, really. I like walking in the forest. Hopefully, I will see you again soon, and we can talk.


This is my post for Friday Fictioneers, led by the indomitable Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. Every Friday (or, well, when we can) we get together and write 100 word stories in response to a photo prompt. Here’s mine. 🙂

  1. Such a down-to-earth ghost! She wouldn’t be scary at all. Nice idea – I like the way you’ve shown the continuity of her existence, from living child to ghost, but still the same person. Intriguing idea.
