Why, hello. Great to have you here. Put up your feet. Relax. Don’t mind the ghost wandering through these halls, mostly friendly most of the time. Just try to remember: don’t wear red, don’t talk about the color red, preferably don’t even think about the color red.

This is my entry for Friday Fictioneers, where every Friday we get together and write 100 word stories in response to a prompt. Sound like fun? Give it a try!

The wonder of it all.
Speak to me
Of friendly memories,
Of welcome ghosts.
Are you listening?
Are you here?

You are here.
