TGIF! (Well, almost.) This week’s treat is another Halloween-themed story.
It’s time for Friday Fictioneers, when writers from around the world post 100-word stories based on a photo prompt provided on Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ blog. You can read other Friday Fictioneers’ work by clicking the link that appears below my story. Enjoy!
Kip and Dredge at the Ghostly Diner
by Jan Brown
Kip shifted uncomfortably in the booth. “This place gives me the creeps. Why are all the plants dead?”
Dredge rolled his eyes and shook his head in mock dismay. “What!?” he squawked. “There’s a planter full of poppies and a whole forest of trees out there. Just look out the window, genius!”
“Yeah, but look at the plastic pots. They’re empty—except for this little one with dead branches sticking up. There’s something weird about this place–like it’s haunted.”
A door creaked open in the back. The waiter glided over, skin so white it was almost blue.
