Ketchup With Us #5 – Lingering Spirits

Tell us a ghost story, real or fiction, in 57 words or less. Ketchup With Us

The holiday is over, sure, but you still have plenty of Halloween candy left. If you dig to the bottom of the loot bag/bucket, you might still find a spooky story to share with us. It’s either that or the peanut butter cups.Ms Mel and ODNT want to know it! Possibly to re-enact with stuffed animals. Possibly to draw . Possibly to tell their kids.

Here’s my story. Is it real, or fiction?

Opening my eyes, I sensed the ghost above me taking those dreams, shifting in the breeze as it dissipated through the ceiling. Just part of the dream, I thought, suddenly noticing my cat staring unflinchingly into the spot where the spirit escaped.
