Just a love story involving a ghost...

This had been love…


The summer was about to end so I decided to visit my hometown before I went back to school.


I was very excited and I could not wait to see my friends again. Especially Scarlet Price, I had fallen in love with her since I first saw her. She was so great, at least for me. But I never made the courage to tell her how I felt. Seeing her again was just like a nice dream and I kept telling myself ‘I’m going to tell her tonight!’


Of course, I did not do it. The first night I went out with my friends I was so determined to talk to her but when I saw her I got cold feet. The second night I got sick and left earlier. The third night we went to a disco so I thought it was not an appropriate place. I kept doing this for about a week. But one night I just was not able to avoid it anymore.


It had got late so everyone went home. I thought I had failed again but as I turned round I saw Scarlet. She was still there. She simply said ‘I love you too!’ and then she gave me a cold kiss.


Afterwards, as I was walking towards home, I found myself wondering into the cemetery. I had not even realized where I was that is how confused she left me.


I looked at my clock and the grave in front of me caught my attention. I read the name carved on it: Scarlet Price.

Another good one. A striking vignette. Another "I Like It" vote.

Happy trails,

xoPaigexo did Scarlet die or was she already dead? Like did the person meet her while she was alive?
