Friday Fictioneers 2/19/21: The last delivery

The following 100-word story is written for Friday Fictioneers and is based on the next picture.


“Denn die Todten Reiten Schnell. (For the dead travel fast.)”

Bram Stoker, Dracula

Lucy knocked on the massive door for a second time and was turning around to leave when it opened. Looking down she stammered “Sorry to disturb you but I’ve brought your mail. There was a lot of it so I couldn’t fit it in the box …“

She nervously waited for the man to take the packages from her then was confused as she realized the one marked “cremated remains “ was missing.

“I must have left one in the truck, if you’ll hold on ..”

“No need . They’ve come back on their own.” Lucy felt the same chill that comes right before dawn course through her veins as she saw the missing package in the man’s hands .

Lucy turned and ran .

And like a celebrity, I'm just like everyone else... I hope my readers will find my blog relatable to the idiosyncrasies , craziness and flaws that we all have. If you are perfect, I'm sorry and congratulations .This might not be the feeble attempt at a blog for you .PLEASE email me and give me your secret. It will save me a lot writing . I just read a piece about how my authors “ about me “page is probably boring everyone to death. I have always had a lot to say but my first claim to fame was in Eighth grade when one of my teachers read a story I had written to the class. I don’t remember what exactly it was about but the first sentence was “Coma. Unconscious. “. You see where I am going with this. My classmates were in awe. I was an instant star and most likely to write a book . And yet , here I am : boring you to death without a best seller . I need to change that.
