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 .
