[Flash Fiction] The Case Of The Prejudiced Ghost

“Trey, tell me that’s not a skull.” The grey-haired detective stared at the half-buried cranium and proceeded to smack his partner upside the head. “Do you know what this means?”

“You’re no longer going to the Bahamas?” The young rookie replied, sure that a bruise was forming from all the times he’d been whacked.

“It means the next skull you’ll find is mine after I tell my wife we’re cancelling our vacation. Again.”

Beside the detectives, a transparent figure huffed in exasperation. “12 years, 4 months, and 27 days and my body’s found by two numbskull cops.”

  1. Based on their conversation, I don’t think the ghost is too prejudiced. If not a numbskull, at least the veteran detective sounds highly unmotivated. I’ll hold onto the hope that justice will be served.

    Nice story, Jade.

    1. And you wouldn’t be wrong lol I think there’s potential for the ghost to be prejudiced, perhaps in a future story with a larger word count, I can flesh that out haha xD.

      Thank you for critiques and feedback, Chris! Always appreciated 🙂
