The Alumni Meet

Their faces lit up with animation as they walked towards the marina for their Alumni Meet.


“So many people, and only the three of us had to become best friends. What were the odds?” said Kelvin.

“I know,” chirped up Dana, “And we didn’t even like each other when we first met.”

Flint hugged both of them tight, and said nothing for some time. Then, he slowly lifted his head and asked, “Do you think we would have still been friends if we hadn’t died together on that boat accident?”


90 words.

Written as a part of the Friday Fictioneers challenge, hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (more details HERE). The objective is to write a story in 100 words or less based on the weekly photo prompt.

Note: My apologies to readers who have been visiting my blog this week and leaving behind their kind words of appreciation and feedback, as I haven’t been able to comment at all. I’ve been down with a bad case of throat infection since the beginning of the week, and am just about able to write my daily story before I need to lie down again. My throat, by the way, is what his heel was to Achilles, and does this a bit too often, so nothing to worry about 🙂

    Probably not, adversity always brings people together.

  11. pennygadd51 says:

    You’ve written the description of the relationship between the three very economically but also strongly – I empathised with them. That made your little twist at the end even more effective. Well done!

  12. subroto says:

    The ghostly trio! Been a while since I read my Casper 😉 Nice twist in the end.

  13. You have to have something in common with a friend.

  14. granonine says:

    Surprising ending, very warm and friendly, this trio of ghosts 🙂
