Hello! Happy Halloween!
I wrote the following story some time last month and it feels appropriate to post it here for Halloween. This flash fiction was inspired by a prompt my cousin suggested, “A story set in a dystopia/AU where living with ghosts is a norm/common”
I hope you enjoy it!
Refer the glossary present at the end of the story for the meaning and explanation of the terms marked with an (*) asterisk
Moving is always difficult. There are always so many things to pack. So many things to be left behind. Finding a decent living space is even more difficult when you are a college student living on minimal wage.
I lived in a dorm until last semester and you can probably imagine what it was like. Paper-thin walls and late night parties on the night before exams. Which was generally followed by drunken accidents and fights (that is how I got my broken nose). Let us also not forget the heating that rarely worked or the questionable stains on the furniture… you catch my drift, right?
The apartment complex was an old structure and hence it came as no surprise to me that it was haunted by a few ghosts.
