Merry meet all,
‘Tis the time for that eerie chill that breathes on your neck, for cats’ hisses to ring out and trees howl like ghosts in the wind.
Everyone loves a spooky story. The Writers Federation of Nova Scotia just published my story on their website. Here it is:
‘Till Death do us Part
By Heddy Johannesen
21-year old Christina Winters shrieked. She pushed at the solid wood above her and realized she was in a coffin.
I’m not dead, she thought. I’m not dead. She screamed and pounded the lid with her fists. Her heart raced and her eyes widened in fear. Dirt caked the inside of her mouth. Something slithered across her bare toes. No, she thought. No, I’ve got to get out of here.
With all her strength, she shoved the lid aside and gulped in deep breaths of air. She tried to call for help but her throat felt funny. She climbed from the coffin, tripped on the hem of her gown, and walked toward the church. She wiped a drop of muddy blood off her chin and clutched her bouquet. Light glowed from the church windows. Her bloodstained hand shoved the door wide open. A man gasped and froze when he recognized her. The moon cast an eerie glow over the cemetery.
She reached the altar. It would be their honeymoon tonight. She dropped the bouquet and collapsed. He cradled her in his arms to her grave and laid her down in the coffin. He put a red rose down and kissed his true love. He knelt by her grave for long moments. As he turned away, a bony hand shot out from the earth and seized his foot.
A piercing scream rant out into the night then all went silent.
