Friday Fictioneers – Photo Opportunity


‘Who’s that? She wasn’t there!’ thought Chip, as he viewed the picture he’d just taken of his best friend Brad. Chip looked up and down the street – empty – just Brad on the corner.

The boys were new in town. What they didn’t know was that right behind Brad was the site of the old Bidwell ballet school – the same spot where the Exchange is today. Fire destroyed the school back in ’58; three young girls and their teacher were killed.

Local legend says that the school continues to put on shows. Had Chip’s camera just been lucky enough to capture their latest performance?


This is my entry into this weeks 100 word challenge over at Friday Fictioneers.

    Hi Paul, I like the idea of the disappearing dancer, there seem to be few of them conjured in this weeks FF. You hear of incidents like this of the past poking its nose into the present. Well done.

      Agreed. I am actually thinking about a short story where the ghosts are anything but scary. Ghosts get a bad rap. I hope to change that!
