Ghost Story (Short Story)


Wind hissed past my ears as I ran downhill. Sticks and gravel skidded under my feet occasionally. I had to check my pace as I hurtled past trees. If I tripped they would catch me. I hadn’t seen them but I could hear them behind me their panting an echo of mine. They called for me to stop. There was no way I was stopping not with a ghost chasing me. I didn’t dare glance back at the shadowy figure. I had nearly caught up to my friends. I yelled at them to run. Then I was in the middle of them. They grabbed me asking what was wrong spinning me around.

‘Ghost,’ I panted pulling at them to run with me.

I couldn’t see them but I could hear them around the corner panting and feet slipping. Then just as my friends were starting to run the girl rounded the corner.

‘Wait,’ she panted, ‘your phone.’

We all stopped and looked back at her and my friends looked at me with looks that asked seriously that’s your ghost.

‘Thanks,’ I took my phone from her, ‘I thought you were a ghost, I’m sorry I ran.’

She smiled at me and vanished.

I’m Back

I know it’s been a little over three weeks that I haven’t posted and in that time a lot happened.

I had four assignments due in the last week. It feels so good not to have to worry about them any more. Hopefully I wont have to do group work again next trimester.

I’m also doing extra umpiring which means I am umpiring three days a week now. I’m also doing a tournament this Sunday which is a bonus. Also while I’m on the subject of netball we won our second Tuesday game last night. It was really exciting we came back literally in the last minute of the game.

It was also my best friends birthday recently. I made her lasagne and am going to surprise her with something soon because we both didn’t have time right near her Birthday. I can’t say what it is here because she might be reading this. Hi if you are 🙂

Any way I think that’s all for now. I should be back to my daily schedule.

I’m Tired

I’m tired of staying up late,

I’m tired of sleeping past eight.

I’m tired of uni assessments,

And ridiculous group assignments.

I’m tired of all the confusion,

I’m tired of this seclusion.

I’m tired of rushing around,

And there being too much sound.

I’m tired of missing my mates,

I’m tired of the lack of debates.

I’m tired of all the disasters,

And the ridiculously happy broadcasters.

I’m tired of living in moments,

I’m tired of missing components.

I’m tired of missing the past,

And fearing what the future will cast.

I’m tired…

I Love You

I love you like a sister,

And right now, I miss ya.

No I love you more than that,

I think but like, I don’t know what.

We’ve been best friend for ages,

And friends since the early stages.

‘Is she you’re sister?’ people say,

‘No,’ I smile and laugh and it’s okay.

If they looked closer they could see,

How different, you are, from me.

We laughed about it often before,

Spending time with you is never a bore.

I read your thoughts and you read mine,

We answer questions at the same time.

I didn’t realise how hard it’d be,

Not to see you, reg-u-lar-ly.
