100 Word Story: A Familiar Stranger

A Familiar Stranger (100 words):
It happens when you are minding your own business... going your own way in the world. That's when the world decides to fall apart. I stand on the subway platform freezing, just like I had done every morning since I had been forced to move.
Then, I see 'him'.

I have to squint through the swirling snow to make sure my eyes aren't playing tricks, but there is no doubt. Same dark hair. Same haunting blue eyes. Same dab of red on the crease of his mouth.
It's him. My love.

Only it's not. He's been dead for two years.

  1. Any chance you may someday turn this into more than 100 words? I loved that, really want to know how she can be seeing him.

  2. Very cool! I like the last sentence a lot. It has a good punch.

  3. Fun stuff. I agree, it would be fun to see this as a full length novel, or even a novella.

  4. Awesome! You did a great job. Very eery.

  5. AGH! Why do you do this to me? Every. Time.
