Lucy inhaled the crisp air as sunlight filtered through tree leaves setting them aglow. She loved October with is tales of witches & ghosts on the prowl. The veil, she was told, thins every October allowing spirits to return. If provable, she mused. She’d love say hello to Snowball, a dog stolen from her decades ago. Returning from her run, Lucy noticed a ball bouncing down the steps. “Must belong to the neighbor’s dog.” Tossing the ball into their yard she moved to go indoors, when she heard a dog bark.
She turned seeing nothing but leaves scraping across the sidewalk.

This week’s installment of Friday Fiction shall be read live on Blab.im
