Ghost Spots

Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers!

Challenge No. 166

I love him too much to ask him to leave his family for me. He had tears in his eyes when I left him. He wanted to hold my hand but I didn’t let him. I didn’t want to complicate things for him and for me. It seems highly unlikely but I hope he’ll forget me. The sooner the better. But I could never come back again. Every place in this city is like his ghost spot. Everything will remind me of him.

I don’t know why but I told him the time of my flight. It’s my time to say goodbye.

But there he is, walking down the lane towards my apartment. He probably wants to say goodbye too. That would be the only reason he’s coming this way. I wouldn’t want to get my hopes up.

  1. Such a shame, although I wonder, just maybe he is coming back to ask her to stay?

    1. Even if he’s not, she seems like a strong woman. She’ll find love again. Thanks for reading. 😊

  2. I am sure deep down she is wishing he would leave his family but I doubt that he will. He is probably coming just to say goodbye. Great story, Shivam!

    1. I think so too😢 she has immense self control. If I was in her place, I would’ve asked him to leave his family right away! 😅 I am not strong like her! 😶


      1. Yes, I know what you mean. Me too! HAHA!

  4. Sad tale of too many women, waiting for men they can never fully possess. Well done!

  5. Very well narrated. Nice take.


  6. Sad. Perhaps they should both leave their families and just have a couple of holidays a year.

    1. That’s actually a really cool solution. It’s no use to remain unhappy all their life.
