THE SEARCHING GIRL by E.F. Olsson

Upon entering the street, I could see that no one was there. I took a few steps away from the back door of the store and felt a sudden chill. My arms prickled with goose bumps. My face felt flushed.

Andre stepped out behind. He noticed the paleness to my face.

“Did you see her?” He asked in a whispered tone.

“I saw someone,” I said. “As clear as you are to me. Standing there, watching.”

“Was she in red?”

She was, I thought.

“Long dark hair that covered her face?”

She did.

“That’s her. You’ve seen her. She is looking for someone, I believe.”

Please no.

“She was the one murdered here,” he continued with the story of finding her body beside the trash and it still being an unsolved case but I wanted to hear no more.

There was a crash down in the alley. Andre jolted and bolted inside. I waited and listened.

There was nothing. Just me, the quiet of the night, and a ghost wandering, searching.

Now she found me.
