If Fates Allow

Loren at I Saw Lightening Fall hosts a Christmas Ghost Story compilation this time every year. 100 words, no more, no less!  The song Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas never sounded much like a joyous celebration of the season to me, a little heartbreaking actually. But it did serve as inspiration to this merry little tale.

 

“Have yourself a merry little Christmas now…”

The needle lifted, retreated, lowered.

Pop, hiss – music…

“Have yourself, a Merry Little Christmas…”

The flag, neatly folded above the mantle, had looked so crisp on his coffin.

She wore her best dress, and played their favorite song. One hand held his picture, the other, his pistol.

The song played on; “friends dear to us, will be near to us, once more.”

Till death do us part? She wondered, and pulled the trigger.

“Someday soon, we’ll be together, if fates allow…”

The needle lifted, retreated, lowered……

They found her New Year’s Eve.

For a less gloomy experience here's a new take on A Christmas Carol.  Thanks for reading and a merry Christmas to all!

Once again, Michael, a simple, caring action probably helped more than any medical intervention.

Michael, you have not lost your touch. :-) PS. Last time I rode in one of your "cadillacs", I was a pretty good girl. I only vomited a little bit. The blood stayed in a contained area. Aren't you proud of me? LOL. PS I thanked Stephanie and the other EMT too. Take care Buddy.…
