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.

Where is Santa?
:-| This kid definitely has something going on in his head -- and I don't think it's anything as benign as Aspergers! Creepy, sir. Very creepy.

Lack of Character in Ferguson
Living in a civilized society is not a right, but a social contract. To be a member, you agree to abide by the rules of law. To insure our collective safety and freedom we commission officers to enforce those laws, allow them to carry arms and to use deadly force if necessary. Rioting, burning and…

Alive and Well
Micheal, Great sentiments! I can relate to all of them except "time spent merely existing". There is evidence of God all around you that can be found with a humble heart. You will get old and job experiences that make you feel alive will be gone before you know it. You were never created to…

Thanks for your input RJ! I wish you worked for my department! Truth, reason, and common sense are in short supply today when it comes to these issues.
