The winner of the Ghost Stories Flash Fiction Contest is Kindra Coates. I decided to combine the prizes into a "prize pack". She will receive A Ghost Hunters Season One DVD, T-shirt and key chain. Special thanks goes to New Media Strategies for sponsoring the contest. The winning story is below. Congratulations, Kindra!
I sighed, grabbed the bear, and marched up the stairs. Thomas trailed behind me. I pointed to the box labeled toys that was still taped shut. "Explain that, Einstein."
That shut his trap about not having a ghost.
Things are quieter now that we've finished with the remodeling. We put a small bed and lots of old fashioned dolls and stuffed animals in the grandkids' toy room. Sometimes we'll find the teddy bear that hit Thomas in another room. I don't hear her crying as often now, but when she does I wonder if we need to get a priest or medium or ghost hunter to help her. But most of all I think of the mother she's crying for. How could any woman leave her child behind?
