Healing Wish

She clawed in frustration as the moon shone upon the grave; her fingertips soaked in dirt and blood. A hundred years had passed since the ghosts had spoken to her about Eric, a hundred years had passed since she last ate or drank a bottle of wine. She heard the owls screeching as the wind howledΒ incessantly, causing hair at the back of her neck to stand up in alarm. She screamed as two hands jerked and pushed her off the grave.

“You wretched piece of urban shit how dare you come and touch this grave!”

Camellia spat into the ground in pure disgust as she attempted to smooth out her prussian blue dress; “I don’t need your permission you filthy, lying bitch!”

No sooner had she spoken, a voice hoarse from breathing underground sounded from the grave. Both women stared in horror at the sight that welcomed them in the dead of the night.

“I am so bloody tired of you two bickering each and every night! Now if you will excuse me I need to go back and rest for the next hundred years.” The corpse flashed an evil grin before it disappeared back into the grave.

“My goodness! Did you see that! He didn’t even bother to invite us in!”

Camellia laughed out hard and punched playfully on her arm. She realized that they were both being stupid, fighting over a man who had been dead for the past hundred years. She winked as they joined hands to craft a healing wish:

  1. It started out spooky, but left me laughing in the end. This was so eerie and funny at the same time. I hope they were successful finding their healing and left the old bastard rotting by himself as he wished.

  2. Sanaa, I’m laughing so hard that I have tears in my eyes. I love how the spookiness and cattiness morphed into so much more… Sometimes, we need a corpse to point out our stupidity, to remind us that we can only truly grow if we join the best bits of us with others, and move forward.

    I love it when healing is creepy and hysterical!

  4. Love it! The vivid and striking image under the moonlight, the eerie sound of laughter in the night, and depiction of characters’ pettiness so closely resembles our world. By the way, I enjoyed the passionate name calling between the characters; a slight departure from your usually calm and loving poetry. ? Delightful combination of horror and humour. ✨?✨

  5. Your story was great. Maybe he will get some rest now and the girls can go out to cast their spells as friends. The spell was beautiful too! Hugs, Rasz
