Daddy Isn't Dead (a 100-word freaky flash fiction short story) by Oren Shafir

Flash fiction horro - Daddy isn't dead imageWas it normal that Jonathon still talked to his Daddy? Janice wasn't sure of anything anymore. Ever since the accident, she felt as though she were floating. Even her little boy seemed visitant and distant. 

"Honey, does it make you feel better to talk to Daddy?" she asked.

"No."

"Then, why do you do it, sweetheart?"

"It makes him feel better."

He looked so serious.

Janice wiped a tear away, tried to focus, but everything seemed to blur.

"Honey, I'm worried about you," she said.

"I'm worried about you too, Mommy,"

She took a deep breath.

"Sweetheart, you know that Daddy died in that car accident we were in, don't you?"

"No Mommy, Daddy didn't die. We did."
