“Why is your hand so cold?” Lia asked as she wrapped her hands around Kate’s, her lifetime best friend.

It was Halloween. Kate had decided to dress as the Bride and Lia as Harley Quinn. It was an unusual combo but who cares? It was fine as long as they enjoyed themselves.

“I know you’re dressed as the dead but why are you so cold just like the dead?! Want to wear my jacket?” Lia looked seriously concerned as she spoke. Kate always caught the cold easily.

“I’m fine. You should worry more about yourself.” Kate replied as she pulled her hand away from Lia. She had never done that before. Lia was a little surprised but didn’t pay it much mind.

“Why do I need to worry? I’m hardly ever in trouble.” She said as she pouted.

“Well that boyfriend of yours is nothing short of a trouble I say.” Kate replied, almost instantly, as if the answer was ready in her mind from long ago.

“Hey! Nate never bothers me with anything and you know that!” Lia refuted as she remembered her almost perfect boyfriend. The only flaw he had would be his unwillingness to mingle with her best friend.

“Funny how the same person bothered me to death a while ago.” Kate said as she gave a hollow laugh. Lia couldn’t process what she had just heard so she just stood there as she looked at Kate blankly.

“Lia!” Came a shout from behind her, pulling her out of her thoughts. It was a voice all too familiar to her. Nate. She turned around to see her boyfriend running towards her. “What’re you doing here by yourself? I was worried.”

“By myself? No, Kate is-” She turned to Kate and stopped speaking halfway, finding no one beside her.

“Kate?” Nate uttered the name like a whisper, his expression turning into one of pity. “Kate is long gone, Lia. She is dead.”

Lia stood there, stupefied. Indeed, she had forgotten. But now, no matter what she did, she couldn’t forget Kate’s words from moments ago.

It is an intriguing story, Puja. So mysterious. Paul is right. Hopefully, Lia will pay attention to all the hints her dead friend said. Well done.

Ohhhhhhh, a spooky question rests on what does “bothered to death mean”? Is Lia’s boyfriend as innocent as he comes across? Thank you, Miss Puja for leaving us on a cliffhanger of a paradox!

Welcome to Voice.club, Puja. I like your scary story which seems to be a mixture between a romantic triangle drama, a children’s story with an imaginary friend, and a classical ghost story. It leaves space for the reader’s imagination to ponder a continuation.

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
