It was late at night and I was driving down the highway. In my headlights, I saw something white, human-like, moving by the roadside. Apparently a ghost!

There I was, dressed only in my thin nightgown, alone, in the middle of nowhere, at 2 AM. I was desperate and totally helpless. And freezing!

By midnight, my wife got tired and decided to go to bed in our camping trailer, but I decided to keep driving a few hours more. With little traffic and nice music on the radio, I enjoyed the peacefulness.

I made a big loop around the phantom, but when I heard a call for help, I turned around.

I hesitated to wave the motorcycle down, but I had to. I explained my situation to him, he told me to hop up behind him, and we took off.

After a few hours’ driving, I needed to tinkle. I stopped the car and stepped outside in the dark for a minute. An hour later, a motorcycle approached me from behind. But instead of going past me, he slowed down and drove next to me. When I looked out, I was terrified! An ugly, red-haired, bearded, viking-looking biker was staring aggressively at me. And behind him on the MC, I saw a ghost in a white, flapping sheet! She looked as horrifying as him, waving and screaming like a mad person. And even more scary was that she had taken on the appearance of my wife!

When we caught up with the car, I drove close so that the man would see his wife and stop. But he just kept driving!

I screamed at my husband to stop the car, but he just stared at me with blank eyes. As if looking at a complete stranger!
The problem started when he stopped the car. I woke up and thought he had found a place where we would stay for the night. When I stepped outside the camper to talk to him, the car door slammed shut and he took off without me!

I love this story, Christer. It’s so believable and far out, all at the same time. And I love the narration, from three points of view. Wonder when hubby will find out that he’s missing something/someone? Hope he’s more observant than many men, or he might not even notice. For those who are fairly new to this club, that last sentence was an “inside joke” referring to the story Lighting His Fire… Read more »

Loved your story with three narrating voices! I enjoyed the description of the characters from each point of view. It felt almost like reading a play. The tragi-comic element is the cherry on the cake. One wonders if the MC took on a ghost or the husband had a few drinks which obliterated his judgement or even if he was just pretending in order to leave his wife behind… ?

I like the writing style, Christer. It has created a ‘voice’ for the reader. Fantastic!

I like how this was broken up into three narrators, Christer. To me it almost read like a screenplay. This was a fun story, I enjoyed this!

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!
