It haunted his sleep. It flashed into his mind intermittently. This troubled him. One morning after the strange episode, he decided to capture its stillness. He stood up and went to his studio. He took a deep breath, closed his eyes for some minutes and opened the door.

With brush strokes here and there and few blotches, the painting was done; only he couldn’t understand why a man stood by the seaside watching a woman halfway into the water with her hands stretched out to him.

The painting was bought by a detective. It was a clue to a crime.

    It is an awesome haunted story with a positive twist at the end. Your protagonist is blessed to have such a gift of a haunted mind that will help solve a crime. Well done in a very few words, Thompson. Thumbs up!

    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!
