A Ghostly Paranormal Horror Short Story
Mel has a curse: she can see what’s invisible to most humans. We call them ghosts and demons. She calls them living nightmares.
When she was five, she had her own ghost. A good ghost. She swore to never leave his side, but over time, he scared her. She pushed him away. She broke her promise.
Now well into her twenties, Mel meets her old ghost again. And this time, he’s brought the darkness with him to prove his point…
…you don’t break a promise with a ghost.
I chose to read this short story after receiving a free e-copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
This story is very short but still packs a punch. Mel promised her ghost when she was young that she’d always be his friend, but she broke her promise. Now she’s in her twenties and he has decided that he doesn’t want to be ignored any longer. Her good ghost isn’t so good anymore…
I’ve always liked S.M. Boyce’s writing and that’s still the case in Origins which gives a little background to her horror novel Ari. I haven’t read Ari yet but I’m going to have to find time to read it. I enjoy a well written horror story!

When S. M. Boyce graduated with a degree in creative writing, she realized that made her well-qualified for serving French fries. It would take years of writing hundreds of thousands of words of all kinds before she became the fantasy and horror novelist she is today.
