Chrys Fey here taking over Kelly Hashway’s blog for this Friday Feature and I’m not alone. I have with me the MC of my short story, Ghost of Death. Did I forget to mention she’s a ghost? Yup, she is. Let’s get started, shall we?
*eyes widen* You can see me?
Of course, I can see you. I’m the one who wrote your story, remember?
Oh, that’s right. I’m sorry. I have ghost-brain. You know, like pregnancy-brain?
I get it. Do you mind if I ask you a few questions? Our readers haven’t met a ghost before and they’re dying (no pun intended) to know more about you.
Sure, fire away!
1. How did you realize you were dead?
I saw my corpse. That’s a pretty big sign, wouldn’t you say? *sighs* I’m sorry. I’m a little testy, right now.
2. I’d be testy, too. What was your first thought upon seeing your body?
I thought it was a dream or hallucination. Or maybe I was having a mental breakdown. I didn’t want to believe it. Who would? After the shock wore off, I was pissed because there’s so much I still want to do. Who wants to be dead when your life is just supposed to be starting?
3. What was your life like before you were a ghost?
I was a college student going for my journalist degree. I had just won an internship to Globe Magazine and had the dream of being the best journalist ever. On Wednesdays, I’d go to a small pizzeria with my friends, and on Fridays, we’d go to Galaxy Bar where I’d drink a few Wormholes and would get sweaty with my boyfriend, Cody, on the dance floor.
4. Do you recall anything about your murder?
Nothing. Yada, Yent. Zilch. I wish I did, though. I hate knowing my killer is out there roaming free. Maybe even planning to kill another college student.
5. I hope not! Can you tell us about the detective on your case?
Detective Avrianna Heavenborn is a real bad ass. No one dares to cross her. Not only is she fierce, but people also fear her because they think she’s a freak. That’s a story for another time, though.
6. What it like to be a ghost?
It sucks! I can’t touch Cody or hug my mom. I can‘t see my reflection in the mirror or talk to my best friend. But there are a few perks. For example, I can stare at people, right in front of their faces, and I don’t have to worry about being rude. I can even walk through doors, which is a neat trick.
7. What do you miss the most?
So much. I think it’s the littlest things that I took for granted that I miss the most, though. Like the smell of Cody’s cologne, my mom’s homemade cookies, and fresh cut grass.
I think I’d miss smells, too. Like the smell of flowers and baking bread.
Mm. And taste. Like the taste of pizza. That’s a big one!
Oh yes, pizza. Our readers are going to have to read Ghost of Death to understand your obsession with pizza.
Definitely! Well, I gotta fly. I need to see if Avrianna has any leads. Chow!
