“…That’s what a local told me.”
“Truth be told. That mangled piece of metal belonged to Sid from when he was a boy.”
“They looked for his body for months…. ”
“His ghost rides the bike through town on moonless nights.” A tourist stated. “We booked a room three extra nights – in case he rides.”
“I like to sniff out a good story,” the journalist told the shopkeeper.
“I won’t let the reporter know I concocted the ghost story…”
“It’s been good for business.” The city council members shook their heads.
Take Two: I wanted there to be more mystery so this is ending #2:
“I promise I won’t tell my white lie to that nosy guy writing the story.”
“It’s been good for business though.” The city council members shook their heads.
Okay would love your feedback. Take One or Take Two???
