Here we are for another week. Today we’re touring an old mansion reported to be haunted. We’re seated in the music room. We’re gathered here to discuss our original stories for the week. This is the Friday Fictioneers group. Our hostess for the gathering is the talented and gracious author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The challenge for each of us this week and every week is to write a story with no more than 100 words, not including the title. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was provided by Bjorn Rudberg. Thanks, Bjorn.

To read the other stories by group members, just click on the link given below, then on the little blue frog in the blue box.

The link for this week’s stories is as follows:

Genre: Speculative Humor Fiction

Word Count: 98 Words


The old Bartlett mansion was reported to be haunted. Jed Bartlett, the inherited owner, had never gone there to actually find out.

One day he convinced his wife to accompany him. They were determined to spend the night.

About midnight they heard a sound from the music room. Entering, they found a misty presence playing a cello. They sat to listen.

Two weeks later, the first concert was scheduled. The posters read: Β Cello concert by spirit of Julia Bartlet, 1840-1920–To be held at Bartlet mansion–Saturday, 12 midnight–Proceeds going to Planktown Hospital where Miss Bartlet died.

  1. It’s kind of a funny story. I ghost who has no problem performing and letting her relatives make money off her. Maybe having a crowd masked the ghost happy. Interesting take and well written πŸ™‚
