The Guilty Conscience

Words 93

 “I miss you Ray.”

“I thought you would be thrilled.”

“You know I don’t like paper work. There’s insurance, bank…you didn’t fix the kitchen tap properly, and…”

“And what?”

“The…the car won’t start.”

“You still haven’t got it serviced?”

“I meant to…”

“Liar!”

“I…I hate being alone.”

“Too little, too late…”

“Help me Ray.”

“How can I? I am dead, remember?”

“Ray…!”

“Find someone else. You are young beautiful and rich.”

“That’s the problem.”

“What?”

“What if he bumps me off to get his hands on my money?”

“Not everyone is like you.”
