Rita Mae's Legacy
In response to Friday Fictioneers challenge

Something terrible happened that night, the night Rita Mae came screaming out her front door covered in  blood.
Bud had bled out right there in the hall. We all thought Rita Mae had done it.
She kept babbling about her great granddaddy and some curse. She never was the same after that night and they never found the killer.
Some nights I sit here and watch lights moving around her house.

She never remarried, said her great granddaddy wouldn't like it. She's a mite touched in the head, now. Funny thing, though. The knife that killed her man? Great Granddaddy's.

  1. Dear Margo,

    Welcome to Friday Fictioneers.

    I take it Great Granddaddy is no longer among the living as we know them. Sounds like an open and shut case of possession. Well done.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  2. A paranormal mystery, or is Rita Mae clinically insane? Who really was the killer? She wasn't tried for it, it seems. Why? We may never know (unless you write some more). :)

  3. I love the neighborhood legend feel of this! The first sentence is an attention-grabber.

    1. I can picture someone sitting in a rocking chair on the porch and watching the whole scene unfold.

  5. Huge villas with grand porches are a perfect setting for paranormal activity.
