The Death And Life Of Bill – by Hugh W. Roberts
“Will your book ever get published?” Peggy asked her husband.
“When it’s ready,” replied Bill.
“How long have you been writing it?
“Since I was seven.”
“Seven? What’s it about?”
“Death and life.”
“What? Does it have a title?”
“Never-ending. That’s it.”
“Bit of a dumb title,” laughed Peggy.
7-years later, after Bill’s death, Peggy finally began reading her husband’s unpublished book online and soon realised it was his life story, but with a twist. He’d predicted his own death.
But the biggest shock to Peggy was that Bill’s never-ending story continued from beyond his grave.
Written for the 99-word flash fiction challenge hosted by Charli Mills at the Carrot Ranch.
