Short Scary Stories-The Landscape Ghost by Selinda

My Personal Notes: First off, I wanted to see how many Short Scary Stories, I could personally find in the public blog posts. But my mission also was to find short stories, that were actually written quite well! Hopefully, helping some of these writers get noticed for the creativeness and hard work that wen't into their writing. And also, at the same time give some insight to people out there, that may of thought about writing, but just thought they couldn't do it, or nobody would ever notice them. I'm here to tell you all...that if you have a passion to write, or even if you just love reading in general, the opportunities today...are massive and you will be heard, you just have to get out there and do it! Now onto some Amazing Scary Stories.

It was around June of last summer when my brother started working for a landscaping company. Adrian had been on the job for only a month when he got the call. The home office sent him to the house of a regular customer who lived in the southside of town in the outskirts of San Antonio. Driving in the company van, Adrian wasn't familiar with this part of town and he was alone. The area was remote. "Man I'm out in the boonies," he whispered to himself. All he could see were trees and a few scattered houses.

Adrian was sure he had missed the turn when he finally found the country road. It came to a dead end. He was relieved to see a man waving at him standing in the front yard. The old man motioned for him to follow him inside. Adrian thought it was odd that he had led him inside his home instead of to the backyard. Instead he pointed to a heavy looking credenza in the living room. The man wanted him to move it to the back wall. Looking at his slight frame, Adrian knew that the owner would not have been able to budge it. Adrian was glad to help and the old man was grateful. Adrian followed him toward the kitchen and he was led to the back door. He worked that afternoon removing weeds and pruning various parts of the backyard. Adrian could tell that for the most part, the yard had been well taken care oif in the past.

The next day the manager received an irrate call from a woman. "Why did you landscape our yard? I already had cancelled services." The manager was somewhat confusd. "Mam' we received a call from your address to come out and do some work. Besides, you already paid us." The woman argued thar no one had called the landscaping company. She demanded to see proof of payment. Adrin returned that afternoon and handed her the check. The lady stared at the personal check. She remained silent for several moments and then looked at Adrian in disbelief. There were tears in her eyes. "That's my father's check.......that's his signature. I don't understand. How can this be? My father died three years ago."

My brother Adrian, once a hardnose skepic left that afternoon a believer in the paranormal. There was no doubt in his mind, he had spent an afternoon with a ghost. And he still had the check to prove it!

Now go and write some amazing Short Scary Stories
