The Passing of Mrs Parker Woodburn – E J Lamprey
3700 word Ghost Story
Mrs PW was quite put out about being murdered. It wasn’t that her life had been particularly exciting, but that gave no-one the right to steal it in any, and indeed every, way. Her quite natural resentment spilled over into the afterlife, which in itself was not at all what she had expected…
Included in the Collection ‘The Day Death wore Boots’
Mrs Polly Parker Woodburn rather treasured her eccentricities. She collected them with care, giving each possibility careful consideration before either discarding it or polishing it to a point where it could be introduced to the select society of which she was an undisputed leader. Success was measured by the genteel envy of her social rivals when they heard of ‘Polly’s latest’. She was quite rich enough to get away with the wildest of excesses but would never have entertained such – just little, charming, foibles. Her personal favourite was her little death book and every night, after perfecting her appearance at bedtime so that she would be a truly handsome corpse, she wrote into the book the name of the person she had decided would be the principal heir of her substantial estate, should she die during the night.
