Friday Fictioneers: The Church




The Church


12-year-old Perry Kelly thought he might play hard man and take a few selfies inside ‘the Church that no one went to’ due to it’s reputation of ghostly Priests thinking it would be cool to show his school friends.


Inside it looked like any other Church. He laughed at the townsfolk.

He heard a noise and ran out the door vowing never to return.


Inside the Church a homeless man lit some candles for heat and wondered why a chill had came from outside. As far as he knew he was the only soul who entered here.


(Hope you all like my story this week. At the moment I have been so busy with my ECDL studies and with writing my book and I haven’t been keeping up with commenting on everyone’s else’s work which I apologise for and thank you all for your continued support, feedback and patience. I will catch up on all your stories as soon as I can. :-))

  1. Dear Lisa,

    Love it. It didn’t take much to scare Perry off, did it?

    That was fun. I loved the way the courage of the boy quickly turned into fear at the slightest hint of trouble.

  3. granonine says:

    He was brave until he thought he heard the boogey man πŸ™‚

  4. 4963andypop says:

    Sounds like the homeless guy was as startled as the boy.

    The real tragedy is the abandoned church. Its sad, that any place, where people for decades and centuries communed, and shared pain and joy and hope, should now be so empty and still.

  5. Dale says:

    Perry is a bit of a wimp, methinks…

  6. Iain Kelly says:

    Perry isn’t so tough after all, but no great loss to the homeless guy!

  7. Violet Lentz says:

    Oooo I do like it! Would be awesome if there was a ghost in one of his pictures though….
