The Horror of Shakespeare #23 - The course of true love never did run smooth

Every day in October I will be posting a horror/paranormal drabble (100 word story) inspired by a Shakespeare Quote. 
Hello again, I have a ghostly tale for you this evening.

The course of true love never did run smooth

Benjamin watched Melanie take bite into her cream cake and sighed.

"Seriously, do you have to do that?" Leo complained.

"But I love her."

"She's alive, you're dead, get over it."

Even as Leo spoke Melanie began to go a funny colour, making odd croaking sounds.

"Well maybe not," Leo said, "she's choking."

If Benjamin had had a heart it would have been pounding. Maybe there was a chance? If Melanie died… but no, he could not let that happen. Reaching out a spark jumped from his finger to Melanie and a piece of unchewed choux flew across the room.

If anyone would like to join in, please do!

  1. Therefore, fair Melanie, question his desires,
    Know of your heart, examine well your blood,
    Whether, if you can endure the cream cake,
    Chewing flaky crumbs to the cold embrace of death.
