Interesting paranormal ghostly story. Very short...about 9 pages of story (rest is cover, front matter).
We know it's a ghost story (from the subtitle). We know just hints of the circumstances and story world throughout from the point-of-view character. It surprises me that the "rules" of this paranormal tale keep changing, i.e., 'I ate earlier,' [I lie] (breakfast)' [as if implying she cannot or does not eat], then they're out to eat together for a late lunch and 'we eat.' Other changes keep cropping up.... two references of "I'm light as a feather, insubstantial"....but real enough to be able to touch him, kiss him, shampoo him, feed him....take his hand.
I love paranormal fiction. I find it easy to follow and embrace alternative 'realities'....but something about this one bugged...likely because the rules were in flux. I was surprised by the wrap-up...with him forgetting her. 'he's already forgetting' and 'he's already forgetting me.' Seemed odd (though I did my best to understand why)....but the only hints were that she thought "I'm paying a high price."
It did make me think. Hoping to understand what some of the vague references meant. Not entirely sure where the truth lay (newspaper article? or her comment about who left who at the altar?).... and what was misconception. Hmmmmm. I'm confident fans of ghost stories, Gothic fans will appreciate this short more than I did.
