“Hey, Buzz.   Don’t let me down, man.”

“Have a little faith, Jubal.   I’ll be right there at your side, like always.”

‘What about that time in Memphis…?”

“That was you, Jube.”

“Sorry, Buzz, you’re right.  That’s on me.  Even, okay?”

“We’re always even, old friend.  Remember, I’ll always be there, Jube.  On your left….”

“Buzz here yet, Vin?   We’re on in an hour.”

“Real sorry, Jube.   Buzz was killed in a car wreck last night.   His old lady just called.   He was outside Houston.”

“What?   She’s crazy, Vinny.   Buzz called me today.   Said he’d be by my side… like always…”

Many thanks to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting Friday Fictioneers.



When I was a kid I wanted to be an "atomic" scientist. Not anything my mother expected of me. Well, I became a scientist, just not an atomic one.

  1. Sounds as though Buzz was going to be there, one way or another. Good job.


  2. Dear Lucy,

    Someone’s not telling the truth or Buzz was making a very long distance call. Nicely played.



  3. elappleby says:

    Sweet story. Nice dialogue. I’m sure Buzz is still there, by his side like always 🙂

  4. Very touching story. In times of despair look into the mirror and you’ll never be alone, cause in your eyes and in your smile you hold memories of your loved ones.

  5. Shandra says:

    That was a great story. Truly, Friends forever. Wonderful use of the prompt. Shandra

  6. The friendship shown in this story is amazing. Ghost or no ghost, living or dead, long distance or short drive. Thank you.

  7. Dee says:

    I think Buzz is there, right by his side, as always. Nice dialogue, well done

  8. ahtdoucette says:

    Oo, very creepy yet matches the feel of the photo.

  9. Lucy, Good story. Buzz may very well be there in memory or spirit.. Well written with good dialogue. 🙂


  10. Nan Falkner says:

    Really, really good story – gave me goosebumps! Good job! He’ll be next to Buzz from now on! Very good story and good dialogue! Nan 🙂

Seriously, tell me what you think

Odyssey of a Novice Writer

Aspiring novelist. Avid reader of fiction. Reviewer of books. By day, my undercover identity is that of meek, mild-mannered legal assistant, Kate Loveton, working in the confines of a stuffy corporate law office; by night, however, I'm a super hero: Kate Loveton, Aspiring Novelist and Spinner of Tales. My favorite words are 'Once upon a time... ' Won't you join me on my journey as I attempt to turn a hobby into something more?
