99 Words – The One Who Left The Dress


August 8, 2022, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about “the one who left the dress.” A 1940s-era dress still hangs in an abandoned house. Who left it and why? You can take any perspective and write in any genre. It can be a ghost story. Or not. Go where the prompt leads!


Closets are small or non-existant, most of us don’t have a lot of clothes. My sister, brother and I share a dresser, we each have one drawer and the 4th is everyone’s socks.

Except for the closet under the stairs which has some clothes that no one wears.

Who gave us those things?

Why has mama never worn this blue dress, did this belong to her sister who died after getting so sick.

Was she afraid the dress would make her sick too and she would have to move away?

The doctor said grandma is doing very well today.
