The driver had spun off the road decades ago and the grass climbed the old Ford’s wheels as each rainfall it grew like vines to the window sills in the cow’s pasture. The current farmer, not able to haul the truck from his fields, began to mow around it with respect for its rusted history; the story was, witnesses 50-years ago, didn’t see the driver leave. Upon examining the wreck they’d been shocked to see the driver’s seat empty, and now and then, the farmer’s daughter watched the stars from the front seat: she swore a young man in suspenders peered at the sky beside her, his hand grazing hers.

      Thanks so much Lynn. It’s sweet and sad, kind of what I was going for. The daughter has empathy, or perhaps to her, he is very real, despite being a ghost of a boy her age. Hope you’re doing great 🙂

    Oo, I like the mystery here, and also the sweet ghost story. She doesn’t seem spooked by seeing the ghost, which is nice; I bet he likes the company.

      Thanks Joy. I think to her he is very real even if he’s just a lost spirit. Or maybe he’s close to her age and she feels sorry for her him, that he’ll never get this sweet moment alive. Glad you liked it 🙂
