Baffled

Families were enjoying their Sunday at the amusement park.
As she waited for her turn to board the two-seater cabin of the next ride, she realized that she would be alone.
There were couples – husband-wife, brother-sister, parent-child etc waiting.

When she boarded her cabin and was about to shut the door, a little boy said, “Rosy, wait for me!”
He entered and sat beside her taking her hand in his.
She was baffled.

How did the little boy know the name that her boyfriend addressed her with?

She hadn’t been called ‘Rosy’ ever since her boyfriend died 10 years ago...

What do you think happened next? Have you ever faced any such situation where strangers knew your name? Do share in the comments below.

  1. Great beginning for a sci-fi or ghost story

  2. Can there be a rational explanation, or is this proof of reincarnation, or a spirit world? Great setup.

  3. I'm a little creeped out by the boy, but maybe he's just a happy messenger from the boyfriend :)

  5. Yes, I have, while I was at work. It had the rational explanation that they had recognised me from a photo. How dull!
    Your story on the other hand is far from dull. The really creepy bit is when the small boy takes her hand in both his. I bet her boyfriend used to do that.

  7. Reincarnation. Guess she'll have to wait another ten years before he's proper boyfriend material again.

  10. A good beginning! That happened to me in college. I was new to campus, to the city, and to using my formal name. The woman who greeted me by my nickname (and known by no one yet) was not in any of my classes. She turned out to be in a religious cult.
