This is a flash fiction story of me transforming to Ghost Rider on a Halloween night.

Ghost Rider Takes Back the Night

It is a dark and cool Halloween night in New York City. At the Trinity Church Cemetery in Harlem, I am on my knees praying at my deceased friend’s tombstone. This is the sixth anniversary of his death and I still could not believe that he is gone. As I rise up, there is something glowing in the back of me. To my surprise, it is a mysterious black motorcycle in mint condition.

“What the hell?” I murmur.

I approach the motorcycle and walk around it cautiously. There is a fiery glow emanating from it, but I do not feel any heat. Curious about the glow, I slowly touch the motorcycle. Then flames bursts from the ground and ignites me. A transformation is happening. My body is going through so many emotions like pain and suffering. I want to scream, but no sound is coming out of my mouth. The motorcycle is also undergoing a radical transformation. It changes from a conventional looking motorcycle to one that appears both powerful and high-tech on flaming wheels.

Seconds later, I am a flaming-headed motorcyclist known as The Ghost Rider. I leap on the motorcycle and begin speeding down Broadway. I am traveling so fast down the smooth energetic streets of Manhattan without having any fear in the world. On this Halloween, the living spirit of vengeance known as Ghost Ride is taking back the night!

If you were searching for him, he was here with me and we were both listening to Chicago together.
Think I like my home based Ghost better, he is helping clean the mess today....
Any way, good luck with Nicholas Cage aka Cappola.
