Summary: A sudden sound takes David by surprise.
Notes: I missed the challenge of writing these...

Thud.

The noise made him start, a circuit board slipping from his fingers. Not that unexpected noises were a rarity, though the lack of pain following was. Heavy impacts from distant corners, however; he could count those on one hand. One finger.

The corners were dark: no windows, just one stark light above his head and the glow from the open elevator behind. Almost impossible to see anything. Almost, because was that—

No. Couldn’t be.

A fleeting face, familiar, inspiring a wave of nausea. A flash of green - not a guard, someone long dead.

Gone.

He must’ve imagined it...

Now, I've heard of ghost's going bump in the night, but I've never heard of one making a heavy landing. Hopefully a friendly face has turned up for him at last. Nicely written. The story and emotion flow really well :)

Oddly, I'd not been thinking of ghosts in that sense until you said that and now I'm a little worried, haha... whenever I dream about ghosts, they're always vivid green!

But thank you, that's also given me a bit of a dialogue idea for later. :3
