When The Music Died – Friday Fictioneers Photo Prompt

Copyright David Stewart

Here is my 100 word, flash fiction piece.

When The Music Died.

Music fills the night, consuming my screams as the band plays on without me in the village Bandstand.

I crawl away from him, willing my battered and bruised body to get up.

I feel his breath on the back of my neck. He wraps his arm around my waist, pinning me to him.

His hand makes an air tight seal over my mouth and nose.


My chest burns.

Need air…           


Darkness closing in, as the drummer performs his solo.

I’m here…

A solitary tear slides down my cheek.

One beat…

Two beat…

No beat.

Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.

  1. Dear Heidi,

    Welcome to Friday Fictioneers. It’s a lot like the Hotel California. You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave.

    Quite a chilling write for your first foray. Well done. I hope to see you back.

  2. Very well written, Heidi! As so many have already said, it’s a very chilling tale but completely gripping. The way you’ve kept the musical theme going throughout is perfect. A wonderful first entry to this challenge! 🙂

      • The different interpretations are what makes it so much fun. I’m addicted well over my head. I should be concentrating on my third book but I’m spending so much time on WP – doing challenges! Your writing deserves to be read, so I hope you’ll keep up, too. 🙂
