Friday Fictioneers – The Piano

14 06 2013

Hi everyone. Back again for another dose of Friday Fiction, 100 words based on a photo prompt. Just can’t seem to stay away for long. If you’d like to join in and share the addiction, why not have a look at Rochelle’s blog to find out all about it. Thank you to John Nixon for the wonderful photo.

The Piano

A wave of silence swept over the astounded audience, broken only by the steadily decreasing footfall of heavy feet, and the slightly muffled pleas coming from the piano.  Even before it could settle, the silence was replaced by another wave; one of cheering and clapping so unrestrained as to be heard in the nearby streets.

They really hadn’t liked the clown. He was vulgar and amateurish, and quite possibly drunk. So after he invited the local celebrity linebacker up on stage to assist him, and then tried to hypnotise him into dancing like a chicken, the outcome was hardly unexpected.
