Written for the Friday Fictioneers. A story, about musicians playing to the crowd, begins after the photo.
A Minor Adjustment
Smoke drifted through the small club, emanating from handmade candles at the tiny tables. Servers in tee-shirts and sandals delivered organic wines and bowls of endamame to the customers. Folk singers, Gill and Scott, finished the last chord of ‘Puff The Magic Dragon’ to enthusiastic applause.
Gill watched the grinning crowd. “I’m still feeling nervous about this,” he said.
“It’s understandable,” said Scott, wiping sweat from his palms. “I think we’re okay.”
“What’s next on the set list?”
“My Sweet Lord.”
Gill choked, “Seriously? How about, ‘Dark Star’ instead?”
They strummed the initial chords, and the crowd of vampires smiled appreciatively.
Each week, the Friday Fictioneers join to make music with their literary impulse, prompted to write 100 words of flash fiction by a photo. Thanks to Bjord Rundberg for a great photo. When I saw Rochelle’s story included a reference to George Harrison, I just HAD to follow suit. Hope you enjoyed. Here’s this week’s prompt and Rochelle’s story: http://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com/2014/04/23/25-april-2014/
