My 100 word story!

Posted Wednesday June 15


‘It has to be there somewhere’ said Percy. Percy was a pianist of note, and he was performing at the Pig in the Pulpit Piano Bar when things went wonbly-woo. ‘Come out come out wherever you are’ he yelled as he searched through the piano strings. He had been playing The Flight of the Bumble Bee when B flat went missing. Plinkity-plonk-plinkity-plonk-plinkity... nothing... plonkity-plink-plonkity... nothing!  

C hadn’t seen it; neither had A. F told him that it had, erm, gone off!

In fact, halfway through the piece B flat realised that being a bumble bee would be far more fun so off he buzzed off to make honey.


Friday Fictioneers. Thanks to Rochelle for hosting and John Nixon for the mad photo prompt!

  24. From what i remember of music b flat is one of the better notes to lose ;) a harpsichord-ic delight!

  25. B flat is an ungenerous note to say about anyone.

  26. Chuckles! Like the light-hearted take Keith! And only a musically inclined can pen this! Great!

  29. What a fun take on the prompt! We need more bees, so it's the right decision. By the way, my husband is a professional keyboard player and sometimes has a real problem with the notes B and B-flat, so your story particularly spoke to me. From now on, whenever he gets those notes muddled, I'll think of bees.
