Friday Fiction - Wouldn't It Be Funny

While I happen to be writing this whole month I figured I'd return to my roots with a little FridayFictioneer. What a lovely picture, it tickles me. Plus, She and He  (links to their other stories above) finally got names (yay...)

Wouldn't It Be Funny

Heydan hated clowns. Ever since she was little and her parents thought it was a good idea to let her watch It on television. But this clown was part of the play so she remained calm.

Harry next to her whispred, “Wouldn’t it be funny...”


Suddenly, Harry was lifted and thrown into the old piano that sat dusty in the corner. The audience thought he was part of the act and applauded. The actors on stage, clueless.

Only Heydan knew, she pictured it, so it happened. His colorful foot wear adding to the effect.

“Why yes, yes it would be funny.” 



The Blog Hop has already begun, so you should all take a look inside and see what the other awesome writers do with this photo prompt. Don't forget to drop by Rochelle's blog for the rules.

  1. Dear Atiya,

    This puts me in mind a little Firestarter or Carrie. Harry better mind his P's and Q's.

    Welcome back!

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

    1. Harry usually is the one that gives her the idea. This time she got to him first.

  2. That's awesome. Love that last bit. "Why yes, yes it would be funny"

    1. If I hadn't gone over my limit by one word, I would have added a slow clap and some whistling.

    2. I think it was perfect as is - creepy good! And it did nothing to endear anyone to clowns either =)

    3. Thank you so much. I actually feel nothing for or against clowns. But it is becoming really apparent how many people don't like them. I just thought the clown part was a good lead in.

  3. Great take on the prompt. What a gift that little girl's got!

    1. Heydan and Harry are actually recurring characters who are adults. I think I should have left links to heir first and second appearance.

  4. Nice. I think we're on the same wavelength with our stories. :)

  5. Poor Harry, he didn't know an over-the-top sense of humor was one of Heydan's requirements in a friend.

    1. Actually he knows exactly what she can do. He usually is the instigator of a lot of mishaps, by giving her the idea in the first place.

  7. Heydan has just learned a new skill it seems. harry may not want to tempt her again.

    1. It's not a new skill for Heydan and Harry knows it. What's not said here is that he's been abusing her abilities for a while now without the notion that she might turn on him.

  8. "Carrie" came to my mind as well. Your opening line resonated with me as our younger daughter dislikes clowns as well.

    Welcome back.

    1. For the audience? Oh yes. Maybe even for Harry.

    1. Thank you. Though I wouldn't feel sorry for Harry. He most likely deserved it.

  14. ROTFLMAO! Would that we could all do that to annoying people--there was one in workshop this week that was a prime candidate for Heyden. Well done!
