Flash Fiction March O7 2017

This week’s photo prompt is provided by Mike Vore. Thank you Mike for our photo prompt!

To play a sonata was her wish, in the presence of the striking stranger who was at their house on an invitation by her father when they met at a pleasure trip. She was intrigued by his persona and the beguiling smile he gave when he spoke articulately.

Her father and this charming stranger conversed on a diversity of subjects and she listened in rapt attention until dinner was served which he relished and praised profusely with courteous manners.

Her father requested her to end the night with her performance on the piano which was covered in a black leather encasement. She removed it with expertise and lay her slender fingers on the keyboard to conjure a sonorous rhapsody which reached its crescendo and then ended with élan. Her eyes met his appreciative gaze, fluttered timorously and what transpired between them was a story yet to unfold.

  1. Wonderful story! It leaves a lot to my imagination! I believe they fall in love.. I noticed you haven’t linked up your story to the InLinkz Story Board. Do you need instructions on how to do that? It allows a lot more people to be able to read your story. If you do need instructions, I will need your email address.

  2. Beautiful story. You have a lot of ‘whichs’ which (grin) might be better removed. There is so much information in each sentence that I can’t take it all in at once. For me, it is awkward. That said, it is a beautiful story with such a promising ending.

    1. Thank you so much for your constructive criticism and pointing out the ‘whichs’. I wrote the piece in a hurry and didn’t check its properly . Next time I’ll be more careful. And thanks again for stopping by.
