August 3: Flash Fiction Challenge – The New Bell

august-3

August 3, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) use sound to create a story. Just as you might “see” a scene unfold, think about how it might sound. Even one sound to set the tone is okay. Go where you hear the prompt lead. Feel free to experiment.

 

Bang, crash, push, heave, ugh!

“You got it yet?”

“No.”

It grated as they pushed it further. The grinding rang in their ears.

“A little further?”

“Do we have to?”

“Stop whinging, now grow a pair and push.”

Breathing heavily, they huffed and puffed, then huffed some more.

One looked at the other, sighed deeply and then took purposefully hold.

Gradually they made progress. It moved begrudgingly, inching forward resisting their every breath consuming effort.

With a resounding squeal of metal on metal, they moved it into place.

The new shiny bell swung gracefully. It would ring out anew.

  1. Thought at first it was a piano! Hubby and I couldn’t move mine when I had it.

  2. What a great lot of sounds. Glad I didn’t have to help with the moving.

    Ha! The joy the new bell rings in I hope it worth the exertion to get in place.
