100 Word Wednesday: Week 34 – Arch’s Riff

The riff went on and on. Arch considered himself a virtuoso, and even though the rest of the band saw as a gratuitous act of self-indulgence, there wasn’t a lot they could do other than let Arch have his head and bore them all silly.

Arch had his own set of groupies and would remind the band that if it wasn’t for him, they’d still be playing to no audience at all.

Tonight, the riff went twenty minutes. His fans yelling and screaming, his fellow band members having had enough left the stage leaving Arch lost in his own thing.

    Arch sounds very selfish, like he should be not only promoting himself, but his band members too in his riff. I don’t blame them for walking away if this his constant behaviour!

    I’m sure it’s easy to *get into a zone* when playing, but in your story — the lead guitarist definitely lets it go to his head … seemingly, much to the fans delight! Looks like he’s in for a solo act for the future 😉 Thank you so much for stopping by again this week and joining us ❤
