Another Flash Fiction Challenge from TerribleMinds:
The theme is “Bullies and the Bullied” – 100 word limit
The wood of his guitar splintered into a hundred pieces of spruce. He could do nothing but watch and cry out as the three fat boys smashed the only possession that meant anything to him.
“Play a song now, you tool!”
Ms. Carver ran to his side, breaking up the commotion. She corralled the bullies and sent them off to the principal’s office. She bent down and started to pick up the instrument-turned-kindling.
“I’m so sorry, Steven. I know you loved that guitar.”
“I feel bad for them. They broke it, but I can still hear the music.”
