Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers – Week of 2-25-2015

The photo for second flash fiction:

My short explanation 113 words long:

Dear Diary

I don’t know what is happening around me! I eavesdropped on the creatures with two legs who call themselves human beings.

There were many people around here yesterday. All talking about the same subject.

CLOSING DOWN THE COURT!

Why, why, why? Many people enjoyed playing on me. We even had some great tournaments here with big names like the Williams sisters, Agassi, McNroe and many more. Why do they want to close me down? I am still in a good playable state.

I know that these humans found a young girl raped and killed in the nearby shrubs.

That does not mean that they have to close me down…..

    Baie uniek!!! Net jammer die Williamsusters het daar gespeel 😦 Dis natuurlik tong in die kies gesê, maar ek het ook my rede hoekom ek so sê.”

      Hul sou elke geval nie daar speel nie. Te eenvoudig vir hulle. (Het nie ander ou name dadelik onthou nie! Ha ha, ou brein wat bietjie sradig werk!)

    This is the first flash fiction I’ve read from the court’s POV. Great take of the prompt and show of controversy (a girl was raped/killed nearby, but the tennis court and those who’ve played on it don’t want the place to be permanently closed)

      Could solve the problem but the tenants in the blocks of flats don’t want it anymore and the owners would like to build another block of flats- maybe!
      Thanks for your visit

    A different and interesting interpretation of the prompt, Scrapydo. It also presents the common theme of well used places closing down and the controversy that often surrounds them. In this case the reason seems to be the murder of a girl in the nearby woods. Perhaps the whole area was to be renovated and made less dark at night. Well, before I delve into any more of that. I’ll just say that I found it thought provoking. 🙂

      Thank you I appreciate your comment. I think it was my teachers brain working in another direction. There is a lot more to tell about what you mentioned in your comment

        Intriguing reply, Scrapydo. Perhaps even enigmatic . . . ? 🙂
