Hamida

I am participating in the 100-word flash fiction challenge, that is Friday Fictioneers. Rochelle Wisoff-Fields hosts this challenge. This week, David Stewart provides the photo. If you’d like to join in, or read the other stories, check out Rochelle’s blog: Addicted to Purple. Here is the link…https://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com/2015/03/25/27-march-2015/

Hamida looked calm. The audience gathered to watch them play were captivated by her face and music. But she was looking steadfastly at the maestro, who was a genius in his own way. It was hard to guess what was going on in her mind.

Her gaze moved on to the other members of the band, each contented and happily submerged in music. She turned to look at the happy crowd coldly. Families…women, children, babies…old people! For one moment, she felt weak. Then her eyes glittered ruthlessly.

The timing was perfect! ‘Boom’ went her bomb…the ‘divine’ job was done.

    It is safe to write that I was not expecting that ending!
    The build up was great, and I agree with Alice, if only that moment of weakness never ceased.

    1. Thank you so much…I have seen and heard so many stories of terrorism that even that serene music band ….made me write a chilling tale. There has been a recent incident too…in which Naxalites killed a few acquaintances.
