Friday Fictioneers – Bonk!

Here I sit, hanging by a wire.

I am waiting for my time to come. No one noticed as I wait above for my moment.

I see the young pop star, fresh out of the factory. Ah, I remember them well. Stock Aitken Waterman-types, now they’re all coming out of the Disney machine.

I’ve been up here for nearly 45 years. Same lights, same everything.

Oh, my time is just about here! I get my chance to do something awesome!

If I can just wiggle a little more, then I’ll be front page news!




Oh yeah, I am evil.

  1. Now this. THIS…was different. (In the best of ways). I only kind of wish you stopped the story at “BONK!” because that would have been a hell of a punchy ending. I agree with Helena though—an inanimate object as narrator almost never fails. Nice work!!

  2. Miles, this seems like quite a bright guy. He has all his plans laid out, and he’s patient too. Maybe he respected singers and actors back in the day too much to bonk them. That’ll definitely make some news. Nice story. πŸ™‚

  3. Loved your take on the prompt – a light hanging around, waiting for his moment, excellent.
    PS Chuckling about the Miley Cyrus comment…

  4. We can always hope it’s Bieber that takes the hit but for my luck this malicious light would take out a truly great artist, you know, like Britney Spears…. Oh wait? Great story.

  5. Funny. A selective light that plans. It would be scary if it was a person, but it probably thinks of itself that way. It seems to think a good bonk would benefit that star. Their head will be swollen for real now. Well done. πŸ™‚
