A little note saying sorry for no posts this week. Due to some rather weird health issues, as well as lot of stress, I was in a bad place for a bit. Now that I’m better, however, I am ready to post and have fun with things. Make sure to keep a watch on this site, as you will have more stories coming soon. Now, on with the show!
Candle On The Table
She was entranced by the music. Elton John was always her favorite.
Hearing him sing “Candle In The Wind” was one of the highlights of her day when she sat down to relax after work. In fact, she played the song so much that she would sing it even at work.
This night, she was so entranced by the song that she didn’t notice what was happening on top of the table on the far wall.
The candle she lit had melted down, and the burning wick slowly fell onto the table. Catching a piece of paper on fire.
She didn’t notice as the house started on fire…
D’oh. That is quite an entrancement, I guess. Hopefully she realizes before the house falls down on her.
Someone that devoted? Ain’t happenin’, sir.
Glad you’re feeling better, Miles. Welcome back to the real world. Well, it’s FF, so maybe not the real world, but… I used to get so involved in reading that I was oblivious to what went on around me. Being a parent changed all that! I like your twist with the title. I was wondering how soon “Candle in the Wind” would show up. 🙂
Ah.. To quote another song “it’s better to burn out than fade away” – music can be deadly.. Hope you feel even better soon.
Miles, Glad you’re feeling better, Welcome back. 🙂 Good story that doesn’t look like there’s going to be a happy ending. 😦 Well done 🙂
I hadn’t even thought of Candle in the Wind! Funny how when we really love a song it follows us everyone (sometimes to the point of hating it.) Nicely done.
I love that song, although to be that oblivious is something. Quite a story.
Glad you’re back among us.
Oh dear – I hope she got out safely. Two months ago my daughter left a candle burning and the damage was devastating, though they were unharmed.
That is left for the reader to think of. I have no clue. 😀
Very nice…good cliffhanger.
