In Cathy’s kitchenette, the pots and pans, the colanders and rolling pin hang loosely suspended, from a rack on the ceiling. They make for a unique sight, always grabbing eyeballs.
“Is this installation for aesthetics?”
“Or to minimise the space crunch?”
“Or to ward away evil?” some ask looking askance.
Cathy brushes off the questions.
As night befalls, the glass pane on the ceiling shatters. The clanking of the utensils doesn’t stop. Cathy sleeps blissfuly unaware.
Next morning, bleary eyed Cathy totters into the kitchenette, for a cuppa.
She is aghast to see the mutilated remains of her precious kitty.
Writing fiction after over a year! Woah! Missed being around, and I’m chuffed to be back.
Written as part of the Friday Fictioneers challenge hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (more details HERE). The idea is to write a short story of 100 words based on the photo prompt above.
