Music For The Soul

Copyright-Rochelle Wisoff-Fields

"I can't believe that you have turned my library into such a huge mess", my dad scowls as he looks around in disgust.

"Oh, come on daddy, this is exactly what I want to do with my life; make music and teach it to others, you know that", I say grazing the piano with my finger tips.

"So, this is your future?", he looks upset and disappointed.

"Yes daddy, I have this weird hunger within me, that only music can satiate. This is the hunger that comes from within my soul", I say as my dad smiles and walks away.

This five sentence fiction is written for the topic 'Hunger' at Lillie McFerrin Writes.

This drabble (100 word fiction) is written for Friday Fictioneers, 10th October.

  3. I like how either she turned him round, or he was just testing her commitment. I think you might need to look at some of the tenses - the father's words seem to be in the past, but the narrator's in the present tense.

  5. What a shame some parents use such a heavy hand as their children try to fly. A sterling scene!

  7. I love the last line! Seems like the dad figures that the music satiates his child like those books satiate his soul's hunger. :)

  12. Good work. A common conversation between parent and child told with an understanding that makes me think you might have lived through a similar one.

    One note: I think you might mean "sate" instead of "satiate".

    All my best,

    1. Thank you Marie. We can use either satiate or sate, it works the same.
