Make it Stop :: A Drabble

Salutations! I hope this day finds you feeling fine – better yet, I hope this day finds you feeling magnificent. Why not aim high, eh?

As is the case whenever there is a “Wednesday’s What is It?”, my work of short-fiction exactly 100 words in length (aka a drabble) will reveal the mystery photo I posted on Wednesday. And, once again there was a mystery photo, so the drabble includes the answer.

Technically speaking, the first person to guess correctly was Leonore from As a Linguist and A Modern Day Dinosaur; though Maxi over at Maxi’s Comments was not completely incorrect with her guess, just a little too specific. Confused? Yes well, clarity can be found in the drabble.

As always, I hope you enjoy the drabble, and I hope you’ll come back again next week. Your participation makes this more fun for me, so thank you for playing.


Make it Stop

Over and over, nothing was stopping it. Terri started to panic. How long would this continue? She thought to herself.

It happened again, and she jumped. The just washed jar dropped to her feet, shattering into a million pieces. She began to cry.

Again she held her breath and tried to keep still, but it was no use – she was interrupted by the disturbance.

She closed her eyes and screamed at the top of her lungs, “I CANNOT TAKE THIS ANYMORE!”

Then it happened. The room was silent.

She opened one eye and then the other. Her hiccups were gone

  1. I’m back in fighting shape!
    Okay, I’m not really. I won’t be until several more days of sleep and no more homework. But it’s nice to see there is a glimmer of hope for my brain activity to be restored 😉

    Buzz gets bad hiccups – can go on for hours. They drive him insane. I don’t get them too often and they usually go away fairly easily. Drinking water always does the trick for me.

  2. I’ve experienced both… many, many times (just ask my cupboards)… but never together! That would be quite an experience! Although, the way hiccups go sometimes, a shatter or two might be very worth it!

That was my thought on the matter. Your comment?
