Friday Fictioneers: The Scream


PHOTO PROMPT © J Hardy Carroll

“The scream, which occurs every day at precisely 3 PM, can be heard from a mile away. During the moments when the scream take place, all the activities in the hospital will cease to exist. All the nurses, doctors, and staff will run and hide beneath a table, chair, something, and press their hands against their ears. No one knows where the scream comes from. No one except the doctors in the inner circle.”

“Were you one of those doctors, grandma?” Billy asked.

“Oh heavens no, they didn’t allow girls to be doctors those days. Anyway, off to bed.” Grandma winked.

Each week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields-Addicted to Purple hosts Friday Fictioneers where we’re challenged to write a piece of flash fiction in 100 words, more or less, based on the picture above.

    • I think you’re right about the supernatural screaming but what kind of supernatural being, I don’t know. At the time of writing, I thought about going with a siren (like a mermaid) or a banshee but just couldn’t make up my mind. And yes, the grandmother definitely seemed like she knew more than she was letting on. Thank you for reading.
