FFFC #109 – Flash Mob

Welcome to Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge! Each week, he will post a photo grabbed off the internet and challenge bloggers to write a flash fiction piece or a poem inspired by the photo. There are no style or word limits.

The image (my cover) is from Noah Berger for the Chronicle.com.

My Submission 🙂

She practised in her bedroom for weeks. This was her first time participating in a flash mob. She was nervous, but excited. Unfortunately, her room was too small to use the umbrella prop, so she marked the moves holding a straw.

The day arrived.

Gripping the umbrella, she took her place and awaited her part. The chorus came and she began taking her well-rehearsed steps. But, the umbrella was much more cumbersome than she anticipated. With a swing, she whacked the person to her right in the chest, then stabbed the toe of the boy to her left. Before long, most everyone in her immediate vicinity was injured and thrown off their choreography.

Embarrassed, she ran off and watched her carnage from afar. 

That evening, she looked up the performance and saw it already had nearly ten-thousand hits. She expected her in-box to be littered with hate mail, but instead, she was thanked for bringing extra attention to the flash mob which doubled as a fundraiser for a sick child. Her antics had garnered world-wide attention, and the goal of $5000 had already been met and exceeded, twice over.
