The Band

This for Friday Fictioneers.

The four of them started off playing sweet country music and Doris Day covers. After a year or so when the hormones kicked in and they realised what things were really about, they discovered rock ‘n roll and did pretty well out of it, girl-wise.

Somehow they then got into heavy metal and did all the tattoos, thrashy hair, biker gear and eventually made a deal with Old Nick which meant offering up the drummer as a human sacrifice one Halloween.

The drum machine never really did it for them and they eventually split up.

Sad, really.

  1. Sounds like you don’t like late-night lawyers! Thanks for reading.

    Dear Patrick, Really sad is more like it – hey tell them to go get a blood sucking lawyer from one of those firms that advertise late at night on TV and sue the britches off Old Nick! What do they have to lose? Oh yea, the little drummer boy. Nan πŸ™‚

    I loved the process of the band’s different incarnations until we got to the sacrifices. Feeling for the drummer – surely they knew a machine wouldn’t play as well. Great understatement at the end.

  4. I see a small, careless shoulder shrug connected to that last. Nicely done.

  5. Sad indeed… especially for the drummer..

  6. I guess that would be dark funny or funny dark? Doris Day wouldn’t want any part of it I’m sure. 😦 So, in a way, they’re being punished for their actions. I think the drummer should come back to haunt them though. πŸ™‚

  7. Dear Patrick,

    Something about that last line just cracks me up. So droll and dry. Good story.

    I love the last line – it’s a special kind of comedy that produces a burst of laughter. It should probably have a name – and a warning not to drink hot drinks while reading! brilliant πŸ™‚

    I laughed too, I’m bad. Great little story πŸ™‚

  10. They should have stuck with Doris Day or at least rock ‘n roll. πŸ™‚


  11. I hope it isn’t terrible that this made me laugh! Sick sense of humor *sigh. Great story!

  12. plaridel says:

    i guess the sacrifice was all in vain. what a waste.

  13. Ok. This story went from straight laced to humorous very smoothly. Good job

I'd love to read what you think ...
