FFfAW Challenge – 174th

Photo credit currently unknown, though Joy’s working on it!

The street was deserted, quiet, eerie, ghostlike.
It hadn’t always been like this.
People had complained about the noise, the broken windows as kids lost control of their football or were just running around causing a ruckus.
No-one knew who had invited him, no-one knew where he came from or where he went.
All they did know was that his music enchanted them, and they danced and sang to his melody, skipping happily in his wake, and followed him as he weaved his way along the cobbles.
He led them away from their homes, their families, never to return, and now the street was forever silent.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I suspect the families are already regretting their course of action.

  2. That is what I was going to say – a type of pied piper story! Many men and women get lulled out of their homes in similar ways by deceitful people. Great story!

  3. I always thought something was fishy about that pied piper 🙂
