AnElephantCant play the keyboard
Although he quite likes a bash on the drums
He has to accept
He is musically inept
He is more trunk than fingers and thumbs
Once again it is Friday Fictioneer time.
Band leader Rochelle ensembles a symphony of storytellers to create a tale in 100 words.
And AToneDeafElephant tries not to be too unharmonious.
The idea is to write a very short story, circa 100 words, based on this picture prompt (below).
We weren’t a bad combo, but we needed a decent guitarist to draw the crowds.
The problem was, even with just the two of us, there was always conflict.
Musical differences, I think they call it.
I wanted to branch out, be more creative.
He wanted to stick to the Charlie Parker school of bebop.
Cool stuff, but a limited audience here in Hickville.
I need to make money, so I tweaked his last composition to make it a more commercial sound.
When it sold, he said it was all his work.
That is why he is in the cartons.
Hahaha! Problem solved. Well done!
Creative differences indeed. 🙂 Great story!
A murderous Hickville! Well done!
Greetings from Greece!

Well written. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cringe at the ending… I love your intro poem as well.
A clever ending. Beginning and middle were also enjoyable.
Dear Elephant, How clever of you, and I hope he was put into a really thick plastic bag with all the air sucked out and then put into the carton. Gosh – I’m getting good at this murder stuff. . . Just kidding. Elephant, this is a great story! Nan 😉
Never saw it coming. Very good!
Justifiable. All he needs is a jury of artists and he walks. Loved this!!!

Those artistic differences do tend to plague the creative sorts. Collaboration is good for the process, though. I hope this little group manages to sort it out.
Beware! Do not cross AnElepantCant.
Here you are. You write very well.
Yet another body in a boxed decay
anElephant knows about foul play
AnElephantCant stay away from a murderous ending for long, can he? And you do it so well. I really did enjoy this.
