Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 44 Star Of The Show...

Star Of The Show

It was her big chance to prove she had what it takes.


Singing her heart out she revelled in the applause.





Although there was a standing ovation, she was sad.


Standing in the wings she watched as the star of the show bowed to the audience,





taking credit for miming to the voice of another.




My post about singing in public inspired this 55, not that I did that of course!


Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.

ciara said...

is this in reference to the olympics?? that was so sad they didn't let that little girl sing out in public cuz she wasn't 'cute' so they had someone lip sync. also reminds me of that movie singing in the rain. great job, ake! :)

Flowerpot said...

yes I saw that about the olympics - what a swizz! have a good weekend Ak!

buffalodick said...

Lip sinc should always be announced (or denounced!) as such..

Jo Beaufoix said...

Oh, like that little girl in Beijing. :(

Smalltown RN said...

Lip sync....remember that duo Milli Vanelli? And yes of course the Olympics...how sad...I to sang in public at my sisters wedding with a church full of people....

Hey Ake, great 55 have a wonderful Friday and a great weekend

Akelamalu said...

You know how you get something on your mind and it just won't go away g-man ;)

Well my post reminded me about that little girl in the Olympics yes Ciara. I thought it was disgusting that they didn't let the girl with the voice appear in public just because she wasn't pretty enough!

Wasn't it just Flowerpot!

It definitely should Buff. You've dropped the dy from your name - how come?

Exactly Jo.

It was terrible what Beijing did to that little girl RN. How brave are you singing at your sister's wedding? :0

Yep busted Bee!

I hope you have a great weekend too Missy :)

Mona said...

Re The Chinese Olympics Singing Girls Scandal:

Vanessa Felz said the substitute singer we all saw was like a baby Stepford Wife!

Anndi said...

Well done.

My Chicklet just couldn't understand why they did that during the Olympics... and I couldn't explain it. Very sad.

angie said...

I'm imagining that writing a story in exactly 55 words is NOT easy. I'll have to try this sometime.

Lu' said...

I think the music choice is excellent :)

Donnetta Lee said...

Now that is the only way that I COULD do it, A! Neat 55er. And cool pictures, too. Mine's up also. D

Travis said...

Hmmmm...shades of the opening ceremonies at the Olympics.

Have a lovely weekend!

Ron said...

Brava, dear lady!

Hello Creative, Clever Writing Machine ~ I always get so excited as I head over here to see what you have created with words. You are a word artist. I am going to try one of these sometime. For now I enjoy watching and reading. Take care.

Jeff B said...

I enjoyed that. Funny though, my lips didn't move as I typed that. Hmmm

Mama's Losin' It said...

How fun! I'm gonna have to go check out this Mr Knowitall now!

Akelamalu said...

It's not easy being brief Daryl ;)

It's cheating don't you think Mona?

Mmmm she did a bit, now you mention it Gleds.

A very difficult thing to explain the reasoning behind it to a child Anndi :(

Oh do join in Angie it's a great challenge. :)

I'm pleased you like the music Lu :)
