The Horror of Shakespeare #18 - If Music Be the Food of Love, Play On

A fountain pen with italic writing in the background. Over the top are the words The Horror of Shakespeare and the quote 'If Music Be the Food...''

Every day in October I will be posting a horror/paranormal drabble (100 word story) inspired by a Shakespeare Quote. 
Good afternoon - this one had no gore or monsters, just horror *evil grin*. I do hope you enjoy it.

If Music Be the Food of Love, Play On

It was such a beautiful day. The sun was shining, the music festival in the park was amazing, and you were there. It was the best day of my life.

We danced, we sang, we ate the best food. Truly love was in the air.

Then one careless driver took it all away, and He came.

As you died he asked me what I wanted. I said I wanted the day over again so I could change it.

He laughed and granted my wish.

The day is always beautiful, the music always sweet, but you have died 107 different ways.

If anyone would like to join in, please do!

P.S. I am so sorry if you are waiting for replies from me - I will get to them.

  1. Give me excess of music that, surfeiting,
    The festival may return, and so defy death.
    That day again, it has a dying feel.
