Time for another 100-Word Challenge for Grownups, (100WCGU,) from Julia’s Place. This week’s prompt is:
…but where did the noise come from…
and the assignment is those 7 words plus 100. Here is my entry:
I heard a noise last night, but where did the noise come from? I live alone, and my building is fairly quiet now,now that the kooks from down the hall are gone. The general tension present for the last several weeks finally let up a few days ago, and with it went a lot of the discord in the building.
Back to the noise, which seemed to be something I should have recognized. Then, I figured it out. The noise was no noise at all, but blessed, beautiful silence, filling my ears like sweet music. I smiled, rolled on my side, and went back to sleep.
