“Music Soothes the Savage Beast, All Else…”

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words


“You really don’t understand,” said Prof Jonhaven as they looked around the room.

Electrical music equipment, mostly keyboards, filled the area so much that the two could almost not move around.

“No, Professor, I guess I don’t,” replied Justin, a new music student.

Professor Von Josburg was a genius in the musical field. He could make music do almost anything.”

“I guess, Sir, but I don’t see why they hauled him away to prison just for that.”

“Simple. You see keyboards and musical instruments. He sought to find the perfect melody. In the end, it would have enslaved the world!”

“A Matter of Taste”

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

Toby licked the treat cautiously. He swirled his tongue around the edges, then straight across the front of the delicious morsel. It was between his meals, but who could pass up such a great surprise?

He stopped several times, swirling the taste around with saliva in his mouth, trying to figure out what flavor the delicacy was. He was stumped. He stared at it for several minutes before deciding.

In the end, he did not really care much. After all, for a tom cat like himself, it was not important if the sucker was swallow delight or mouthful of mouse.

“Very Apro-Poe”

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

Marie opened her eyes and they widened, screaming where her taped mouth could not.

She was bound to a pole behind the wine bottles in their basement. Her husband was hastily

putting up a brick wall in front of the wine rack, sealing her inside with the bottles.

She struggled, then, looking down, giggled a little crazily. Irony was, after all, something to laugh at.

There, on the floor, was the last present she had bought him: a leather-bound copy, opened and flipped to show the illustrations of two stories. They were “The Black Cat” and “The Cask of Amontillado.”

“The Ground Beneath Our Feet”

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

Stella walked slowly across the “Crypt of Millions” in which graves had been dug, filled, and then covered in concrete and marked off with stones. The problem was, here in the mountains, snow fell almost constantly. Thus, came Stella’s job: shoveling the snow and dusting the graves and stones.

There were almost never any visitors, so she often wondered why she must shovel so much. Then, it would happen: the snow and cold would crack a grave and the spirit of the dead would come forth.

For her part, she did not mind. It gave her someone to talk to.
