Rochelle sets us a one hundred word flash fiction challenge, prompted by a photo, every week. Come and have a go, if you think you’re bard enough.
Jimmy Mitchell worked long tedious nights at the bakery. Living in a cramped ground floor apartment, in a noisy neighbourhood, made sleeping a real challenge. Jimmy was always tired and cantankerous.
Mrs Gina Zanelli, the retired opera singer, moved into the apartment immediately above. She liked to practice and play her records. Jimmy explained his situation and asked nicely, but Gina was a stiff prima donna and giving nothing. They took to sniping at one-another in the stairwell.
Gina was feeling smug until Sid Snatch, the punk rocker, moved in above her. One man’s ceiling is another man’s floor. (99)
