Tantalizing Teaser

Tantalizing Tuesday is all about writing 200 word Tantalizing Teasers, inspired by a personal picture prompt to post on Tuesdays. The emphasis is on having fun, pictures can be anything that takes our fancy. I hope you enjoy what we have to offer.

“Davey, stop messing around! This neighborhood is completely shitty and I’m not playing your silly games.” When Newell was greeted by silence his anger quickly turned to fear, his best friend would have given up the joke by now. A quick glance around the dark parking lot showed it was as deserted now as it had been twenty minutes ago when New had left the club. He once again tried Davey’s cell phone and heard the faint strains of Dancing Queen. He cursed his friend’s warped sense of humor. When he rounded another row of cars he saw Davey sprawled on the ground, brown spray paint spelling FAG across his immaculate white shirt.
He had told Davey not to come outside alone as the violence around the club had been escalating, but  he was too stubborn to give in to anyone he considered a bully. New dialled 911 as he rolled his friend over to check out the damage. New wished it wasn’t too serious because the police hadn’t been very helpful the last time Davey had been attacked by a group of homophobic ruffians. A second later he realized this was no ordinary hate crime.

Davey was dead.

Oh God, a nightmare come true. I don't even know what to say. Beautifully written. You captured Newell's and my emotions perfectly. Damn.

Lee Brazil said...

Oh- very well done! Excellent flash.

Naomi Shaw said...

Oh, so tragic! I want to cry. I hate that stupid prejudices can escalate to senseless violence. Excellent post

Molly Synthia said...

Ugh! How the hell is that having fun???? I absolutely didn't want to read that today!

But I needed to.

We all need to.

Excellent post, Cyril.

Angelica Dawson said...

How tragic!

gemma parkes said...

Aw poor Davey, poignant and beautifully written post.

Oh wow. Beautiful post. So sad!!

I knew my comment this morning didn't take and was lost to oblivion. This post crushed me. I loved it and was so sad because it so moved me. Homophobia is a wellspring of needless hate. These men are our brothers, cousins, friends, lovers and uncles. We should embrace and encourage love in all forms. Peace and Harmony are the true passions of God:) xo

There are so many things I want to say that I don't think I can...this was wonderfully written and just...yeah - great flash.

Leann Mitchell said...

Wow, terrific teaser. My heart cracked a little while reading it. Unfortunately, close minded, violent people exist. Poor Davy.
