Weekly_Writers_Challenge proposed a five minute freestyle writing, that began with the phrase He found the cacophony distracting as he walked in the room.  This is my entry for the week.

He found the cacophony distracting as he walked in the room.  All he could hear were the loudest of the loud ascending notes blurring into an assault on the ears that made him slightly cringe.  That trumpet is flat, that trumpet is sharp, that percussionist is just hammering away to annoy everyone, he silently thought.


He stares down at his program and sees the names of the musicians who fill the orchestra.  As he reads, the instruments slowly stop playing and he hears a sharp rapping.  The conductor has entered the pit orchestra.  The musicians slowly bring their instruments to their lips. 


Then he hears it.  The sound he has been waiting for since he walked into the theater.  Her voice so pure, yet hollow,  still able to make his heart sing with her.  He looked at his arms and saw the goosebumps rise on his skin and knew then this moment was worth it.

  7. mmm… You’ve even managed to imply what he’d had on his mind before the cacophony distracted him.

  8. The twist you brought in by contrasting the noise with a pure voice is very striking.
