Helter-Skelter (flash fiction)




On Sunday Emily visited her father. She found the song Helter-Skelter was playing on the stereo in the lounge, but there was no sign of him downstairs. When she got to the stairs the song Helter-Skelter started playing again, but she paid it no attention.

“Dad!” she called out. She went up the stairs and checked the bedroom. When she walked into the room the door quickly closed behind her. Her father suddenly appeared out of thin air looking terrified.

“Did you turn the stereo off?” he asked. Emily shook her head. “Until that stereo turns off we are stuck in here!”

Emily looked out the window. There was nothing but blackness.
