Today's #flashfiction Nate The Note

“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results.”

Everything is getting digitized these days. That's a problem since I think that “throw the ebook at them” doesn't quite have the same ring to it. Anyway onto the flash fiction!

Nate The Note

         Nate the note sat in his proper place on the music sheet. All the notes did. The melody must be read right so the song may be beautiful. Can't have the musician, no matter how inexperienced, lose his opportunity to bring the music to life. So was the philosophy of note society.
        But Nate thought differently. He didn't care about whoever needed him to make the melody work. He didn't care about the song. He just wanted to be free. So he left off his line, bumping into other notes and bouncing off bars and notation of all kinds. The other notes looked in shock. Someone would destroy the song? Why? Why destroy the meaning of life?

       The answer was simple for Nate. He wanted to see what was beyond his page. So the little note hopped into the world to see everything the universe had to offer. Music and all.
