Today's #flashfiction The Ventriloquist And His Dummy

“May the force be with you.”
Isaac Newton* #quote

I remembered that clocks keep the time, so I stared at one for a bit and even after I asked it the thing refused to give any of my time back. Anyway onto the flash fiction!

The Ventriloquist And His Dummy

           The ventriloquist forced his dummy to jabber on and on. Some jokes good, some jokes just plain awful. But every night the ventriloquist practiced his routine, whether his dummy liked it or not. After all a dummy has no choice in the matter. Even if their forced to do it for hours on end, their mouths and bodies forced to move to another's whim.

          And in this situation the ventriloquist was the model made of wood and human the dummy. Some nights the human cried while the wooden man made his dummy's body act. But that's show business!
