Death by Handbells

on 01/13/2012

You see officer, the situation is unusual but not unexpected. Both Jen and Caitlin hated each other. Earlier tonight, they were at it again, arguing. Jen always borrowed money from Caitlin but never payed her back. I heard that Jen even stole it a few times. I also heard that Jen owed Caitlin over a thousand dollars. Well, tonight, their fighting was even worse than usual. In fact, it’d never been so bad. People kept trying to break it up but no one could. We gave up and just watched them. It started with words and slowly elevated. There was slapping, then punching, and then Jen just walked away. Well, Caitlin, who I heard from Katie, who heard from Jane, who overheard Marissa, who was talking to Alex, who talked to Caitlin’s cousin’s girlfriend’s sister, that she has a wicked temper. Well, Caitlin picked up a D7 bell and threw it at Jen. Then Jen just turned around and screamed. She sprinted toward Caitlin who’d already picked up another bell, a C6,  and was flinging it at Jen. Jen got one, a G5, and threw it at Caitlin, and that’s how it went until Caitlin picked up an F4 and Jen picked up an A4, then they hit each other on the head at the same time. They dropped and that’s when we called you guys. That’s how it happened officer, I swear. Just ask anyone, I’m not lying.

    “… and that’s when we called you guys.” I loved that. My first thought was, “*THAT* is when the cops were called?” It must have been like watching a reality show on the television and waiting for the commercial break to call. Handbells. Creative! Thanks for this.

    Take care,
    JC

    Fun one. I want there to be music when I die, but not like this.

  3. Funny! Made me laugh out loud. “Well, Caitlin, who I heard from Katie, who heard from Jane, who overheard Marissa, who was talking to Alex, who talked to Caitlin’s cousin’s girlfriend’s sister, that she has a wicked temper.” Immediately thought of 31 Flavors and Ferris Bueller!

    I’m imagining the racket those bells would have made with each fling!

    Ha! This is great. The one big paragraph really sells it as a teenage (ish?) girl rushing out her story to the cops. Lovely stuff.

    Oh this did make me smile, I love all the “who-heard-it-from-so-and-so” connections, and the fight sounds as though it was a right ding-dong. 🙂

    Knocked out by a bell! Wow. lol Really liked the heard-it-from-who-heard-it-from-so-and-so line.
