FF: At 12am

PC: Sandra Crook
He had made all his calculations. He had also kidnapped the care taker. He looked like just another guy on the street. Nothing was suspicious about him. He took advantage of being almost invisible and slowly entered the old clock tower. 
He went down the spiral stairs. He knew every nook of this clock tower.

He didn’t have much time. He placed his booty at the pendulum and hurried to connect it to the gears.

He gave a mean smile and said “Today, while the world celebrates its new year at 12am. When this clock strikes 12….it will be BOOM”

He walked away.


The world woke up to the news "BOMB BLAST AT CENTRAL CLOCK TOWER"

  1. What an eerie piece!! You built the suspense well and now I'll never be able to go near a clock tower at midnight again!

    1. Try going to the clock tower, am sure this is just a fiction.

      I hope actually that this is a fiction though

  2. What a way to start the new year off with a bang. I like the way you draw the reader in to make them care what he is up to. This is a great addition to the fold.

  3. Good one. Maybe he's upset because people actually see him as invisible. LOL. (Get it?) Couldn't resist that one!

  10. This prompt really does lead to something gruesome and diabolical, doesn't it?!! I wasn't too sure what that circular thing was in the middle but went with a wheat grinder. I get a shock every week looking at the prompt not knowing quite how to place it, which is great for my writing as it takes me out of my own domain. Do you find that?
    There's definitely a chilling tone to your story, especially with the ease he's accomplished his mission. Let's hope there are a few more check points in the real world.
