Hunted- Friday Fictioneers


Friday Fictioneers.jpg

No matter what will happen around me, I have to continue playing.

It’s hard to believe they would look for us here, but nowadays they seem to be everywhere. Times have changed, we are not safe anymore; they are hunting us like animals.

They march in at night in their uniforms and arrest people left and right. I have heard stories about transports and camps, but that can’t be true.

I need to stay calm, surely, they will search the guests, not the musicians – I should be alright. I just need to stay calm.

I wish they would leave us Muslims alone.

I apologize for the grim outlook in my post; I can’t help feeling this way right now. I fear for this nation. Hate has ruled many times before and it was never good. I wrote this in honor of my Grandpa, whom I never met.

The Friday Fictioneers are held by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. I always say I am not a writer, just a story teller and then I started participating here and I started writing. 🙂 Click >>>here<<< and join the fun, it’s a great challenge.

  1. You beautifully and poignantly put into words the thoughts of many people I know. As the daughter of a German Jewish refugee who fled to England with his mom at the start of WWII before coming to the US at its end, I am still hopeful that ALL the citizens of this country have learned from the terrible history of Germany and will not doom us to repeat it.

  2. That was a great twist, Bridget. I was thinking Jews and Nazis not Moslems. I hope that doesn’t come about in the U.S. These are scary times. We have to not be afraid to voice out opinions. There’s free speech and the right to criticize regardless of what some want us to believe. Good writing. —- Suzanne


  3. Great twist at the end. I, too, feel that history is in danger of repeating itself. Yet we can all communicate now. Somewhere (on Facebook?) I saw a post from a women about what to do to help if you saw someone being bullied or vilified in public for their race or religion – sorry I can’t find it now, but it was very simple and helpful and I hope I could manage at the very least to go and stand next to the victim.


  4. It was interesting reading your story because I was thinking of the Jewish musicians in Nazi Germany so your last line had quite an impact on me. I have been watching the US election campaign from the sidelines in Australia but I am concerned about extremism in the US and Trumps views on things like building a wall between the US and Mexico.
    Well done. You got me thinking, which is always a good sign with a piece of writing.

    • Nice to meet you Rowena!

      I was born and raised in Western Europe, right between Italy and Austria. Many of the elder people had witnessed the horrors of WWII first hand. My Grandmother was part Jewish and my Grandfather was arrested twice because he refused the Hitler greeting. He spent time in Auschwitz and came home a changed man. I never met him, but heard of him.
      What is going on right now makes me fear that history might repeat itself and it leaves me -and so many others- fearful.

  5. Dear Bridget,
    Take heart. You say you’re a storyteller and not a writer. Although I beg to differ with the latter, I also want to encourage you. Not all writers are storytellers. You told a story and wrote it well. Sad commentary of the times.
