Eighty four words

For Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given word is Question and the limit, 84 words

I can’t explain what happened that night, it was surreal.

I heard a voice.  It was answering questions I should have asked but never dared to.  Either I’d feared the answer or simply couldn’t face knowing the truth. 

In those few moments, like it or not, I learned much about the perplexities and quandaries buried deep within me. 

It stopped.  I closed my eyes.  I swear I heard laughter, suggesting not everything I’d been told was necessarily the truth.

And so, the questions remain.

    Keith,
    As usual, the graphic complements your post wonderfully. It’s the nature of visions or oracles, isn’t it, to be ambiguous. Love your use of the prompt in this way.

    Asking the questions is always good, but I think everyone must answer for themsleves. Great piece, Keith.

    Ooh, very cryptic, Keith! I was waiting for the punchline then realised we were on another plane today. I want to know what happens next. Great response 🙂

    “I want answers, and I demand the answers I want.”
    Excellent one, Keith. Deep but real. 🙂
