Daily Flash Fiction on 7/26 - Write a story that includes the line: “Who said that?”
It’s 2:00 in the afternoon on Friday July 17, 2009. Something odd is going on. I figured I better write it down.

I woke up this morning and this particular phrase kept running through my head .

“Who said that?”

It’s just a murmur in the back of my mind. Like the background sound in a restaurant, or a briefly over heard conversation from a few paces away.

I didn’t pay it much attention at first. But it’s been getting louder.

A lot louder.

I’m sitting at my usual lunch table at lunch and I could have sworn some one was standing behind me “Who said that?”

“Said what?” I said, turning to find an empty room.

I quickly packed the remains of lunch and went back to my desk.

“Who said that?” in the elevator.

“Who said that?” as I sit at my desk.

“Who said that?” as I open my laptop.

Each click of a key seems to make it louder.

It’s gotten so loud I can’t think, can barly typee this assss thee sound is soooooooooooooooooooo


It’s Thursday July 25, 2019.

I found this word document on an old USB drive.

I just wanted you to know that it doesn’t matter “Who said that?”. What matters is what they said.

I have been at peace for a long time now.
