100 word challenge – Sydney statues – Arthur
Sydney, Australia. Multi-coloured figures stood silent in the sun. Across the Harbour, the magnificent Opera House gleamed. Everything was just as I remembered. Meandering through the statues, I spotted two aboriginal musicians, one playing a didgeridoo, the other chanting. The deep echo from the didgeridoo rolled like thunder. Swatting away a thieving seagull, eager to share my lunch, I was certain I saw one of the statues move. Calmly walking up to it, I rapped on the statue’s chest.
“Oi,” it bellowed at me, “clear off.”
I stumbled back in sheer horror and sprinted away, not daring to look back.
