This is just a taste of Naching’s story that will be featured in our
2018 anthology, Crescendo of Darkness.
Audition by Naching T. Kassa
“An hour later, having left the theater, Jim found himself blinded by California sunshine. The dirt road crunched under his tires and trees whooshed by as he sped along. These sounds, along with the hum of the Mustang’s engine, were the soundtrack to his thoughts.
Where had Langham sent him? And to who? He shouldn’t have ended with the blues rift. If he’d gone with a more traditional coda, he might’ve passed the audition. Now, he was out in the sticks on a wild goose chase.
An old fashioned wrought iron gate suddenly rose ahead of him. It stood dark and skeletal against the pink sky. Jim slowed. Brass numbers were fixed to the bars and they matched the address he’d been given. He parked, pulled his phone from his pocket, and dialed.
Langham answered on the second ring.
“There must be some mistake,” Jim said. “Nobody lives here.”
“There are people there,” Langham answered.
“Yeah, they’re six-feet under. It’s a cemetery.””
