Number One on the Billboard Charts

Number One on the Billboard ChartsBy, Nan Claire Falkner

“It’s a museum now.” Carole said.

“This is where all those great songs came from?” Harry asked.

“Yes, sweetie, we wrote most of them here.”

“Mama, why didn’t they ever acknowledge you?”

“Well, this business is cut-throat, and even though I wrote two hits for Dyn-Dyn , there was a complication.”

“Well, I think it stinks – you deserved your name on those songs – just as much as they did.”

Cal was sitting in the sunlit chair when they walked in the room.

“Hey Babe! I see you got my first check.”

“Cal, this is your son Harry.”

  1. Hi, Nan. Good, creative story based on this week’s prompt. I was confused by this: “Walking into the studio, there sat Cal . . . ” I’m guessing this must be one of those misplaced modifiers because Cal can’t be walking and sitting all at the same time. May I suggest instead: “As mother and son walked into the studio, they saw Cal . . .”
