Flash Fiction #69 – Safe in the Darkness

Mu Li Yu lived underground in a world of darkness.

It was against the law to laugh, sing, or dance.

The Surface Dwellers would hear.

They were monsters.

If they discovered you,

they’d pull you out from the ground

and devour you!

She didn’t even know what singing and dancing were

until she snuck to the surface.

They looked exactly like her,

except happy.

She expected they’d eat her on the spot.

Instead, they welcomed her,

explained that Under Dwellers made up tales

to keep people out of the light.
