My tutor made me listen to loud music and write about something that was completely silent. So I wrote about walking on a street and all sound being extinguished.

I walked down the quiet street with the only sound from my bare feet slapping on the cobblestones. As I walked I noticed the sound of the cars from the street above had stopped, not even the rare bird squawked. I looked around and saw that the street was deserted. What the hell is going on? I thought. That street is the loudest in town, it's never not busy. I walked on, not too concerned until I noticed that the sound of my bare feet on the ground had gone silent. I stopped and looked at them. They were slightly dirty from the walk, but they otherwise appeared normal. I raised one foot and studied the bottom of it. Nothing new, just an earth covered calloused

The End
