#100WCGU – Wk104 – Prompt: …but where did the noise come from… – 100 words – “Battery”

16 Sep

“Listen, can you hear that?”

I listened intently but heard nothing, “There’s no sound. You’re imagining it.”

“Listen!”

He insisted but older ears don’t hear as well as the young.  Faintly, I thought I heard the noise bothering him but where did the noise come from?

It was only after an intense search I realised the source of the sound.  I turned the switch to off.

“It’s gone!” he yelled but I didn’t hear him.

At a frequency too high for my ears, I’d never noticed the high pitch tone coming from my hearing aid when the battery ran low.
