More Than Meets the Ears

I never, in a million years, would have guessed that Hunter Ashen was interested in playing drums for our band. The guy wasn't mean, necessarily. But the quiet, rocker type boy had everyone in our school intimidated.

Ciara Thinks: You know when you see the name EruptingFender9, that you’re in for a witty short story, from someone who should be considered a master of the not-quite-a-oneshot. More Than Meets the Ears certainly does not disappoint, with memorable characters, an imaginative plot and prose that just flows. We see the slow evolution of the relationship between the quirky Nat, who is part of a ska band with her friends and Hunter, the school’s loner and potential new drummer. From the beginning, Hunter has a sweet, subtle attachment to Nat, but things are difficult for him as he has fallen victim
to rumours that he is violent.

Each of the band members have a distinct personality and I particularly liked the interactions between Nat and her best friend Ryan, which are realistic and full of friendly banter. At four chapters long, this story won’t take long to read and will almost certainly put a smile on your face.
