In my story there is a scene where someone uses magic to drop an apple to the ground. What word can I use to describe that?
Edit: Since some people have asked me to clarify a bit, the scene goes like this.
A non believer sitting under a tree asks a mage to show proof that magic exists. The magician proceeds by dropping several apples from the tree.
Thunk.(the first one falls).
Thunk. Thunk. Thunk. (3 more).
Thunk. (The last one falls on the head of the non believer for good measure).
I think thunk sounds really weird here so I am looking for an alternative. I'll also clarify that I'm by no means a writer and I'm just writing a story for an assignment. If you have any criticism of the blurb I showed here then I'll be happy to hear it.
