    I believe this is an example of suspense, because it makes you ask the question "Why would he never hear it again?"

    Try defining all the terms.. Here. I'll help. A flashback is a reference of what happened in the past.

    Well no. Not exactly. A flashback is just a straight up reference of the past. This doesn't really mention anything about it.
