  • The Lights Glimmered In Her Eyes

  • Expedition: Science

    Flotsam and Jetsam crawled from the wreckage. A crab trundled toward them, its claws raised high, clicking and clacking like castanets. “We should step away; that thing’s packed full of rocket fuel and may explode.” Jetsam dragged his...

  • Blessing in Disguise (Mature)

    Brent opened his eyes. Sand. Everywhere. Some flames, licking into his field of vision from somewhere to his right, and a curlique of black smoke twisting up into the blue sky. He tried to move — first twitching his little finger, then bending hi...

  • Cheers and Down We Go

    “All hail Britannia! Marmalade and…” The boisterous cheering of her fellow airmen roused Molly from her lolling at the window. The sea was so beautiful beneath the scant clouds as they flew along. Spirits were high. Life seemed so gra...

  • Continued...

    As my foot rises, it falls back down to the floor beneath it; I know I am at the top of the stairs. I open my eyes and, with some effort, finally get my hand to detach from the railing. My eyes scan the catwalk, finding another grey door at the other e...

  • Chase

    I yanked the wheel to the right, the seat belt slicing across my neck as the car leaped away like startled prey. The SUV shot past, skimming paint from my front wing, sudden red lights shining in my eyes. I stood on the brakes and swerved around the ve...

  • Countdown

    Thirty lanes, smart highway grids and years of evolution be damned; humans always slow down for a gruesome crash scene. John imagined that the Distracted (and possibly Departed, judging by the amount of smoke) must have been listening to the same broad...

  • pointy sticks

    A soldering iron, a soldering iron, my kingdom for a soldering iron! Repair kit outwardly impressive, but of no use whatsoever in counteracting the effects of a big pointy stick being jammed into the workings of their finely-tuned electronics. Same wit...

  • Shattered (Mature)

    I’m an impartial kind of guy. Granted, I prefer women — their soft lips pressing against me, the way blood-red nails rake across my sides — but I’ll take what I can get. Thinking about the way a man’s tongue flickers again...

  • Looking through the Scope( Part 5)

    I awoke to the smell of burning rubber and my throat was dry as a desert. There was smoke beyond the crumpled metal all around me. The sun was at eleven 0’clock. Hours had gone by and yet I was still alive. My friend, Larry, hadn’t been so ...

    When I woke up, my head screaming in protest to consciousness and my body slow to respond, I instantly knew what happened. Opening my eyes and rubbing them with my aching arms, I stared down the corridor of the Lucas. I was nestled in between my pod an...

  • Landfall

    My eyes ran up and down the Lucas. It was the first time I had seen her in the flesh, never actually getting so much as a glance at her body when she was in drydock. Finally seeing it was like falling in love. The entire thing looked like an enormous, ...

  • A journey of 58 miles begins with a single step

    I walked out past the ship, heading eastwards. Lucas and I were nestled in a low, shallow valley. Ahead of me, I could see long grass swaying in the wind, tree leaves quiverring gently and a glistening silver river wind side to side like a snake before...

    I sit there, at the kitchen table, unwilling to hear the words spoken to me. “She died in a car crash, Hal. I’m very sorry.” I stare at the ring pattern in the wood. I don’t cry. The information hasn’t processed yet. ̶...

  • Hope in a State of Disrepair (Day 115)
