Irritation

“Smoothing It Out”

By Scott L Vannatter – November 22, 2014

Melvin stepped up to the podium and began addressing the Near-Omnicient Ever-Present Overseer of Planetary Works.

“Sir, the universal conveying team wishes to assert their opinion that the Earth people were merely illustrating their ignorance when they mentioned the idea that there can be no other life in the galaxy except their own.”

The NOEPOPW, his irritation plain to see, glanced at Melvin sideways through his fourth optical and gyrated fully on his plex before huffing and signing the papers to stop the galactic hub from being built in the space in which Earth resided.

Melvin sighed realizing that this would have been even worse than the problem with Earth’s second moon fifty thousand years ago.

Mondays Finish the Story

By Scott L Vannatter – November 20, 2014 (136 words)

“When I rented the room, I did not think it would be this one!” Said Johnson Arondi, looking at the doorway to the outhouse he had, apparently paid for.  He looked somewhat disgusted.  He had answered an ad for a spacious room in a quiet, nature-view area where he could commute for his three college classes and the full-time job in the downtown factory.  Granted it was quiet and in a nature-view area.  The commute was less than 45 minutes, but spacious?

“It had better be real clean!” he muttered opening the door.  Inside was a clean staircase.  Intrigued he walked down about twelve feet and into a room the size of most apartments.  It was furnished and well-lit, sealed from sound, and clean to the point of obsession.

“I knew it would be great,” he thought lying on the couch and flipping the remote to the 60 inch screen.

Tired of It All

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

Smittee walked to the front of the mechanics garage, the cover for the local chop shop, and inspected the work going on. Currently, there were twelve autos having various operations run on them.

The pile of leftovers out back was ridiculous and Smittee had no idea what to do about them. Then he had an idea.

Two weeks later all the leftovers had been removed, taken to the park, and turned into the newest (and baddest) children’s play area. It was complete with tire tunnels and muffler stairs.

Who in the world thought that crime did not pay? Smittee smiled.

Five Sentence Fiction – Flight – “Liftoff” PG13 – Sci-fi

Lillie gives us Five Sentence Fiction.   Prompt is “flight.”  My story is below; the rest are > HERE < Enjoy!!!

Flight

“Liftoff”

By Scott L Vannatter

Cameron pulled back on the throttle as he moved several other switches and adjusted a dial or two, and the motor purred, then sputtered, then popped, and stopped completely.

“Dang it!” he yelled as the techie crew surrounded the craft and began twisting, turning, and maneuvering several dozen parts and gadgets on the vehicle.

He went through the same routine as before with the switches, dials, and throttle, smiling as the craft behaved and lurched forward running faster and faster until it achieved flight.

Cameron soared over canyons, twisted through mountain passes, and skimmed over vast plains.

Anywhere else this would not seem quite the task, but here on Mars, the first flight made by man using a craft built on the planet would burst the Internet lines when the transmission reached home.

“Perception”

By Scott L Vannatter – November 13, 2014

“Would anyone know if there truly was an alien invasion?”  Ramon sat back and asked the question during breakfast.  He had a tendency to not let a meal pass without a formal dissertation on something that needled at his brain.

“I wouldn’t and not even certain if I would care as long as they served breakfast like this,” Thom guffawed while holding his greens high overhead.

“Here, here!” agreed Simon, munching hard on his own meal.

Ramon looked over the group and had to agree on two fronts.  First, yes, this was an excellent breakfast, and second, he would not care much if aliens took them over as long as they served breakfast like this and allowed he and his friends to eat together.  With that he opened his mandibular jaws and bit down hard on the plant stem in front of him.
