Glimmer

“Brave New World”

By Scott L Vannatter – December 21, 2014

Desirelle stepped out onto the vast alien landscape, the first astronaut to land on an Earth-like planet, and tipped her finger slightly, allowing the glimmer to issue forth from her index and glide forward in an ever-spreading glowing hue of blue.

The aura widened, covering all of the landscape within sight and beyond, blanketing the soil, curling around the rocks, causing the atmosphere itself to sparkle with intense energy.

The stones split; the dust raised into the air, spun, widened, and fell noiselessly back to the soil; and the nearby mountains shook and collapsed, rebuilding themselves into hills and plateaus.

The dervish moved more rapidly, the now-gathering wind reaching gale force, the sky darkened then lightened, water appearing to fill deeper holes created by the moving soil and dust.

After what seemed hours, things slowed and coalesced, the planet had in its entirety been remodeled and refitted for human habitation by this first visitor, a sorceress obsessed with eventual ruling over an entire global civilization.

Trust

“All’s Fair”

By Scott L Vannatter – December 7, 2014

Sandra watched as Joel left Michelle and walked into his apartment; she especially watched how he looked at Michelle as they kissed goodbye.

She wanted that affection so very much and was willing to take…every step necessary.

Sandra opened the canister she had purchased from Gilda and removed a large chunk of the ill-smelling creme so she could mix it with the hairs she had “borrowed” from Sandra’s comb.

Rubbing the awful mix into a lotion-like substance, Sandra rubbed it all over her hands, face, hair, and even under her clothing, feeling a definite tingle throughout the process.

Standing behind the corner of a building, she changed clothing into something she had again “borrowed” at Michelle’s and walked toward the apartment building as a “new” woman.

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.

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.

Five Sentence Fiction – Envy – The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly – Rated PG13

Five Sentence Fiction – hosted by Lillie – My story after the pic – prompt is Envy – All rest entries are > HERE < Enjoy!!!

Envy

“The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly”

By Scott L Vannatter – November 7, 2014

Sharon watched as Sam kissed Maggie right in front of her.

At that moment, Sharon hated both Maggie and Sam, even though they were all under six years old; jealousy and envy are very closely related at that age.

Sharon ran off into the woods to her favorite tree, the one with the big thick bark and the wise old owl who often talked to her at times like these.

After listening to the owl for over an hour, Sharon had that smile that looks good to adults, but, in reality, should be feared utterly.

Neither Maggie nor Sam were ever seen again, but Sharon was allowed to keep the two toads she found as pets to help her through her tough time.
