“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.

Keep on Truckin’

By Scott L Vannatter – 149 words

“He certainly had quite an attitude.”

At least, that was my thought when I saw the truck with the monster’s face. It was rather ghastly and ran prickles on my arms and neck, reminding me of Stephen King’s book about cars coming to life.

I knew that one was fiction and so was my thinking here. I laughed a bit thinking how absurd it sounded to be considering how to react to a truck with sharp teeth coming after you with no driver. Actually, why would he even come after me? It was all so unbelievable I did laugh out loud…just a little.

I turned at the noise behind me, not a scream, but not quite a machine sound either. Chuck had been working on the truck and I saw half of his body lying in front of the vehicle. The other half was sticking out from the truck’s…mouth?

A revved engine had me running…

Mondays Finish the Story – “Making Friends” PG13

I decided to try adding a new writing prompt to my list along with Friday Fictioneers and Five Sentence Fiction.

This one is entitled “Mondays Finish the Story” and is overseen by babso2you.  I accidentally did the prompt from October 13th so decided to publish it here on my blog as practice and, perhaps, try the current one on Sunday night or Monday.  For these you have a picture prompt (below) and you are given the first sentence (in italics below).  You are to finish the story in 100-150 additional words.  Enjoy!

“Making Friends”

By Scott L Vannatter

The people waved at him from the bridge below. He smiled and returned the gesture. Then his mind began its usual rant. “What if it’s not a wave? What if they are really a gang of bandits trying to catch you later unaware? What if they aren’t even human?”

The entire ordeal was tremendously debilitating; it left him without energy. What would Dr. Meldeue think if she knew he had slipped so far backwards from their last meeting? “What if she is in it with the group? What if they called her cell phone to let her know he had failed such a simple test? What if Dr. Meldeue had put cameras all around to watch him?”

He sat down hard on the wet stones of the hillside. Police found him there nearly dead from exposure that night when a returning group who had seen him earlier saw him still on the incline but no longer waving.
