Engulf

“Lucky Day”

By  Scott L Vannatter – March23, 2015

Unknown by Earth or its inhabitants, a large planetoid-sized particle was hurtling across the deep void of space on a direct collision course with our home planet.

It would take decades, perhaps centuries, but the speeding doom was inevitably on its way.

As it passed through one particular portion of the Universe, its trajectory brought it to within a few hundred thousand miles of a fairly large black hole.

The immense gravitation of the once-star engulfed the planetoid in its nearly infinite gravitational pull, jerking it from its original doom-ridden path and bringing it into its own doom in the darkness of the gravity.

Earth’s inhabitants went through their day, many cursing that it was raining so much this particular season.

Vindictive

“Take It Back”

By Scott L Vannatter – March 16, 2015

“Well, you are!  You are!  You are …stupid!”

Bobby yelled at Franci as he skipped toward home.

Franci, for her part, began to shake; her eyes grew dark, and her voice grew louder as she screamed “Take IT… BACK!”

Clouds formed into almost funnels; the sky grew heavy; the electricity crackled; Bobby had time for a short squeal before he, quite literally, exploded and all grew quiet once again.

Franci looked at the tattered remains of Bobby’s clothing lying on the side walk and managed an “I told you so!” before heading back to the castle for more lessons.

Spoiled

“What a Brat!”

By Scott L Vannatter – March 9, 2015

I got married at 17 because my boyfriend, Sam, wanted to; I got pregnant at 18 because Sam thought it would be cool; I went to work at 2 jobs at 19 because Sam said we needed the money; we are in financial trouble because Sam thought his job was not paying him enough, so he quit.

If I say anything to Sam he ignores me and says I don’t understand; if I say something to his parents, they tell me I don’t love him enough; if I say something to my parents, they want no part of it; If I tell our friends, they tell me I am getting what I deserve.

I told Sam I wish I was smart enough to deal drugs and make all that easy money; I told Sam I wish I was smart enough to run a prostitution ring and have other people do all the work and I make all the money; I told Sam I wish I was brave enough to just kill the bad people who got in my way.

Sam started his new jobs six months ago; I turned State’s evidence last week.

I think I will like my new home in San Diego; I think I will like my new name, too.

Bedtime

“Perchance to Dream ”

Scott L Vannatter – January 31, 2015

“Squeak.”

Little Johnny sat up in bed looking toward the window making the noise.

He got up, latched it again, waited three minutes for more squeaking, then got back into bed.

“Squeak!”

This time Little Johnny realized the sound was louder and came from under the bed.

Five Sentence Fiction – Abandon – “Alone Again, Naturally” PG13

Lillie brings us Five Sentence Fiction.  My entry is below; the rest are >HERE<.   Enjoy!!!

Abandon

“Alone Again, Naturally”

Scott L Vannatter – January 25, 2015

The old, dilapidated mansion groaned quietly in the silence of the centuries.

Francesca sat on the empty floor of what used to be the main ballroom and sobbed wailing tears of abandon.

She screamed and no one came; yelled and no one answered; shrieked and listened only to silence return.

“Mama, what’s that horrible screeching sound coming from the old Banston house?” said Billae Joe, her dress dragging on the dusty road and causing a small whirlwind behind her.

“Dearest, that’s the ghost of Francesca Banston, who killed her lover in a fit of rage and jealousy and was cursed by his mother to reside forever alone in that house over one hundred and fifty years ago.”
