Modest Earth Goddess

By Scott L Vannatter – 159 Words

Herbert looked at the floral representation of the Earth goddess. She was beautiful, full, and, well, boring. The Eastern seaboard floral exhibit cabinet was coming tomorrow specifically to see this presentation and Herbert thought it needed something. His dirt-caked fingers lifted his hat and scratched his balding head. He smiled. He knew just what to do. They all said the Earth goddess was goddess of the Harvest, full-figured and sensual. He would show them that side of her.

Herbert took his shovel and decided that he would need to be careful to keep the roundness of both breasts if he was going to dig out the front of the display. Down about three feet should do it. He raised the tool in the air and his face hit the dirt. Something had flipped him in the back of the head! He looked at the female plant figure. He thought she had been smiling before. He decided to go home early.

Five Sentence Fiction

Ruins

By Scott L Vannatter

 

They are My Ruins, By God

She stepped onto the stone slab marking the center of the ruins and spun wildly, glad to be here, glad to be free.

Fire and sparks flew from her fingertips, stretching deep into the night sky, illuminating clouds and creating large shadows on nearby stone walls.

She motioned and the tons of stone began to move, sliding together into building forms, the shattered pieces reattaching themselves, giving shape and substance to the once-dead city.

After several hours, as dawn began to peek its head over the horizon, the city lay finished, ready for its day of business and service.

She began her quiet wailing, beckoning to all within miles to come join the ranks of this new metropolis brought to life by the unknown daughter of Zeus.

Five Sentence Fiction by Scott L Vannatter

3/7/14

Furious

Mickela stuck her fist in the air, sending the sound of a thousand thunderclaps reverberating throughout the area and shattering windows, jars, bottl

She opened her mouth and poured forth a siren which physically damaged all stones, bricks, and ceramic items in the same area with little pause before a second onslaught at least as loud as the first.

Her other hand rotated, sending gusts of cyclonic wind cascading over the land, upturning cars, buildings, trees, and moving tons of sand hard enough to polish mountains with the force.

Finally, her feet pounded, creating earthquakes of such magnitude that there was no use even fleeing them as they covered dozens of miles in seconds, destroying anything in their paths and opening crevasses hundreds of feet wide for miles.

It seemed that when a goddess of a child’s age throws a tantrum, the world takes notice.
