“The Marian Kind”

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 words

Marian walked outside the library and over to the man lying on the grass.

“Sir?”

“Ma’am, is this Iowa?”

“Yes,” she looked strangely at him.

“And, are you Marian, the librarian?”

She nodded.

“I am here to start a boys’ band in your town!”

“And, I suppose you graduated from Gary, Indiana?”

“Why yes, I did indeed!  I’m Professor Har…”

“Yeah, yeah.  Beat it, Hill.  I will tell you the same thing I told the guy in tights with the bow and arrows last week:  wrong Marian, wrong time…stupid wormhole. ”

She walked away leaving the man looking after her…

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.

“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.

“To Build a Fire?”

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

____________________________

Randy sat hunched over in the ice cave working to start the fire.

He had been stuck for nearly two days and at the temperatures outside, he did not have long.

The tinder caught, a spark igniting the dry grass he had spent his daylight finding. One blade smoldered and his breath kept it going.

At last, the wood itself gave forth heat and his body shook in triumph. He had read the book and knew that the ice could prove his downfall. What to guard the fire with?

He was found lying on the ashes the next day…smoke inhalation.
