“Very Apro-Poe”

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

Marie opened her eyes and they widened, screaming where her taped mouth could not.

She was bound to a pole behind the wine bottles in their basement. Her husband was hastily

putting up a brick wall in front of the wine rack, sealing her inside with the bottles.

She struggled, then, looking down, giggled a little crazily. Irony was, after all, something to laugh at.

There, on the floor, was the last present she had bought him: a leather-bound copy, opened and flipped to show the illustrations of two stories. They were “The Black Cat” and “The Cask of Amontillado.”

Five Sentence Fiction – Freedom

Lillie McFerrin gives us Five Sentence Fiction with this week’s word-prompt:  Freedom.  Read mine and click >HERE< for the rest.  Enjoy!

 

Freedom at Last!

 

The Grand-Chancellor of Thumor looked upon the small, scraggly human, the last of his species, as the lights poured down harshly upon his balding head, highlighting his drab attire and poor skin, and the alien laughed those grand full laughs that never speak of anything but irony and criticism.

The man looked full at him,unflinching.

The Grand-Chancellor of Thumor continued to laugh until his three lungs all hurt from the effort and his long, thin tongue had time to form the English words of finality to the pathetic excuse for a man in a language he would be able to understand and know of his terrible defeat at the hands of the most magnificent Thumor Chanixor Army.

“You are beaten, Earthling, and have lost all the precious freedom your race so keenly aspired to, and I ask,”What say you?”.

The elderly man, rubbing the top of his bald head as if for luck, responded that “There is always a choice and that marks the path of freedom” as his thumb pushed the hidden button on his watch and a small, but powerful signal pounded its way through the planet, activating all 12,568 nuclear missiles with no chance of being shut down; he smiled.
