“Offering”

Finality

Scott L Vannatter – January 14, 2015

Jeckland raised her hands toward the heavens and cited the lines from the ritual she had studied for several months.

“I offer myself to the realms as a sacrifice to that which on my life I have pledged.”

The air grew still then, almost like a breath, the clouds opened up and shimmering, whirling bands of starry lights cascaded from the center, opening up and engulfing the figure of the woman, now so tiny in respect to the magnificence of the scene.

Her body began to blur, taking on the aspect of a ghost and, within minutes, she vanished entirely, the clouds drew up, and all became still once more.

After a slight hesitation, the earth at the center of where Jeckland had stood only moments before exploded into light; the illumination spread to all parts of the globe, wiping pollution, trash, and all manner of planetary desecration clean, giving the Earth a new and glorious start.

“There’s Just One Thing”

By Scott L Vannatter – January 4, 2015

Newman sat down softly on the concrete slabs beside the portal entry to the public library.

He really could not decide whether or not to be happy, sad, angry, or depressed; he just knew that, whatever he felt, it would not be enough.

He had managed to develop the newest, freshest way to meet new women, get their attention, and ask them out with a good chance of success; happy was a good word.

In fact, he had just asked out a beautiful brunette with stunning brown eyes, long hair, full lips, and what’s more, she had said “yes” when he mentioned dinner that night; yes, happy was a good word.

His memory, however, was a bit spotty and he realized soon after they had parted that he had not only forgotten her name and number, but could not even remember the restaurant where they were to meet nor the time; yes, depressed was a good word.

Lillie brings us this week’s Five Sentence Fiction Prompt:  Glimmer – My contribution is below.  The rest are >HERE<.  Enjoy!!!

Glimmer

“Brave New World”

By Scott L Vannatter – December 21, 2014

Desirelle stepped out onto the vast alien landscape, the first astronaut to land on an Earth-like planet, and tipped her finger slightly, allowing the glimmer to issue forth from her index and glide forward in an ever-spreading glowing hue of blue.

The aura widened, covering all of the landscape within sight and beyond, blanketing the soil, curling around the rocks, causing the atmosphere itself to sparkle with intense energy.

The stones split; the dust raised into the air, spun, widened, and fell noiselessly back to the soil; and the nearby mountains shook and collapsed, rebuilding themselves into hills and plateaus.

The dervish moved more rapidly, the now-gathering wind reaching gale force, the sky darkened then lightened, water appearing to fill deeper holes created by the moving soil and dust.

After what seemed hours, things slowed and coalesced, the planet had in its entirety been remodeled and refitted for human habitation by this first visitor, a sorceress obsessed with eventual ruling over an entire global civilization.

Trust

“All’s Fair”

By Scott L Vannatter – December 7, 2014

Sandra watched as Joel left Michelle and walked into his apartment; she especially watched how he looked at Michelle as they kissed goodbye.

She wanted that affection so very much and was willing to take…every step necessary.

Sandra opened the canister she had purchased from Gilda and removed a large chunk of the ill-smelling creme so she could mix it with the hairs she had “borrowed” from Sandra’s comb.

Rubbing the awful mix into a lotion-like substance, Sandra rubbed it all over her hands, face, hair, and even under her clothing, feeling a definite tingle throughout the process.

Standing behind the corner of a building, she changed clothing into something she had again “borrowed” at Michelle’s and walked toward the apartment building as a “new” woman.

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.
