The Trap (105 words)
They were waiting for me when my spaceship landed. Despite all their communications of friendship and scientific co-operation, they had known all along.
They had lied when they had painted earth as a friendly, semi deserted planet that would welcome settlement by Vortigoes. All they had been interested in was studying a new life form.
So here I am trapped in the translucent polymer inner chamber. I can see the metal bars of the outer cell.
I have communicated. I know it won’t be long before my people free me and take the ultimate vengeance. I can see the pre-annihilation clouds aggregating in the west.
I am trying to write a novel in between getting distracted by flash fiction. You can check out the first two chapters at Chapter Buzz. Meanwhile I am inspired by all the great flash fiction stories I have been reading.
