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.
