Green Beam

Sophie slung her camera bag over her shoulder. The  light was perfect for landscape as well as macro photography.

She saw the space ship just above the clouds. As she watched it get closer, a telescopic cone protruded and shot a beam of greenish light onto a yellow-wood.  The tree miniaturized and was drawn up into the space ship.

The beam shot out again, two metres in front of her and swept closer. Sophie grabbed the reflector from her  bag and deflected the beam as it reached her.

As she watched, the space ship shrank and disappeared in green light.

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.
