Kyle’s youngest gasped at the loot nestling under the tree.
“Daddy, Santa DID come! How does he do it?”
Her father scooped her up.
“Magic. But he does have help.” he admitted.
“Elves and pixies?”
“Yeah, called Smith and Wesson.”  He winked conspiratorially.
“And they dont just work at Christmas.”

100 word assignment – WEEK 26

Survivor
Day 16?
Has it been that long? I cannot tell. The raft leaks more each brilliant day, the mocking sea, a glorious aquamarine. Like Sisyphus, He punishes our endurance! Yet, our water dwindles – each night, I wake betrayed, my body lathered cold with sweat, aghast at what we did.

At how we acted. In those desperate moments after impact.

Now, just three remain, the aeroplane and evidence within lost to the fathomless depths.
Here, while my companions sleep, I seek written absolution. I pray its enough, for what I’ve done.

And, God forgive me … for what I have yet to do.

100 word assignment – WEEK 25



Bored Now
Well, surprise, surprise! Here I am again. Every year the same. Dragged out to participate in some pointless event for another strapped charity. Probably in the wet and cold. Its not that I even like doing it!

And I look the same as all the rest. I want to get noticed, bit of tinsel, different colour, some lights? But no, have to conform. Its tradition. Boring! Still, got that party to look forward to tonight. Maybe I’ll get lucky.

Oh, theres the gun, we’re off!

Of course, it had to be raining, but at least I’ll keep her head dry.
Hrumph!

No, it couldn’t be. He’d driven him off the road on the way here. But Julia was already running for the door. Before he could stop her she had thrown it wide and disappeared. He rushed in pursuit, slipped on the icy drive and fell heavily. A shadow loomed above him.

<go on, you know you want to finish it …!>

50/50 word assignment – WEEK 24 (The view from outside: part 2)

This is the second part to taochild’s “The view from outside
A flashing light compelled Klrs to study the sensors. Impossible! An open beast-drawn craft was moving at lightspeed near the surface. It should be incandescent, its occupant flattened, yet, it seemed to be distributing … aid? Bizarre, considering he’d not yet destroyed the planet for its faults. Maybe this stranger would enlighten him?
