#WednesdayFiction: #100WordChallenge | “Floating Puffball Cats”

Of course they were going to be a problem. I mean, did no one not see what was coming? Really?

It seemed like a cute idea to everyone, making cats float. Even Dr. Klemens Harrendorf, from the few random notes we recovered from his burned down lab, didn’t think much harm would come from cats floating a few feet off the ground.

It was novel at first. The new breed was well loved. They became the must own pet of the year.

That was until they started floating higher. Then the horror hit humanity as they soon started to explode.

I hated Bing’s image today. I looked at that flower for hours before giving up. Then I search the internet for a weird picture and found this gem. Enjoy!

#WednesdayFiction: #100WordChallenge | “Apprentice’s Stairs”

After walking for an hour, the old wizard stopped before a rocky canyon with stairs that open up into the mountains.

“Okay boy, you want to be my apprentice?” After the young man nodded, the wizard continued. “Then walk up the stairs.”

“That’s it?” asked the young man.

The wizard didn’t answer, but got out his pipe and leaned against the rock face to smoke.

The young man climbed the stairs. After an hour, the young man almost ran into the wizard. Looking around, he realize he was at the beginning of the stairs.

“Now we begin, my young apprentice.”

Today’s inspiration, we check back in with our old wizard and his apprentice. Enjoy!

#WednesdayFiction: #100WordChallenge | “Mu Arae’s Setting”

In 4354, Jeffrey closed his study book. Before he could be put in charge of the wild red apricot field, Jeffrey had to pass a couple of minor classes.

In the late day, Mu Arae was setting and it was going to get dark soon. Before it did, Jeffrey open his Bible and read:

“‘Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath.’

“Now in NIV, please.” The words morph on the paper pages before Jeffrey.

“‘In your anger do not sin: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry.’ Amen.”

We return to our sci-fi hero Jeffrey thanks to today’s inspiration. For some reason, Ephesians 4:26 jumped out at me and so I took advantage. Enjoy this simple message!

#WednesdayFiction: #100WordChallenge | “Sixteen String Jack’s Coots”

Sixteen String Jack’s stomach rumbled. He picked at the 16 various coloured strings he wore on the knees of his silk breeches, waiting for the next rich nobleman to “donate” to Jack’s food fund.

Taking a break from watching the highway to refill his canteen, Sixteen String Jack almost stumbled into a Eurasian coot nest filled with eggs.

“Oh my…” said Sixteen String Jack as he reached to take a few eggs to eat. Jack grabbed three with his left hand. Suddenly, two coots came out of the bushes and started attacking Sixteen String Jack. “Get off me, you silly birds!”

Today’s inspiration didn’t leave me much (again, I miss you Darleen!), so once again I had to throw far into left field in order and landed on Sixteen String Jack. I’m beginning to think that I need a new image inspiration generator. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this short.

#WednesdayFiction: #100WordChallenge | “Sinkhole”

Dr. Asan awoke with a start. He and two other ecologists from the University of Delhi have been given permission to study the biodiversity in the Xuan’en County sinkhole in China, for three days.

Now awake, Dr. Asan could hear the unmistakable sound of breathing coming from one of the caves.

“Hello?” said Dr. Asan softly. The word ‘Shoggoth’ floated into Dr. Asan’s mind, a word from the Necronomicon.

Madness gripped Dr. Asan as he ran for the ropes. He only remembered his two colleagues when they started screaming. Leaving the sinkhole, Dr. Asan mindlessly ran screaming into the night.

Via today’s inspiration, another stab at Lovecraftian horror. Tell me what you think. Yeah, I know today is Thursday and not Wednesday. Stuff happen yesterday and I make no excuses. If you have a problem with it, sue me.

#WednesdayFiction: #100WordChallenge | “Night Market”

Thor, Lady Sif, and Heimdallr were walking through the Ratchada Night Market.

“Thor, I don’t understand-” said Lady Sif.

“Dark Elves.” answered Heimdallr for Thor. “All around us in disguise. We are here to buy information.”

They approach one booth that sells novelty gifts manned by a old and winkled woman.

“You three stick out like a sore thumb!” said the old Thai woman. “฿350,000 for the t-shirt.”

The old Thai woman handed Thor to small t-shirt and smartphone for Thor to make the payment.

“Now tell us what we need to know.” said Thor.

“Ljosalfheim. Odin is there, Thor.”

Hangover 2 ruined Bangkok, today’s inspiration, for me. Not so much the city, but the name. Enjoy!

#WednesdayFiction: #100WordChallenge | “Athena’s Dilemma”

Athena was feeding some burrowing owl at her South Florida home, when a shiver ripped her entire body. Her eyes temporarily turned gold within gold and her white wings showed briefly. Lucky, her ranch was in an out of the way place and she wasn’t seen.

“Hephaestus has escaped!” said Athena, recovering from the shock. When Athena returned to the ranch’s shed, she just knocked the lock off with one strike of her fist and got the armor inside.

One of the burrowing owls had walked up to her.

“No small one.” said Athena. “You can’t come to this war.”

War! We’re going to war! Or something. Enjoy.

#WednesdayFiction: #100WordChallenge | “Hephaestus Awakens”

The thief, hidden in darkness, pounded the Hoba West meteorite with a hammer and chisel. A sizable chunk would fetch much on the black market.

Suddenly, the entire Hoba West meteorite cracked right down the middle and opened like an egg. A giant, bearded man lay inside. A pair of black wings folded behind him and disappeared. The giant man’s eyes open to show he had silver within silver eyes.

“YES!” said the giant man, rising from the meteorite. “I, Hephaestus, have been awaken! The Olympians will pay for imprisoning me!”

The thief yelled and ran screaming into the night.

Not today’s inspiration, but I found the Hoba West meteorite more interesting. Enjoy.

#WednesdayFiction: #100WordChallenge | “Superb Lyrebird”

Det. Paulson got to the murder scene. Her partner, Det. Edwards had already arrive.

“Don’t tell me, a stuff Superb Lyrebird was found here too?” asked Det. Paulson.

“I’m afraid so.” answered the elder Det. Edwards shifting on his feet as he took notes. This was to be his last case before retirement. “The ‘Mimic’ has struck again.”

The press dub this person ‘The Mimic’ because he copied other serial murderers in each of his murders. They left a stuff Superb Lyrebird as their calling card.

“Damn.” said Det. Paulson with nausea washing over her. “Let’s get this fucker now!”

This is me rebelling against today’s inspiration. I am going to start using these animal pics for horror/thriller stories.
