Mid-Week Muses: “I Thought it’d be Different”

mwm_pngA weekly compilation of collected microfictions composed by yours truly. If your time is short, these are shorter!

"Wise?" old Jarra said
adjusting her shall. "I've
but made many mistakes, my
Prince. It's you that is
wise learning from them."

He shot the teddy
bear, and the child
behind it.

Unphased, she looked
at him. "You shouldn't
have done that."

He screamed.

Looking like a translucent
glass manikin in trunks
and a sports top, Diamond
threw a kick and showed
them she was far from

The crow nudged game
pieces across the
Risk board, then cawed.

David grabbed the
dice. "Will you ever NOT
go for Indonesia, Corvus?

"How did it end? The
gov'ment released a
counter-virus. Saved all
of us that were still
kickin'! That's 'bout
2 mill', worldwide."

"I thought it'd be different."

She looked to him, now as
beastly as he. "Our love's the
same. Now my beauty is wild
and free."

"I'm just saying it's
kind of funny to see
a 35 ton mech with
rabbit ears, Kim."

"They're heat sinks!"

"And the painted nose?"

"Aesthetic motif."

She whipped her head,
and a silken tendril
of animate hair punched
a robber. Beside her,
Beard Man watched his
daughter with pride.

A blade was drawn. "I
bring a gift from Ramesses."

He looked to her lioness
mask. "A quick death?"

She cut him free. "A rescue."
