Mid-Week Muses: “They Say There’s No Sound in Empty Vacuum…”

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

Jess hugged him. "I've kept
your secret."

Buddy kissed her, boarish
tusks appearing.

Her nose became a
snout. "Our secret..."

"I am a traitor. I am
guilty of that."

"You disobeyed an unjust
order to save innocent
lives... heroism is all
you are guilty of."

Captain Franks scowled at
the squirming catch in the
net. "Nothin' but these
alien worms! Venomous as
cobras, and poison to eat!"

They say there's no sound
in empty vacuum, but EVA
duty was never silent
between the hiss of Beth's
oxygen feed and her breathing.

Robert installed the sentient
gemstone into the silver gynoid.
Crystal took control of her
vessel immediately, then smiled
at him.

Viv leaned in. “Gronk, if we’d
met before orcing-out, you'd
still have gotten me laughing.
You would've gotten a date."

She read the tombstone, it
was the 25th anniversary
of their deaths. 

"I've reincarnated, Love.
Have you?"

She was touched. "Yes."

She fell from the night,
a bright shooting star.
Her next memory was being
born a human, and her
mother's loving arms.

Betsy finished finger-painting
red, white and blue onto the
confused face of her t-rex.

"There! The patriots will
know we're on their side
with you clad in the stars
'n stripes!"
