Speculative Flash Fiction – March 20, 2021

NSFW for a bit of swearing. Maybe an ugly visual.

They is those what like brief.  This is brief, a C-note.  Then you can go about your business.


“We gotta eat something.”

“But the goddam thing’s green!  Six legs.  I guess legs.”

“Only green outside.  Here, I’ll whack it open.”   [Thwock!]

“Ugh! Green inside too.”

“Don’t smell bad.”

“Your ass! Smells like, like…”

“Don’t say it.  Won’t stick in your mind.  Feels like meat.  Remember meat?”

“No. Before my time.  Always Synthexx for me”

“No more Synthexx.  All gone.”

“So, it’s eat this…”

“…or die.”


“You shot the damned thing.”

“Shoot or get shot.”

“We dunno that.”

Looked like a weapon!”

“Aw, geeze! It’s got pocket-like things.” 

“What’s inside?”

“Dunno. Looks like paper.  And…”

“Some kinda writing.”

Retired career IT software engineer, or as we were called in the old days, programmer, it's time to empty my file cabinet of all the "creative" writing accumulated over the years - toss most of it, salvage and publish what is worthwhile.

    1. Thanks for looking in. 100 words w/o narrative requires fast “pictures.” Eight? Insect. Two? Clearly human. Three? Seems rather alien. Oh, my! should have gone with three!
