Aliens Have Arrived – Part Two

(Make sure you read Part One before you read this.)

The experts and conspiracy theorists were beside themselves. Never had they considered that alien life would be water-bound life. These squid like creatures planted on our planet and swam in our oceans, breed in our lakes and rivers. And strangely, did not disrupt the ecosystem in the least.

Some thought that they made it better. Continue reading “Aliens Have Arrived – Part Two”

Galactic Problems

“Species of the Galactic Council, please take your peace.”

The shuffle of feet, hooves, tentacles, and other appendages could be heard throughout the auditorium, somewhat drowning out the other language translations of the announcement. The first session of this annual meeting was about to begin. While not the first session of its history, this would be the first time that the human species was involved in an official capacity.

The announcement was made in English first for our benefit, as was the tradition when new species joined the Galactic Council. Ours would be the 45th galactic species to sign the Galactic Council’s legislation, but we were hesitant. Continue reading “Galactic Problems”

The Coffee Planet – Part Two

(Make sure you read Part One.)

The TimStar Rebellion began as most rebellions do, with death.

The Galactic Queen had served for nearly 100 years. Her body was old and frail. Though the technology existed to repair her, to let her endure for many more years, she decided to let it all go. She slipped away peacefully in her sleep, or so the propaganda told us. Continue reading “The Coffee Planet – Part Two”

The One-Eyed King – Part Two

(Don’t miss the beginning of the story. Read Part One.)

No one saw Ciaran come down from the North, but the legends say that he rode a dark rain cloud, just over the ground all the way to the gates of Camelot.

The great city was a shell of it’s former self. The doors no longer hung on its hinges, but sat sadly by, becoming fire wood for the guards the kept out the undesirables. But doors or guards would not have been able to resist Ciaran. His entrance wowed the people, sending murmurs through the ranks of people. It went all the way up to the Stewart, the seat-holder king.

The Monk’s One Word – Part Two

(Make sure you read Part One here.)

No one suspected that one word would have such power. The crowd that had gathered was still. The Internet stopped; no tweets, no status updates.

“Life.” The word hung in air, as the mystical monk stepped down from the podium. As mysteriously as he appeared, he vanished. The world sat waiting, expecting more, anticipating an encore, but none was given.

What did he mean? It was the question in the silence that everyone seemed to be asking. It was on the face of all those there in the crowd, and on the lips of every news anchor. What was the life the monk spoke of?

That was when things took off, in the worst way. Continue reading “The Monk’s One Word – Part Two”

The Pen Is Mightier

They called it “The Grand Hall of War”.

Within these sacred walls, legendary weapons from throughout the ages, across the stories and mythologies are hung. The sword of the Once and Forever King, Arthur of England, the Excalibur, hangs on the east wall. And directly across from it, the war hammer of the Norse god of thunder, Thor Odinson, the Mjonir.

NASA Off A Budget

img_1063

In the years of the Trump Administration, NASA suffered. Not that President Trump didn’t want to sent Americans into space. He rather fancied the idea of the Great Nation of America spreading it’s wings and conquering more territory.

But in his quest to “Make America Great Again”, he severed all the ties that NASA had made with other nations and their space programs. China backed out. India went solo, creating their own space station. Russia did open their doors to American astronauts, but no one wanted to go with the Cosmonauts. That only raised more political tension and global uncertainty. Continue reading “NASA Off A Budget”

3 Hours

Clock

I have 3 hours.

3 hours…and then that’s it. Is there even a reason why I should try to fight this? With the inevitability of it all, I mean, why struggle at all?

I turned off the TV. I wasn’t listening anymore. The screen slowly dimmed, and then left me sitting alone in my easy chair.

3 hours. Continue reading “3 Hours”
