Crash (Friday Fictioneers)

August 7, 2015


She hadn’t moved in a couple of hours. The twist in her leg too painful to think about let alone try and move again. Dragging herself from the crashed spaceship was just the beginning. She’d need shelter, food and concentration to rebuild the busted emergency alert.

Right now, all she could do was stare up into the sky.

It was a pretty moon, the second hadn’t risen yet but the one she stared at seemed to have a life of its own, playing peekaboo with the roiling clouds.

Those clouds didn’t bode well. She needed to move.

  1. Wonderful and well written story. 🙂

  2. She has a lot on her plate. It’s no wonder the moon gave her a brief, reflective moment. Nicely written.

  3. Thanks for reminding me about Friday Fictionners, this looks a fun thing do may join in sometime. Enjoyed your writing.

    I love the whole setting. Shelter would be essential. Great story.

  5. Dear Solo,

    A moment in time nicely written.



  6. I like the open-endedness of this. I hope she survives. The image of the moon playing with the clouds is a really nice touch – a contrast with the tension. Great ending.

    I will resist the temptation to allude to women and parking. 😉
    Good piece.

  8. 2 moons and a spaceship, you gotta love that!!! I wonder what she is going to do when the storm hits? Will she be able to get the emergency alert working again? Once again you leave me hanging with lots of plot questions!! Great job 😃

    • Thank you, I think this scene might pop up in a larger story, I really liked the way this came together
