It came from outer space (Friday Fictioneers)

I try to catch the attention of anyone walking past.

People wave.

Ugh, not helpful!

I shout but no one seems to hear me, or they do and would rather not get involved.

I glance over my shoulder at the growing blob of tentacles on the kitchen floor. It’s getting bigger.

I have no idea what it is.

I bought the ball — egg I guess — at a fair. It looked cute. Painted in pretty swirls that almost seemed to move. Yeah… clearly a mistake.

All my tech fritzed when it … hatched. Including my phone.

“Someone get help!”

This is a Friday Fictioneers Prompt

  1. I would take the risk and jump!

  2. That’s how it always is. One innocent little mistake and you end civilisation as we have known it

  3. Oh oh … rip a sheet, tie some knots, shimmy down. …

  4. Good thing she only got one. I heard they were cheaper by the dozen. A haunting tale, Laurie.

  5. I could picture it, feel the desperation! Yikes! Where’s the flame-thrower thingamajigg bazooka blower-upper when you need one?!

  6. Yeah, time to get a bit more desperate, methinks. That thing isn’t going back in the egg any time soon!

  7. I bought some extra large eggs this morning, and now I’m a little concerned!

  8. Oh my gosh, I hope someone takes her seriously and gets a ladder up to the window soon. What a nightmare to buy a “curiosity” that hatches!

  9. Gaaahh! I hate squishy things with tentacles!

  10. Oh, stellar, if not creepy, take on the prompt.

  11. Dear Laurie,

    I think you hit the top of the creepy charts. Nicely done.



  12. lol maybe it just wants to be friends 😀
