Day 1 – 30 Day Flash Fiction Challenge

DAY 1:  An  impulse  buy  leading  to  intergalactic  warfare.

All of Me

My feet lead me into the local charity store,
My hands pick up the ornamental rock,
My eyes widen as I take in the beautiful colours,
My fingers run over the sharp edges and tap at the smooth parts,
My mouth asks ‘How Much?’
My Ears hear the price
My lips twist into a smile as I know that I am taking this remarkable rock home.
My legs walk me back home, the rock buried deep in my bag.
My mind wanders at where it could sit, and I place it on a shelf near my bed.
My eyelids are abruptly opened from sleep
My senses detect that I am not alone.
My mind whizzes when I see an unfamiliar creature standing in my room.
My body freezes as it draws nearer
My tongue feels dry inside my mouth as I struggle to scream
My limbs are frozen still and I lie paralyzed.
My confusion is immense as I see the creature take the glitzy rock and swallow it whole.
My fear is doubling as the creature reaches forward towards me.
My sight is darkened as pain shoots through my body rapidly and without trepidation.
My heart is racing faster than it ever should.
My palms are sweaty and I feel faint from the wounds inflicted on my skin.
My head spins, I am losing consciousness; the creature looks on and smiles a cruel smile.
My voice is coming back and I squeak the words, ‘Why?’
My brain burns as words from this creature come to my mind, he says ‘your world took from me.’
My life is ending and it says, ‘So I will take you from your world.’
My vision is blinded by bright white light and all at once I am miles from my home.
