Arrival (Micro Science Fiction)

 

The noon sun had tilted a little from its position. The ship had docked not long ago. The cargo was getting unload. Suddenly an interrupted siren caught e’one’s attention. Before a reaction triggered off, a large impact of explosion heard and shook the sea and the dock. The ones, hundreds or more, there were extinguished in a blink leaving no trace–no charred bones, no ashed body. In the exploded black smoked sunlight they came out. A quartet of flesh-red colored figures–an amalgamation of a human and a gorilla with five fingers in each limbs and big head with small eyes.

#e’one is my shorthand for everyone.

  1. I was interested in your short hand use of [ e’one ] I can understand how you would use short hand when quickly developing a story. Sadly my style of short hand is to incorrectly spell words😢

  3. I hope it all happened so fast that no one felt much pain and horror… so what are these Aliens up to next? Did they do it deliberately, or was it collateral damage? Would be difficult for diplomatic relations.

      1. Oh. May I ask why you use it in a writing challenge? It’s all about the words, my friend

        1. Actually I generally don’t use this shorthand in challenge…after posting I saw I had used it…so I left it like that because word count will not get affected…otherwise I would have changed it…

          1. Everyone is one word so the word count wouldn’t be effected, nor would your readers be quite so confused.

            Shalom,

            2. Dear Sangbad,

              You asked the question and I feel the need to be honest. I have to admire your efforts in a language that is not your first. Having said that, I will say that while the story has potential and is imaginative, to an English speaker it might be confusing.

              Shalom,

              Rochelle
