Meeting The In Laws



Should call this a Thursday Centus, weekly deadline round the corner..... A 100 or less worded Micro fiction, with a Prompt (not included in the 100 words count) that has to be left intact in the tale. This time its Sci-fi style of writing...that's a boon/dream come true for a Sci-fi/fantasy addict like me....whoopee!!! Go have your fill of other worldly creative endeavours at Jenny Matlock's meme...her blog off on my tangent.


Was a nerve wrecking trip in more ways than one....travelling at light's speed, through space warps was one thing....being trapped in a orb that sped along at breathtaking speed ...oops, my body is back on the colony taking in artificial air....
Atleast he is with me...desperately miss holding his cybortic hand. We are barbarians to his folks, in love with decaying bodies they discarded like old clothes a million years ago.
 As we begin to slow down, I wonder which of the hovering orbs are the parents...its times like these I love to quote old liners.."Beam me up, Scottie..."

This eerily reminds me of meeting my last girlfriend's parents... :D

Judie said...

Looks like you've gotten into the sci fi genre, and very nicely! Beam us up, Scottie!!

Loved your explanation of her plight with the subtle differences...so creative and a tad scary to those of us who have ever had to meet the inlaws!

I loved all the SciFi talk. Very well written. Good job.

An obvious mismatch between the two, here. Hope it turns out well in the end :)

Thanks lovely ladies and charming men for taking the time and interest to say a lot of words....what more does a story teller need? :D

Jenny said...

Ahem.

I am now going to say something that I have never, ever said in my life about sci-fi!

Come back here and tell me more!

This was really excellent. I love the abstract believability of this whole writing endeavor.

I am really impressed with what you did here.

And, please, send me the sequel as soon as you have it done!

Thank you for linking.

A science fiction, time warping, moving at light year speeds... and yet, the human element, nice.

Glad you made it this far...would love to hear your take on the words scribbled. A comment every now and then keeps the blues away. :D

Since, crazy Mr. Blogspot won't let me reply to the comments here (is upset with the water ladies ever since they refused to verify visitors)...will do the next best thing, drop in to your blog to say my Vanakkam/Namaste/Salaam/Hello.
