Meeting The In Laws - The Breakdown - 3



A 100 or less worded Micro fiction, with a Prompt in bold (not included in the 100 words count) that has to be left intact in the tale. Do take a spyhole check into other efforts at Jenny Matlock's meme...her blog off on my tangent
My third and hopefully last instalment in the Sci- Fi genre...the waves echo on...

The dome looked like the Itrigs* she has seen of the motherland....a place known through stories, now myths for some....
It has been 5000 Estel* years since anyone in the colony was taunted "earthling"...
Some pointed their proton projectiles* at her, some  looked away guiltily while others with hope....she was a traitor to some, to the majority the only one the "Bhaa" and Benen may yield to ....to the shamed "ethical".
The sight at the dungeons was enough....she would trade her life... ask him the last favor...as she left, "It was growing bigger by the minute..." the body pile of soldiers and civilians alike.



(*Itrigs advanced photo storage powered by gamma rays.
 *proton projectiles - the only weapons that could temporarily disable the Orbs with cybortic bodies.
*The colony - Earth like planet Estel where a year had 666 days)

Great job of continuing the story. It's harder than it seems! You do have a knack for sci fi. Nicely done! Kat

A sci-fi story indeed. Yet, it ended up on a sad note.
Interesting though.

Cheers,

I read back through all of these! Very well done indeed. I love to read and watch sci-fi but it's one genre I have never had a knack for writing about. Always nice to meet a fellow writer too :)

I love the fact you are sticking to the sci-fi genre and making a full story out of the prompts. This was great.

What a great conclusion. I really like the term "proton projectiles." I agree with everyone else - you are a natural with this genre. Then again, I think you're a natural with every genre.

Great Sci-Fi here, but not only that; I like your names that mean something in either Sanscrit or Latin.
Do you know Sancrit well?

My grandmother had a good friend who spent not only her childhood but 20 years in India. She knew Hindi and Sanscrit. She told me that in one of these languages, there is a word for the relationship between the parents of children who are married to each other. The 'in-laws' having a relationship to each other and not just through their children. Instead of saying 'my daughter's mother- and father-in-law' there is a word for this connection. She said it was samhan or there abouts. If you recognise this I would love to hear what you know about this.
Best wishes,
Anna

Finally!

I've been so behind and I try to always read these in order (cuz I get easily confused and lose my place) BUT I've been anxious to read the next part of your story.

It did not disappoint.

I think if I read sci-fi by authors like you I would actually like it!

Thanks for linking up.

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.
