It is Monday again, and this is the day I devote to the other blog that I write, which is the Mondays Finish the Story flash fiction challenge. This challenge gives an opening line to a story that the writer must use and that they write a story that goes along with the photo. The word limit is 100-150 words, not including the opening line. Here is my contribution to this week’s challenge. The opening sentence is in bold and italicized letters.
The Biosphere – Photo by Barbara W. Beacham
“At first, it looked like an ordinary marble, but it was far from it.” They saw it from a distance. They continued on heading to the biosphere. It had been there now for 45 years.
“Are those fractures?” asked McClary.
“I don’t know,” replied Smith.
They got to the biosphere and circled it looking for a way in. The surface did look fractured.
“Where is the door?” Smith asked.
Gaining access, they went through the locks. Not knowing what they would find inside, they left their suits on. As they walked through the last lock, they saw the hydroponic garden. Fish tanks were bubbling, and cows looked up at them.
Heading into the building, they found themselves in the dining hall. The people turned to see who was coming in.
Smith and McClary were surprised to see humans and greys eating pizza, drinking either wine or milk, while a band played music in the background.
“Welcome!” they both heard in their heads.
