It is Monday and once again I am participating in the Mondays Finish the Story flash fiction challenge. The rules for this challenge are to write a story that goes with the photo and uses the opening line provided. The word limit is between 100-150 not including the opening line. Here is the photo and my story!
A body suddenly crashed through a plate glass window at the Brigadier’s house. Startled, the Brigadier and his guests ran towards the sound.
Coming around the side of the house, they found George lying on the patio amongst bits of glass. Blood oozed from numerous cuts on his body. He groaned, clutching what remained of his wine glass.
The Brigadier went over to George and helped him up. Private Marsh came over to assist.
“Private,” said the Brigadier, “go get the first aid kit from under the kitchen sink.”
Helping George over to a lounge chair, the Brigadier got him settled. “What in the devil happened George?”
“So sorry Al about your window,” George said. “Remember the strange lights we saw over that vineyard?”
“Yes,” replied the Brigadier.
“I saw them again.” Suddenly, a beam of light shot down on George and he disappeared.
George found himself behind a wine bar looking at drunken aliens. In his head, he heard the word “MORE.”
