It’s that time of the week again! Sunday Photo Prompt Time! Thanks Al! 😀
Sunday Photo Fiction is a weekly Flash Fictionprompt based on the photo supplied below. If you wish to take part, the idea is to write a piece of fiction of around 100-200 words (usually called flash fiction).
Once you have written your story, please click on the blue creature below to add your story to the list. If you see other people’s faces there, then take a peek at their story and pop them a like a bit of feedback. It’s always nice to hear what other people think of your stories.
Call it what you will, but the Red Planet is like no other.
Over 30 million miles away, no one dreamed we would actually make it.
Now people dreamed that we hadn’t.
Sometimes things happen as prophesized, and we gape in amazement.
Now the Roman God of War has reared its ugly head.
We were not prepared for such a clash, and now we brace against the horrendous beings that survived the inhospitable environment that had us convinced the planet was abandoned.
Such a clever trick.
Only scientists and colonists landed first. They had no chance.
Now we send warriors to pick up the pieces, but even they fall in numbers incomprehensible to their generals.
Retreat is not an option. They have us now; they know our strengths, our weaknesses, where we live.
Curiosity killed the cat, and now us it seems.
Humanity has come together, but it is not enough.
Now we search for escape. But how far must we go to escape these monsters that previously only lived in the imagination?
Can we go far enough?
