My Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers challenge!

It’s beautiful!

Amy closed her eyes. It was revoltingly beautiful, but she couldn’t tell Susie that, or could she? She’d find out soon enough, when they came for them.

Mommy, I want to go see the pink lights! Please Mommy, let’s go closer!

Amy shuddered. The glowing translucent tube like structure was sucking out the insides of every human being on Earth, resulting in the “pink lights” that Susie was now admiring from afar.

The resistance had failed, armies had been wiped out, terrified citizens of the world had finally given up and uselessly locked themselves in cellars and underground shelters.

She had managed to keep Susie safe from the horrors that awaited, but not any more and so she took out the sleeping pills. They were here….any minute now.


She jerked upright and the pills went rolling.

Derek? But how? He was taken long ago with the rest of the resistance.


Bloodstained butΒ smiling, and in his eyes for the first time since the invasion, hope.

  1. That is really horrific learning what the pink lights are. The insides of human beings. At least there is hope in the end when the husband/father shows up after possibly being killed. Great story! Very creative. πŸ™‚

  2. I liked that the father returns at the end before the sleeping pills.

    That’s my kind of story, this. Make it dire but give me a glimpse of hope at the end. Great stuff!

  4. Caitlin says:

    This definitely kept me reading on to find out more. Great work describing these tubes! So creative.
    I’ve nominated you for your work for the Liebster Award:
    I look forward to reading what else you write!

  5. This story feels like a snippet of the dramatic climax of a science fiction epic.

    Fast paced take. And interesting storyline. I’m glad she saw Derek at the end.

    Very creative! Though I really thought you were describing Christmas past with my in-laws (sucking the life out of anything good!! Keep up the great writing.
