Construction

by on September 9, 2012

This weekend’s Trifecta prompt was to take their 33 words, and then add 33 more to continue the story. Their  33 words are as follows:

The last strains of sunlight lingered in the corners, grasping every available point of refraction.  She slid her fingertips along the glass wondering if this was all there ever was. Or could be.

“Meh,” she thought, dismissing her silly sentimental reflections and stepping from the viewport as her ship’s phasers vaporized the yellow sun. A pity, to be sure, but intra-quadrant wormholes had to go somewhere.

This isn’t in any way part of the Fillmore/Farthington universe, or the Catrina Chronicles, I should hope. It just seemed fun. 🙂

  1. Ouch! You’ve got one callous space cowgirl. Douglas Adams would be proud of you!

    • Mr. Adams is one of my favorite authors, so I really appreciate your comment. 🙂

    good one !

  3. I like her already! 😀

  4. She means business…no room to be sappy and sentimental, I guess!

  5. I really love this 😀 Space yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! 😀

    • Space is always fun to write about. Phasers and aliens and planets with oddly similar climates….:P

  6. Nice turnaround! Took my mind to Douglas Adams too.

  7. Love it 🙂 and as with many of your teeny tiny stories I’ve read, it could go places:)

    I’ve finished CATRINA IN SPACE, loved it!! but I can’t get to GR to put my review up (which I have yet to write). But I will get there as soon as the site is no longer ‘over capacity’ 😉

    • Hurray! I did see your review on GR; you are too kind. 🙂 But seriously, I am so glad you liked the book. You’re the very first Catriniac, I think, so I really am grateful for your review. After all, you were the one who suggested I do GR in the first place. 😛
