FOR MY SCI-FI FRIENDS...heck it's for all of you.

I write Fantasy, but Science Fiction was my first love. My childhood wishes were filled with desires of being taken out into space by a lovely race of aliens, all because they thought I was just that special. Or, I fooled myself into believing that a group of aliens had dropped me on Earth in the care of human parents so that I could save the planet. Kids have wild imaginations. Isn't it grand? 

I have a short scene with similar creatures in one of my books....book 7 I think.

Here goes...again this is a quick one.
Sugar, an elaborate taffy confection, that's what the atmosphere smelled like on Traxis. A three-fingered hand reached up and poked at the dense fog. It was the closest Eva could come to saying goodbye to the land of her ancestors. Every planet suffers through an evolution phase, a season of refurbishing. Traxis was no exception.

"Are you ready, Erin?"

What could have been a beautiful voice was merely a form of telepathy. How could a creature without a mouth form words? It was foolishness to expect that they could survive on Earth. How did the elders not see that?

Erin joined her. "Eva, stop worrying."

She glanced at the beloved shape of her lover. For years she'd adored the forest green splendor of his iris. "They'll dissect us."

He patted the bulging vein at the crease of her blue eyelash. "Don't say that."

A pale lid closed over a violet iris. "It's what the humans do, destroy what they can't understand. See what they've done to their own planet."

Three stubby digits laced with hers. "And that's why we're going to take it from them."

She stared down at her three-toed feet and surrendered to her destiny. Gently, Erin ushered her away. The future beckoned.

See you tomorrow.  ....^-^.....


  1. "They'll dissect us." Hahaha. Love that.

    Very fun.

  2. You only dreamed of being abducted by aliens? That's funny. I was beginning to think you HAD been. (Just kidding, girl. You know I wuv ya.)

    Good excerpt. I'm with L.G. That line was great.

  3. @L.G. I tried to make them kinda cute. I a similar character in one of my novels. He plays a short port yet is real relevant to the plot. I also did a better job at describing him in my book.

    @Bryce. That was a low blow. :) I still think the coolest thing in the world would be to be invaded by aliens...but no eyeballs...they have to be hunky looking guys.

    THRILLER LOVERS: On Monday I am posting the beginning chapter of a crime fiction. That's as far as the story made it. I don't writer thrillers...but I enjoyed the excerpt. :)

  4. "And that's why we're going to take it from them."

    Dun, dun, dunnnnnn! :) Nice!

  5. Is just about everyone fascinated with aliens?

    Unfortunately I see them as the type that S. Weaver or T. Cruse played with.. When aliens finally arrive I'm going underground (but with my luck they will be giant worms). kt

  6. @Carrie. I'm glad you like it. Sci-Fi is just so fun, and there's so much room to play with eyeball aliens. :)

    @Kt. I hope they don't look like giant worms cause I'll be the one on the roof with the huge sign reading "FREE BEER HERE!" when they come. :)

  7. I must be dysfunctional. I never imagined I was abducted or deposited by aliens.

    Great piece. :)

  8. I'm with Golden Eagle on this one, I don't think I've ever imagined being abducted. Wait... there may have been a phase after the first MIB movie... hmm. :) Great scene, as well. Very grabbing.

  9. @Golden Eagle and @Bethany. Come on you guys. I was only a little kid when wanted to be abducted...okay I still think about it, but I have to. There are aliens in my fantasy writing :D...besides they're hot looking aliens not eyeballs.

    Thank you for stopping by. I love chatting with blogger buddies. :)

  10. I love this post and can feel the description.
    Very vivid writing!

  11. @Desert Rocks. Thanks for checking out my Sci-Fi and for complimenting my writing. I love your writing too. :)
