Friday Fictioneers – Heart Of Glass

(Author’s note: Greetings and meetings! Exams are over for me, and that means I’ll be posting a lot more as time goes along this month. Excellence will come this month. Besides that, last week’s offering was the best by far. 98 unique views within 1 week. Excellent job, readers! Keep up the good work! Here’s today’s Fictioneers offering!)

Heart Of Glass

by Miles H. Rost

“Found one!”

Maizie walked down the dirt path, and crouched down.

“What did you come up with, Trish?”
“Must have been an old Heeregard hospital. Take a look.”

Maizie picked up the small tube that was on the ground. She clinked it against a piece of metal and sighed. She knew exactly what the place was, and it was not good news for the explorers.

“Not a hospital. A burial ground.”
“Heeregard?”
“Nah. Broken-hearted New Humans. As they die, their hearts turn to glass.”
“Seriously?!”
“What you found was an aorta. Let’s go.”

Trish looked up, quizzically

“I’m not staying around for the ghosts of the lonely…” Maizie flatly stated, as she turned around to leave.

Friday Fictioneers – Invisible WHAT?!?!

Author’s note: Welcome again to another Friday Fictioneers. Things have been pretty busy for me over the last week or so, but I have some time to do what needs to be done. Enjoy today’s offering!

Invisible WHAT?!?!

by Miles H. Rost

“So, you really think she’s here?” Mark Driscoll asked his buddy, Clark Jackson.

“I know she’s here. I tracked her from the airport.”

The men looked at the building.

“And her front door is up there?”

“Yeah!”

“Well, how do I get up there?”

“Don’t you remember how she got to our town in the first place?”

“Invisible jet, you said, right?”

Clark sighed.

“Yeah. So if she has an invisible jet, and she lives in that building, it means she must have invisible stairs.”

Mark looked at him, head askew.

“The last time this happened, I fell into a sinkhole. No.”

Mark turned and walked away.
