Impossible Body
By
Jake Bible

“Of all the specimens I’ve collected, this one is my favorite,” Mr. Rege stated as he gestured towards the display case. “As you can see, it is perfectly preserved. Until this find, only partial examples were ever found.”

Morgan stared at the multi-limbed…thing. It was suspended in the display case by thick wires, its impossible body hung for all to see.

Then it twitched.

“Uh…Mr. Rege?” Morgan said, tapping him on the shoulder as the man continued to address the other guests. “It moved.”

“Nonsense,” Mr. Rege said as the display case shattered into a thousand pieces.

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Welcome back, y’all!

How do these Fridays keep happening? Where do they all come from? It’s like every week there’s another Friday. Crazy.

HEY! Sorry, didn’t mean to yell, but HEY!

Have you read Galactic Vice? If you have then please do me a favor and leave a review. It can be one or two words even. Here are some suggestions: “AMAZING!”, “GROUNDBREAKING!”, “ORGASMIC!”

Okay, maybe not that last one…

Anyhoo, reviews are how authors stay alive these days. If you forget to review your favorite author then they shrivel up like shrinky dinks and become husks of their former selves. And as much fun as that would be to watch, just like watching shrinky dinks in the oven, most authors don’t enjoy shriveling. Something to do with the thymus gland or whatever.

Also! Guess what?

Now, on with the drabble!

The Image
By
Jake Bible

“Can we cry alone and be our better selves?” Missy asked, her eyes locked onto the image before her. “Can we be solitary creatures and improve upon our basic beings?”

“Uh…” Craig mumbled, unsure of where she was going with all that.

“I mean, look at this,” Missy continued, nodding at the image. “It’s excruciating. The inner turmoil I feel demands that I be alone.”

“I’m not seeing…” Craig began, but gave up. The image wouldn’t let him finish.

“Maybe we should break up?” Missy suggested.

“I can’t… I won’t…” Craig stuttered.

The image watched them, mocked them, ruled them.

Speaking of end of times, and beginning of times, you should check out Brian Walton’s Recursion series.

Really Upset
By
Jake Bible

“I can’t find my wallet,” the man sobbed. “I can’t find my wallet!”

“Should we help?” Melissa whispered to Jeff. “He looks really upset.”

“He lost his wallet,” Jeff said as the couple walked on. “I’d be upset too.”

“IT WAS MY LIFE!” the man shrieked.

“Jeff…” Melissa hissed.

“Fine,” Jeff said, returning to the man as Melissa waited. “Hey, buddy, can I–.”

The knife slash was swift.

“Did you take it?” the man asked, Jeff’s throat spewing blood.

Melissa screamed.

The man smiled down at Jeff. Then he picked up something from the sidewalk. “Oh, wait, here it is.”

Cracked and Sparking
By
Jake Bible

“Lieutenant?!” Captain Stalmore shouted. “Get me those coordinates!”

“I am trying, sir! But the navigation system is shot to all Hells! We’re flying blind, sir!” Lieutenant Custie replied, his eyes wide with fear. “We’ll have to navigate by sight, sir!”

Captain Stalmore stared at the cracked and sparking view shield in front of him. The entire Javsis System was out there, but all he could see was a six meter square section.

“Can we ping the wormhole portal?” Captain Stalmore asked.

“I have, sir, and I’m adjusting course. Fingers crossed,” Custie replied.

“Fingers crossed…” Captain Stalmore sighed. “Engage engine drives.”

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Here we are again! Friday Night Drabble Party time!

I have something great to announce before we get into the drabbletastic entertainment!

Galactic Vice is here!

Corruption. Greed. Lust.
Sins undercover Galactic Vice Detective Etch Knowles faces every day.

Politicians on the take. Underground gambling. Sex trafficking.
Another day at the office for Galactic Vice Lieutenant Angie McDade.

Shaking down hustlers. Offering “protection” to bar owners. Cheating at tile games.
Galactic Vice Detective Kalaka doesn’t exactly play by the rules.

A cargo barge filled with corpses. A potential war between crime syndicates. Traitors within the Galactic Vice.
These are the nightmares the three must face. Using all of their resources and experience they will fight to keep each other alive even it means bending rules, busting heads, and breaking laws.

But tossing regulations to the side and going rogue may not save them from an investigation that has doom and downfall written all over it.

Can they solve the case before it becomes their last? Or will the operation fail and end up ripping their lives and Jafla Base apart…

 

Doesn’t that sound AWESOME?

Check it out!

Now, on with the drabble!

Enjoy!

Reminisced
By
Jake Bible

The man sat against the wall, his body wrapped in several old, tattered blankets.

He stared out at the rubble and ruin that had once been a great city and reminisced.

The magnificent buildings that had towered above the citizens as they hustled to and fro from lives that were on a never ending repeat cycle. The steam and smoke of industry that had once settled over the rooftops. The sounds, so many sounds, that filled the ears to almost bursting.

It had been glorious.

A scrape on scorched concrete made the man close his eyes.

It was his time.
