Twittering Tales #148 – August 6, 2019


It’s time again, for Kat Myrman’s wonderful challenge, to write a story, inspired by her picture prompt, in 280 characters or fewer.

Here is this week’s prompt and my contribution.

Check out all the fabulously creative entries here and, if you’ve never had a go, why not try a story of your own? You may surprise yourself!

The contrail had been there for 3 days.

Mike had to take a sample to see why it failed to dissipate.

As they approached, he could see that it was made up of tiny ant like creatures.

He felt a bite on his wrist, and screamed in horror as they started to devour him, and the aircraft!

  1. Wow! I didn’t see that coming. How horrible! An interesting thought though. We often imagine aliens as human sized. What if they were no bigger than an ant…or bacteria!!! Hmmmm… great take Peter! 😊
