ready and willing

For Friday Fictioneers, 100 words

Retirement was not agreeing with them.

Roscoe and Norma restlessly sipped their drinks, soaking in the tropical surroundings. The spacious deck overlooked a pond teeming with beautiful, lush growth, but they both sat bored, itching to cook up some adventure.

They couldn’t help but notice when the sky took on an eerie glow. Without further warning, a ferocious wind exploded around them. Foliage and water became a blur, whipped by the maelstrom.

“Roscoe! Look up!” Norma yelled, pointing.

Turning his head skyward, Roscoe could see the strange, elliptical craft descending towards them.

“Hell, yeah!” grinned Roscoe. “Beam us up, Scottie!”

  1. Roscoe is ready and willing for a great leap into the unknown; unless their vacation is over and Scottie does beam them up. Back to scrubbing the corridors in the Enterprise.

    1. Oh dear, no, I hope not! I like to think the aliens are advanced enough to be into the simple joy of life and compassionate living. I would be excited to meet them in that case.😊
