Twittering Tales, #142…

Kat Myrman at Mercury Colliding has provided another photo prompt for a very short story of no more than 280 characters.  This week I decided to try my hand at creating a story…


“I’m afraid I’ve removed all I can.”

“But, Doctor, it — it’s still moving!”

“I’ve seen this happen before with these parasites.  Alien Services will take her now.  If she’s strong enough, she might overcome it.  If not…”

Everyone cringed at the possibility.
