A Special Annoucement

Steve filed in to the auditorium with his fellow employees. At the podium was the CEO, her face twisted into a smile that made dogs howl.

“Thank you all for coming,” said the CEO to the assembled crowd. “We have a really exciting piece of news for you all. We are ready to proceed with phase two of the Great Transferal. Now is the time to ready ourselves to topple the governments of the world. We shall begin immediately.”

As his co-workers shuffled off their flesh, exposing the alien forms underneath, Steve began to wonder if he should have chosen a different place of employment.

The CEO of my company sent out a really cryptic email about a surprise mandatory meeting, and this popped into my head. The announcement turned out to be that the CTO is retiring. I guess you humans get to live another day.  

The photo is yet another one from my trip to Wales. It depicts the newspaper where Dylan Thomas worked.

  1. If you would like to write “flash fiction” I host a flash fiction challenge, called, Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers. Each week I send out a new challenge post which has a photo in it. Participants write a story about the photo in approximately 75-175 words. We each link our stories to InLinkz so everyone stories will all be in one place so we can all read each other’s stories. It’s a lot of fun and a great way to meet new people and make new friends. If you are interested, I suggest you follow this blog (it is only for this challenge and no other posts are published from it):

    If you do decide to join and need directions to link your story to the story board, I will be more than happy to send it to you.
