The Red Pyramid – Friday Fictioneers

Just a bit further now but the humans were close behind. He pushed himself, limping clumsily across the wooden bridge. He was faster in water than on land and, if he could just reach the lake, he would lose them.

He watched in horror as the roof of the red pyramid in the distance began to unfold.

“Wait!” he cried. “No, wait!”

His legs burned as he tried to run faster but it was too late.

The ship hovered momentarily over the pyramid then whooshed away.

Just like that, it was gone.

And he was abandoned on this planet alone.

  1. Dear Fred,

    Welcome to Friday Fictioneers with your well told Sci Fi Flash Fiction. I’ll confess that I could see the beginning of E.T. in this. I look forward to reading more from you.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle
