WonHundred Word Wednesdays

A little history to this one. I forgot about it till 10:30 the night before it was due to be posted. As I sat there and contemplated the prompt, my husband comes and sits next to me on the couch. I mention my task and he says, "there are bones in it." Then BAM! it comes out. Not my normal style of writing, but I really really want to meet this kid. I will have to consider writing more to this story. 

Hope you enjoy. 

You find a box in the attic that isn’t yours.

There are bones in it.
They aren’t mine. They aren’t even human.
Not animal either. It’s a strange cross of reptile and human.
Think alien
Am I surprised? Not really.
I only see my mom during the full eclipse of the moon. That’s the only time the portal’s open.
I suppose it would be safe to assume they were hers. Not from her body. But in the fact they belong to her.
Yeah, she’s odd like that.
Now how do I explain to Dad that I took those bones, put them back together.

Having a new pet will be fun. 

Now go see what the others have written.

  1. I love that last line. So creepy!

  2. Intriguing! I want to hear more about these creatures/characters that have been set up in these few words!

  3. I'd kind of like to meet the mom!

  4. Ok, yeah, um, I need more. So intrigued by this portal and the mother and why she has a box of bones. And, hey, fun new bone pet! I'd name him Skippy. I really enjoyed this. I love the super short paragraphs, they lent an interesting tone to the piece.

  5. I really want to see what kind of 'pet' this will be! Nice!
