Flash Friday Fiction

Flight Path

“Tower, requesting assistance on approach”
“Assist request noted, LU01. What’s up? Over.”
“Seems to be a large object in our flight path. Over.”
“You following those headings I gave you? Over.”
“Yessir. You sure you got it right? Over.”
“Lemme check. Yep, they’re right. Over.”
“Tower, assist on approach”
“You, too, MO21? What gives? Over.”
“Blockage ahead. Brick in nature. Over.”
“Let me get this straight. There’s something in the way of both your flight paths? Over.”
“Yessir. Over.”
“Yep. Over.”
“And neither one of you has been drinking? Over”
“Nope. Recommend alternate route, Tower? Over.”
“Follow the light. Should be two golden arched beams to the right. Follow ’em up to landing pad. Over.”
“Roger that. Helluva way to run a space field. LU01 over and out.”
“I cannot wait to get back to the Mothership. MO21 over and out.”

  1. Go to the arches, follow the light. Ray Kroc would be proud 🙂

    thanks for the nice comment on mine, Erin.

  2. Dear Erin,

    Thanks for the follow. I enjoyed your story, especially the Moth-er ship. Thinking of it is one thing. Placing it in a story as imaginative as your and making us smile is quite another.



  3. Loved it! My only quibble is that I would have used “can’t” instead of “cannot” in the last line as everything up until then had been pretty informal. Very well done 🙂

Tell me something good.....
