August 3: Flash Fiction Challenge 99 Word – Prompt: sound – Acrostic Buzz to Bang: Classified: TOP SECRET

CLASSIFED: TOP SECRET

Failed Investigation

Buzz, the buzzer buzzed!
Under the spell of the questionnaire or so we thought, but it jumped., grabbing her by the throat, blood spurted everywhere.
Zapped by a taser, no affect?
Zapped again, still standing, and now the questionnaire was decapitated.

Twice, with no effect. panic ensued
Once should of put it down

Beaten, security called for help, armed guards arrived within seconds.
Agonisingly the alien submitted, it was then manually restrained..
Next, in anticipation of further trouble it was restrained. with three sets of handcuffs.
Grinning, nodded its head ten times, looked up, then disappeared with a bang!

CLASSIFED: TOP SECRET: 99 Word Flash Fiction: Sound

My apologies to Irene Waters.
Irene,
Hi, I genuinely thought you were hosting this challenge and used your title words as the prompts. I did however not use them for my title, just in the acrostic format of my entry. I did use them when submitting my entry in the pingback, an idiosyncrasy of mine as an indicator as which of challenges it is. I don’t think I have fallen foul of plagiarism, seriously hope I haven’t! Have changed my pingback accordingly, hope you find this in order. Seriously a genuine mistake.

      1. Welcome to Carrot Ranch, Mick where we allow for exploration in all its glory — discoveries, breakthrough and mistakes! We play with words weekly and I’m so glad Irene could help inspire you and rope you the ranch!

      1. Shaken and Stirred
        (Elfje series)

        Dusk
        Without matches
        Only the stars
        Shifting slowly until the
        Dawn

        Dusk
        Dreams shift
        Goals tally, pushing
        Nights escape route until
        Dawn

        Dusk
        Daylight dwindles
        Fingers trace the
        air writing poems until
        Dawn

          1. I’ve been catching up on return visits from May – yes I am that far behind. I’d rather write… but it is only respectable to read others too. 🙂
            I’ll check in on that link soon. I’m taking a break.

    1. I do a few

      Dedicated to trying all form of poetry
      Often failing, but I’ll keep trying

      To Japanese styles addicted
      Of acrostics too, an infliction
      Onto my latest form the Elfje 5 lines long each line follows a word count as in 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, total words eleven.

  1. Terrific acrostic, Mick! I always believe the poets among us take on an extra constraint and yet such fantastic results. What an action packed flash. I hope you enjoy seeing it in the compilation at the ranch tomorrow (Pages of Sound). One of my favorite parts to the challenge is arranging each piece into a collection. It’s surprisingly dark and wild this week.
