The End?

February 8, 2013 Leave a comment

Pretty much if it weren’t for Chuck Wendig, I would never write anything. This past week he had a Three Haikus Tell One Story challenge over on Terribleminds. I thought it would be fun to write a story with some misdirection. My goal was for the story to appear to be about one thing, only to have the reader find out things weren’t what they seemed. I think I accomplished that quite well.

The End?

It happened like this:
One moment they weren’t here,
And the next, they were.

The invaders came,
They saw, they conquered, and then
They laid down and died.

In just an eye’s blink
We were defeated. Again.
