Flash Fiction #260

                        PHOTO PROMPT © Russell Gayer


I can’t believe that this van is flying.  There must be some kind of technology involved.  Anti-gravity is tough enough to accept – but MAGIC??!

It’s not MAGIC magic.  It’s just that some of us have learned to harvest and direct cosmic radiation.  Harry Potter’s car flew.  I often wonder if Rowling is one of us.

But people must be able to see us.  I’ve never heard even nut-case reports.

The diffraction field makes people view us as birds, or distant airplanes.  We might even be some of those government UFO reports.  We’ll need to wash the unicorn shit off later.


Go to Rochelle’s Addicted to Purple site and use her Wednesday photo as a prompt to write a complete 100 word story.

      Some, maybe, but there’s still enough that aren’t, to keep it interesting. I wonder what – if anything concrete – the government will claim they are. The conspiracy theorists will have every answer from aliens to angels. 😯 🙂

    Good one… I like it. Reminds me of the book I’m reading at the moment “The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O.” by Neal Stephenson & Nicole Galland. A very weird read…not my typical fare. Speaks of magic and how it disappeared, and how it’s being found again. And here, when I picked it up, I thought it to be something entirely environmental.

      Thanx. 🙂 The book looks interesting. When I tried to reserve it online, at the library, I got a notice saying that there was a problem with my account. If/when I get that straightened out tomorrow, I hope to ask for it. 😯
