Rough Drift

"Small" writing challenges for my small writing talent. Hotel note pads are the only space allowed. Let's see if I can strip it down and tighten it up to learn something. Improving my skill of weird fiction.

22.) Watching the new people.

The final addition to this station? A big black cylindrical section. There isn’t a single person on this work detail that could tell you what it is for or what’s inside. Orbital platforms are nothing new. Employed for civilian or tactical needs, they require massive resources. Learning is something our government has never avoided. The whole station is automated to begin with so nobody would be able see what it does. That’s alright really, it operates unnoticed. Equipment on the subject planet isn’t capable of discovering this station in a Lagrange orbital pocket. They won’t know what the planetary governments discover of them, on this new place called Earth.

My october theme of making things creepy or leading up to creepy events continues. This one, perhaps not that creepy but knowing they are spying on us is always a fun one. Will they benice or evil? who knows if tey will ever say hi. they might give up and go home knowing that this party isn’t worth their time and there’s nobody interesting to meet. It’s fun to throw a twist at the end. you thought it was us spying on someone else didn’t you? Ha!
