Every Tuesday I post a writing prompt and my response. It gives me a chance to exercise my writing muscles outside of my WIP, and hopefully inspire you to write. So enjoy my flash fiction piece and post your own in the comments!
Start a story with this line: "I wish someone told me..."
I wish someone told me that this would happen. I mean, a little warning would have been nice. I had been trained to use the silly contraption, to ensure that I could use the controls and aim properly. Of course they did not want me running around with such a powerful weapon without being able to use it properly. But really! Could they not have told me that when I trained the sonicdemolecularizer at one of the aliens - it would burst into a smelly green goo! It is going to take me a week to get the smell out of my hair! If someone had just told me to stand back before firing I would not be in this mess. Of course no one thinks of that. They just want me to take their big fancy gun and save the world, again.
