Inexorable – Stealing Away the Last of the Sunlight

Monochrome Moon Wolves

 

Monochrome Moon WolvesSpacePort Eclipse Wolves

Monochrome moon wolves! A subtle, relentless shadow crept across the face of an alien sun sending a soft, fiery glow sliding across the abandoned landing unit tips where only the moon wolves resided and the wild vegetation flourished growing rapidly in the cracks and crevices of the deserted buildings, long since abandoned by their alien civilizations. The abandoned shuttle port and its overgrown, unused space crafts roamed only by the Wolves_Abandoned SpacePort glowing moon wolves sliding subtly amongst the empty shells, food in plentiful supply around the crumbling, rusted hulls and skeleton cruisers.

 

 

Inexorably the eclipse light silenced them, cooling the air as the light faded into eerie, unnatural night, changing the atmosphere into something apocalyptic and alien to the moon wolves drawn back to the higher ground on the rooftop. Gradually stealing away the last of the sunlight till only the corona remained – a glowing fire burning flames and solar flares bursting across the darkened skies… The moon wolves watched with heads thrown high to the solar winds as darkness descended and the world feel silent. The eerie howl of the wolf song echoed on… and on through the monochrome eclipse light.

The Mansionoid Meteorite Showers   16 comments

 

THE MANSIONOID METORITE SHOWERS Open-mouthed smile

Shooting stars! Careering across a clear night sky. Eyes to the skies Europa savoured eagerly the curious stillness of a new moon night enjoying unparalleled views of the darkened skies where the meteors streaming across the galactic bands lit up the sky in bright showers. Magical moments full of mystery she noted knowingly, glancing at the Ice wolf watching intently at her side. For a brief, pulsing moment imagewoman and wolf seemed to shift and merge into one sleek lupine body, glowing silvery-white in the meteorite bursts, and interlaced with silver moon strands, caught in the lunar thrill, scenting the magic of the night shooting stars. Faint, musical auroras danced across the night sky line playing over the telescope Europa was setting up in the darkened region fronting the brightly lit space dog training centre.

Stars in the void

Beyond the late summer skies, far above the atmosphere, the song of the stars echoing gently in the void that was the outer limits. In the velvet blackness of interstellar space that surrounded the Space Dog Training World tiny moons dwarfed by the mother world’s size and luminousity glittered silently in the winking void, tiny space ships moving steadily closer through the silent darkness. Europa stepped away from the telescope and gazed suddenly skywards captured and enthralled by the startling rise of the new moon on a cool alien world.

Soft summer-night moon-wind lifting Icewolf’s silvered coat, dancing with elfin light touch through moon-lit whiskers, tickling her senses witEuropa's Icewolf h a new moon night-time perception. An eagerness to step up into the alienness that drifted on the x-ray beams. Something was different here today…a resonating sense of power emanating, touching the edges of her mind urgently, trying to communicate…a message from the stars…. a shift of energies causing a potential breach. The sounds of the night a haunting interstellar music that stirred distant memories and Icewolf hazed into the past and the future, a thousand worlds away.

Something glinted…beckoned – in the flare of fire-tipped shooting stars…partially camouflaged under the cover of the night. An irregularly-shaped alien object… Europa had never noticed it before but she was drawn to investigate… an artefact… maybe some tracking device…Flashes of shooting star light danced playfully seeming to demand her attention. It resembled a sheet metal scroll. Hieroglyphics? She wondered catching sight of strange unreadable symbols …certainly no language she had ever seen before…Matrixed messages from the stars!

 


Meteorites across

Zoom! Sizzle! Tom leapt for cover as the first of the meteor storm raced unapologetically through the atmosphere and across the clear New Moon skies of The Grinds in a flash and a fire. Hot burning sizzle reminiscent of a particularly busy and excitable barbecue. Tom shook his head trying to clear his vision, worryingly exposed to the elements, he thought wryly pushing what was proving to be wild and thoroughly out of control hair aside thoroughly annoying his inner hair stylist in the process, to take a wary and suspicious sideways look at the skies above him. The thrills and spills of being in a multi-dimensional mansion during a meteor storm!

Vortex

Tom was a little surprised to note that the meteorites seemed to consist of miniature glowing keys to the gates of hell located deep in the basement and that the new moon was morphing in shape between the jar that had contained the currently missing key and a misshapen container of his hair gelthe one that he had lost in an experiment in the bathroom…a sudden chemical stench flashed by and his inner astronomer was quick to recognise a new wave of meteorites to be burning blobs of gloopy hair gel…. This struck Tom as a little strange but as Thomasina was quick to remind him that it was just a girl’s thing…

He gave momentary consideration as to whether this also applied to the sudden appearance of an alarmingly large and active vortex swirling towards the mansion at speed. He decided at roughly the same frightening speed the vortex was approaching at, that it probably didn’t and slammed the window shut in the hope that it would change its mind and go away…it didn’t….!! Surprised smile
