The Friday Fictioneers is a group writing flash fiction each week. Rochelle Wisoff-Fields leads us all in a merry chase to write a 100 word story based upon a photo prompt. The word limit isn’t strict limit. It’s rather bendable. Anyone may join in by reviewing the guidelines at the prompt, and letting their imagination free. This week’s photo comes from Danny Bowman. My story begins after the photo.
Genre: Science Fiction

Shortly, an ominous Human voice responded.
The captain waited at the ship’s teleport pad.
“Success?” He asked.
Tchothypil presented the six boxes. “Six Deep-Dish Combination pizzas, as ordered, Sir!”
