As the plane broke up in midair, Jake thought, “I should’ve ordered the steak.”
He awoke driving a pod with a wriggling tail. A homunculus streaking towards a glowing orb.
Jake awoke to blinding lights, wishing for that ribeye.
He screamed, “Gimme steak!” It sounded like simple wailing.
A giant nipple thrust itself into his mouth.
Jake suckled contentedly.
“Who needs steak?” he thought. “This rules!”
This week at Grammar Ghoul Press’ Chimera 66 writing challenge, the word prompt is: Homunculus. This word may not be familiar to all so here’s the definition, “A supposed microscopic but fully formed human being from which a fetus was formerly believed to develop.” I hope you enjoyed my interpretation. Look here for more stories based upon the prompt: http://www.grammarghoulpress.com/chimera-66-writing-challenge-9/
