Out of Place
by: D.R. Humphreys (theDreamWriter) It was mid-morning by the time they dropped the paratroopers at their destination. Nineteen other Douglas C-47's delivered the same cargo to engage the enemy below, in the active field. The copilot and pilot watched, as one parachute after another, disappeared out the door to their designated spot. Twenty-eight men jumped from each of twenty planes, totaling five hundred sixty men, floating to the ground with most to their deaths. They were under intense fire from the enemy and several other planes were hit. Plumes of dark smoke filled the air as explosions sounded around them in a maddening exhibit that could only be described as hell.
An Unreasonable Visitation
by: D.R. Humphreys (the DreamWriter) Thousands lay dead on a field, slippery with blood. Two remained walking... Private Gish and the Simian Cyborg that accompanied him in battle. Strangely, the sensors from the alien ship did not detect Gish. The cyborg was undetectable because it wasn't human and only partially flesh. Both soldiers fell to their stomachs, behind a pile of bodies, covered with scarab beetles, to watch the ship. Barely visible, in the dark, it's interior lights silhouetted the alien warriors, marching down the descending ramp to the ground. Gish's time was limited and perhaps the cyborg. It was time to pray.
by: D.R. Humphreys (the DreamWriter) Visiting a different country every year on vacation and invading those little rustically rural areas to practice your hand at your hobby, it's easy to get lost and suddenly not recognize where you are. Things aren't where you thought they were or look different. As you search, you stumble, and things become more confusing. You suddenly find yourself away from people subject to their uncomfortable absence.
Falling for Laura
by: D.R. Humphreys (theDreamWriter) I looked over at my love, as we began speeding towards the Earth, knowing somehow, we'd be together, forever. Still, I wondered why I was there, in the middle of a free-fall through the air, hurling towards the ground.
