The Drabble Day Challenge is a weekly challenge hosted by http://thewriteaholicblog.wordpress.com/ and it involves writing a Drabble (a short story of 100 words, plus or minus 5) based around a particular prompt. This is my entry into this week’s prompt, which is “VISIT”.
The Whitechapel street is slick; a combination of the exudations of the pea-souper made bright by the scarlet fan spread beneath my subject.
She’s the fifth of my creations this visit. The fifth and the finest.
It is time to leave; and so I wipe the blood from my scalpel and place it carefully in my bag. The streetwalker is laid out artfully upon the cobbles, and I take one last look before tapping the enamelled pin on my lapel.
The ship’s computer operates the transporter and I leave London behind.
I have many more worlds to visit, but I like Earth.
I’ll be back…
