A Need for Action

PHOTO PROMPT © Russell Gayer

The arid landscape was drawing closer every month. The community felt unsettled as fear eroded their complacency and impassiveness. Men and women of Hope had believed their land would remain the anomaly, but the reality was that the parasitic outsiders were slowly decimating their ecosystems. And the aliens’ greed was voracious! The humans who had survived the unexpected onslaught were compelled to band together and work as a team to take their world back. Future generations and the survival of Arcadia depended on it. People would have to stand up and fight for their birthright and what belonged to them!

      1. I don’t know the exact spot, but it is exactly like some of the mine dumps in the Johannesburg area. They erode amazingly. We (completely irresponsibly) used to explore cave systems in them when I was a boy.


  1. Alien parasites destroying the ecosystem–sounds like us invading another world. Great SciFi, I’d love to know how they fight against the Aliens.
