Picture Prompt : Time to Write

This week Rachel gives us a picture to inspire our writing:
The robot stretched its single limb investigating everything around and below it.
The townsfolk were in awe as the Creator pushed buttons and caused it to wander at will.
The disconnected eye on the end of a solitary finger began to glow and pulse.
The Creator pushed some more buttons, causing it to bend and bow towards the crowd, like a dog sniffing a bone.
The audience laughed.
The light grew stronger, clothes started to smoulder, hair to frizz, skin to blister.
The excitement turned to panic and fear.
The Creator jabbed at his buttons.
The Creature turned its eye on him, swung its limb at an impossible speed and knocked the control fifty yards down the street, the Creator’s dismembered hands still attached.
He bled out where he stood.
The light turned into a leer, the Ray deadly to those in its path as street lamps everywhere switched on regardless of the time of day.
It would gather its armies and begin a New Robotic Age.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
