Hump Day Kick Start – Glow Edition

Hump Day Kick Start – for your muse, a writing picture prompt, or just a visual treat.

Well damn. Got a little something on ya.

For today’s prompt, tell me what’s going on? What is that and what does it mean? Is it a new virus that could wipe out civilization? What if it’s the antidote and only a chosen few are given it? If so, who is this guy and why would he be inoculated with it? Or did he steal it? Could that vampire blood? If so, why is it on him? What if he is a wounded alien in need of medical attention? Maybe it isn’t anything so extreme or nefarious. Maybe it’s a new type of artist paint that could revolutionalize the art world. Or reindeer pee.

You tell me. What’s the story or caption the pic.

    Wow, thank you Jenn. That picture is perfect for me right now. Don’t know that I will get it written, but definitely will use this in current WIP

    So,” said Jane, “you’ve been watching Predator again?”
    “No,” replied John. “This is different.”
    “Different how?”
    John tried to think how to explain it.
    “This time it was a FEMALE alien,” he began cautiously, “and she swore to me that nobody would know what we’d done.”
    “Guess that’s out the window now,” said Jane dryly.
    John nodded sadly.
    “So, what’s that stuff on your hand?”
    “Uh, she explained…kinda,” he replied.
    “And?”
    “It sorta corresponds to human sweat — pheremones or something. You know, the more she got excited, the more she, um, exuded this alien sweat stuff.”
    “So, are you planning to wash it off?”
    “Can’t.”
    “Why not?”
    “Not completely sure I understand it, but apparently alien sweat has a half-life.”
    “You mean it’s radioactive?”
    “Well, not to worry,” said John. “She said it doesn’t harm fellow aliens.”
    “Hello! Just because you had your hands and lips all over that alien girl doesn’t mean you’re an E-T. You’re actually human… I mean, as close to human as a randy gorilla.”
    “Hmmm. So you think I’m contaminated with some sort of radioactive poisoning?”
    “Did you seriously not think through this before you seduced that Martian lass?”
    “Well, I’d had a few beers by then…”

    Nice, Jeff! I don’t know whether to laugh or cringe. Maybe a little of both.

  5. jbrayweber says:

    Well, I wasn’t thinking that, so…ewww.

  6. jeff7salter says:

    LOL… maybe I should start over with this prompt…

  7. jbrayweber says:

    It’s all good, my friend.

  8. jeff7salter says:

    thanks, but I really should swap this one (below) for the first one I posted — if you don’t mind deleting the other one. I visit here a lot and I don’t want my poorly phrased reply to offend any of your readers.

    I like it, Jeff! Your prompt guys make me smile.

  11. She ran halfway down the hall and flung herself against a side wall, waiting. Someone opened the door after her and she heard two male voices separate moving toward her. When they stopped no one stood in her place.
    “Huh,” said one. “Just a gust of wind I guess.”
    The other gave no response and Elektra stood waiting without breathing. When she heard the door open and shut again, she crept out of the first doorway she’d found and inhaled deeply with relief that didn’t last long. As she crouched against the wall a red light in her left palm began pulsing brightly. Stunned she held it up in front of her face, the light from it highlighting her face and then shading it in the dark hallway. She tucked it under a thigh to hide it but at that same moment, a beeping noise emanated from it as well. She squeezed her eyes shut and she banged the back of her head against the wall.
    A tracking device—I should have known.
    “A gust of wind doesn’t blink red and sure as hell doesn’t beep,” one of the men said.

    Wow, this pic was almost perfect for The Brede Chronicles excerpt. That’s what I posted above. Hope you like it…

    Very intriguing, Patti. Makes me ask all sorts of questions. Good job!
