Scrambled Signals?   

By Tessa Smeigh

“Linda what did Joey do with my communicator. What am I supposed to do with this? I can’t get anything up, but a picture of people holding blank word bubble signs,” Ron asked. “I have to contact the leader. Now!”
“Here, you can use mine and see if you can make some other contact,”

Lights in the Night

By Tessa Smeigh

Hearing helicopters in the distance prompted Ron and his family to move quickly for shelter. The graveyard was too open.
“Do you think they know we weren’t terminated Ron,” Linda asked.
“Well, the fact that the gold also disappeared may have been a hint. Stay out of the lights!”

Where in Hell?

By Tessa Smeigh

“Where in hell have we landed,” Ron asked Linda.
“I don’t know, you have the control in your back pocket. You must’ve hit the wrong button since it was pre-programmed with the next destination.”
“Joey, were you playing with this?”
“Yes dad, I thought it was my phone, sorry.”

Gone?

By Tessa Smeigh

“Well?”
“Found the gold sir,” the VP said.
“Take them to the termination room. I want them gone, now,” the director said.
They were locked in and the terminal started it’s count down. Huddled together they held tight. “5, 4, 3, 2, 1.” FLASH!
They were gone. So was the gold.

Still Alive!

By Tessa Smeigh

“Where’s the gold, Ron.” the director asked angrily.
Ron remained quiet.
“Did you search them when you took them out of the car,” the director demanded.
“No!”
“Where’s the car?”
“Compactor!”
“You fool, the gold is probably hidden in the car. Lock ’em up in Sue’s office and go see,”

Picture Boards

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

My mom sadly passed away 6 years ago this month. There are a lot of details to take care of for a memorial service, least of all, the picture boards of mom’s life. We went through all the boxes of pictures at dad’s house, and of course, all the relatives added their favorite photos.

The day of the service the picture boards are all out in front for people to peruse until the service started and then afterward as she was cremated.

Choosing the pictures was really difficult as we tried to make sure everyone in the family was represented.

Caught Again!

By Tessa Smeigh

As they pulled the car around to the back of the shed, they noticed a car was following them. Not sure where it came from or if it was a danger, they pulled around the shed and went out the other side, which they soon found was blocked and they were hauled back to headquarters.

Will They All Show Up For The Game?

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Roger was itching to get out to the basketball courts and play a game. That’s if all the guys show up. Somedays not everyone shows and they have to play short of players. The ones who come don’t want to miss time playing so they do the best they can with what they have.

It had poured all afternoon, but it was hot enough to start drying out the courts. They just had to wait a little bit longer. The sun was already poking out of the clouds.

Roger headed out to the field, stopping for Dan on the way.

Bear In The Road

By Tessa Smeigh

“Found a bum and an old car that runs. We could go back to the amusement park and camp out in the shed again,” Ron says. Linda agreed and they piled in the car and headed out. No one seemed to be following them. “Is that a bear in the road?”
“Yes, it is.”
“Well drive around it.”

Unemployment Lines

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Judging by the long queue of people it was no doubt another company had closed, and those employees were standing in line in the rain waiting to get into the building so they could fill out their unemployment papers. The quicker you filled them out, the faster you started to get paid.

I learned from experience that you needed to be in line before 7:00 AM if you wanted to get into the office that day as they shut the doors in your face once a certain amount of people had arrived. The employees did not want to work overtime.
