The Glitterminator

Post by munsi » Sun Jan 17, 2010 4:05 am

The tanker truck behind him exploded, a ball of fire engulfing him, and for a moment he was gone, seemingly destroyed in the blast. He couldn’t have survived that. Nobody could. I was finally safe.

But a moment later, he walked out through the fire, flesh burned away to nothing, metallic skeleton revealed, and shambled impassively toward me, determined, murderous, unstoppable.

Machine.

As he walked out of the shade of a nearby building and into the sun, he glittered and shone beautifully in the sun, like an angel.

They should never have let Stephanie Meyer write the new Terminator flick.

Ya, that'd be a horribly shameful thing to do. I'm shocked. I mean 13 posts? Who do you think you are?

(apparently there is no penalty here for over-posting here, provided you are strange and don't spill your coffee on the furniture...)

Edit: (so as to try not to be an over-poster) Go way back in the drabbles section and you'll find my 40 some drabble postings in about as many days, with multiples during some days, and you'll find that the readers here love drabbles, have a passion for them, can't get enough of them.

Oh sure, they may call you on little things like grammer and gerund abuse, but it's in the spirit of helpfulness.

In short, that's what the drabbles sub-forum is for. If you are feeling especially fecund and wordy, please feel free to spill it out here.

Ha, I hardly think that you are a full blown case of drabbleitis. Keep em coming, a new Munsi drabble is joining the list of anticipated clicks.

I am not so familiar with Twilight, but this made me smirk.
