The Saturday Centus challenges us to write a piece within 100 words, based on a prompt. I encourage you to jump aboard. Just click on the graphic above. It's great practice, and I've met wonderful peers this way. Plus, Jenny's our favorite teacher. I'm continuing the sci-fi series, with apologies to anyone who doesn't appreciate some Spock spoofing. This is a sequel to my last centus right here. The prompt is bolded.
Impotent under pressure, lil Spock distracts her.
"Look, Rita!" He points at the Sirius chamber pane in the asteroid. "We're hitting a hella rad meteor shower. Uh, April showers bring May flowers. Right?" Giggle. Snort.
"What the *bleep* is wrong with you, Spock? Just stick that tiny thing in already!"
The Alternative Temptation Matrix shoots dollars at Spock's head as he ponders a different method.
The camera zooms in on an unfulfilled Rita.
Jones announces: Will lil Spock succeed at failing to do it? What will come of this young couple's premature explorations? Stay tuned.
