A Good Idea Down The Toilet

Mel has special abilities some would even say "super powers". She saved Ten people from a collapsing building. The eleventh person died. Now Mel is in prison. These are harrowing but also exciting times. We have found proof of life outside of Earth. While she witnesses this from prison, something goes horribly wrong and she writes about it. This is her short memoir.

I DON'T BELONG HERE by Edgar Ribon is an extremely isolated account of some sort of invasion. Absolutely nothing is revealed, not even Mel's powers. Between the lack of details and Mel's erratic journaling, this flash fiction piece has very little cohesion. The author had a good idea, but the presentation ruined any chance of being entertaining.

As always,
