Having been convicted of the charge of scientific heresy for daring to assert he’d discovered another sentient species, he lamented the century that would be lost in confinement before he could try contacting these “humans” again.

This story was written for the weekly Triefextra Writing Challenge. The challenge was to write a story of 36 words including the prompt words: charge, century & lost. 


  1. heh, cute take on the prompt (:

  2. Ha, nice twist! I like this from the alien's perspective.

  3. Ahh, brilliant!! I always love a good twist, and managing to squeeze one into so few words is a real triumph. Nicely done!
