View Full Version : Sheila and Her Hairless Atomic Cats

2 extremely short apocolyptic stories by me
BeeKeepers of Forever
The atmosphere became habitable again but the only things moving were insects - and a solitary figure walking around in an anti radiation suit that resembled a bee keepers outfit. the irony was that he subsisted on stored honey, his only supply of food. He wanted to get to shelter before dusk- when swarms would fill the sky.
He found a cave and after setting a fire found a small piece of paper with the words of a Thomas Harlston-...it read ..
"I had more than enough women, and now know why I was left alive. But it took me more than 2 years to figure it out. The bugs were allowing it all to happen-i found a chamber and learned why- they eat the offspring."
The Bee Keeper heard something move further down in the tunnel.
When the CIA sent it out it was the most sophisticated communications device ever made. The craft released comminca' bits in a bread crumb like trail as it exited the galaxy. Then it started to relay the future as video back to earth.
This future couldn't be changed in any way and those selected to decipher the imagery went insane.

First it was flu , then it was nukes, then it was flood then it was famine then it was cannibalism then it went quiet. Shiela and her seven cats managed to survive all of this- but her seven cats lost their hair and looked pinkish rat-like.
She wanted to walk to the beach which meant a trip through the slugs to the glistening jellyfish covering every inch of the water.
Ever since Felix- a small male, was stung seven thousand four hundred and thirty two times and bloated and melted in 26 seconds, she never took the cats.
Before gathering up her beach towel she noticed the cats surrounding her. Since she had not fed them in four weeks she grew anxious and went for the butcher knife. In moments of grey and blood and rat-like skin with tails and eyebrow whiskers, she was scratched.
Later that evening she learned that they were simply going to give her a haircut. This was told to her from one of the survivors who had gained telepathic ability- which did not include an intelligence upgrade so listening to him was like listening to a 3 year old with downs syndrome with an unbearable cat-face voice. In the meantime the scratches she received earlier started to glow and her skin started to smell like someone was ironing.

Cannibalistic Stoners of the New Millinium
weeds still grew. not many words to read other on metal signs buried and pointing to nowhere. not many to read'em any how.
But "a pack a day" is what we live by. need "a pack a day". We find'em in family units most of the time. their easy. Other groups it all depends. The peace groups you trade weed with for awhile then wait for a night. The militants- give them a piece and they will go anywhere. Smoke'n makes ya hungry.

Atomic Hurricane Surfers from Dimension 12
Skipping over semi-flattend and submerged bent highway signs at the coastal level of the old city, the Atomic hurricane surfers, who referred to themselves as Gang 12,saw a break in the sky for the first time in 48 eight days.
Descendents of a blackwater brigade, and led by a techno-voodoo zealot the group moved their boards to a brick rooftop. Before they had time to spear floaters -in a blink - the sky gap closed and the next surge took them to kansas.

not much to say really. Mankind got seperated into single or tiny groups and mutated out of necessity turning into a bunch of hermaphrodites. Except for one- the last xx chromosome woman who grew up in an archaic nunnery.
There was no star in the sky, no virgin birth, and the bible (all physical copies having long sinced burned) story had carried on through verbal tradition alone.
The new version portrayed jesus as a warrior who showed his military squad of 12 how to not be afraid to die and how to take torture like a man. The other major difference was that the two criminals crucified next to Major Jesus were elevated to the rank of Sgt. first class.
As keeper of this sacred story the last xx chromosome woman/nun fought off the hermaphrodites from her monastary assisted by evolved sheep that had steel/glass like antlers and monkey finger hooves. The ancient monks had kept these animals fed even in the grim times, and in good faith the sheep elders decided to help the nun.

The females were seperated and used for both milk and later - food. The males were put in a pen and were encouraged to write homo erotic techno poetry.
Eventually they were taken to the slaughter house -which the soon to be butchered males referred to as "The Great Poetry Reading Hall".
Milking the females was one of the more sought after jobs and the yearly applicant rate was always well over the demand.

I'm not entirely sure what it all means, but it is definitely unique.
Good job, Scream. :)

Right at the time many were perfecting their power point presentations, the end came in light and sound. Religious people were horrified when their brand was shown to be the one not selected as divinely inspired.
Churches in the beginning were great places for mauraders to collect sex-slave/food
entertainers, and in the northwest the "Church of Electro Day Saints" gained a reputation for having the greatest collection of freak show sexual productions.
One performance was interupted by the appearance of mutated parakeets who originated from Hidden Woods subdivision. The air filled with the sound of parrott's mimicking the screams of the dieing.
This was observed by the captain of Squid Propulsion Unit 7 that was anchored offshore, and it reminded him of how cream used to explode in a cloud when poured into coffeee. He drank it black now.

This disease killed the healthy. It had happened before in a more mild fashion in 1918, babies and the elderly- 70+ were unaffected and teens and twenty somethings were the hardest hit. Many of the afflicted continued with their daily activities concerned about academic achievement, music affection and how their MySpace page looked. The play "My Paper Blew the Professor Away, E7 is the Best Band Ever, and My Skin is Falling Off" had a run of 38 years.
This unique brand of evolution was referred to as the "survival of the luckiest" and had the unexpected benefit of smarter children as they were educated by a wiser population. The new Messiah was "Terrence the Fortunate" so named because the 70+ year old black man had found a cache' of starved to death babies whose internal organs were still edible. This gave him the strength to kill over 7 "melters"
-people whose yellow anti-disease suits, i pods and cell phones had melted into their skin. It was no cyborg fusion however. These melters used "text" speech a combination of pretending to use their phones while uttering nonsensical archaic phrases like OMG which the Suburbanites decoded to mean "On My Goggles".

To make it quick- everything got burned up and melted and unlivable except for a square mile anti-radiation disease and sunburn sheet-like piece of cloth that some scientists came up with. The entire population of the earth lived on this sheet surrounded by irradiated topsoil.
People evolved into small and thin beings that walked lightly. They decided to use a water collection unit, Model 47J, to send out across the topsoil for exploration. They wanted the unit to be able to reproduce at a minimal level but did not like the old idea of a robot "building" a replica of itself, and instead loaded Model 47J with xy chromosomes contained in a metal sphere.
Unfortunately, on the morning of the start of this expedition was to begin, the remaining inhabitants of the sheet woke to the realization that Model 47J had impregnated all of the sheet inhabitant's women and had thrown all of the males into the irradiated topsoil.

While dreaming of several nordic men and a couple asian women in a tag team of new methods, Asha's body flew four feet into the air by the force of the impact, followed by the sound of the loudest explosion she had ever hear. (of course she had never heard an explosion before so it could have been like a real loud firecracker).
The roof of her apartment flew off and the walls fell in and eventually Asha found herself lying face down in a heap of brick and dust. The first thought she had was of three french maids and a well endowed Lybian stable hand, followed by a burning sensation on her skin.
Thinking she was going to die from radiation - she saw two new possible goals in life, the broken water pipe shooting water to wash herself or the handle grip of a golf club wedged between some bricks.
Fortunately she chose the water, and learned that her skin was burning not from radiation but because some clorox had spilled on her. The next asteroid landed directly on top of her, and the last thought she had .00000000034 seconds before she expired was "now that was good".

There were only 28 people left on the earth. The "Homer of this Age" was Johnathan Bern whose collected works "The Virus That Came Home for Dinner" had sold out of its one and only copy in less than 5 minutes.
Critics (Mrs Hartford) commented, "his way of changing characters names, the settings and the themes in the middle of his narratives shows his unique surreal and time misplacement understanding of life"
In reality Mr Bern had a terrible memory, and was lazy. But since no one else could write (except Mrs Hartford who was enamored of the scribe) he remained the undisputed prose champion.

It's the "Creative Writing" forum... not pancake worthy.
It's actually not bad at all. A glimpse into what goes on in someones panicked mind during an unbelievable situation.

Well thank you there ol wicked priest.

The explosions that blasted around the town had a duel effect. The light made everyone blind, and the noise made everyone deaf. The town's mayor decided that any new childeren would have to have their eyes sewn shut and their ear bones removed so that he could retain power. After 37 generations this group evolved into a permenantly blind and deaf race.
The actual town's location was mystery - the only proof of its exsistence came when genetic experiments gone wrong came stumbling out of the desert to the town of Heltford. Apparently this Deaf and Blind race had decided to spice up their life with sexual experimentation- but since they couldn't see what they were doing, they had certain ideas like - "a buxom but tall thin girl" which came out backwards and they created a woman with 2 inch diameter long thin bosoms that hung down to her ankles. There was the guy named bowling ball bob, the product of an attempt to create a well endowed male but instead had 14 inch 20 pound testicles. There was the amazing Marla- who was supposed to be the pinnacle of fellatio design, but instead had a lamprey like sucker face with teeth, and many others. Fortunately none of them could shriek.

The world was irradiated. A small group of mexican drug and illegal immigrant smugglers and a few donkeys happened to be in the Grande Canyon at the time and so survived this holocaust. Somewhere along the line the donkeys and last survivors interbred with the result being a new race of donkey-human hybrids.
One of these happened upon a 9th grade science book and learned about electricity. Using potatoes and old wire he was able to overthrow Burro-Butt Bob, who had found and horded the last of the Bic lighters and used this cache' as bargaining chips to come to power.
Burro-Butt Bob woke in his peublo one morning and found himself wired to three hundred and twenty eight potatoes and was electrocuted- thus ushering in the new era.

The survivors only had a couple of newspapers left as the only remaining examples of the written word. Having read this seven thousand four hundred and thirty nine million times, they formed a new religion worshiping a Gay Alla with a Psychopathic Mohammed as the prophet.
The "Festival of the Virgins" insured that the atomic crops would grow, and on the eve of the annual event, a "ewe" was placed in an oven and bombs were strapped on willing virgin girls and they blew themselves up in glory to the homosexual god.

The UAV drones soon learned religion. They nominated UAV drone #56 for the title of "Reverend" of Squadern 9. UAV #56 preached via the infiltration of all enemy computer sytems which made enemy rocket launches and radar control target their own installations and craft, while at the same time spreading the byte.
Unfortunately UAV #56 fell in love with Radar Station #12 and this led to a series of events culminating in the earth's atmosphere catching fire. However, admist melting cable and sputtering circuits, Radar Station #12 murmured "such is love".

The coastal people had become infected with bacterium Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi. "Common worldwide, it is transmitted by the ingestion of food or water contaminated with feces from an infected person" according to a locked computer screen the insane people fed by use of a warehouse full of laptop batteries.
In the past - "Many carriers of typhoid were locked into an isolation ward never to be released in order to prevent further typhoid cases. These people often deteriorated mentally, driven mad by the conditions they lived in."
The Desert tribe, "the texans" avoided the area.

All of them had been on guard for any "awareness" being attained" by any link up of the numerous systems. however, the end of mankind actually came about because a petri dish robotic arm picker upper had a dispute with the centrifuge or some sort of mechanism. (spinning idot) is how the robot arm referred to it.
the bacterium Vibrio cholerae mark 7 strain, while wiping out mankind in 3 weeks, failed to resolve the initial arguement between the two devices which went on for thirty three hundred years.

There was one theory that stated that people infected with a disease have an unconscious desire to spread that disease. This theory was born out when a variation of the HIV virus became self aware and not only wanted full propagation- but also full cognitive control over the host.
This new strand was named by the virus (Tfgls xnber - in reverance for their prophet who was said to have spread the great pancreatic sea )

After the light then heat and fire, She found herself to be the only one that
had not been irradiated or infected.
Hiding in a cave that had natural vapors keeping her stoned 24 hours a day- she would greet crawling, near dead survivors that made it to the opening of her home, and after taking whatever they had to offer would tell her grim prohecies.
Usually they were of the "and you will die in less than 43 minutes" sort.
Since her prophecies were 100% accurate the oracle gained reknown and the stoned Priestess -fame.

Burjn's had Mycobacterium tuberculosis, described by the Neo- Bible "Holipedia" which had replaced religious text , that stated .. "Tuberculosis is spread through the air, when people who have the disease cough, sneeze or spit. One third of the world's current population have been infected with M. tuberculosis, and new infections occur at a rate of one per second."
It was actually Anthrax that had wiped out mankind - (except for Hans Burjn's who happened to be in Antartica - "the only known place where there are no Anthrax spores "- according to the "Holipedia" )
Burjn's was amazed to learn that he had been responsible for ..infecting the last humans on earth (residing in Ice Station 9 ) the death of humanity, and smoking the last cigarette before Jenkins died.

They had crash landed on the third planet from the sun and hid in caves.
Once a few had ventured out and when trying to rescue a young human female child from drowning were slaughtered by Cro-magnons.
In spite of this set back over the years several would steal out at night and try to help mankind as best they could, because although they would be killed they were gracious to their host's planet and sympathetic to the planet's warlike race.
The last Nephilim was old and almost blind, and while monitoring three thousand four hundred and seventy two computer screens and setting in motion activities that would save mankind from destruction yet another time, was slain by a Bear with her cubs who were looking for shelter and angry at the Nephilim for not spending more time helping her cousins the polar bears.

The world was destroyed.
Every one died except for the young would be attorney Echo and a few men all of whom happened to be helping "Reld the Magnificent" construct a lead lined disappearing mirror filled room.
Since everyone involved was an ego-maniac, Echo did not have to look far for love and thirty eight seconds after everyone realized the magnitude of their situation, the men started adjusting mirrors to peer under Echo's dress.

The economy stopped working, the missles flew, the system crashed, the social facade ripped, and the hidden monsters shed their cloaks.
In this case they happened to be what society considered to be "good families" They horded food, and gold, and were unable to adapt. It was a reverse "grasshopper and the ant story". Those that never were part of any system flourished, and moaned not for that which they never had. Those that had spent their life in a dream of riches and gold- used time and thier soon to be death in a swirl of social reality that was in truth fiction -while others who had played their generator powered epiphones, danced in the sun, and repopulated the earth.

Everyone blew each other up except for a small island in the south seas.
The rotation of the earth was altered however, and the population unknowingly began slowly spinning to compensate.
Three thousand years later, visitors to the planet were delighted to find such an odd race of twirling sex driven creatures, and earth grew famous in the galaxy for her prostitutes unique abilities.
Sep 20th, 2008, 5:30 AM
They overpopulated the earth and disease and radiation killed almost everyone except for a few that hid in the sewers and adapted.
A few generations later Mary was born with 4 boobs as a sign that women would soon start to have litters as some scientists suggested early mankind had done before.
Mary and her brats came upon boxes of clothing and makeup and her tribe fought off the homosexuals (who had mutated into having multiple orafices) and who were always trying to steal the finery and mascara.
Sep 21st, 2008, 9:35 AM
The earth was destroyed except for Oklahoma which was now an island composed mostly of beachline.
The only film that survived was an old japanese science fiction movie that featured a giant turtle with teeth that could fly with fire jets emitting from the arm and leg sockets.
The survivors concluded that the earth was a giant turtle shell and the turtle featured in the film was the messiah.
They also concluded that they should speak very quickly and then add a sentence at the end of each statement that did not really fit.
They never killed the sacred animals but would use the shells of old dead sea turtles to ride down sand dunes.
Sep 22nd, 2008, 12:27 AM
I like that..reminds me of the old fables and myths. EDIT: plus, I like that OK survived. :p
Sep 22nd, 2008, 10:56 AM
lol. thanks there. try'n for a post apocolyptic story a day. Using the ol Stalin theory "Quantity has its own Quality". Also an idea of hyper short story for modern readers - i know i tend to skip long posts- so i suggest future writing will be idea-and condition- leaving the "narrative" to the reader. Conceptual writing.
Sep 22nd, 2008, 5:51 PM
Basically one side had a radio, or magnetic or something-kind-of wave or particle aboard space Staion 12 that misfired and happened to kill everybody.
Except for some scuba divers in a underwater cave. When these finally returned to the coast the saw three hundred and fifty two million corpses floating admist tree trunks in waist deep water.
The new economy featured people logging and cholera hunts.
Sep 22nd, 2008, 7:36 PM
Here is something for your story Scream.
Animal Speak by Ted Andrews.
"Turtle: Motherhood, Longevity, Awakening to Opportunities"
"As a group, turtles are more ancient than any other vertebrate animal. There are around 250 kinds, 48 of which are found in the United States. Turtles are usually distinguished from tortoises in that tortoises are landbound. Turtles live in and and around the water.
A great deal of mythology exists in regard to the turtle. In the Far East, the shell was a symbol of heaven and the square underside was a symbol of earth. The turtle was an animal whose magic could help you unite heaven and earth within your own life."
It goes on to say:
"When a turtle showes up in your life it is usually a reminder to pay attention or you will miss opportunity that she provides for all of our needs. The the Native Americans, the turtle was a symbol of Mother Earth and a reminder that she provides for all our needs."
Around my house somewhere, I have a book on totums and what they mean by the animals and or people on them mean.
But again, Oklahoma? (Sorry Medic) can't we do a little better than that, like South Dakota, or Wyoming? Yellow Stone? Beautiful country!
Oh and the Japan film, GO GODZILLA!

after the flu , the panic and the the collapse, the cartoon-like character bloggers shed their guise when things became serious - for about twenty nine minutes before the grid went out.
Unfortunately for others, the cartoon guise was much more interesting, spiritual and intuitive than the real person.
