She boarded the packed train and found an empty grab handle.

“Hold on tight, missy, we’re in for a bumpy ride,” said the old man whose seat was aligned with her handle.

Lenore, perplexed, gripped the handle tighter as she gazed into the man’s icy-blue eyes.

Everything started to violently shake. A sound like roaring jets filled the train, the subway, the world. Sparks from metal on metal, the train skidded to a stop.

Lenore ran off the train, up the subway steps. There it was. Big and metallic and alien. A spaceship – with icy-blue eyes at each porthole.

A 100-word story but power-packed. Well done, Brinda.

Hello, Brinda. Your 100-words story was intense. There is much that has happened in just a few words. Very well done.

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
