The Knockout Blow

A Mastodon writing prompt story. These are science fiction short stories (usually 480 characters or less), based on an image generated by EW Doc Parris using MidJourney.

The stories are originally posted on Mastodon via my personal account.

Sara could feel the numbness quickly spread as the stunstars hit. She tried to get to her knees, to reduce the pain of hitting the ground. But she was only partway when they took full effect. Sara toppled, hit, and the pain was the only thing she could feel.

She was still conscious, aware of everything. A silver/gray face loomed over her.

“Your aunt says it’s time to come home” the deep metallic bass intoned as she was lifted from the ground.
