This Alien Flame: #STaD 2016 Day Three

Standard disclaimer and rating:

I don’t own Star Trek (though a case could be made for it owning me!) In writing these stories, I intend no copyright infringement, and make no monetary profit. They are a tribute, and a celebration.

This story is rated T (teen).

Sexual references hinted at; nothing remotely graphic.

This is a continuation of, and the sequel to my Day One story, “Another Manner of Flame.” It’s not necessary to read those stories to understand this drabble – a story told  in only 100 words – although it would add clarity.

This Alien Flame

The scent suffuses every breath. The book and her human  – illogical, indelible temptations.  

Two weeks without meditation, food, or tea. She can scarcely take water. She hungers only for Trip; for answers.  

Sleep promises human caresses, illogical acts not intended for procreation.  Should she seek a healer to cure this madness? Confess her error? Erase Trip, and what his mind held?  

She seizes the book; tearing, revealing. Breath harsh, clutching its scent. Stopped by the image.

Two humans.  


She stares. Blood surges hot with illogical promise.  Shaking fingers pair, reach, daring to touch this alien flame.


I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!

Take a chance! Type something in this box, and see what happens! =D
