A Man in Moccasins

A Man in Moccasins

A Story by Kusa Da Shin Avira
"

Flash fiction story...

"
It was the kind of cool weather that seemed to bring out the best qualities in people. Everyone smiling, the darkest fragments of life pushed back into the furthest recesses of the mind. It all seemed to have fallen from the sky one day, at least that's what they were claiming.
Meteorologists were baffled by the convenience and sudden transitional nature of a usual gloomy forecast. But there it was, glowing and shimmering for anyone to see.
I walked up to the thing that supposedly brought about this sudden change and as I came closer, the thing shined brighter, but I could sense that it enjoyed my company, so I decided to ask it questions.
"All right, uh, thing from the sky, I said. What's your name? You do indeed have one right?"
But I didn't receive a response from this, well, thing. It just sat there, at least I assume it was sitting, and glowed quietly all alone.
At first, I thought it quite rude to ignore someone asking some "thing" a question, but I passed it off as something foreigners might do if it didn't speak the language. After all, it did fall from the sky a few hours ago. So I decided to give it another chance.
"Where do you come from, um, sir?"
The thing just sat there and glowed a little more.

Have you ever seen the Gods must be crazy? This reminds me of that. Foreign object falls from the sky and then a series of unfortunate events and mishaps follow. It was a soda pop bottle. This has that feel of a man who is ignorant of such things stumbling on a fallen satellite of something.
