Friday Fictioneers: The Demise of Steen Hig

Hello Dear Readers!  In this blog’s search for an upstanding noun, a decent verb and a sober adjective, no stone has been left unturned in the fertile fields of ideas.

That is why this blog was delighted to stumble upon this new writing  challenge called Friday Fictioneers hosted by the blog of Rochelle Wisoff-Fields-Addicted to Purple.


Write a one-hundred word story that has a beginning, middle and end (Using the picture provided for a prompt.)  


The Demise of Steen Hig

Steen Hig was born in the 26th century. The computerns who tended the human incubator nests had high hopes for Steen Hig. People did too, or what was left of them since the plague.  Steen’s DNA had been microfactured to rule an empire not of people but of computers who masqueraded as people.

When Steen turned 31, the ceremonies were performed; his implants activated — while his tearful father watched.  And just like that, Steen Hig became a god.

Yet it was only a knife that brought Steen Hig to his mortal conclusion.

“Absolute power corrupts absolutely,” his father explained wiping clean the knife.

Hey that was fun!  You ought to give it a try Dear Readers!  Have a great weekend!

Until next time . . . I love you

  1. I’m assuming his father was a computer masquerading as a human too. I loved the name. Welcome to Friday Flash Fictioneers. I look forward to reading more from you, Linda.

    • I like your assumption. If I ever develop this story I’ll have to go with that angle. Thank you for the welcome and thanks for taking the time to come by and visit rgayer55!

  2. Dear Linda,
    Welcome to Friday Fictioneers where leave no adverb or adjective unturned.
    Loved your original story. I do think you could use a comma between “People” and “too”.
    I look forward to reading more from you.

    • Oh you’re right! HA! And here I thought I thought of it myself. Logans Run was 21 in the movie, but I think it was 31 in the book or vice versa . . . okay now I’m going to have to go to to goog.

      Thanks for coming by Perry! 😀

Please leave a comment. I need help finishing my sentences.
