The Abduction by CpSingleton © 2016


He looked across the hectic room, with no idea why. He was happy reading. The book was insightful and funny; the open chicken sandwich was tasty and fresh, he had no reason to look up at the busy cafe. He didn’t need to see the customers coming, going, eating or desperately trying to control unruly toddles in rickety high chairs. It was a strange compulsion indeed for somebody such as him.

He was glad he had when his wandering eyes met her oval brown pair.

She smiled back.

He looked around quickly to see if there was another more worthy recipient. 

Nope. Didn’t seem to be.

When he looked back she was smiling wider than before. Not mockingly. Almost invitingly.

He smiled back. Before nervously returning his gaze to words he could no longer discern.

When he looked up again she was chatting to another lady.

His chance seemingly gone.

Damn! He thought. She’s stunning!

Not in a conventional, twenty-first century plastic bomb-doll way. She was almost unearthly.

That’s it, he thought. Unearthly.

He snatched quick glances at her. Her beautifully sculpted figure was like a magnet to him.

She sat like she was floating in the chair. Her every movement flowed like it contained a deep, beautiful, alien message.

He cringed inwardly at what must appear like he was a stalker, gawping.

Give up, dickhead, he scolded himself. You buggered it up.

He turned back to the book, feeling his cheeks redden.


About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.

  1. OK. You suck. Writing stories is one thing I can’t do. I know it’s hard to believe but I’m really not good at everything (just most thing). Looking forward to reading more.
