Here’s my 100 word story.

Night Visitors

They’ve arrived, the capsules from space, emitting a low hum. Their sheen catches the interior light, framed by the darkness of the night sky outside. The super-web strung between the capsules glints. Where is the robot spider that spun it ?

What is happening in this room ? Why here, why now ?

The sheen shifts into a stellar radiance, the low hum grows into an insistent pulse.

Ready for …? A launch pad  ? A homing device ?… a trap for someone entering this room ?

Upstairs Mr. Morph sleeps on, undisturbed.
