2,148 Local Area Residents Missing – Friday Fictioneers

belton-lap-pool

2,148 people are missing after a flash of white light appeared in the sky Tuesday. Area woman Whitney Miser captured the moment on film at Splasher’s pool. “One minute my son was doing the backstroke, and the next he was gone!” she told channel 7 news. “It’s coincidence I took the picture at the exact moment it happened.” She hopes the financial reward for the photo will make up for losing her son. Local resident Leonard Fibber reports every member of his church is missing, though he doubts it was the rapture as a big silver disc fell into his cow pasture the same day. “It’s a big’n,” Leonard says. “Big enough to hold all them people that’r missin’.” Channel 7 is unable to confirm this however, as Leonard has a big rifle and will not let us onto his property.

  1. it looks like it’s just the beginning. more people will be gone including the guy named leonard. by then, channel 7 folks would have a field day. 🙂

  2. Nice story. Great news channel. Will reward for a picture really make up for the missing son? I liked the characters in the story. Everyone was unique.

  3. Some of the news you hear on TV is almost as odd and ridiculous as this story, Rachel. I especially liked the part about the farmer with the big rifle. Wouldn’t you know someone like Mrs. Miser would get a picture and be thinking of the money even when she lost her son? Funny in a dark way but still funny. Well written. 🙂 — Suzanne
