Mine - A 100 Word Story

Minecraft Character IRL

I heard the dripping pop of lava just before the axe struck through the rock. I shouted, but it was too late; the red-hot rock flowed over me, and flames filled my screen.

I sighed as the front door opened. Dad was home.

"Spending time on that game again," he said, still soot-covered from his day at work, a toolbag slung over his shoulder. "You need to prepare for the real world, son. Homework. Now."

I turned off my computer and reached for my bookbag as he turned to leave.

The green limb of a creeper hung from his bag.

Based around Laurence Simon's weekly challenge for the 100 word-stories podcast. The player above should have the audio for this week; if it doesn't, you can find the audio here to download.

I am updating these in a podcast feed (dubbed "Radio Free Steven the Nuclear Man" by Laurence). You can subscribe with this link (http://feeds.feedburner.com/Ideatrash) in your podcatcher or phone. You can also read and hear the rest of the entries at the 100 Word Stories podcast site.
