Flash Fiction Challenge: Intercept

Photo by K.S. Brooks

From our cutter, we could see the lights of the thing on the horizon. Radar was still telling us there was nothing there, but our own eyes said different.

We had heard the stories about this strange craft from the survivors we had picked up. Most of us hadn’t believed them.

I looked at the captain to see if he was going to order an intercept course. He just stood there transfixed.

In a moment, it didn’t matter anymore. The other craft had set an intercept course with us.

In 250 words or less, tell us a story incorporating the elements in the picture. The 250 word limit will be strictly enforced.
