My THEME for the A to Z challenge 2017 is an ongoing speculative fiction story featuring telepathy.

Each letter post is titled and inspired by a commonly misused word or phrase.

The story started with All Intents and Purposes.

You’ve Got Another Think Coming

How old are you?

He laughs again. This guy must be hard up for entertainment. “Hard to guess, isn’t it?”

I chug my drink, half the bottle down my throat before I speak. “You look about the same age as my dad. But you don’t.” I look at my drink. That red liquid. “Are you a vampire? Is that why we’re in a cave? Oh sweet Gorgonzola, this is why you’ve been starving us! I ate garlic the day you kidnapped me.”

Help! I’ve been taken by a vampire, and he’s about to feed on me!

“Really?” He pulls two folding chairs out, sliding one across the cave floor to me. “First, I’m the only one who can hear you right now. Ora might be able to as well, I don’t know. She’s an unstable mess.”

He unfolds his chair and eases into it. There’s still plenty of strength in those ample muscles, but his joints slow him like a grandparent. I could use that. One good kick to his knees.

“Second was going to be assuring you that I’m not a vampire. But maybe telling you that kicking my knees isn’t going to help you needs to be mentioned sooner.”

Cheddar! I can’t block him from my mind. “If I’m a higher Eve than you, why are you more powerful than me? And don’t say it’s age because I know better.”

“Smart girl.” He reaches to the cooler beside him and pulls out another bottle. Most of it vanishes in one chug. “This is why I had to take you. I needed an Eve Nine to test my theory. But you’re a pathetic lump of what you ought to be by now. If you don’t think I’m disappointed by that, you’ve got another think coming.”

He finishes off his bottle. “The HSMTF doesn’t know about you yet. I’ve been keeping an eye on Emmett Bradshaw, or rather, been keeping part of my mind on him. See, I’m an ENTJ type. A real go getter. Snuffing out problems before they exist has been my way for generations. Ora is a problem.”

    I was classified as INTJ.

    And now I am worried about Ora…

  1. Loved the line about Ora. “She’s an unstable mess.”

  2. Wow I didn’t know the phrase had “think” and not “thing” in it! And nooooo not Ora! She’s just a kid 🙁 …unless everyone looks younger than they are and she’s really 74. 😉 TWIST!

    Also… Yay it’s the final week of the challenge! *high five* 😀
