The word of the day is bombinate. It means to “hum or drone.” Example: The bees’ bombinating was telltale of the hive they made in our walls.

Flash Fiction: Do Not Disturb

Do Not Disturb

By Sean C. Wright Neeley

I thought my people loved me. I gave my last speech in the communal relief-carved temple, and they cheered. My guards flanked me, as we walked back to my royal chambers. I recall the desert sun beating down on my bald head, and the sandal on my clubbed foot, dragging through the blazing sand. I wasn’t hungry, come evening. Maybe my upset stomach was foreboding of something horrible? I refused the roasted bird, fruits, and vegetables on the banquet table, and only sipped beer from an ornate bowl. I then prepared for bed. As I sat at my dressing table, removing the kohl from my eyes, someone struck me from behind. Gone; just like that, at about nineteen years of age. Was it a treasonous guard? A family member? I know not. I loved my people. Why didn’t they love me back?

As if my murder wasn’t disrespectful enough! People rushed in where I rested.

They removed my gold death mask.

They took my lifeless body to study how the priests and physicians removed my organs, sewed it back together, and wrapped me in honey-coated linens.

They removed my personal belongings – art, furniture, jewelry, weapons, chariots. Even my walking sticks.

Disrespected in life and death. You can’t do this to me. I am the son of King Akhenaten. Grandson of Amenhotep II. I am King Tutankhamen of Egypt, and the gods will get you for this.

This short story pretty much wrote itself. I really believe that I was an Ancient Egyptian in my former life, as this story was so vivid in my mind’s eye. I devour documentaries and reading material on Ancient Egyptian life and about “the curse” of King Tut’s tomb, raided in 1922. Thus, truth has been ingrained in this tale, like The Boy King’s clubbed foot and a head wound that they think was possibly fatal. I hope you enjoyed it. Check out my other flash fiction here.

English , as you know, is a mosaic of other different languages. Let’s look at some words that originate from our brothers and sisters who brought us Volkswagen and streusel pastries. The following words are German:

  • Poltergeist
  • Wunderkind
  • Kindergarten
  • Frankfurter
  • Zeitgeist
  • Bratwurst
  • Hamburger

What are some other German words you can think of that crept into English?

Sorceress Yamiti

By Sean C. Wright-Neeley

Gnat Bridge, Texas; summer 1956

“Come on, Angeline, baby. Just a little bit more,” traveling salesman Eric King muttered, patting the dashboard of his sputtering and whining 1949 Buick. Please. Angeline. Just make it there, and daddy will take care of you.

Angeline struggled up the hill, and descended it, like it was more in control than its driver. It putted into the Zoomie gas station lot, like a quivering old lady. Eric killed the motor, and said a silent thank you to the boxy hunk of metal. He wiped his forehead with his red paisley handkerchief, put his fedora back on his head. Eric then rolled down his window, and waited.

A colored gas station attendant made his way to Angeline’s flank with a casual stroll.

“Hey there, mister. Fill ‘er up today?” He was tall, the color of maple syrup…
