Alternate Enigma

Filed under: Stories — Tags: , , , , — Stephen L. Thompson @ 6:00 pm

Recently, I read through my old writing notebooks looking for lost story ideas.  While doing that, I came across the original idea I had for “Enigma.” Instead of a cube, the artifact was to be this bizarre sculpture with all kinds of branches and nobody would have a clue as to what it was.  The story then was to end several hundred million years ago, where we find the object was made by an alien art student.  It’s a giant penis.  The student is threatened with expulsion from the school if he doesn’t melt it down, but instead he takes it out to the boonies of the galaxy hoping to come back for it some day when his genius would be accepted.  I didn’t go for that ending because it was too silly and clichéd.  Besides, I like what I did come up with.
