Moonbeam



Moonbeam raised himself up to the flat roof above the grand ballroom of the Elixir Spa Resort Hotel and Leisure Complex, and lay back on a white plastic sun lounger that he’d brought up on a previous visit.

He looked up into the clear night sky, looking out at the eternal vastness of open, empty and star-filled space, and smiled.

The roof was surrounded by the walls to the other parts of the complex on three sides, with the fourth side, the side he used for access, hidden by trees and bushes from the Spa Garden just behind.

The roof gave him a good view of the sky, and the surrounding walls blocked out the lights from the complex, so, apart from the moonlight, it was a very dark place indeed.

The Moon was full and bright above, and he closed his eyes to bathe in the moonlight so he could top up his mystical darkness, which didn’t need topping up, but Moonbeam always wanted more power.

A noise caused him to open his eyes suddenly – he realised he was not alone on the roof this night.

    I wonder what’s up there with him? Maybe we will have a sequel.

      We will, Frank… although whether we’ll find our answers is a totally different issue! 😉

    Where’s a supervillain got to go and who does he have to bribe to get some rest around here? Nice episode, leaves us ready for more.

      Thanks, Mimi. These supervillains all have their special little places, as we’re finding out. But hmmm… you’ve mentioned bribery…

    Setting a scene… nicely done. Even better* managing to add to our understanding of the character, along with a touch of foreshadowing**
    And! A cliffhanger.
    cool.

    *for my read-to-learn-and-improve-technique self
    ** got an email article on foreshadowing this week, not as easy as it seems… gonna stick with being an unreliable narrator (lol)

      It’s fun, Clark, trying to get as much as possible into six sentences, with the story itself and all the peripherals! 🙂

    Getting your energy from the moon, as opposed to the sun is a great concept.
