Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre

Who was she. God she was beautiful, but dead as a Dodo. What the hell was she doing in my house? Even Shakespeare and his Globe Theatre would have found it difficult to beat her dramatic pose. Then there were the lights, NASA could not have done better! Out of instinct I drew my Walther PPK.

As I moved to a less exposed position, my visitor and her lights vanished. I decided to keep what I had seen to myself for the moment. Perhaps I will talk with the boss later.

Just for a moment I  froze as I looked down on Earth



I have amended the first and last lines.  After posting this story.

    Hmmm. As Alice said, “Curiouser and curiouser.” I’m afraid I got lost as to what the story’s about, although it IS a really cool read. 🙂

      Me also. This is perhaps one story for the bin. I started of with one story but ended up with three differing stories mixed up together.
      I have a feeling Mr Bond has got mixed up with aliens.

  2. Björn Rudberg (brudberg)

    Ha.. I guess that being up there with a dead gal is another problem for Mr Bond.

    1. Michael Humphris

      I think that the aliens need him to sort out a problem for them.

    Aliens abducted James Bond?

    1. Michael Humphris

      Even perhaps universes colliding, as Shakespeare wants in on the act as well as Mr Bond !!!

  4. Morgan

    LOL Unexpected Twist on the prompt. Marvelous!

  5. aliciajamtaas

    I do believe the place is haunted.

    1. Michael Humphris

      Or perhaps differing universes are colliding. Bond, Shakespeare and Sci fi what a mixture !

  6. Iain Kelly

    Intriguing. Nice to see Mr Bond make a guest appearance, but I fear he may be out of his depth with aliens!

    1. Michael Humphris

      Bond and Sci fi, what a mixture. Mike

    Dear Michael,

    I got rather lost also. I should’ve connected Bond with M but didn’t quite get there. Mysterious.



    1. Michael Humphris

      I got lost too, I started writing about a missing person and Shakespeare !!!. Then I thought about a detective, then Mr Bond turned up !!!

    James Bond and Aliens, what a great idea–and read.

    1. Michael Humphris

      Perhaps I should call a film company . Really glad that you liked the story. Mike

  9. Snow's Fissures and Fractures

    Intriguing…we need a sequel.

    1. Michael Humphris

      Now that would be a challenge.


    A new Bond girl! Fun

    1. Michael Humphris

      Sci Fi meets Mr Bond, who has to turn detective! I am pleased you liked my rather strange story. Mike

  11. Clare Hempstead

    I got the reference to Bond 🙂 An interesting take on the prompt. 🙂

    1. Michael Humphris

      Thank you Claire,

    I like the visual image, but must confess I had a hard time deciphering the story.

    1. Michael Humphris

      Me too. I was having one of those day. I would write it different, but I have a habit of posting early drafts, as occasionally I find that return and find something to use in another story. I am sorry for the hard time, Mike

  13. Michael Wynn

    Interesting take and mix of Bond and aliens. I enjoyed the read and thought I’d followed it right until the last line.

    1. Michael Humphris

      I the author was having one of those moments, with a least three or four stories all mixed together. In the end Mr Bond was teleported on to an alien space ship, traveling between differing time zones. !

  14. samanthamacmaster

    You found something new for Mr Bond to do! Altho, he did look down on earth from Moonraker….sorry. Still, a nice piece 🙂

    1. Michael Humphris

      This time he is going to travel out into space.

      1. samanthamacmaster

        that’s good, cuz Captn Kirk has had his way with all those female aliens long enough 😉

  15. yarnspinnerr

    I also want to read a sequel. Very neat take.

    1. Michael Humphris

      I will try when the right prompt picture arrives, I will attempt a sequel. I sometimes find that I end up writing a series/set of about three stories over several weeks to get the character out of my head.

      1. yarnspinnerr

        I shall wait for it.

        1. Michael Humphris

          I hope that you don’t have to wait to long. Mike

  16. spicedmullings

    Got lost in the stars, eh Mike?

    1. Michael Humphris

      That’s very easy for me,

      1. spicedmullings

        Grin grin grin!

  17. spicedmullings

    Me too!

  18. lingeringvisions by Dawn

    There is a fun mixture of storytelling in this little piece.

    1. Michael Humphris

      Certainly a mixture.

  19. patriciaruthsusan

    Well, Mike, that will be a new one. James Bond was abducted by aliens. I hope his solution satisfies them. I wouldn’t want to anger aliens. Good writing. I love a good mystery. 🙂 — Suzanne
