Another 100 word story, this time in response to the 100WCGU prompt…… ‘the red box’
We Are Coming
The large red box appeared in the middle of the city late one night. People assumed it was some eccentric piece of art work or an advertising gimmick. Later in the day it was reported that similar boxes had appeared in all the major cities. At first they were a source of intrigue and amusement. Then someone noticed that they were slowly but surely growing. The authorities were called in and the areas cordoned off. Attempts were made to move the boxes, but nothing worked. As each one grew it engulfed everything within its immediate surroundings. The invasion had begun.
