So, may I ask if this is going to be fleshed out into a book of its own or are you going to keep it as a stand alone short?
                              I thought it was interesting, but wanted more.

This is a pretty trippy story. ☺ P.S I love the picture! Is it a banner? If so can I use it? I will most definitely give you credit for it.

It's hard, easy, and fun, all rolled into 13 words. I can't wait to see your flash fic!

@NotGenghisKhan Yeah lol. In trying to come up with an alternative to plastic, plastique is what my mind settled on. Explosives won't do, so I'll wrack my brain for a different word. Thanks again for reading, and the prompt. Writing this story was a lot of fun!

@blackswirlycloakguy Thanks! I wasn't sure on what to do with the ending. Overall, the story needs some sprucing up, but glad you liked it!
