It was the third conspiracy theory thread that I'd stumbled upon that night, right after a rant about how the Malaysian Airlines plane disappearance was connected to self-aware robots from the future.

PROMPT: Science Fiction Competition 2018

The world is being taken over by parasitic light-based lifeforms: a thread. The words blared out from the soft blue glow of Twitter and I audibly snorted. Nevertheless, I decided to indulge the lucky person whose tweet had gone viral. I read about this person's experience seeing what she called "shining yellow orbs" around people's heads.

PROMPT: Child Narrator

    “I’m gonna beat your stupid, mean, ugly face!” I shouted as I threw the ball far to the right of the hoop.
    “Airball!” teased the person with the stupid, mean, ugly face, also known as my older brother, as he quickly got the rebound and sank a perfect shot through the hoop.
    “Oh, yeah?” I shot back as my own throw went off again, this time far to the left.
