Icy Discovery

“Our greatest discoveries often come by complete accident.”

I wrote this story in answer to the following prompt:
Friday Fictioneers – Write a 100-word story based on the Photo Prompt image above by PHOTO PROMPT© Jen Pendergast

Icy Discovery

“There!” yelled Professor Mansfield.

“At last!” replied technician Malcolm staring at two circles revolving in the iced-over lake.  “The AUV’s are surfacing!”

Within minutes the circling ice vanished like manholes opening. Two yellow scuba tank-like objects bobbed in the frozen water.

Mansfield and Malcolm retrieved them. They were worth millions due to their 3D scanning sonar devices.

“Now, for the payoff,” Mansfield said rubbing his painfully cold hands.

“Yes, I feel rich already!”

With the AUVs connected to the computer, they played back the captured footage revealing a disc-shaped object.

Malcolm gasped, “That’s not a U-boat – that’s a UFO!”

The End

Thanks for reading my friends.

There’s more in the Poetry CornerPoetry Nook, and the Short Story Collection

      1. Wow on the pyramid, will have to google that one. I honestly made a mistake by calling you Reena (her story was just after yours and I was thinking it was hers) and Jade is my name on the profile and fine to use.

        Yeah the pyramid is a cool one. I’m excited to see if they’ll launch an expedition to check it out.
