The controller

Prompt  ….

PHOTO PROMPT © Nathan Sowers
The old-man had little time to enjoy his estate. However, he would go around it on all full moon nights and meditated in the especially constructed outhouse. It was out of reach for all others.
During the last full-moon night few days ago – he started on his monthly ritual and detected the mirror.
‘My stay on this planet is complete’, he thought.
He carried the mirror in to the outhouse.
Next morning the old-man was reported missing. The outhouse was completely empty except for a shattered mirror.
47 of the world’s 50 richest billionaires sighed with relief.

  1. I can’t tell from the comments above if this is the worldwide interpretation, but here in the US the primary meaning of outhouse is an exterior primitive bathroom without plumbing. Assuming this is intended, there are several comical points in the story–him bringing the mirror into an outhouse, which usually would have no room or need for such vanities, the idea that this would be the portal, or the location aliens would choose, to beam him up, and finally as Penny noticed, the double entendre of the billionaires being relieved!

  2. This is unique and fun with the outhouse and the millionaires. I can’t say I understand all of the symbolism, in my mind I kept seeing a golden toilet…

  3. I wonder it the millionaires will continue to be relieved when he doesn’t return – who else might take control now? An intriguing tale – who and what he was, as well as the why.

I love arguments
