Nobody Dies

Kai was crouched behind a burnt-out pickup truck along the New Atlantic Superway waiting, she subconsciously flicked through overlays on her hud checking the overlay map, her inventory screen, crew list, then to the drone overhead in stealth mode. She could see four trucks coming up the road, she flicked it over to heat vision, ten moogs. I see them, they’ll be here in two minutes, She tapped into her comms unit. “Good, is everything…

Pointless

He stood in the king’s hall as the other summoned heroes glared at him, hate burning in their eyes after the accusations of the Princess. The king yelped and barked impotent rage. Kane’s head was pounding with unbridled rage, already have concluded that this was all a waste of his time and energy and that there was no point in talking in this kangaroo court.

A hero?

“Hey Rath, what you doing?” A red haired girl in simple dress bounded over the fence. Rath was swinging a wooden sword around as if he was fighting a gaggle of ghosts. “I’m practicing.” He huffed. “For what?” She started rummaging through the sack she had been carrying. “For when I become a knight!” He proclaimed, as he’d done a thousand times before. “Only nobles get to be knights Rath, ah there it is.” She…

A real mess

He looked around the apartment taking in the insanity of it all dried blood covered almost every surface, the walls, even the ceiling, the bodies of the family were hanged from hooks in the wall. Naked and gutted from the looks of, a man, a woman and two children. The forensics tech was knelling down collecting samples.

No Problem

“Shit!” Hooper slammed his headset down on the console. “What is it?” Tanaka asked as she looked up. “Storms coming in fast, we’re gonna be on lockdown here for the next twenty hours.” “Shit. I had a date with Charlie.” Tanaka sat down. Hooper snorted. The doors to the command room slid open with a mechanical grinding.
