If you don’t speak up… (Friday Fictioneers)

As the rumbles die down the damage is assessed. Bloody Interplantary squabbles. Every day another disagreement between leaders and we cope the brunt of the fall out. I can’t see a building, road or airbridge that has not been affected by spaceship bound weaponry. You didn’t want to get caught out in the open during an airstrike. Well, I mean, if you did, I guess you wouldn’t know about it. Instant evaporation.

I crumple the underground town meeting pamphlet in my hand. Something must be done. Tonight, plans would be made.

I refuse to accept this anymore.

The fight begins.

  1. I liked the spirit of this. And then I thought, if her/his side is already fighting, what’s the plan? Capitulation?

  2. And now the squabble becomes war. Very dystopian indeed. Loved it.

  3. I love a good tale of rebellion and resistance.

  4. This dystopian account reminds me of how I’m currently feeling after the UK election. Well done to the character for fighting back.

  5. Pretty tough to defeat interplanetary powers with a town hall resistance. Interesting–I’d like to know how this turns out 🙂

  6. I hope they are somewhat equipped to fight!

  7. Not the easiest of foes to take on!

  8. Dear Laurie,

    Hope they have a good plan. It doesn’t sound too promising. Well done.
