Unleash hell (hell is me) (Friday Fictioneers)

November 10, 2022

PHOTO PROMPT © Dale Rogerson

Sitting in the growing dark I stare at the phone. Any moment now it will ring. Any moment I will be called in. Any moment.

Any moment.

I saw the news. The landings. The attack. The dead. World-wide.

I’m the only one with the skill set to deal with this.

The one who stopped it the last time.

I stare at the phone.

Any moment.

I’ve already kitted up. Alien heart disruptor —  invented by my father (now passed) — in my holster. My teams are ready. The shatter bombs in storage are already en route.

I wait.

Any moment.

This is a Friday Fictioneers prompt

  1. A deluded warrior? Or a forgotten hero? Lovely, Laurie

    • Thank you Neil, I love your interpretations, could be either. Could be the calm before the storm

  2. There’s only one reason I can think of why they haven’t had the call already… that it’s already too late…!

  3. It seems as if there is no one left to defend and fight for. Run and regroup since I smell a trap.
    A great piece of suspenseful writing.

  4. Uh oh… methinks the ones in charge are no more!

  5. Maybe time to go out without waiting for the call. I don’t think it’s coming.

  6. This is gripping!

  7. Found this so gripping 🙂

  8. Suspenseful. Well done story, Laurie.
    They haven’t called me either. 🙂

  9. Could be her boss has already been taken out. She may be on her own to save the world (again.) I like the tension building in your story.

  10. I think she would be quite disappointed if she isnt called in. A suspenseful piece

  11. Great tension, but I’m thinking maybe this time it’s not going to work for her and her team.

  12. Dear Laurie,

    Great build of tension. The repetition of “any moment” brings it full circle. Well done.
