It's Just A Job

People tell me my job is important, that I am a hero because what I do is dangerous, and that when I'm done it'll be a giant leap for a mankind. Me and my buddy Ted, we don't see it that way. Sweeping the Moon, to uncover what's underneath its dust, is just a job—it has to be done. Sure, there's a r...

No More Lies

"Another one." Jack motioned for the barman to fill up the empty glass. "Man, that's tough." Toby nodded deep in thought. "Yeah..." Jack twirled the glass, watching golden whiskey swirl. "They've shut down my experimental drug. Years of research and testing gone just like that." Jack snapped his fin...

On The Run

"Pack your stuff." Megan was throwing clothes into her suitcase. "We need to leave now." "Where are we going?" "I don't know yet, but there's no time. We have to disappear before Ling figures out we know about him." "I still can't believe..." Lucy was close to tears. Megan rushed over and caught her...

Tricked

The old warehouse felt eerily quiet. Side by side, with their guns at ready, Megan and Lucy tip-toed carefully among bits of rubbish. "There's nobody here." Lucy whispered. Megan scanned the area for the slightest movement or sound. "They're gone." She frowned. "Somebody must've alerted them." "But ...

It's My Birthday

"Hello, little girl." Genie leaned over the counter. "What is your name?" "Elisa." "What a beautiful name! And you look so lovely." "It's my birthday today." "How splendid!" "I like birthday, but it goes too quick." Elisa's face fell. "I wish, I could have a birthday everyday." Genie snapped his fin...

Freedom From Information

Texas central hub received an expiration log from chip-JM3105/76 registered in the name of James Marston. Since the deceased had never filed an e-will, central hub proceeded to execute a default closure of all the online applications that JM3105/76 had ever signed up with. It shut down Marston's ema...

A Genie Comes To Town

A genie arrived to town and on the main street, opened up a shop "Wishful Thinking". One day an old scrawny man stepped in. He saw the genie sitting behind the counter. The old man looked around the place crowded with a multitude of strange artifacts. Carefully making his way among them he neared th...

Everyone Has A Price

"Please don't shoot!" Jeremy was frantically crawling away from the barrel of a gun aimed at his face. "This is some kind of misunderstanding." Megan didn't listen. "I'm a very influential person, I can get you anything you may want—just name it." He put on charming smile—it always worked. "What is ...

Re: Shoot Them All

btw is there anything wrong/inappropriate/against the rules to write drabbles with same thematic/character set up? ) Absolutely not, it's a great idea. See Scattercat's 'Wisest Stone' series a great example. One advantage of posting drabbles on the forums is you don't have to keep a straight face. ...

Lucy keyed in the Oracle address. On the prompt she let the touch-pad scan her palm. The message on the screen announced: "Today you will be lucky." Lucy smiled. *** "Ladies, here is your today's mission brief." Ling handed thin files to Lucy and Megan. "Remember it's a scouting, undercover gig. No ...

Lucy fired in quick succession at approaching homophobe family. Father got a hole in the head, mother in the chest, teenage sons were slashed across their torsos, little daughter got hit in the throat. Lucy switched off the gun, took off her headphones and protective goggles. Punctured manikins zipp...
