The 7th of December [Making the Grade theme]

Post by jeetkuneluke » Mon Feb 17, 2014 5:10 pm

It was a gray December 7th, Pearl Harbor a hundred years gone. Captain Anthony Germaine saw nothing but his own memories through the periscope.

“We’re in range, sir,” said the young Lieutenant.

“Good.” Germaine didn’t look up.

The kid had joined the Navy during this “peacetime”. Thought it was a breeze sailing allied waters. Germaine knew better. He’d read his history.

Lights broke the mist at last, and he saw its splendor. Tokyo. Pearl of the Orient and hub of 21st-century commerce.

Germaine grinned. “Load rockets,” he said. It was time to make those bastards pay.
