A Poor Design Choice

Dexter watched the breaking news with eager anticipation. The reporter stood before a backdrop of burning buildings and rampant destruction. The man looked nervous–kept glancing over his shoulder.

“The robots have demolished nearly half of Hancock already. All attempts to destroy them have failed,” the frightened man inside the television said. He held a hand up to his ear piece. “Wait! I’m being told they’ve stopped suddenly! No word yet on what may have ended their reign of terror.”

Dexter grabbed his car keys and a jar of batteries. “I knew I should have used bigger batteries,” he grumbled.

Six on the Sixth Prompt – Oct 2015

6on6It’s that time of the month again! No not that time!

It’s time for some six word stories! Currently there isn’t a huge following, but hopefully as time passes more and more writers around the world will be contributing to this little exercise in creativity.

This post will act as the prompt for tomorrow’s event. I say tomorrow because that’s when I’ll be posting my stories, but feel free to be flexible with the day on which you post yours.

The idea is to write anywhere from one to ten six word stories. I usually go with six of them, just to keep the six theme rolling.

I’ve decided to do away with the inlinkz linkup until we gain some more followers. We’re going to do it old school instead. Just post a link to your stories in the comments of mine (and any others that you read).

To be clear, as the stories are so short, it is NOT MANDATORY that you use the prompt words. That being said, the following random words are this month’s prompts: (Be inspired by as many or as few as you see fit.)

Bridge

Airplane

After their battles in Gaia and surviving the Island of Pallice, the champions of Windemere are off on their next adventure.

In his quest to be a hero and help others, Luke Callindor has jumped into danger countless times and would do so again without hesitation. So when he is infected by the toxic Dark Wind, it is up to his friends to find a cure and keep his courage alive. With time running out and their enemies in the shadows, one ally will make the decision to share in Luke’s suffering and forge a bond that runs thicker than blood. Such a sacrifice might not be enough when the truth behind this living curse comes to light.

Will Luke find the strength to defeat the Dark Wind? What ghosts from his past will appear during his weakest hour?
