Post 1428. Thursday January 19 2017

Our given word at this week's Six Sentence Stories is ...



‘Turn now...turn now...turn now’ bellowed a formidable voice from a loudspeaker as he entered the tunnel.

He continued to march forward, a machete gripped in his hand.

‘Restricted area...restricted area...restricted area’.

Left right left right left right, footsteps echoing.

‘Stop or be killed...stop or be killed...stop or be killed’. Still, he strode on.

There was a hail of bullets, but he stood his ground slashing the machete this way and that, sparks flying as the missiles struck the glistening steel blade and rebounded taking their toll on his unsuspecting foe, then he turned, wiped the machete on his sleeve and sauntered from the tunnel.

  3. Yikes, that was a powerful little piece of drama, Keith, wondering what he would encounter and how he would respond! Now of course I want to know who was in the tunnel and why he wanted to do battle with them. Good stories leave you wanting more! :-)

  4. Lacking in courage, I want to say "run, RUN!" But I can't help but feel that he is on a mission he feels is important, that for some reason he must "slay the dragon" in this cave. He can then turn and walk away with his head held high and his honor in tact. Well done!
