Day 142

Prompt: game or competition. Continued from Day 141.   It's a pensive two minutes before I see the creature. It's bipedal to a degree, hunched over with light green skin that seems to shift and change as it moves. I slip noiselessly deeper into the cave, my eyes never leaving the creature. The thing sniffs the …

Day 141

Prompt: games or competition. Continued from Day 139.   I keep moving, slipping through the forest. Something is coming, that much is certain. What is coming... that's a whole other question. I find water with 12 minutes still on the clock, working quickly to fill my canteen. There are a few edible plants that I …

I've been watching him for weeks, learning his pattern, finding the weak points. They'll never know I was even here.  Getting into the building was easy, weapons tucked in …

Day 62

Using today to continue Day 58 (part 10). Prompt: I can't believe I didn't see that coming.   Johns works on a plan to secure they equipment we'll need for infiltrating an Armitech research facility while I sift through all the data my suit collected, looking for the camera I destroyed. It had to be connected …

Day 58

Today I am continuing Day 57 (part 9!).   Johns finds me on the porch an hour later, handing me a glass of something I hope is liquor. The peaty scent hits me before the glass touches my lips. There hasn't been scotch in years; Johns must not think we're going to make it out …
