December Drabble Day 6
Title: Run
Characters/Pairings: None
Words: 100
Genre: Tragedy/humourish.
Rating:  U
Summary: You have to run. 
Author's Note: Wow! It's day six already of my december drabble fest? I'm up an hour early for work again? Jeez! I also noticed I made a boo-boo in yesterday's drabble info but I'll edit that. So I didn't really need to mention it here. Ah well. Brain is all a mess this time of the morn. This drabble is not specific to any character, you might think of it as an unfortunate soldier or "redshirt" if you prefer.  Usual thanks of course to the awesome folks...and well enjoy. 

Run. Run for your life.

Run past the stitch and pain in your chest.

Run even though you have no breath left within you.

The anomaly is getting nearer, but then so is the pack of raptors chasing you.

Run. Run or you’re dead.

Run or you will never see the others again. Run or everything you have accomplished in your life will have been for nothing.

Keep going. Don’t stop. You have to make it, you have to reach the anomaly and get home. You cannot allow yourself to die here.

Run. Run! 

Oh God, please run.











Oh bugger. 


Day 5  Day 7

What does it say about me that I was breathless through the entire top bit, then scrolled down, saw the last line, and giggled? oops.... :) I do have that unfortunate reaction to the phrase 'oh bugger'.

That was extremely tense. And after the first reaction, very sad. I like. :)

I thought the same thing when I wrote it. Glad it made you giggle too, despite the tension and tragedy of it.

Cheers! :)

Eek, the last line doesn't sound good for that poor person.
basched From: basched Date: December 7th, 2012 10:35 am (UTC) (Link)

Yeah... I'm thinking things are not good. Maybe they tripped. People tend to trip when they're running away from things. :)

Thanks for reading.

Oh no! Poor running person with no name (and probably no vital organs or flesh now either!)
Very tense read!
basched From: basched Date: December 7th, 2012 10:37 am (UTC) (Link)

Yeah, I think they're dead. Whether the anomaly closed or the raptors caught them? Who knows? :)

Thank you Clea for reading.:)

Poor redshirt indeed.
