Coup

In darkness they waited.  The stage was set; tonight their oppressors would be cowed at last.

Suddenly they heard the alarm ring out across the water.

It had begun.

As one, they moved.

    I like how this is a complete story but still leaves lots of room to expand. Maybe someday we will know what happens next?

  2. Ooh, yes. Very good! ‘As one, they moved.’ Loved that line.

    This could describe many battles waged throughout history. I like the line about them moving as one. To succeed, they have to be able to do that.

  4. so different form the spirit of the 3 words ! absolutely loved it !

  5. Hell yeah.

    Sorry, I can’t be more specific. Great job, you put that tension and we get to see that last second before it begins/ends.

    Thanks for sharing!

    it could be an attack of anything or anyone really…it’s interesting, that time right before you move. The anxiety, the anticipation..you captured it so well.
