Tommy had a pre-battle ritual. He would go to the roof of the armory that overlooked his hometown, thinking about how it used to be, and about the battle ahead.
His artillery group had not fared well in yesterday’s battle. He had been on the verge of throwing down his weapon, but ultimately Tommy could never do that to his men.
He sent the communique to his comrades. It was time.
Just as the mission started, they heard it; “Tommy, I need you to go to the corner store.”
“But ma, I’m online…”
Giggles from the earpiece.

Thanks for reading! If you are so inclined, go pick up my book (available on Kindle or paperback) at Amazon. It’s called “Jamey Jones and the Sons of Noah.” It’s a fun science fiction book about a group of teenagers living on a planet called Kepler 438b. It’s seventy pages long, inexpensive, and it’s kinda good, even if I say so myself.
