She knew exactly where the clandestine meeting was being held. The wealthiest of the wealthy met each year to discuss their evil goals for Earth’s fate. She had long awaited the day when she would get her revenge and had paid dearly for the location.

Those who thrived on war, oil, and status while keeping the lower and middle classes forever struggling would finally meet their fate. Even if they had replacements, she would dedicate her life to making sure “they” knew their secrets were no longer safe. She held the detonation button watching the second hand of the clock.

  2. Wow, so dark! (And I love dark!) It makes me want to know more about the main character's background, if you had more words allowed. It would be awesome (well, creepy) to find out that she was doing all this on her own- judge, jury and executioner all in one. Loved it!

  3. Definite dilemma. Save the building or bring down the PTB. I can't decide.

    For some reason I can never get my Wordpress to go through on this site.

  4. I agree--save the building and get them elsewhere. :-)

  5. No. The building is not as important as getting rid of the evil. Well done Maggie!

    1. lol. Gail. I chose a revered building to blow up the bad guys. They are going in my flash fiction regardless of historic value ;-O

  6. Oh dear! What to do? Maybe they meet in a revered building for that reason. No one would dare to blow them up. ;)
    good job, Maggie.
    Shalom,

  7. I really feel for your protagonist. Can she just target their cars as they leave the building rather than taking it out with them?

  8. A chilling tale. The voice you gave your character felt so real (a little of yourself there?). :) You evoked all the right emotions very well.
