Drabble: The Target

Genre: fantasy


At the centre of the crater hovered their target, a young girl who glowed faintly. They didn’t know who she was or how she got there, only that they had orders to bring her in alive using any means necessary.

The ‘alive’ part was important, because they weren’t the only ones after the girl, and not everyone cared if she stayed alive.

They raced down the crater and shot anyone who aimed a weapon at the target. Anyone who tried to block them received the same treatment. Despite their training, they weren’t the first ones to reach the girl. That turned out to be a blessing in disguise when the glow around the girl picked up the first group and flung them out of sight.

They reported the glow as another obstacle in their mission and turned their attention to keeping everyone else away while their support team found a way to neutralise the glow. It didn’t matter that they were outnumbered. They had a mission, and they were going to complete it.
