Equanimity Siege

“5 nautical miles.” the flurried voice blurred across our ears, “Subject closing in. Alpha, stand-by.” The operation was schemed three months beforehand, we knew the carriage was to be captured and to be seized by the Malaysia’s authorities, we were given orders to obliterate it into smithereens.

Surrounded

CHOO! CHOO! I got into the freight train that was leaving for London just in the nick of time, the assassins could not get to me as I outran, outsmarted them. Dusting away the remnants of soot that stained my clothes, I paced my way into one of the passengers seat. There was someone who was […]

Bank Heist

BANG! The glass shattered all around the vicinity, “ALL HANDS IN THE AIR!” Involuntarily, everyone followed suit. This sentence was the least and most not expected to be heard. My heart went a million miles per hour, in fear. There were five men, armed to the teeth in black hoodies, slinging long black AKs around them. They […]

Sailing

The clouds were in a sporadic notion, moving slowly but not erratically. It was a good day to fish, I was sitting with my net untouched for half an hour, gracing upon the blue, blue oceans reflecting panels of light from the diminished spectrum of light from the skies. Calm, a little too calm, something is […]
