January Blog Chain ~ Thirteen

Time for the first AW Blog Chain for 2013.  And surprise, surprise, this month's prompt is 13.  After taking a look at my short post, check out the links for my fellow AWers.  They have some great stuff to share!


Thirteen.

Twelve.

This can't be happening.  Jemma's trembling fingers dialed the number again.  Please, why aren't you answering?

Eleven.

Ten.

Nine.

Six.

Five.

There wasn't time; she knew there wasn't.  On any given day, it took ten minutes to get from her office to the outside lot.  The warning came only one minute ago.

Four.

Three.

What would she tell him? If the missile hadn't been launched at the government building she worked in?

Two.

Tanner, I'm sorry.

One.

  4. Wow. Nicely done. I agree with above posters. Terror achieved and in so few words. The count down certainly added to the tension.

    I loved it and wish there was more. Very short, but so very powerful.

  8. Whoops! That's one button she'll know not to press again :)

    In all seriousness, though, that was an intense interpretation of the prompt. Good job!
