Tuesday Tales WINNER 22!
By entering, every contestant agrees to shamelessly promote and praise the winner on twitter.
For all discussions about this challenge use hash tag #TuesdayTales
I am happy to have this week’s Tuesdaytales Judgemasters take over:
WINNERRuler of #MenageMonday flashfiction challenge& Now Four time winner of #tuesdaytales
Winner – Cara Michaels (2nd entry, “Budget cuts, you know.”)
“A takeover? Seriously? Who do we report to?”
“Some Indo-European conglomerate. Lots of Italian suits and incomprehensible accents.”
Fireworks started above the Needle. I focused, ignoring the flashes of color.
“Wind is 15 from the northeast.”
I adjusted my position, slowly exhaled, and pulled the trigger. Noticed only by his bodyguards, Ambassador Michel slumped to the pavement.
“Target is down,” I said.
“Time to toast the New Year, my friend. Think we’ll get to keep our jobs?”
“I’ve heard some talk of layoffs.” I drew a silenced 9mm and shot my former partner between the eyes. “Budget cuts, you know.”
HONORABLE MENTIONS!HMs – Johnathan Volkme – best use of word. The idea of a non-caring, profit driven, dehumanizing conglomerate easily captures all of the worst that we think of when we hear the word.
I’d also like to list two other HMs if that is acceptable. LupusAnthropos for “A Commercial”. Great take on prompts! and Lisa McCourt Hollar – DS9 tribute.
Everyone spread the word of the Caramichaels and Redshirt6 for his awesome judgemastery!
I would also like to invite our winner Caramichaels to be a judge for next Tuesdaytales on January 10th , please let me know if your available 🙂
