Left: A Silent Crashing

Eileen Moore — a.k.a. “The Wave”.

She glided in under cover of darkness, set to powerwash the compound — not to flush them out, but dissolve them.

Presence detection at full power; eighty-three targets acquired.

She was a machine — quiet, efficient. Within half an hour nobody was left; eighty-three people were vapor, including their outspoken “Captain” Tommy Marshall —

washed away, as it were.

This was her job: safeguarding. . .


From what?

Agent Moore proceeded,

without an answer.

This flash fiction in 75 words was crafted for the M3 blog’s Flash in the Pan
