Inside – Part 1 of 6 – Room 101

These things tend to be short pieces that may or may not be the beginning of something else. They are, this month at least, just 101 words only. They dont always finish, I just like to try and evoke a certain feeling or scene. I also decided to combine this with M’s prompts. Today it was ‘Nano Nano’. I am going to try tell a short tale in 6 one hundred and one word pieces and publish them all today.

 


Cal spread his hands, the holo screen materialising and blinking into life.  Retinal scans signed him into the programme core whilst the nanites coursing through his veins allowed him to interact directly with the screen interface.

Smiling, he cracked his knuckles and then pulled up a list of all suitable candidates within a two block radius of the target.  He paged through the list, the screen a blur of faces and vitals until he found what he was looking for.

“Henderson Gill.  Zoom” he said and focused in on a map showing Gill’s location.  “You look like you need a drink.”
