“What do you think we’ll find down there,” Adam asked, wresting the protective skin over his shoulders as he bent down next to the only window on the plane.
“Bodies,” scowled Eloise, glancing up from her computer. “If we’re lucky. Base wants subjects for studying. See how this thing started.”
“You mean how the attack started?” said Adam, finally in the suit now. The thin, navy material left nothing to the imagination. Eloise swallowed and turned back to her screen.
“We’re not sure if it was an attack yet.”
“How else-“
“Honestly Adam! I’m not sure I want to know.”

    1. Thank you very much. I must be doing something right with my dialogue because I think you’re the third person this week to comment on that particular aspect of my writing.
      I really enjoyed you’re piece on over-seas adoption by the way.

  1. Great expression, Carol.
    Though we know the reality, we still feign ignorance about the attack…
    The recent tragedy has been so sad that flight pics evoke such feelings & stories these days…

    Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    1. Not any time soon I’m afraid. Darkened Daughter is demanding my time so I’m trying not to stray too far from that.
      Thank you for the lovely comment though. I’m glad you found the piece intriguing.

    1. Honestly I didn’t think about the relevance until someone else point it out, and how we get to the truth of these matters is as elusive for me as anyone else unfortunately. Even then it does little to soften the tragedy

  2. I love-though perhaps that’s the wrong word for a story like this-the way you combine matter of fact dialogue with such dreadful subject material. A really effective piece.
