Flash Fiction: Tragedy

Paul checked his location. He had almost reached the target.

Even as a kid, Paul knew his calling lay in the skies. He had aced pilot training just before the world plunged into chaos. Paul never wanted to shoot anyone out of the skies. However, when the fight came to his country’s border he was shoehorned into the air force.

Paul checked his radar, took a deep breath and pushed the button-of-doom. His actions would be called heroic by his countrymen. However, Paul knew what it really was.

A tragedy.
