Microprose: Sinking Sword

Splash! Relief flooded over him as his sword entered the river.

It’d made him invincible. The world’s most powerful man. If only he could be called man, with his hollow eyes, gaunt skin and decrepit features. As the sword sunk, his vitality rose.

He was alive, again.

Microprose: Boring School

School is boring.

I don’t know why my parents force me to attend. I don’t want to study. I want to express myself out there, ,do something interesting like a corporate job. These knives and guns are a waste.

I mean who really wants to be trained to kill?

Microprose: Lantern

This is the last one.

No lanterns left now. I watch now, as the luminescence floats in the dark sky. My small radiant orb will rise, until its final light fades. As my final hope begins fading. It depends on this last lantern.

Whether I will be rescued…

Microprose: Rise

I survey the hallowed grounds.

The many graves mark the locations of those resting in peace. I am here to disturb their peaceful slumber. I make a cut on my left thumb with a knife, and let my blood drip onto the holy grounds. I hold out my bleeding hand.

“RISE!”

The spell works, my undead army stands before me.

The world will fall…

“He was neither poor, nor needed recognition. He was mad is what he was.”

“You knew him?”

“Everyone did. That’s Mr. Icarus – mad inventor. He was testing his nuclear jetpack yesterday.”

“Must have flown too high to have fallen so deep.”

Microprose: The Assassin

It was a dark and stormy night, the deluge had pounded the demesne into submission, with rivulets of rainwater commingling with the rubicund blood of the two cadavers, riddled with holes. The shadowy assassin traipsed away, lightning illuminating the path to her next targets.
