Weekend Writing Warriors #17 – Revenant (Part 56)

Once again I have another 8 sentences from Revenant, my science fiction post apocalyptic zombie story. This time, however, I have not followed on immediately from where I left off last week. There were two more sentences in the scene and then a POV change so rather than break the rules I have the first 8 sentences of the new POV.

If you want to refresh your memory about what’s happened you can simply follow this link.


    Rappelling down the darkened elevator shaft was actually much easier than she expected, and, she had to admit, far quicker than taking the stairs.
    The stairs would have been horrible. Especially if they had been attacked. Kassandra shuddered, imagining an encounter with those four husks in the narrow confines of the stairway. No, this was a far better option.
    “Hey,” she said as they dropped from floor to floor. Numbers on the closed elevator doors made it easy to track their progress. They’d just passed sub level nine, only five more to go. “I was just wondering how we are planning to go back up.”

  1. I suppose I can’t say this about every elevator in the whole world, but since a friend of mine is in the business of elevator repair and maintainence, I can tell you that the ones he worked on at least had ladders running up one side for workers to use. Frankly, it would still be faster and maybe safer to rappel down, but yeah, they can always just climb back up.

  2. That’s a VERY good question. Great snippet, Goran. I’d take out the second “was” in the first sentence, and the “Ryan was right” in the last sentence of the second paragraph – they aren’t needed. I really like where this story is going. 🙂
