Weekend Writing Warriors #34 – Revenant (Part 73)

The circle of life paid us a visit this weekend. I awoke yesterday and found our two chickens had been reduced to a pile of feathers and some scraps of meat. A fox must have got into the hen house and killed them. Needless to say there were many tears as my daughters learned the news, followed by a couple of holes dug in the backyard to farewell them. It is sad to have such things happen but nature is as nature does and we must all learn to accept such things from time to time. Malice is a human construct, something that thankfully does not exist in the animal world.

Now, on a lighter note, I have the next 8 sentences of Revenant to share with you. As always, if you want to refresh your memory about what’s happened you can simply follow this link.

    Kassandra leaned down and entered a series of numbers into a keypad located on the container’s side. For a moment that seemed to stretch for hours nothing happened, then a small light above the keypad changed from red to green.
    Kassandra moved her hand around to the front and opened the door, letting out a long breath as she did so. “We’re past the first stage.”
    Ryan peered over her shoulder. It looked like the interior of a refrigerator, only instead of food items the shelves were filled with sealed bags, tagged with barcodes and labelled with what to him were a meaningless list of numbers. They must have meant something to Kassandra, who ran her finger along the codes, moving back and forth as she read them.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my contribution to this week’s list, and thanks for stopping by. Click on the image below to see all the wonderful writers who are taking part in this weekly event. weekend-warriors

  1. On the one hand, very sorry to hear about your chickens. On the other, this was a terrific eight — can’t wait to see what’s going on with these bags!

  2. I’m going to have to read the rest to get the full meaning but very nice 8. I get a sense of urgency yet there’s a need to get it right as well. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Yeah, interesting stuff going on in that 8, thanks for sharing. It’s always a little exciting and mysterious to see the specialist putting knowledge you don’t have to use, especially when the stakes are high!

    Sorry about your chickens, but that description made me think of the old folk song, “The Fox.”
