100 Word Challenge – Week 50.2: Stand Your Ground

Against the weight of the water, they pushed through broken streets and homes. The rain turned the road into a river, but that wasn’t their concern. Instead, the tireless warriors swept against the current to pick up those flooded and scared. Rounding a bend, the convoy suddenly stared into a raging wall of water, causing all but the lead truck to halt.

 “We’re not gonna make it!”

“Yes we will, Bumblebee! Autobots, transform and stand your ground!” Upon command, the cranking and clattering of gears changed the vehicles into their more humanoid shape, allowing Optimus and the rest to brace its weight against the surf .


And here is part two of this week, since I couldn’t decide which one was better. And I’ve been catching up on my late 80’s/early 90’s nostalgia. Good times.

I hope you all enjoy!

    I like that first line. Everything to do with the water has this weight to it that evokes that sense of urgency.

    This took me back to watching old Transformers episodes in the afternoons, over algebra homework. I don’t think it necessarily needs to be a fandom piece, though. It works for the characters, certainly, but you could also translate it to be just a rescue piece, without the big robots, and it wouldn’t lose any of the impact.

  2. Thank you!
    I agree that it didn’t need the fandom add-in, but I just couldn’t help myself. ^^;. Still, I’ll have to revisit the scenario one day and make it a real rescue.

    I do envy those who allow their imaginations to run wild …

  4. like the ending 😀 brings back memorys! i wonder if they rescued all the people? did they make it?

  5. It took me out of the story when the autobots came into it, but I loved the first Transformers movie so I rooted for them and the folks they were trying to save.

  6. Ha ha ha …. well written and fun, wasn’t expecting Optimus Prime …. good trip down memory lane.
