The Grand Canyon; 227 miles long, 18 wide and over a mile deep. It took two billion years of nature’s fury to carve such a wonder. Or five seconds from a Bri’nell warship. It was a frightening preview of what Earth would soon be if they failed.
“Andromeda to all ships, Charon Station reports enemy fleet approaching; estimated strength outnumbers us seven to one.”
Though the bridge around him was silent in weighted dread, they all knew what order was coming. It was the only one they would accept. “Trinity acknowledges. All ships, we hold this line at any cost.”
Entry #1 for this week’s 100 Word Challenge from Julia’s Place. I’ve never actually been to the Gran Canyon yet, only seeing it from the sky. But whenever I do, I always think of what it took to make it, and what kind of raw power that must be.
Anyway, I hope you all enjoy.
