Not Today

Another piece 101 words in length for you. Enjoy!

Not Today

The firing squad took position and awaited the order.

An assistant shuffled through the crumbling doorway and unfolded a small screen.

“Shoot him,” the screen ordered.

At the end of the room stood a lone man, eyes fixed ahead. The guns unloaded every last round, but he did not wince.

As the smoke dissipated and the dust settled, confusion quickly filled the room.

“Turn me around! What’s going on here?!” the now angry screen shouted.

The lone man smiled, his hologram flickering ever so slightly. “I’m sorry, Mr President, but if you couldn’t make it today, then neither could I. Rain check?”
