The Warrior (short fiction by Iris).

As the soldier crept through the shadows of the abandoned factory ,the only sound was a low hum coming from his walkie talkie, that echoed of the walls making the silence seem all the more ominous. Seeing as he had no need for it, he held it warily at arm’s length and turned it off  True, soldiers in the army had only been issued with vintage edition equipment straight out of the turn of the millennium, before technology was clever enough to think for itself, but you could never be too careful.

He was late, and the smug expression the high advisor, Belaquin, was wearing as she made a point of glancing at her watch probably wasn’t helping improve the chancellor’s mood either. The rest of the council […]
