Another scene from "Rise of the Dragons" for Madison Wood's #FridayFictioneers

Picture
Tokunbo glared at the barbed wire on the post, hung only for effect.  Those who’d attempted to escape the camp disintegrated when the hit the invisible force field. The precious few that found a way around and made it out alive were brought back by the dragons and made example.

Involuntarily, Tokunbo glanced at Karen Chan and winced.  The scars covering her body kept her in pain on the verge of tears.  No one had tried to escape in the weeks since Karen came back.

Until today – the dragons were tough, but not invulnerable, if the force fields disintegrated humans…

Neat story. Would make an excellent longer piece in my opinion. Poor Karen.

I like the way the barbed wire is a symbol of the real fence. Barbed wire is just so ominous, isn't it?

Nicely done, Wakefield. I can hear him plotting to take his captors down. :)

I liked the names you chose for your characters. I'm hoping the force fields come down--at least long enough for Tokunbo and Karen to make their escape. Sounds like an engaging story--eager to hear more.
