I’m sharing snippets from a wip called The First Nation. Last time I checked in with the Weekend Warriors, Raveena (our mc) gave us a look at the second part of her job–reporting. Basically, turning in what you’ve harvested for the day. You must meet quota, though. Or a note goes into your file. Raveena has convinced a man in front of her to rethink raising his voice to the Reporter. Now, she’s reported her quota and the Reporter is sending her on her way. The Reporter speaks first, starting a common phrase of parting in the Nation.
She tapped a couple of keys and nodded at me. “Nation first.”
“Nation last.” I walked away before she could even get the aborul onto the conveyer belt stuttering behind her. It wasn’t like me to stick my neck out for anyone else. It wasn’t like anyone in the Nation to do it. I didn’t know why I’d done it.
Guess I didn’t want him to ruin my day.
That’s my 8! Now, get on over to the Weekend Writing Warriors and check out some other great 8s. :)
