28 Plays Later – Challenge #15
Let’s write a saga…
Massive, huge stories that span over years and years.
The bigger – the better.
Oh, and whoever has the most characters (all speaking and all well-rounded)
wins a Brucie Bonus! (although nobody is going to check or verify… or indeed hand it out)
Notes: This challenge hit me on a day when the weather was making my head mushy, and I was having a high pain day thanks to my autoimmune issues, so while the brief asks for a saga, I only wrote a sketch. Per the rules: you don’t have to follow the brief.
RED SAND, HOT COFFEE
Here we are, ma’am.
I’m not old enough to be a ma’am. Call me Karen. (a beat) It’s awfully dark in here.
Let me just activate the system for you, ma’am.
LIEUTENANT flips a switch on the wall.
Power system, activated
It takes minute to juice up.
The lights slowly rise to ‘normal’ indoor lighting, slightly cool, like fluorescents.
Air filtration system, activated.
Can we take off the masks now?
Not just yet. The system will tell you.
Oxygen mix, optimum. You may now remove any breathing devices.
(stating the obvious)
It’s safe to remove your mask now ma’am.
