Flash Fiction Month 2016, Day 27
Challenge #12: Write a speculative fiction story exactly 55 words in length. It must not contain dialogue.
Unit 659-43-A faced two dilemmas.
One: there was insufficient Paint #96A400 for the wall, necessitating either a patch job or mural.
Two: the only reference models to survive Armageddon were one granite bust of Emperor Chang and one surprisingly fire-resistant Frilly Kitty doll.
Unit 659-43-A decided to compromise.
The city’s 0 inhabitants raised no objection.
