February Drabble Challenge: Undone

Horror PromptsGillian Church has created 28 single-word prompts and challenged writers to write a horror drabble for each. A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words, no more, no less (not counting the title).

Can you do it?

The Prompt:
Undone

The Submission:
Years of planning … all undone by a single fighter!

One small gap in our defences, one lucky shot, and everything has fallen apart.

Well … so be it! If I’m to go down, I’ll take their whole damned world with me!

It won’t take much; it’s a simple case of overloading the gravity drive, inputting a collision course with that blue hellhole, and letting physics take care of the rest.

Klaxons blared around me as the ship lumbered to fulfil my final command.

A flickering, flaming aura engulfed the ship as we breeched the atmosphere.

“Long live the Empire!”
