Twister – A 100 Word Story

[Steve’s note – an all-too appropriate story to run, since I’m reading Gamer Fantastic right now…]

The battle raged on before me, the virtual limbs of my fleet stretching out between star systems. The VR suit carried my body’s commands to the drones slaughtering the enemy. Color-coded representations of star systems swam before my eyes. The drones had an advanced AI, capable of immediate battle tactics. But they were not smart enough for strategy. They could not see the grand picture and win the war.

I saw the opening in the enemy’s defenses. I gathered the fleet, twisted uncomfortably, and used my right hand to smash them all into the red dot of the enemy’s homeworld.
