Friday Night Drabble Party!
Friday is here and that means y’all get some free micro-fiction!
But is it truly free? Is it?
Technically, yes, but you do have to wade through my advertisements before getting to that wholesome nugget of Drabble goodness.
Oh, and since the world isn’t just about me, be sure and check out The Four Horsemen- Alpha Contracts by Chris Kennedy and Mark H. Wandrey
And, be sure and check out this cool anthology by Alasdair Shaw
Now, on with the 100 words!

“I have, sir, and I’m adjusting course. Fingers crossed,” Custie replied.
“Fingers crossed…” Captain Stalmore sighed. “Engage engine drives.”
