(Author’s note: Hidiho, neighbors! Currently training my replacement in anticipation of a new position coming up. In the meantime, doing my duty with putting a Fictioneers up. This one reuses music that I’ve used before, but I think it’s appropriate. Enjoy!)
Taking This Town (Again?!?!)
by Miles H. Rost
City of culture, finance, and interest.
The 20 students snuck in overnight, flying into Tullamarine Airport, looking like smiling tourists. They walked past immigration, past the taxis, onto the nearest train platform. They smiled as they got on, and in unison, looked out the window.
As the trains eventually pulled into the Southern Cross Yards, each of the students looked towards a blonde haired girl with Chinese features.
“We have been selected for a great future. We are the future of Australia’s education.”
The train slowed to a stop.
“Time to take this town, girls!”
They rushed out the doors, onto unsuspecting businessmen and college registrars.
Interesting take on the prompt – is the invasion benign or hostile? 🙂
The future will unfold, hopefully on a good note.
Hm, I wonder if they are robots, clones, or something more sinister… Interesting story.
Interesting, what form is this “education” going to take?
Sorta of cute. Invasion indeed!
