Prompt provided by Susan Rouchard
Joseph ran concrete stained hands through the stubble that passed for his hair. He looked over a rail mounted wingless plane body. His run in with the travel licensing board, had burnt out the crafts fission reactor.
It had happened, because a blue skinned human escaped capture. The authorities had impounded the machine, causing its nuclear motor to burn out. Where the hell would he get a replacement core without breaking into a concrete sarcophagi.
Joseph was glad that Storm and Lizzy had faded away escaping capture. The interplanetary authorities had too much power.
Storm, Lizzy and Benjamin are part of an earth resistance group.
