You can walk down many streets in any town and see redundant sports facilities. For there is only one game played now. A game of life and death for four players. If you come first you gain another full year of life, come second and you get six months, come third and you get three months. But come fourth and you are given the red seed of death. The worlds leaders say that it is the fairest way of controlling the population. But what I want to know is why the leaders and their political advisors are exempted from the games.
Footnotes: Some stories just seem determined to be run on or be told. This week’s offering stands alone, but can also be seen as a follow up to my last story for Friday Fictioneers, called ‘Freyja will deliver the torch’.
I am unfortunately still unable to use the ‘like’ button, but I do read all stories posted on FF.
