An unexpected event on Earth
A mysterious alien contacts Earth, claiming they have technology earth must have.
Once a year the Praetor of Earth must defend his throne in hand to hand combat.
Extremely short. Takes about 10 seconds to read.
Again, an old story from long ago that sprang out of my head for no reason!
If at all possible, this one is more angst ridden than the first frost.
An old story from high school. Be warned. It’s drowning in angst.
