Weekend Writing Warriors – Crossed Wires 5

Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!

Still sharing snippets of the new stories I wrote this summer. This was also inspired by one of my A-Z challenge ideas: Neural Rewiring. Nathan is the leader of a stunt aerobatics flying team, and the team was practicing, but Nathan misjudged a landing.

“How many of you feel that way?” Nathan asked. “Let’s make it a proper vote.”

“Okay, all in favour of looking for a replacement for Nathan as soon as possible,” Seth said, and stuck his hand in the air. Pilar put her hand up right away, and so did Liz after a moment, as if she had to check to make sure that she wouldn’t be the one who cast the majority vote.

“All against?” Karen said. All seven of them either dropped or raised a hand. “Motion fails, by three to four. And since we’re doing team votes-all in favor of opening the position of flight leader?”
