Trifextra #92 – Power Shift

In The Scorpio Races, author Maggie Stiefvater writes, “It is the first day of November and so, today, someone will die.”  Give us the next thirty-three words of this story, as you imagine it.


Sonja’s lips formed a firm line.


Rations were running low.

The Cabinet agreed to this…

She lifts the revolver at the President’s head.

Thank God for the 25th Amendment….


That was “Power Shift”

So this is not only my entry for the 92nd Trifextra… but my first post for NaBloPoMo, the Post-a-Day blogging event for November!  Yes, I have decided to post at least SOMETHING every day this month!  I promise!

    Interesting that it’s the president’s death impending. And I admit to Googling the 25th Amendment; thanks for the push into history.

  6. Yikes! Makes me curious to know what led to that “power shift.” Powerful 33 words!
