“It’s ancient, well protected and pride of the nation”, she appended with a sinister laugh.

“Let there be Grand Finale”, he annexed.

…For He and She were terrorists deliberating their next target.

Oh my. I’m glad that I read that in the afternoon. If I had read that late at night, I would have had nightmares. In other words, what an effective story, with a shocking plot twist at the end! And complete in 150 words. Very impressive!
