C O U R A G E O U S Part Two

C O U R A G E O U S By: Mike Mezz Part Two (a poetic narrative story)

PART TWO We will defend our homes

There are a few other communities Located somewhere in this mountain range We do trade some commodities But they don't have much to exchange

We have everything here that we need Plenty of guns and defensive weapons We grow our own food but limited on meat So that's the only thing we have accepted

"Captain, boats approaching from the east" Bethany yelled looking out over the valley "Five or six rows deep" We ready the guns and the artillery

We patiently watch the strangers It looks like seven boats approaching We're cautiously aware of the dangers Weapons are prepared to start exploding

I especially don't like wasting ammunition But a few warning shots draw their attention The boats abruptly stop as our gunfire escalates the tension Nothing in the watery valley can escape our vision

" State your business or turn back" My deep voice echoed throughout the cliffs "We are armed and ready to attack" They don't know it but our firepower won't miss

Their boats sway from side to side Built from some long lost old metal and wood I've never been much of a patient guy I repeated my warning in case they misunderstood

Bullets scream past my head They just made the wrong decision Our numbers and firepower will tear them to shreds Our guns are loaded with ammunition

"FIRE AT WILL" I screamed from on top of the hilll

A few desperately fired gunshots Flew up towards our location "KEEP FIRING AND KEEP IT HOT" I warned them of an altercation

"CEASE FIRE, THAT'S ALL OF THEM" I commanded while shaking my head "Can you see anyone taking a swim?" I laughed and said I was satisfied that those bandits were done in

"Ready the boats and let's see if there's anything to salvage" We are in need of metal to continue construction On enough rocket ships for safe passage To leave the Earth in case of further destruction

To Be Continued........

On the next episode of COURAGEOUS...... A set back could stop the people of Courageous from accomplishing a major goal and strand them on the mountain forever...... Copyright © 2020 Mike Mezz (All rights reserved)
