Drabble: It’s Full of Drones

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusrssyoutubeby feather

It’s a drone-filled world.

Military drones. Expensive, solid, better all the time.

Commercial drones. Delivery models beat the media drones to market by a few months.

Toy drones. Cheap, crappy things with minutes-long battery life. Proliferation led to better quality, better batteries, better cameras. Easy, high tech voyeurism.

Privacy concerns fought back. Legislation, protests, and, eventually, tiny hunters. A quick electric shock knocks most over-the-counter pre-fabs out of the sky. Scratch one spy.

But my hunter didn’t come home last night.

The last frame of video catches a hazy image of something bigger, darker, menacing.

Begun, the drone wars have.
