Let's see what you can do with: the underground.
Other than going out for coffee this morning, and a Skype chat with Kat's brother's family, I have done very little today. Oh, and a bit of reading as well. Just getting started on The Hunger Games. Enjoying it thus far.
Officer Bowen watched the crowd from his tower, the rifle in his hands at the ready. On the surface all seemed to be as it should. The citizens below kept their gazes downcast; voices were hushed in the rare moments when silence did not rule; and the displays and costumes were as drab as the state regulations required.
But Bowen still felt uneasy.
It was as though he could detect an undercurrent of rebellion. Like the crowds could rise up against Bowen and his fellow officers at any moment. But surely they would not dare.
Not unless the Underground had discovered the extent of the budget cutbacks.
Officer Bowen shifted the gun in his now sweaty grip, feeling how light it was with only one bullet inside.
