FFF 55 - "The Layover"



The ship was in a holding pattern above the moon.
Lt. Jacobs instructed the crew to buckle up and get ready
for landing.

He knew it would be a few hours before the next long flight to Mars.

He was happy to be going home. This last trip was wearing him down,
dealing with these prisoners.



If you have your own 55 fly over to see the G-Man at Mr. Know-It-All and let him know you are visiting!

This was such a great 55, Lulda. It might be fiction, but it has the ring of truth or should I say prophecy? :)

I guess to be stuck in a spaceship with prisoners it is not the best place in the world to be. Or the universe.;))
