The radiation counter clicked alarmingly as another flash filled the sky.

"Oh jees. This is bad."

"Son. This ain't bad. This is just two grumpy nations taking potshots at one another with atomics."

"Sarge, this is the kid's first time out. You know that."

"I ain't gonna molly-coddle the newbs Parson. Bad was Accellinine's Void."

"You were at the void sir? But wasn't that..?"

"Yeah. The Firmament wars. Let me tell you kid. This is nothing compared to Quantum smashers, and reality warp weapons."

"But all the soldiers were..."

"Quantum entangled when it was over, yeah."

"Damn Sarge. Sucks..."

    Thanks Drew 😊 I probably should get around to turning some of these into books. I just don't have the stamina to do it 😐
