A Second Short Story I Wrote in 6 Minutes

Three CAV’s broke atmosphere at 30,000 kilometers per hour and descended almost casually toward the faint cluster of lights stuck way out in the barren wastes of Ganymede’s anti-jovian hemisphere. From the ground, the formation was oddly pretty, long tails of superheated molecules stretched behind each small ship.

3 minutes after re-entry, all three of the unmanned vehicles slammed into the causeways and dome covered parks of the city’s center at 22 times the speed of sound. 2 minutes after impact, the tactical, thermonuclear ballistic missles released 500 kilometers from target hit, and then there were no more lights.
