“There’s always Ezzie,” she said quietly, almost wishing no one would hear her.


“He’s still…untested,” Robertson hedged. 

Sarai raised an eyebrow. “Have you forgotten how we found him? Surrounded by fifty dismantled robos?” 

Everyone in the room shifted uncomfortably. Doubts crept into Sarai’s mind. They were right; he was too young, and he’d shown a lack of discipline in following orders.

He was just a boy.

In continuing my most recent endeavour of expanding and updating stories I wrote for Writeober back in 2020, I came across my story “The Easy Part”. I was intrigued by the characters and concepts I introduced. I wanted to know more, so I picked up my pen and started writing. Here, you have the result.

While writing about war itself isn’t my favourite, I love exploring behind the scenes moments like this. Imagining what strategy would look like in a space war is so much fun! I really hope you enjoy it; thanks for supporting me by reading my stories on Vocal.

Happy reading!

When you write as much as I do, you have to take frequent breaks from sitting. A standing desk (not a whole desk, but a mini desk that will sit on top of my current desk with my laptop, keyboard, and mouse and extend upward) will allow me to continue working while maintaining that good blood flow to my brain. Thank you so much for your support that allows me to keep producing free content. God bless you! ♥️ E.J.
