Set The World On Fire

I wrote this to a Thimbleful Thursday prompt


“You’re the only descendent of the shield’s creator we could find,” Toliburn375 told the barbarian girl beside him. “You need to activate the shield system so Home World will survive the solar flare.”

“At the expense of the Cluster Worlds,” she said flatly.

“Well, yes.” He went on, “We’ll remake them afterwards – we’ll need somewhere for our experimental results to go, just as we do now.”

“How many people live on Home World?” She waited for his answer.

“The three hundred thousand best of our species.”

“There are billions on the Cluster Worlds. Charboneau has agreed to take you and the problems that will cause. You have time to evacuate.”
