“I told you to hold up! If you weren’t such a moron we wouldn’t be this situation!”

“Whatever Kent! You always blame me for everything when this time around it was clearly your fault.”

“Lacey, I was telling you to stop but you just absolutely had to defy me. I told you that they had anti-personnel defenses.”

“You didn’t know shit, you just wanted to take all the credit for yourself again. I was following completely standard procedure.”

“There is no such thing and you know it.”

“Well, I didn’t do anything wrong. You ran into the defenses just as much as I did. We’re in it together.”

“You don’t have to make excuses anymore you know. It doesn’t even fucking matter any-”

“Watch your language at the back of the queue! You two are in enough trouble as it is!”

“Sorry Pete, Kent is just angry at himself for messing up.”

“Well at least it was painless. For the most part at least”

“Do these robes make my ass look big?”

“No babe you look like an angel”.

    Cute. It took me a minute to get the end but when I did, I chuckled- very clever. You also beat me to the challenge! Your solution to the limitations of the challenge was interesting. On a side note, I originally dropped the f-bomb here too and I normally don’t need it for ficlets. It got cut in the end but I thought it was an interesting observation.

    Nice. I liked how you used dialogue to back-fill the story so the reader could follow along without revelaing the ending to soon. This was unexpected and well done.

    Loved the reference to Pete. LOL

    nice twist at the end, letting us all in on the joke about her being an angel. haha. and the best part, they are arguing over something that is so far gone..
