I got out of my time machine and approached the building cautiously.

Peeking in through the window, I saw that the bosses were all there, discussing the plot.
Tonight, they would be taking the decision that would result in the torture of billions of people across the world over the next 150 years.
But not if I had my way first.
My time machine had helped me get here, and my time bombs would help me stop them. I might die in the process, but I would ensure that the Terminator franchise does not get any more sequels after Judgement Day.
Written as a part of the Friday Fictioneers challenge, hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (more details HERE). The objective is to write a short story of 100 words or less based on the photo prompt given above. To read many more interesting and exciting stories based on this week’s prompt, visit HERE.
This is also my entry for the #AtoZChallenge and #BlogchatterA2Z. Today’s letter was Q, which, in my story, stands for Queering the Pitch.
Judgement Day indeed
Haha – we’d all support this quest! I hear there is another one in the making, surely they should just give up!
Absolutely. Thanks Iain. Extremely tied up with a project since yesterday, so will binge-read your stories on Sunday 🙂
No rush, they’re not going anywhere 🙂
Haha!! I am back. Good one
Finally! Thank God! Great story.
Ha ha ha, thanks.
A worthy cause indeed. Where can we donate?
Buahahaha! Good one!
Thank you so much Dale
The world saved …. for now at least. Nice read.
Thank you so much Yarnspinnerr
Ha! Not a fan of the later films, then…
Ha ha ha, is anyone?
Love this one! Now can you hop back in that time machine and get rid of any and more Marvel Studios sequels? After Black Panther, they should really really really really really stop milking their franchise for every last penny.
Ha ha ha, true that. I especially hate their TV series.
Lolol! 😛 Next stop: Dhoom and Golmaal franchises 😀
Ha ha ha, especially Golmaal man, what a letdown each and every sequel has been. Dhoom anyways was never great, but at least the first part showed some intent towards making a proper heist movie.
Ha ha – loved your take on the photo prompt. (I want a time machine.)

Thank you so much Susan. What would be the first thing you would do with it (now that I’ve taken care of the Terminator thingy, that is)?
Where there’s a terminator, there’s always a hero. I hope.
He is the hero, come to save the Terminator franchise from itself 🙂
I like the way you use the building in the prompt as well as the vaguely alien appearance of the artefact in the foreground.
Thank you so much Penny
Good thing he made it on time!
Ha ha ha. Lots of support here for his mission 🙂
Excellent. So interesting. I hope they can save the day.
Ha ha ha. Thank you so much Lisa Rey
Haha. No more terminator franchises. He saved the world indeed.
Yep, enough is enough. Bomb that timeline!
Ha ha ha. Thank you so much Alice.
Ha ha ha! Unexpected ending for sure. I can think of other franchises with cars that may be past their prime too. (And I say this as a fan).
Ha ha ha. Absolutely.
that wouldn’t be good news for mr. arnold and the franchise. he’s getting old anyway. 🙂
They’re considering a female terminator for the next installment apparently, so Arnie, despite his considerable acting skills (He He), should not be affected 🙂
Hehehe. Enough is enough, indeed. Fun take on the prompt.
Great build of tension to that fun reveal. Have we really had enough though? 🙂
You still need to ask? 🙂
The world always needs a hero. Thanks for stepping in there and saving mankind.
My pleasure Russell, just doing my duty.
Those sequels can be torture. Well done. 😀
Thank you so much Rochelle
Ha… sequels upon sequel … torture indeed.
Absolutely. Thank you so much Bjorn.
Haha! Quite right – save the torture of diminishing sequels! Nice story
Thank you so much Lynn
