Falcon Boy: A Fairly Hopeless Hero Volume 1: 9

‘Ladies and Gentlemen, the Infamous Moon Rope’ Part 4

Mayor Denver Footswerve cleared his throat before he spoke. He thought this made him sound more mayoral.

‘I think I speak for all of us here when I say how pleased we are to have your best minds working on our behalf, Captain Lorimer.’ The Mayor paused and I am beginning to wonder whether pausing is as contagious a social habit as yawning.

‘Ladies and gentlemen, I am aware that we are all aware of just precarious the situation sounds but I can’t help wondering, from a Public Relations perspective, whether it will in any way be possible to temper bad news of this magnitude with some good news, no matter how small that good news might be?’

The Mayor looked at Captain Lorimer and she could see panic in his eyes. Being mayor was the only thing he had ever wanted and now it looked like someone was going to go and spoil it before he had the chance to enjoy it.

There was no good news.

‘There was no good news,’ Mayor Footswerve said later to his wife, Peculia, as he ate his tea. ‘People are going to start blaming me if the world ends while I am in office.’ Mayor Footswerve pushed the peas around his plate.

‘They already blame me for everything already and I have only just been elected. I can’t imagine how Panic Town will react if something cataclysmic and world-ending happens while I am Mayor.’

Peculia could find no words to comfort her troubled husband.

Inspired by his passion for films and video games, Barnaby Taylor loves writing dystopian science fiction and horror. He has recently written the VIRO series about a gang of teenagers struggling to survive in a world overrun by the infected. There are currently three books in the series and Book Four is on the way. VIRO is rapidly infecting the Amazon charts and gaining rave reviews along the way. Here's one of the latest reviews: 'I found myself sucked right into the characters and never-ending action and gore page after page. I very rarely buy books, but immediately purchased number two which I found equally as engrossing. Yesterday I bought book three in the VIRO series and instead of a good night's sleep I've got red eyes and a need for Red Bull! Fantastic series for all my zombie lovers out there!' Book One is currently FREE to download at the following links: http://bit.ly/VIRO1UKKindle http://bit.ly/VIROBOOK1 Barnaby posts weekly updates on his writing on his blog and you can follow these updates at www.falconboy.ie.
