The Tree - 100 WC week #24

The Tree


The tree swayed and trembled as the brutal winds tried to push and pull it off the Earth.  The tree struggled to stay standing as the storm wreaked havoc through the city.  The storm vanished just as quickly as it had appeared.  Everything went quiet and not a thing moved.  The tree had survived the storm, or so it thought.  Its branches were pulled apart, roots almost ripped and leaves were falling off.  The tree was decaying.  It knew its time has come to an end.  Suddenly, fingers emerged from the ground.  The hand took the tree down into the Earth.

Hacked - 100 WC #21 (late publish)

Hacked

         Dan was 92% finished hacking into his local bank.  He thought he was going to do it without getting caught.   However, hacking the bank's programming took longer than anticipated.  It took him four months to hack 15% of the bank’s protective softwareSuddenly all the lights went out.  Dan’s computer shut down leaving one message out in its darkened screen: 

         Error: Hacked client found, shutting down in 3 seconds.
         “Oh, frick!”  Dan cursed in anger.  All of a sudden, Dan’s apartment door burst open.  Armed men came in, shouting.  Dan surrendered and the armed men brought him outside his apartment.
