Happy Presidents Day, everyone! (No? Too soon?)
This piece is a first for me, in that it combines elements from two previous 512 stories: futurismic police detectives Jake and Andy, who first appeared in "The Forty," and the alien race known as the Varna'ut, from "Universal Language." (It's not fanfic if you wrote the source material yourself, right?) And yes, there's definitely more story here. I'm working on it.
Read "Assassination" at 512 Words or Fewer
