Sapphire & Steel3

The Six Word Challenge.

The words:

Doll
High
Civilization
Space
Error
Momentum

“And civilization hangs in the balance because of a child’s doll.” Steel studied the bedroom. It had been a long time since it had heard a child’s laughter. “Space, time, everything.”

“Yes, all forward momentum will cease.” Sapphire tapped the toe of a high heels shoe, nervously.
“They are anxious to have that and will be here soon.”

Steel gingerly picked up the doll and exchanged for the duplicate he pulled from his jacket pocket.
“Then our friends must make the most of our error.” He smiled and held out his hand. Come, Sapphire. We’ve done enough damage for today.”


And what about yours?
