Prompt: An objective crawls past a hero
Source: Random Phrase Generator
An objective crawls past a hero, thinking, just for a moment, that it has escaped the hero's observation. Crack! The electrical arc connects the objective's spiky metal carapace momentarily to the hero's electrode. For a split second, rivers of electrons pour through the air, into the objective, washing its armor in sparks of light, denaturing proteins, boiling blood, burning hair and skin. The smoking shell now lays still beside a dozen others that have attempted the bridge. The hero breathes a sigh of relief and starts pedaling the generator to recharge the system.
