Time: 10 minutes
Prompt: Solo terrified near window
Source: Random Phrase Generator

Ms. Solo stood terrified near the shattered window. Her face was splattered with blood. My ears were ringing from the blast, so I wasn't sure whether M. Solo was screaming at us or just moving her mouth wildly in silent maledictions on our attacker.

This was not the first time a school had been targeted by the terrorists, but it was the first time a school with boys as well as girls had been hit. Three weeks before, seven girls and three teachers had died when a roof collapsed on top of them in an all-girl school in Longview. The building had been rigged with hundreds of micro charges, stuck lik gum-wads in the crown moulding. Though they still haven't caught her, it seems that the job was done by a woman they'd hired a year or so before to clean the classrooms and help with hot lunches. They'd suspected that she might have been religious, but that, in and of itself, wouldn't have been grounds for denying her the position. It's not like religion is technically illegal or anything.
