Here's my drabble for the prompt "soon":
“Soon” they keep saying, but when? How is a person supposed to function under this kind of pressure? “Soon” would have been weeks ago. I’ve been waiting months for this to all be over. As soon as power is back in the hands of the Assembly I’ll be able to return to my life. But, what if the power remains with Zarek? Maybe that’s why it’s taking forever; he’s still in control. If that’s true, then everything is lost. Rebellion isn’t far off. Stop thinking like that, Astra. Everything will be fine. It has to be. They won’t, they can’t, let Zarek stay in control.
This is supposed to be Astra thinking to herself, did it read like that?
This drabble was interesting 'cause instead of coming up with something of the top of my head, Astra (who I'd previously invented and has been hanging around recently) came up and had me write something that would work in her story. Apparently she wants to be written down.
