Greetings, Weekend Writing Warriors!
I have selected another short-short story to share from my collection. It is called: Hunter. It is 200 words. I hope you enjoy it. I had to bend a few punctuation rules to fit the sentences in. My apologies.

She swooped, on dream-borrowed wings between the red and gold canyon walls. The up-thrust and cross-draft of the localised air currents brushed against her feather tips. As she allowed herself to surrender to the thrill of her flight, her talons tightened on their load.
“Goshawk, target is 30 seconds away, keep to current heading and current speed.”
Drawn back to the task at hand, she could see her target crouched on a raft, riding the churning water along the narrow canyon floor.
“I have a visual, Austringer.”
“Copy that, Goshawk, proceed with caution.”
“Copy, Austringer, I’m going in.”
