Victory On Her Terms

Victory On Her Terms
Bobby Derie

"Okay, so you've turned off the space race victory...and the diplomatic victory...the only thing left is victory by conquest." Her father said.

"Yes," Lilly pushed the glasses up her nose. "The world will burn as my armies march through the fallen cities of my enemies." Her fingers wiggled, hands itching for the keyboard. The young girl's voice dropped to a whisper. "This world will my order."

"Okay, but don't stay up too late." He leaned down to give her a quick peck on the forehead. "You've got school tomorrow."

"Knowledge is power." The lights of the opening animation played across her glasses as her father left her to the game. "Archery will be the first technology I research."
