Thriller / Scifi


On a summer night, in the north Atlantic ocean, a nuke is launched from a Navy ship and lands in the Bermuda Triangle, detonating upon impact. The blast radius is contained within the range of the triangle, plenty of sea life dies, small and big fish. The explosion part clouds and illuminates the dark sky. A rookie soldier on the ship's deck with the name, "Gomez", stares at the explosion, hundreds of miles away, in shock.

A superior officer with the name, "Wells", sees Gomez shaking, barely able to hold onto his binoculars. Wells stands right behind Gomez, a middle aged man trying to startle a rookie. 

Wells says as loud as can be, "First time seeing a nuke go off?!

Gomez jumps in panic, Wells laugh as the rookie turns to Wells, trying to catch his breath. 

 "Sorry, kid. I was trying to get your attention." Wells says, trying to comfort Gomez. 

Gomez calms down, he puts his binoculars down, ashamed of something, Wells can see it in his eyes. 

"You're going to answer my question, rookie?" Wells says like an order. 

"What?" the confused Gomez replies with. 

"The triangle? The nuke? You don't seem well." Wells says, concerned.

Gomez says, rather bluntly, "It was the President's orders to send a nuke into the Triangle. I'm not feeling well, knowing I voted for him."

"Boy, you don't know what was in there! No humans are dead, everything is fine. Are you feeling sad for the ocean?!" Wells says, like a strict man.

Gomez shouts, "There was a chance to make peace and the President refused to!"

"What are you talking about?" Wells says, with some fear in his throat, suspecting what Gomez knows.

"I know what's in the triangle, what brings down the planes. You know what emits the electromagnetic field, don't you, sir?" Gomez whispers, not wanting to alarm anybody else on the ship.

 In a cautions tone, Wells replies, "I do know. Due to my rank, I've learned such information. But how did you learn?"

Gomez says with despair, "My cousins are scientists. They warned me of what this ship might conflict with. But they also told me that there was an option to train, to calm what was in that triangle. It might have been a beast but it could have been a friend."

"Gomez, you know that monster brought down hundreds of planes and ships for decades." Wells says with grief in his tone.     

And before either of them can say anything, they both go quiet as they hear a roar coming from the depths of the sea. They see a massive tidal wave approaching them, the entire ship is powerless to move as an electromagnetic pulse has been emitted. Gomez tries to zoom in at the wave with his binoculars with the infrared, he sees the signature of the creature causing the powerful force of the wave.

"What did you see?! We killed the Bermuda Beast! Nothing should be left!" Wells shouts.

Still holding onto his binoculars, Gomez replies "My cousins said there would be children with the same power of electricity that could be unstoppable. "

The wave is getting close, a monstrous fin emerges at the top of the wave. Wells grab Gomez with one hand and grabs the railing with the other, hoping to survive this. The wave causes the entire ship to submerge underneath as the monster roars.

Diane April: Really liked the concept of this story. The beginning had a great explanation about how things worked in the real world that people tend to overlook. It was a nice change from the usual zombie story that just makes things up as they go along and actual facts don't matter.

Ben Gauger: Kudos go to wordworrywill, author of Kings and Things, an otherwise imaginative tale set against the trappings of the royal set, but then again I don't imagine there'd be many authors who invoked the names of Oprah Winfrey, Vladimir Putin, Jeff Bezos, Beyonce and Steven Spielberg, As for the plot...

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...
