SF Drabble #342 “Prisoner Of War”

I was captured by the Woolies on the seventh day after landing. We were with the second wave, and I gather the first wave had been fighting for two days already, so I suppose it was the ninth day of the Second Battle of Brikket.

They were in a terrible disposition after losing the fight, and I suppose they should have left us behind when they evacuated, but they took us. Some of us, anyway. They stopped feeding us after two days in space. We didn’t get food again until the cease-fire was announced.

I’m just glad to be home.
