War Orphan

Captain Burk sputtered in shock. “Lieutenant! What were you thinking?” he roared. The lieutenant flinched. The ground shook beneath their feet and both men turned to see a towering toddler fall to the ground, dust curling around his bottom.

“It’s a giant!”

He’s a baby,” Lieutenant Orville snapped. “Sir.”

“Baby or not, he’s large enough to level a town and you’re just letting him…play in the dirt!

“Vroom, vroom” a voice above their heads rumbled. The toddler was pushing old derby cars around like toys.

“We have to start ending the war somewhere,” Orville paused. “Why not with him?”
