Six Sentence Sunday: Full Metal Librarian XXXVI (Access Denied)

Six Sentence Sunday is open to all writers. Just pick a six sentence passage from anything you’ve written—published, unpublished, whatever—and post it on your blog on Sunday.

Registration for the upcoming Sunday list opens the previous Tuesday evening at 5pm CST. More information is here.

Check out all the talent!


Clyota is safe at Cristina’s, but she still has that pesky, unconscious thief on her lawn.  She decides to make an anonymous call, as one does under circumstances like these . . . But there’s a problem . . . 

I logged into my personal account and entered my staff code.  I could contact the Police through the Library Network, which was as anonymously secure as it got—Sys Admin would know I’d made a call, and to whom, but no one else would, ever.  The Library didn’t just dishonorably discharge Librarians who failed to protect Patron Privacy, they permanently discharged them.

The terminal beeped.  I frowned and tapped in my code again. Beep.

  1. A beep is like the universal sign that technology gives us to go screw ourselves. And it always happens at the most inoportune times. But I know Clyota can handle it!

  2. I couldn’t help myself – I pushed the blue button. 🙂 Nice tension this week. Clyota definitely needs help. These words strung together made me smile – “dishonorably discharge Librarians.”
