Looming – Friday Fictioneers

“If just one of these threads breaks, it disrupts the whole system,” The big man said.

Tommy knew he wasn’t talking about the loom, other people worked on the loom. Tommy was to have a different job.

The big man shoved the gun in his hand. “Here, it’s named after you,” the big man laughed, more rasp than voice, with an edge that sent a chill up Tommy’s spine.

“The factory is just for show, the real money comes from us, our work, and if one thread in our work breaks, we all go down, understand?”

Tommy nodded, sweating, thinking he’d rather just work the loom.
