Telling the grandchildren

"Grandpa, what did you do during the Orion war?"
"Child, I was at the front of the lines, along with the other brave men and women. We became titans, ready to fight the endless waves of the horrid Vanduul.

Against countless waves we fought and endured, but our numbers fell. Just when we thought we were going to die, we spotted the most beautiful sights of our lives"

"What was it grandpa? What did you see?"

"We saw Auroras hundreds of Auroras, sun gleaming off of the glass, speeding into battle."

"Auroras grandpa? But they're horrible at combat!"

"No child, they were glorious. Hundreds of them streaked in, cargo containers filled with antimatter. The Vanduul ignored them, concentrating on the surviving heavy ships. But they chose wrong.

In a split second, the battle turned. Hundreds of antimatter explosions lit up the battlefield, catching even more Vanduul ships. Then the reinforcements came. Frigates, cruisers, and even the legendary privately owned Bengals jumped in, filled with reinforcements and firepower. In less then a few minutes, the battle had turned. We were doing it. We were winning. Orion, after all of our sweat, tears, and blood, was finally ours."

"Grandpa, what did you guys do after the battle of Orion?"

"Child, Orion was the point when the Vanduuls started falling apart. We beat the living s*** out of them after it. We made them fear us. Oh, and the Auroras. Thats why they flee when they see one. Antimatter cargo bays."

"Anyways child, the story is over. Who wants bacon!?!"

I like the way you have Gramdpa tell it.

It always makes me think of the Judds song "Grandpa Tell Me About the good ol' Days".

Its a really rough cut, and not terribly well done.

In recording this I learned that my apartment is far too noisy for most recording work.
