"Bombs" Away - Beware the Drones

I once wrote a micro-short story in which the witness in a Federal case is killed by drone. You can read it here...

Just the other day, my grandson got one of those new, rechargeable drones for kids that are launched by lightly tossing it upward in the air. It was a very interesting technological toy I wish I had had as a kid.

Naturally, I had to dream about it. Imagine a large open terrain in which children are on opposing sides. Imagine they've put fireworks on top of drones and launched them. Now imagine this new toy has been updated to be include total steering capability. Sounds like this could result in a little devilish "fun," right? Rather like an advanced version of toy guns?

Now imagine stepping it up a bit... Suddenly fun begins to suggest an onset of unexpected terror...

Amazon has been experimenting with delivering packages by drone! I see you already know this in your story. They made good use of the situation!

I know drones have been used to survey land. In fact, in the county in which I live, there is a drone-surveying business!
