The force field flared with brilliant explosions of light as the meteorites rained down upon Aldric Dewitt’s silver sport hover car. Not for the first time that week he mentally praised the makers of the photosensitive windshield designers. Its immediate reaction dulled the light that would have otherwise left him blind.
