#AtoZchallenge: Vario or Varied

Vario [Spanish] or Varied [English]

Three men hovered over his shoulder as he studied the wires.

"C'mon guys, back up and give me some light."

"What ya gonna do, Chief?"

"He's gonna cut the red one, they always cut the red one."

"That's just for TV you idiot."

Wiping his brow he ordered, "Get me the snips, I think I figured it out."

One of the men hustled off to the work truck and returned with the tool.

"See, told ya, he's gonna cut the red one."

"Shut up, you moron and let him work."

He carefully pulled out the offending wire, snipped it and they all stepped back as the city fell into darkness.

My theme is 10x10.
