Turn About, by Bobby Warner

Candy watched the approach of the enemy drone on her computer monitor screen. It bore down on her building, Sweets, Inc., carrying a nuclear device capable of destroying three square city blocks. Her team had broken the enemy code and learned the transmission frequency of the device’s guidance system.

Candy smiled as she transmitted a counter signal. The remote control craft made a sharp left turn and sped away. A few minutes later a fireball and mushroom cloud rose from the enemy’s submarine headquarters twenty miles offshore. Candy took the rest of the day off, and went to the beach.
