Drabble Challenge #90

Prompt: shangri-la

“I'm sorry, but we need you to leave.”

“I don't want to leave!”

“You do know that, even though you don't want to, you are going to have to leave.”

“Please don't make me go.”

“Like it or not, you must leave immediately!”

“But, the birds singing, bubbling brook, bright blue skies and the children laughing. How can you ask me to leave that?”

“I'm sorry, but if you do not leave, we will have to remove you by force!”

“Okay, I'm going, but promise once you have completed the maintenance, I can come back.”

“I promise,” the engineer responds.
