Future - A to Z Blog Hop

 My theme is 10x10.
A maximum of ten sentences, a minimum of 100 words.


Looking ahead he saw nothing, he hated this feeling of disorientation, not knowing where he was and all the unusual bright lights which seemed to exaggerate the sensation. Mix it together with the total silence, the effect was other worldly, surreal even.
To read the full story, please check out the Amazon e-book
"A to Z in 10 x 10".
It's only .99!

  6. I like the feeling of peace you end with. He may be dead, he may not, but he is at peace with it either way.

  7. I like the mystery behind this. What caused him to forget what happened after the lone gunman caused him to hit the panic button?

  8. This story gave me goosebumps--not in a bad way. So much in this short story, and I love that his (possibly final) memories are of love, comfort and peace. This is lovely.

  9. Apparently I read too much science fiction, because I didn't even consider that he might be dead until I read the last few paragraphs. Very interesting! Would love to know what you were thinking when you wrote it! He is dead, right?

  10. >>He is dead, right?<<

    I tried to leave that open to YOUR interpretation...now if I were to expand it into a short story, it could go several ways. ;-)

    Thanks to everyone for your wonderful comments...as I re-read this, I could still edit it. Nothing is ever perfect, is it. LOL!

  17. Thanks, Tia. It's not perfect. I have seen things I need to change later. Flash fiction always can be tweaked, I've found.

  18. There are few things I can say with certainty, but I know this... it'll never be perfect. I have to remember this, too, because I hate trying to figure out when to stop editing!
