Walking Through the Galaxy
Their spaceship had crashed. The survivors had activated an emergency beacon. Ta’an left the wreckage in search of nearby settlements.
When Ta’an got to a plain, she beheld a breathtaking vista. It was as though there were two galaxies before her: the Milky Way above, and its mirror opposite below; stars in the sky and stars in the sand. The surface was so reflective that as she walked onwards, it was as though she was walking among the stars. They surrounded her. Looking downwards she saw red lights swiftly approaching. She looked up: the rescue ship was above her.
This was written with the prompt stars in the sand provided by the Carrot Ranch August 19 Flash Fiction Challenge.
In other news: we’re in lockdown again due to the Covid 19 Delta Variant suddenly appearing in Auckland and now in Wellington as well. We hadn’t had any community transmissions since February.
