Floating (flash fiction)


Eliza observed the darkness around her as she floated. There was darkness, but there were also bright burning stars too numerous to count. How breathtaking the cosmos truly was. Occasionally she noticed the red blinking light of her emergency beacon as she floated in the deeps of space.

She was the only survivor of the accident. Luckily she was already in a spacesuit when the emergency happened, but the chances of her being found before she ran out of oxygen were absurdly remote. So she decided to enjoy the beauty of the universe for as long as she could.
