#ShortShortStories

a cure for the common block

Empty Places

Xin stood up and tried to recall the previous few moments, piece together how she arrived; she turned to examine her surroundings, but there was nothing to examine, she was literally surrounded by nothing at all – well, almost nothing. She stood on solid… something, but as far as she could see in every single direction was white emptiness; as far as she could walk in every direction was the same. She sat down and considered her circumstances, was she here by chance or by purpose? She assumed it to be a pocket Universe, that it was created by an advanced alien intelligence, and that they transported her there, for reasons she did not yet know. While Xin was exceptionally bright, she underestimated the number of people who disappear each year due to spontaneous wormhole events. #ShortShortStories #EmptyPlaces
