SAD In May — Day Two

May 2, 2014

Prompt: write a drabble; a story of exactly 100 words


By Lori Carlson

The lights on the console were blinking when Lucas regained consciousness. He tried to sit up, but his harness held him in place. He looked to his left but could only see smoke and sparks of electrical units. He pulled at his harness until it finally gave and he fell head first to the floor. Sitting up, he saw the extent of the damage. All twelve members of his crew were dead. The back hull of the ship was crumpled like tin foil. He wiped a window and looked outside. They’d made it. They bloody well made it. Earth. Home.

  1. Oh! That line “They bloody well made it” MAKES the story. The rest is so spare and all of a sudden, an explosion of insight. Well done!

    • Thank you, Julie. I started to leave that out, but now I am glad I left it in =) Thanks for reading me!
