This week’s Fiction in A Flash Challenge
I’ve been enjoying the many posts inspired by Soooz Burke’s wonderful prompts to the Fiction in A Flash Challenge and decided to give it a try. You can read more and join in here.
The Final Countdown
Any moment now and the final performance of my career will begin. I can’t complain, I’ve had a good run, but I wish I was more prepared.
I’ve wasted so many opportunities. Chances to live, love, create meaningful connections.
Instead, I’m here the way I’ve been most of my life- alone.
It’s not all bad though.
I’m more successful than I could have dreamed. People know my name. They cheer for me. Buy tickets to see me.
I wonder if any of that will matter now.
The gates open and I step through.
My afterlife begins.
